Question about Cadillac DeVille
Whuz happenin! I got a problem starting the vehicle. The 50 amp maxifuse in the fuse box under the hood keeps blowing when I turn the key to start the vehicle. I have never had this problem before.I drove the car all day had no problems and it just happened out of nowhere. Thecar has 117000 miles on it and is in excellent condition.I do have a problem with the rear tailight not working . The turn single and brake light still work but I have no running lights.Could this problem be causing the problem I have now or is it something else? The fuse blows when I put a new one for the rear tailight. Could something touching causing this problem be causing the car not to start? Thank you for any information can give me to help.
Sounds to me that something is deffinently shorting out. I would check the wiring for any point that may be bare and making contact with the metal part of the car. I would also unbolt the fuse pannel and make sure that there is not a bare wire shorting out on the back side of thefuse pannel. Also something else I have seen happen in commercil vehicles ( BIG RIGS ) is that a lite bulb has burnt out and the filament from the bulb is actually arcing out on the hot side of the other filament. Worth looking at and good luck.
