SOURCE: 95 jaquar van dan plas......fuse boxes

Hi, there are 5 main fuse boxes on the vehicle.
One is located next to the battery in the trunk
One is located on top of the passenger fender in the engine bay
One is located on top of the drivers fender in the engine bay
and there are 2 in the heel boards below the rear seats (behind a carpeted panel)
In the engine bay on the right side you should have a compartment for tools, on the inside of that compartment there should be a fuse indentification diagram.
Thanks and good luck...
Also if you dash backlights do not work, its more and likely the dimmer switch that has failed which is located on the left side of the steering column shroud next to the column movement switch.

My 2007 chev aveo wont start and cant move gear shift

most cars the brake light switch has to work properly for it to come out of gear and start properly. check this switch! Also First check to see if you have brake lights (if not the switch may have failed) secondly when with the ignition key on when you press the brake pedal do you hear a click from the area of the gear shift lever each time you press the brake pedal? If not the control module, wiring or solenoid may have a problem. First check all your fuses! Hope this helps, Good-Day!

Hi, Something is still on when you leave the car (light) or (Fan) That is why the battery was dead.
Could be a trunk light or alarm system that is on or even a door light. Check these out.
If engine does not start check fuel pump (listen for pump just before cranking the engine). Check fuel pump fuse too. Check the distributor and rotor for cracks. Good luck.

Car starts and runs fine. Wont shift out of park. Tried looking for vacuum line unsuccessfully. Shifter moves freely, but doesn't engage other gears or neutral.
