25A heater fuse keeps blowing on Suzuki x90

Hi

The heater fuse (under the steering column) is continuously blowing each time I replace it with a new one. When the problem first started I just replaced the fuse which held up for almost 2 days. When this second fuse blew, I replaced it with a third which blew as soon as I pushed it into the slot as did the forth one. I'm now running with no climate control fan until I can get it to an autoelectrician.

Not sure if its related but the dash area around the fan switch is really hot, almost too hot to touch, even when the fuse is not in.

Thanks in advance

It sounds like something is shorting out for the fan switch. I would take the dash apart and take a look to see if one of the wires is burnt and shorting out the fan switch. This is most likely the case.

I have a 03 isuzu rodeo and every time I turn the ignition the turning signal fuse blows


Most likely a short in the directional circuit. Start at the blubs and disconnect the connectors at the bulb sockets. disconnect one at a time and see if the fuse continues to blow. When the fuse stops blowing you have found which circuit it is. Also, this could be the stalk switch on the steering column. disconnect and see if the fuse blows, and don't forget the 4 way flasher switch also. Lastly, pull the relay and check if the fuse still blows.

What fuses to check if heat stops blowing


May not be a fuse, but the heater fuses are either located in the kick panel below the steering column or near the driver's side wheel well under the hood.

You may just have a faulty thermostat or be low on coolant, however.

How to replace the flasher for my turn signals?


See Figure 1

The fuse panel is located below and to the left of the steering column.
Fuses are a one-time circuit protection. If a circuit is overloaded or shorts, the fuse will blow thus protecting the circuit. A fuse will continue to blow until the circuit is repaired.

Fig. 1: Main fuse box located on driver's side to the left of the steering wheel, above the brake pedal (top right corner cylinder)


Replacement
  1. Access the fuse panel from the left of the steering column.
  2. Locate the blown fuse and pull out. DO NOT TWIST.
  3. Take note of the ampre number written on the top of the fuse.

To install:
  1. Push a new fuse of the same ampre into the receptacle, making sure the contact is being made on both sides of the fuse.

Good luck, and remember rated this help.

HORN DID NOT WORK SO WENT AND GOT A FUZE PUT IT IN NOW THE HORN STAYS ON WHY IS THAT?


A fuse always blows for a reason. The reason your fuse must have blown was because of a short to ground in the horn switch. That means the power side of the horn switch is currently touching ground or metal or that the switch is bad on the inside. The more remote possiblity is that you have a short somewhere in the wiring harness. It is always typical for a component to go bad before a harness.

Here are some notes directly from chrysler, let me know if you need any clarification:

Testing and Inspection Notes WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIR-BAGS, REFER TO AIRBAGS AND SEAT BELTS/AIRBAGS BEFORE ATTEMPTING STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Remove the lower steering column cover/knee blocker. Check for continuity between the metal steering column jacket and a good ground. There should be continuity If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, refer to Steering and Suspension/Steering Column and check for proper installation of the steering column mounting nuts.
  2. Remove the driver's airbag module. Unplug the horn switch wire connector. Remove the horn relay from the Power Distribution Center (PDC) . Check for continuity between the steering column half of the horn switch feed wire connector and a good ground. There should be no continuity If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, repair the short circuit as required.
  3. Check for continuity between the steering column half of the horn switch feed wire connector and the horn relay control circuit cavity for the horn relay in the PDC. There should be continuity If OK, go to Step 4. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.
  4. Check for continuity between the horn switch feed wire and the horn switch ground wire on the airbag module. There should be no continuity If OK, go to Step 5. If not OK, replace the faulty horn switch.
  5. Depress the center of the airbag module cover and check for continuity between the horn switch feed wire and the horn switch ground wire on the airbag module. There should be continuity If not OK, replace the faulty horn switch.
