SOURCE: air conditioner leaks (drains)into the front passenger seat floor mat

I had the same problem. Drilled a hole in the round plastic extension beneath the glove box, behind the carpet. Now run a coat hanger through it, followed by alot of compressed air. It may take several times, debri from above may be continuosly replugging drain. when you are done, clean thoroughly, and patch with hot melt glue. Good luck.

SOURCE: heated seat 1996 jeep grand cherokee

C1 & C2 in your panel are most likely one of the culprits, if no power at heater at seat. Sounds like testing for power at seat switch is easier to do than get at these circuit breakers in the panel. If you have power at switch at seat, then it's not the fuse/circuit breaker. Good reading at this link for you.

SOURCE: LOCATION OF LIGHTER FUSE FOR 1996 JEEP GRAND

If you have the owner's manual look up fuses in the index, good illustration. If you don't, I do. It shows a relay and a 15 amp fuse. Look at the passenger kick panel, pull the cover, and it is #2 fuse (second from the top on the left) The see the relay you may have to pull the panel (two screws and a clip) the relay is the third cavity down, third row from the firewal side.
Let me know if this works for you?

SOURCE: IAC Valve Location - 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The idle air control valve is located on the back of the throttle body. It has an oval electrical connector and two torx screws holding it in. Unplug the connector, remove the two screws then lightly tap the body with a soft faced mallet to loosen it from the body. 
Once you have it out and prior to installing a new valve clean the seat inside the throttle body where the idle control fits. This must be very clean! Installation is in the reverse order. 
 To save some cash, pull the valve out and clean it with throttle body cleaner, this usually fixes the problem for quite a while.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Hook up battery backwards now can't start did I blow a fuse


Could not find a main fuse in the diagrams I looked at. I would take a test light and go through the underhood fuse blocks and see if they are blown.

98 Jimmy has a power draw it kills the battery within 12 hrs if you pull the 50 amp fuse for the int batt draw goes away any ideas


Yes Steve I do , that fuse supply's power to the I/P fuse block inside the vehicle . It powers AUX/PWR fuse #13 -20amp , RDO/BATT fuse #19 - 15amp ,MIR/LKS fuse #7 - 5amp , CTSY/LP fuse #8 - 15 amp , CIGAR/LTR fuse #2 15 amp , PWR/LKS fuse #14 15 amp , HDLP/SW fuse #1 - 10amp .Do you know where the I/P fuse block is ? You would need to do a parasitic draw test ! This involves hooking up a amp meter in series with the negative battery post an negative battery cable . Pulling each one of these fuses till the battery draw stops ! How To Perform Parasitic Draw Test EricTheCarGuy check out Eric the car guy's video on the subject !

No tail lights no radio no interior light no central locking, no dash board lights


This looks like a blown fuse. You will have to check the fuses, I'd suggest to start with the high amp fuses located in the fuse box hidden between the battery and the left fender, underneath a larger fuse box containing lower amp fuses.
You will see in one row (front of car to back): one fuse in an orange housing, space, 6 fuses. You are probably looking for fuses number 4 (70 A) or 8 (60 A).

If these aren't blown, check the rest - there's quite a bunch of them... As, at this point, you will already have reached the underhood fusebox with 'lower amp' fuses, you can start with the fuses located there. The third fusebox is under the panel you would be able to touch with your left knee while sitting in the driver's seat if you moved forward (if you have your steering wheel on the LH side of the car).

Good luck!

Underhood fusebox fuse #13 50 amp what is it for


The large MAXI fuses in the engine compartment fuse block are the MAIN fuses. They supply voltage to several other fuses or circuits.

MAXI Fuse #13 in your 1996 Ford Ranger is supposed to be a 30 Amp fuse (not a 50 Amp) according to the power distribution diagrams as well as the fuse block detail diagram. This fuse supplies voltage to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) power relay and to the oxygen sensor heater circuits.

Please note that it is NORMAL for this fuse to cause a draw on the battery during vehicle operation and also after engine shut down. The OBD-2 oxygen sensor heater circuit monitors run after engine shut down and key off. This can take up to 45 minutes to complete. After the O2 heater monitor has run, the PCM will go into sleep mode.

When the PCM goes into sleep mode, the battery draw from this fuse will be reduced greatly. If you are performing "ignition-off-draw" tests trying to figure out why the battery keeps going dead, it is best to use an ammeter that has a 1 or 2 amp scale. You should set-up for the test using a shunt bar. Wait for 45 minutes to an hour for all of the computer systems in the vehicle to go into sleep mode, then open the shunt. Your computer memory, radio pre-sets, clock, etc. will continue to draw without ever shutting completely off. Any draw under 300 Milliamps is considered "acceptable". It is my experience that most vehicles have an ignition-off-draw of somewhere near 150 Milliamps.

The underhood fuse box diagram can be found on page 314 in the 1996 Ford Ranger Owner's Manual.

Significant battery draw on my 2007 Honda Odyssey until I remove the fuse labeled "Back Up, ACC". 40A square type fuse. what circuit does this fuse protect?


Fuse #15 "BACK UP/ACC" (40 Amp) in the Underhood Fuse/Relay Box
protects the circuits leading to Fuse #7 "BACKUP" (7.5 Amp) in the Underhood
Fuse/Relay Box and also fuses (#5 "RADIO" (10 Amp), #6 "INTR LIGHT" (7.5 Amp),
#7 "BACK UP" (7.5 Amp), #8 "not used", and #9 "FR ACC SOCKET (10 Amp)
in the Driver's Fuse/Relay Box.
To further narrow down the source of your draw, pull each of these fuses one at a time.
No, that was not a "typo" There are 2 fuses marked "BACK UP" and are both 7.5 Amp and one is
in the Underhood Fuse/Relay Box and the other is in the Driver's Fuse/Relay Box. (I checked this 3 times just to make sure.)

I have replaced the battery, however, I get no juice. What do I have to do to get electricity to the car?


check the main fuse its in the engine compartment near battery.it may be in the relay/fusebox{underhood}or it may be in its own little box its big like 120 amps or so and is not a normal fuse,if blown i would think a trip to honda for a new one would be in order

With the battery charged it will go dead sitting for 3 days. With the battery charged and the positive lead disconnected for 7 days the car will start fine when reconnected although there is some arcing...


theres a draw somewhere. these are sometimes hard to pinpoint.start by checking that all lights turn off,glovebox underhood light all lights,you will need a meter to meter the draw amps, then with key off doors closed look at the draw amount,.02 to.03 is allowable, start removing fuses and watch if amps drop,one fuse at atime, start with this to try and pin down a location of the draw.hope this helps.

Reversed Batter cables


Check both fuse boxes again. You have a blown fuse somewhere and it most likely is one on the main fuses in the underhood fusebox.
