SOURCE: turn signal does not work

HI. Click here to view a troubleshooting page, that will help isolate the issue. The likely culprit will be the Flasher.

The flasher unit can be found under the dash panel attached to a bracket on the right side steering column opening reinforcement. On some models, the flasher plugs into the fuse panel.

The flasher can be removed by pressing the plastic retaining clip and pulling straight rearward. Align the new flasher housing with bracket and push forward until it snaps into the bracket

Click Here to view the fuse box layout picture.

The mounting of the fuse panel is either on the left side of the passenger compartment, under the dash, on the side kick panel or on the firewall to the left of the steering column. Certain models will have the fuse panel exposed while other models will have it covered with a removable trim cover.

SOURCE: DPFE changed out burning smell

Check the fuel system, the pump and the fuel pressure regulator or Mass Air Flow Sensor. Evaporated emissions are the fumes that your fuel gives off. The pollution control system pulls them back into the intake to burn them off when you are running your engine. There is a vacuum line that is leaking between the fuel tank and the sensor that detects this or your gas cap is loose or leaking. It could also be a bad sensor which detects vacuum pressures from the tank. If everything has been check, then check inside the throttle by pulling off your Air pressure Intake then open the throttle by using screwdriver or any tools than can push in one the fuel control line to open, which is attach on the left side of the throttle. and if you look straight inside, you will see three hole. Then look by the bottom and you will see the two hole cover with black burned Oil. This means your fuel mixer (Throttle) is not pushing out air properly it gets clog , and the only way to get out is when you push the Gas peddle which is the burned gas will come all the way out to the Air Intake and it will circulate to any open area. If I was right about this! Your solution is to buy a Air Intake Cleaner or Carb-Throttle Cleaner. with the engine OFF, spray inside the throttle by using the red straw and point it to clean the two black clog hole. then wait for a about10 minutes or more to dry up cleaner after spraying the inside throttle. When you start the engine, black smoke will come out to the muffler. No worry this is normal to the engine, means the cleaner is burning and working to get out. Without cleaning the throttle body, the engine will soon stall, or stop without any giving warning light, because this means your A.C. Pressure Clutch and Idle Pully barring are NO longer working properly and maybe totally wormed out. You may also change the throttle position sensor. and check all your Gas and Oil Intake Hoses for a leak. hope this will help to solve your problem. P.S. You can also spray the Intake cleaner to your Intake Mass Air Flow Pressure Filter before putting it back to the throttle body.
If you have any more question you can email me at Take care and Good luck.

MY MERCEDES BENZ C280 is blowing fuses. The brake lights weren't working. It smells like something plastic is burning. A Mechanic looked at it, he smelled the RELAY BOX, it smelled horrible.

He paid for a garage to fix it. Call a salvage yard and see what you can get the box/harness for. Some boxes are hard wired with the harness. Some aren't, plug/ bolt on harness. Hard wire is a pain. they go every where. Plug in's, just check the connectors for corrosion and being melted. Take yours apart first to see what you have.

Car dashboard lights wont turn on and smell of burning wires

If you're smelling insulation burning - STOP. Fuses should be blowing before insulation melts / burns.

Have the car checked my a trusted mechanic before using anything in the car that makes the wiring burn or melt.

1986 Chrysler Lebaron dashboard lights out

probably the headlight switch. also check the fuse panel. the dash lights should have their own fuse which if blown could indicate an electrical short.

Dashboard light won't go on and them smoke came from under dashboard?

Look at this as a guess and please leave me a thumbs up if I get lucky but NOT a thumbs down if I don't have the right answer OK? I can't afford a bad mark for trying to help someone.
The smoke you saw may have been only the fuse burnning out. This is not a serious thing unless it continues to blow more fuses. We now need to get you under the dash and locate the fuse box. Some boxes are covered by a flap that blends in with the dash so if you don't see the box by looking under the left hand driver side then look for that flap and pull down or off or what ever. Once you find the box you should see a diagram on the front of the cover or behind the cover. You will be looking for one marked instrument panel. But in your case with the smoke you need to check every single fuse. that one fuse may have taken more then one with it. Pull each one 1 at a time and look to see if the wire inside it is melted in the center or blackend. If the wire is good it will look clean and the wire will be one complete wire with an arch to it. That is unless yours are the old glass type but same therory. the wire inside must be complete.
Make sure the key is out of the ignition before replacing the bad one/ones. Replace with only the same amp fuse that came out of it. Mark and remeber where the bad fuse was. After you have checked all the fuses then with your flashlight look at the surrounding wiring for any melted wires under that area of the dash and under where you saw the smoke come from. If you find melted wire under there then remove the bad fuse you replaced until you can get good wire spliced into the melted wire.
If you do not see any melted wire then come up and turn the ignition switch to on and watch and listen for another pop. See if the dash lights come back on if you don't see smoke or hear the pop. If they do then you should be good to go. Fingers crossed at my end. Remember me in your kind works, Raz

For 2009 Nissan Versa SL: Need to Disable Dashboard Lights

There may be a seperate fuse for that feature. The thing to try is find the fuse box. It is generally under the left hand side of the dash on thedriverside butthey have been known in some vehicles to be on the right hand side under the dash and even inside the glove compartment. There are some models that setup the fuse box under the hood as well. If you have an operating manual with your vehicle then the fuse box will be located in there.
Once you find the fuse box then try thist rick.
Locate instrument panel fuse. In this case there should be two with instrument panel listed but if not then it may be all in one fuse. What I woulddo is just turn thekey on so the lights you want off are shinning on so you can see them. Then one by one pull a fuse. If thelight stays on then replace the fuse back in the same spot you took it out of, Continue doing this one fuse at a time and replacing it back in the same spot until the dash lights go out. Then see what the fuse box says about that certain fuse and what all it operates. It may be that you can not disable the dash lights this way without disabling something else you need such as a blinker or heater or radio, but what I am hoping is it has its own seperate fuse. If you arenot sure what it operates by what it says onthe fuse box then once the fuse is out start the car and check all of your other lights including brake lights and blinkers and of course thedash lights that work when your head lights are on. Check all of yourother switch operated devices like the radio and windsheild wipers and heater. Anything that has a switch you can test. Remeber that you may have pulled the fuse that operates the dashlights but there still may be another fuse that operates the dashlights you want disabled, so if the fuse you puilled disabled stuff youneed then replace thefuse and keep pulling more until the dashlights go out again or you run out of fuses to pull. Remeber to turn the headlights back off while you arepulling more fuses. I hope this was helpful, Raz

Signal lights stop workingno sound no lights. Fuse

likely a short
also it is likely the flasher reley was the original problem now you have likely fryed some wiring with what ever you were doing with the signal light switch it is likely you will have to replace the switch also
good luck hope it helps
unplug the switch and replace fuse
if fuse doesnt blow and every thing works
then you likely cliped some wires or striped the sheilding and created a dead short hopefully it hasnt permiated past the plug or you beter buy some tape and zip ties as it is going to be a long night
and i would sugest some A535 rub for your back after laying under the dash tonight

Jimmy electrical burning.

The wire has rubbed somewhere and is shorted to ground. Replace the wire from the door switch to the light, replace the fuse with one of the correct amperage and it should work. Disconnect the battery while you are replacing the wire.
