You will need to contact the dealer on this. There are lots of parts like this in the car.

Which is the fuse For the alternator


While you did not post make, model or year it could be a inline fuse on the small red wire coming off the battery, you would feel a spongy section in the wire not far off the battery and if blown would be melted a bit. I know of no fuse in the fuse box for an alternator.

The Fuel Pump relay fuse is either shorting out or becoming too hot that it is pushed out of the socket, causing the car to shut down. What's causing this


If the relay had been loose in the fuse box that can cause the melting. i've seen fuse panels where the conectors are actualy loose in the box so as you push relay in it is actualy forcing the connector out the bottom of the box. use a small screwdriver to push down gently on each connector in the fuse box to see if this is whats happening. relay are plentiful at the local wrecking yard or buy new. the either work, dont work os sometimes stick on. this will cause battery drain overnight . if the connector is loose in the box you'll have to lift the whole fuse box to try to push it back in. if it wont stay in the fuse box may have melted and will need replacing unless u can handle moving all the wires to another relay spot if the box will allow it

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

AC fan control in car only works on high. Started with no. 4 not working then 1,2&3 stopped, now only runs on no. 5


This will work, I have done it 3 times!
open glove compartment, squeeze sides so the whole thing tips out. Take a flashlight and look straight ahead, you will see an electrical part, unscrew the 2 bolts, and disconnect the wires. Take it to your dodge dealer, regular parts stores won't have the part. get a new one and put everything back.
this is easier than pumping gas.
