Hello , if when you replace the fuse the vehicle starts and this fuse is for the ews check for a oil level sensor shorted or the wires going to it defective, this is wired in the same loom as the ews and the short will cause the fuse to go and the ews will not have power /when it rains the water will aid to the problem

1998 Jeep Laredo continuous clicking sound passenger side under dash it runs battery down ignition is off continuous clicking please help thank you


A number of people in the link report the same problem on the Jeep Forum and there are a number of fixes.

I also found this for you.

The problem seems to be a short in one of the rear dome lights, which seems to be affecting two fuse circuits. The temporary solution was to remove one fuse and replace another (blown), and remove the bulb from the bad dome light. I had to remove "fuze#5-15 amps-Interior Lighting", this stopped the clicking noise, I replaced blown fuze#8-15 amp-Overhead Console, keyless Entry ..." This fuse also seems to effect the alarm system (contrary to the documentation), and I think that was what was killing the engine. The problem existed before fuse#8 blew. Removing fuse#5 may have solved the problem, but the other fuse blew while I was testing the dome lights, and the jeep will not start without it.

Found lots of wires bare or broken in all the door wiring harnesses ( in rubber boot that goes to the door)I first checked both fuse 5 and 8 but both o.k. After fixing the broken wires found fuse 8 had blown. Replaced that and all is well again. Thanks for the advise got me looking in the right direction.

. Fuse box located in passenger side door jam...check #8 fuse if its not blown check others...if it is blown, check your radio, and interior lights for good ground
Clicking noise under passenger dash Jeep just shuts down

I have a 1994 bonneville 3.8-i replaced my fuel pump recently, i keep having my fuel injector fuse blow, i took the injectors off and tested and cleaned them,the car seems to run real good


You have a short in the wiring to the fuel pump.. Go back and check all the wiring you touched. you may have not routed the wires at the tank correctly and they are shorted (crushed).. SINCE IT HAPPENS SOMETIMES.. I WOULD put in a new fuse turn on the key start the engine and look at the wires near the fuel pump and move them to see if you can create the short and find it. you will know when you find it because the engine will stop running as the fues blows. Don't take anything else apart till you cure the first problem. The very worst thing it can be is a short inside the tank at the pump. Post and let us know what you find.

Does a 1994 Chevrolet Silverado c1500 have a fuel pump


Yes, it has an electrical fuel pump located in the gas tank. First check the fuel pump fuse located in the fuse panel on the left outer side of the dash. You can only access this panel with the driver's door open. It is located near the black button for the dome lights and chime.

It is a 20-amp fuse. Replace it if it is blown, but ONLY with a 20-amp fuse. The wire harness for the fuel pump sometimes goes bad, or the pump motor, or the wire harness inside the tank to the pump motor. If the blown fuse is replaced with a larger-amp fuse, you could cause a fire or explosion.

If it blows the replacement fuse, stop. Fuses blow for a reason, 9 times out of 10. Call a tow truck to remove the truck to a qualified repair shop.

I have a dawoo matiz car .790cc year 2000.wich keeps blowing the e.c.m fuse and this cuts off the fuel supply. sometimes it starts ok then suddenly it blows again i checked the fuel pump and seems


Check exactly when you do have a blown fuse as you are driving and in turning or as you driving normally. Also check the wires between E.C.M and Engine. The fuel Supply cuts off surely as soon as the E.C.M Fuse is blown because the fuel supply is going through the E .C. M.

Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on my 95 Crown Vic


Using a smaller fuse should make the problem happen more often.
A mechanic would unplug the pump harness at the tank and check the circuit for high resistance or a short to ground.
If nothing is found in the harness, I would suspect the pump in the tank.

I NEED A FUSE BOX DIAGRAM FOR A 1986 MERCEDES 300SDL


The fuses are identified on a card attached to the inside of the fuse panel cover. A spring clamp holds the cover in place. The fuses are available wherever German Auto Parts are available. Volkswagen - after market fuses seem the most plentiful. They are color coded .. replace same for same. For example on a 84 300SD fuse 18 controls the Power Windows LF & RR & is a 16 AMP. Fuse 5 is a 25 AMP for the seats. A fuse burns out because their is a problem .. for example .. a slight rear end crash could short at tail light socket & crush the bulb .. Fuse 1 an 8 AMP fuse would blow .. this would also cause you to lose your taillights . warning system & Instrument illumination , as they all share the same circuit. a blown fuse .. melts.

40 amp ignition fuse blew. I replaced the fuse and now the lights all go on when the key is turned on but the vehicle will not start...or even try to start. The battery is fully charged.


The 40 amp maxi fuse in the underhood junction block (According to the information I have, there is only one 40 amp fuse in there..) goes directly to the ignition switch. From there, it goes to the buss bar in the Instrument Panel Fuse Block where it feeds several smaller fuses. It also feeds the starter relay in the Underhood Fuse and Relay Center.

My biggest concern would be: What caused the fuse to blow in the first place?

If you get nothing else from my preaching, get this:

Fuses don't blow for no reason....ESPECIALLY not a 40-amp Maxi Fuse!

I can't count how many times I have heard people say: "It's JUST a blown fuse." WHAT???

I have been at this for 35 years and I can tell you that blown fuses are reason for major concern in my book. That 40-Amp Maxi Fuse just saved your truck from burning to the ground and you need to find out why!

The only way that fuse is going to blow is if there is a direct short to ground between the Underhood Fuse and Relay Center and the Instrument Panel Fuse Block (The only "component" between these two is the ignition switch.) or if the secondary side of the starter relay circuit is shorted to ground. The secondary side of the starter relay feeds the "S" terminal of the starter solenoid. (at the starter)

I think the first place I would look for the problem would be the circuit between the starter relay and the starter. It is likely to be shorted against the exhaust or engine block. If this is the case, it most likely fried the starter relay in the process. (which is why the fuse no longer blows and the engine no longer starts)

Aftermarket remote starting units are also usually tied into this circuit. If your vehicle has one of these, it could very likely be the original source of your problem.

At any rate, there should be no rest, truck running or not, until the reason for the blown fuse is found. You will most likely get the truck running in the process of locating the reason for the blown fuse.
