Question about 1991 Ford Probe

1 Answer

Replaced the battery but when I go to start the fuses blow

I put a new battery in my 1991 Ford Probe but the main fuse blows when I try to start it. I wasn't the one who took the battery out so am wondering if I may have the cables hooked up wrong. Which cable goes to which post? They both go into a loom so I can't tell where they are connected after leaving the battery.

You carnt get them to fit the terminals properly one terminal on your battery is bigger than the other,if it is blowing the fuse when you crank it over it might be a starter problem

1991 Miata Help! Won't start, nothing at all on key turn, STILL after battery replacement. Help!


The main fuse blew. Look in your fuse box for a big fuse it should be labeled main or master fuse. Replace this fuse and vehicle should work everything but maybe the starting issues. You have a short somewhere. If the fuse blows again or the car won't start repost the problem

ok first there could be a direct short in the ecu causing the fuse to blow OR the alternator/starter solenoid could be shorting out and blowing the fuse unhook the alternator and see if it blows the fuse then repeat with the starter and the ecu and let me know what happens

Will not start, does turnover, but seems to be getting no gas. will turn over if i spray auto start in the carborator.


check fuel filter to see if its clogged. (cheapest easiest)
if that doesnt work rebuild carburetor (expensive but fairly simple)
if that doesnt work pull tank if it is low on gas or pull bed if gas tank is full a replace fuel pump (time consuming, hard to do, but fairly inexpensive) I had this problem on a silverado I had and it was the fuel pump.

You might have better luck looking for 'relay box' as I had a number of hits on that phrase:
http://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GGLS_en-USUS291&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=1991+ford+probe+"relay+box"

If you can find a replacement, you might want to pull fuses and relays and coat them with either dielectric grease or at least petroleum jelly (Vasoline) to protect them. Fuse/relay boxes next to the battery have a hard life because of the fumes from it and once the contacts start to corrode, a meltdown is a lot more likely.
