Question about Cars & Trucks
I just installed a remote car starter and after i tested it i had a problem with all my running lights and dashlights not working, i have looked through everything and nothing appears to be hooked up wrong, i previously had it hooked up on a 94 chevy and i had no problems with it, i have no power at my illumination fuse and just to see i fed a hotwire into my switch with a 5 amp fuse on it and it worked fine for a day now it just keeps blowing that fuse

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

SOURCE: blower motor will not work
Do further tests at the relay to ascertain whether the fault lies before or after the relay.
Check power availability at the supply side of the relay contacts - should have 12v from a supply fuse on one side of the normally open contact (note -this supply may only be available when Ign or Acc sw is on).
If power supply is ok at the relay contact, check control input to relay operate coil.
If a ground (or 12v) operates the relay, operate the relay with a local ground (or 12v) and check blower motor runs.
If all above OK, check control signal from fan switch is arriving at the relay control coil.- if not trace wiring back to the switch.
