Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a Jensen CD6112 deck installed in my Focus. The fuse blew so I pulled the deck out and replaced the fuse and it blew. I also disconnected the the power to it put in a new fuse and reconnected the power and it blew again. I have checked the wires and they look fine. If I was to go back and rewrap the wires with tape should I A) individually wrap each wire OR B) wrap them all together in one bundle of wires? If the wires are not the issue what are the other possibilities of what could be wrong?

Unwrap all of the wires and redo each one individually and hopefully you did not do permanent damage to the unit.

SOURCE: interior dash lights

you can go to radio shack or a place that sells stereo equipment and get an installation kit and I hope he did not cut the plugs off the old radio because it would be easy all you would have to do is plug in your installation kit to your old plugs and it will tell you which wire goes where most kits are around $15.00

SOURCE: Secondary air injection pump, 01 GMC Jimmy V6

You didn't mention the fuse rating of the one you replaced so this method may not help if it was higher than ~5 amps.At this point, I would wire a 12 volt bulb, preferably, one with 40-50 watts rating (headlamp will do fine) in place of the fuse that is blowing and start pulling likely connectors until the light goes out. If you don't get results this way, you might try disturbing one bundle of wire after another since this could be happening because of insulation that has been pinched or worn through to reach ground.
Using a bulb instead of bridging the fuse with a piece of coathanger will prevent melting the wire and possibly compounding the problem.

SOURCE: 1998 chevy lumina pcm ign fuse keeps blowing

Update: I took the car to a mechanic that specializes in auto electrics and he found that the wire that goes to the back oxygen sensor had chaffed through over the transmission and was shorting out and blowing the fuse. He repaired it and the car runs beautifully.

Trunk release button on 2001 ford focus will not work


So your trunk release button on the dash dpesn't seem to open the trunk.
Does your key fob button open the trunk? yes....then could be problem with switch but read on.
no......are your power door locks not working as well. not working.....check
fuse, on 2001 Focus the fuse is a 20amp number 63 on the back of the fuse panel under the dash. Pop cover off and undue the rwo screws. hold plastic retainers and pull off the fuse panel from metal frame. pull fuse panel down toand turn over so you can see the fuse.check fuse. blown? yes.......replace fuse with good one. test all door locks open/close then check fuse...if its blown the problem is something to do with the door lock circuits. if the fuse is still ok...try pushing the trunk open button. fuse still ok? then I am a loss toas to whats the problem but if the fiuse blew when trying the trunk button your problem is the trunk latch circuit.
Now if the trunk latch button is popping the fuse then disconnect wiring to
trunk latch (in trunk) and try the button again. Still blowing the it is the electrical before the trunk latch unit. If it did now blow the problem is something to do with the part of the circuit you disconnected.
How to go farther and find the problem exactly is not covered in this answer. You have to take it from here. JAG

Hello my name is Sean and I have a 2002 ford focus wagon with a 2.0 motor. The blower fan for the heat and air has stoped working. I have ordered a new blower fan and resistor but havent received yet. I...


the fan motor is maybe bad, disconnect it (the motor) and put in new fuse, if its ok, then the motor is bad. the resistor only handles speeds lower than HIGH. so replace the motor first, then try it, if all speeds work, then the resistor is OK.

Chev silverado 2000 speedometer and sterio deck not working


You probably blew a fuse and the other affected components are on the same fuse. Check the fuse blocks for any blown fuses and replace as necessary.
