Fuse box location for 1998 Cadillac Sedan Limousine


Probably several. One under hood, one in trunk behind upholstery at front of trunk (back of back seat), and maybe one under dash.

How do i open Mercedes-Benz 1998 E320 trunk from the fuse box under the hood


You may be able to unlock the trunk from the door lock pump under the back seat. Remove the rear seat bottom and the insulation from the right side. You'll see the battery and a foam box. The door lock pump (PSE) is in the foam box. You need to remove the vacuum line for the trunk latch (labeled RTR or RHR on the PSE pump) and apply some air pressure to it to unlock the trunk. You should then be able to open the trunk normally, unless the trunk lock key tumbler is in the lock position, then you need a key to get in.

I have a 1997 volkswagen jetta gl 2.0 and while i was driving suddenly my alarm goes off, so i shut off the car and go outside to unlock the doors and lock them to shut off the alarm but that doesnt work,...


I have heard of VW's of this era having issues with water getting on the alarm module board, which causes the alarm to go off without rhyme or reason. I believe the seal around the water deflectors near the windshield cracks or degrades. The alarm module should be under the hood near the windshield on the driver's side, under a plastic cover. If you can locate it, you could try drying it off and seeing if that helps.
An alternative is that the wiring in the door could be getting wet, if the seals are no longer good.
If you just need to make it *******, remove the fuse for the horn, if you can find it.

Where are the fusebox locations on the 1996 caddilac sts


The fuse block is located next to the air filter on the driver's side of the engine. Lift the cover to gain access.

The Maxi-Fuses and relays are located next to the engine compartment fuse block on the driver’s side of the engine.

The rear fuse block is located on the front wall of the trunk behind the rear seat on the driver's side. Loosen the four trunk trim fasteners and pull the trim away from the fuse block to gain access.

For other details and description about specific fuse can check the 1996 Cadillac Seville STS - Owners Manual (page 314 and next).

Hope helps (remember comment and rated this).

How to reset 1995 nissan sentra security system


larrylisa2: When you refer to reset, do you mean arm the system?
If so, it can be done providing all the doors, the trunk and hood are closed.
Using your key, you can lock the drivers door or passenger's door and it will arm the system. The trunk, all the doors and hood must be closed.
You can also arm the system without the key in the same fashion insuring all the doors, trunk and hood are closed.
To disarm the unit, you can do this from the driver's door, front passenger's door or the trunk lock.
The other option is the remote. There is one other way to shut down the alarm system. Disconnect the negative battery cable, put the ignition key in the run position and reconnect the cable. This will keep the system from arming until the car is locked.
There is no reset procedure other than the ones I have described.
