First,check your fusible link,your positive battery cable goes to starter and a fusible link is incorparated,it could be burnt or melted,not giving power to starter,if link is good then here's how to remove and take to Autozone to have tested,it's free and only takes a few minutes.

You say blows fuse,
Are you talking about the Blower Fan, or the Thermistat for the Compressor.
If it is the Blower Fan It may be seized as the Blower Fan motor doesn't have bearings it has a bronze bush & may be stuck. I had this fault on my 76 244DL.
I had to dismantle the whole dash pull the Blower Fan apart re grease the bush & give it a clean & re assemble. It took me allll day to pull the dash apart fix the Blower Fan motor & reasemble It works perfect now like new.

If it is the Thermistat disconnct the wire to the compressor & try a jumper wire to the compressor to see if the compressor operates. if ok it could be a damaged wire through the firewall shorting somewhere. You will have to buzz out the wires from thermistat down to the compressor & the throttle up solonoid.

hi, the problem you are having sounds like the starter motor has packed up if when you turn the key you get nothing or you might even hear a faint click, if you open the bonnet then get someone to turn the key you might hear a faint click coming from the starter motor. This click indicates the starter motor needs replacing.

you could try hitting the starter motor with a hammer give it a few good hard hits this might get the starter motor working for a while if not then it needs replacing at once if it works then this isnt a permanent fix so be warned.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

There can be a starter lock-out which requires your to foot press the clutch or the brake pedal. But without lights you have a different problem.

Check your fuse block for power. There is a Master link somewhere under the hood and they usually put them close to the Positive side of the battery. The Master link is like a fuse only in wire form. You will also find a heavy wire that supplies power to the fuse block. Often the fusible link and the feed wire to the fuse block are the same wires.

Your Alternator, battery, etc. will test good all day long, but you need power in the fuse block.

Turn the Ignition to ACC and notice if the radio has power or turn the key to run and notice if the Brake lights work when you press the brakes.

If you have power there, then troubleshoot the wire to the starter relay. Most likely when you turn the ignition key(start) you will not have power going to the starter relay like you should. You can also test the coil Positive wire with the key in RUN position.
It should have power.

That's all I have for you.

2001 volvo v70 will not start , put key in ignition but makes only small scratching noise


if all other functions are working this sounds like the start motor is defective. if the motor is worn it may turn slowly but too showly for the drive head to jump out and engage the engine flywheel.
to test your battery is ok try starting the car with the headlights on if the battery is weak the lights will dim a lot or go out and will not have enough power to start the car. if all seems fine then suspect the starter motor.
as one final test push start your car if it starts ok then this will indicate that most likely the starter motor has failed.

after starting your car and your battery is ok, switch off and try to start normally, if the car starts this time it indicated that the starter motor was stuck, this could be an indication that it will need replacement soon.

Where is the starter relay on a 94 Honda Accord


Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.
