This is a VERY bad mistake. It is impossible to tell what else is wrong and most likely other damages have been done apart from fuses.
You need an auto electrician to help you fix your Toyota.

SOURCE: no brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park

I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.

SOURCE: Just recently my 98 Toyota Corrolla has started blowing a fuse.

I would remove the dome light, and disconnect the wiring connector, and then put in another fuse. If it does not blow, I would think that the dome light switch is shorted to ground.

SOURCE: wiper fuse blows as soon as you insert one

start at the wiper motor harness and follow it back( even if wrapped up with other wires) you are simply goin to check carefully along harness and check it hasn't rubbed through and it's making contact with steel, with go through firewall at some point, that is a good spot for rubbing, but check it all carefully.

It is possible that if your old alternator was shorted out, it could have caused the main fuse to blow. The fuse is located in the engine compartment fuse box. It is an 80 Amp fuse and sits off to the right - all by itself. (See picture)

NOTE: There is also a chance that there is something else wrong that may have caused this fuse to blow. If it blows again upon replacing it, you need to inspect the wire that runs between this fuse and the alternator - it may be shorted to ground. If this is the case, you probably did not need to replace your alternator.

Diagnosis for battery terminal wrongly fitted


Do you know what make, model, year of vehicle it is? Was it a new/fully charged battery? If so then probably blew a few main fuses, ECU, alternator and other electricals.

Hi, first thing to do and if you know location of the fuse box take light tester and test each fuse may you find some fuses blew. change theme first. if you change the fuses and the the problem for each item you describe still on that mean damage went to the items you say.

Hooked up battery wrong and blew the fusible link. Replaced the link. now car starts but alternator not putting out and the left kick panel fuses are dead. any ideas on how to fix would be greatly...


May have blown some fuses under the hood. Check for an alternator maxi fuse, also a fuse that sends power to the fuse panel, or that might be another fusible link for the panel. You may need the alternator tested, might have ruined that, also.

I have a 84 d15 dodge. the battery won't hold a


Sounds as if you have a short draining the battery overnight. Take the battery negative off and run a 12volt test light between the terminal and the ground post on the battery. leave the key out of the ignition switch. see if there is a dim or bright light glowing in the test light. If either one is the case start pulling out your fuses and watching the light until the light goes out. When it goes out y have identified the circuit your short is in. ( headlamps, door switches, ect. ) Make sure to put each fuse back in the proper place so as not to burn anything up!!!!. By the way , you did NOT keep the positive battery terminal off to see if the alternator was charging did you? If you did you just burned up your new alternator,which by the way will give your battery a direct short to ground through the diode trio in the alternator, thus causing the battery to very quickly drain. and Why should you have to jump start a NEW battery? Check to see if you are lucky enough to have a charging fuse, if you did the positive off while running thing that fuse could save you if you have it.

1983 Chevy Silverado, Glow plug light will not come on, Truck will turn over but not start, fuse panel has no blown fuses, I suspect the Glow Plug Relat but I don't know how to verify it is bad.


With most relays, you have 4 wires. One is power to the component the relay controls, one is a ground to the relay magnet, one is power to the magnet, and the fourth goes to the component, in this case the glow plugs. The ground usually comes from the computer.
With the key on you should have power to two terminals and you would jumper the hot terminal to the glow plug terminal. Or use a test light or meter to check for power on the glow plug circuit.

Olds 88 alternator fuse


You may find a blown fusible link or burnt wire/bad connection at the starter large terminal.I would start the car and check voltage output at the alternator output terminal first in case it's just a bad alternator.If you have 14+ volts at the alternator output terminal,you could also just run a 10 gauge wire from that terminal to battery positive directly and disconnect the alt feed to the starter terminal.

I have a 1984 dodge D150, not charging, battery is good,charges with charger\r\ntruck starts and runs pretty good,but is running off of battery, NEW altenater,regulator,and belts belts are tight,replaced...


The first thing you need to do is stop wasting your money by replacing parts. Then get a volt-ohm meter and a test light to test the circuits between the battery, the alternator, the ignition switch, the starter relay and the voltage regulator. (a.k.a. Charging System Circuits)

To start, the "B+" or "BATT" terminal on the alternator (large black wire) MUST have a solid, direct connection to the battery. Check for the proper voltage here. Then, the red wire on the alternator at the "F2" terminal should be HOT at all times. If not, you probably still have a bad fuse link that you missed. The "F1" terminal on the alternator (Light Green wire) is known as your "FIELD" wire. It comes from the "IG" terminal at the voltage regulator. It should be hot any time the key is in the ON position. If not, your voltage regulator is not working or your ignition switch is not providing power to the regulator. Finally, The "F" terminal (Red wire) at the regulator should be hot any time the ignition switch is in the ON position. This actually gets it's power from the starter relay, which gets its power from the ignition switch.

there is a chance that the battry is faulty but there is also a chance that the alternator is drawing voltage back out of the battry when its not charging, this would be because the diods that stop the voltage flowing back have broken down. to see if this is the problem charge the battry,refit, but put a bulb in line on the possitive teminal if its glowing bright the alternator is drawing back try disconecting the altenator and testing it again if the bulb stops glowing you know its the altenator, dont forget the interior light will make it glow too. its also worth checking the earth straps.
