SOURCE: 2002 stratus radio wont turn on

i've got the same problem. i've taken it to 2 shops, a master mechanic, and visited the dealership [$$$$]. your body control module [bcm] has an issue. it's the computer behind the fuse pannel. you can TRY to update the driver at the local dealership, but that will run you about $100, and there's no guarantee. worst case, you have to buy a new one from the dealership- $300-400 is what i was quoted. don't bother with a junkyard, as the computers are vin specific and you would still have to pay the$100 to 'reflash/reprogram' it.. but doing that only updates the driver, if applicable, and matches the computer's vin with the vin on your car. once these computers are formatted, they can not be 'wiped' or 'rewritten'. you're gonna have to either deal with the accessories not working, or fork out the $ for a new one. sucks, huh?

SOURCE: Car radio doesn't work

There is a little door between the steering wheel and door. It opens up to a little compartment that you can hold something small in. You can remove that to find the fuses. On the back side of what you removed is the "map" as to what all the fuses are for.

SOURCE: the ac/heater wont turn on. i checked the fuses

It is possible but not very likely. check your floor console fuse block and look at fuse 25(blower) or fuse 26(temp motors)

Radio and blower fan stop working

Probably a blown fuse or a miswire. Pull the radio and revert to stock. If the fan works carefully re-wire the radio with a good diagram.
if the fan is still dead with stock radio setup you may have a short, bad relay or bad temperature switch.
if you understand electrical get a tester and start snooping.
see if any of the manuals contain good wiring diagrams.
if not its best to leave it to the pros. You dont want your car to go up in flames. If you are super concerned about a fire, disconnect your battery when the car isnt in use. SpoonerTuner com Free downloadable Honda Acura Factory Service Manuals...

My radio doesnt work but the fuse box doesnt have a diagram so i dont know which one it is so please help

I do not know the model or year of your vehicle, so it would be hard to say. Check your owners manual if it's not in there do a google search, example:( 2008 Ford Fusion Fuse Diagram)

I have a 1998 chevy blazer, my dash lights are not working(meaning the speedometer illumination, the radio lighting up nor the light up of the heat/ac knobs... i know where the fuse box is and have it...

Hello Keith.
Fuse number 5, which is a 10 amp fuse, in the instument panel fuse box protects the circuit you are looking for.
This fuse is only live when the park lights are turned on at the headlight switch.
This fuse box is on the left side of the instrument panel, down near the door jamb switch.
If you need further advise on this matter, leave me a message here in comments.
Thank you for using FixYa.

I bought a 96 jeep cherokee sport & the interior lights only come on for the front passenger door. the three other doors & the hatch dont turn on the interior lights & i cant find any fuse box...

Can you turn on the lights with the Interior light switch?. If a light works, obviously the fuse is good. You will need a wiring diagram and a test light to figure out where to start.

I cant get the after market radio to work. i followed the color diagram perfectly and it just wont turn on. whats going on? there are two sets of wires and some are even missing...? i dont want to pay...

check for proper ground and check to see if you accidently poped a fuse while connecting the wires.Check to see if there are any in line fuses on the radio wiring and see if they're blown.if not, hook the radio up directly to a car battery(with a fuse in line on the power side) and if it doesnt work then its a problem with the radio, if it does, its a problem with the wiring.

The color of the wires from my old and new radio dont match up!?

Jags are definitely a pure breed. The new radio most likely has writing on the wires that tell where they are to be connected to. I take that back. I just checked the wiring of an older model JVC unit and there or not listings. If your radios doesn't have writing just remember Orange(or yellow) is illumination, and it goes to the fuse block; red is power, going to the fuse block; the big black one is the ant.; the little one is the ground to the chassis. The others are speakers. Connect them to the colors they are closely resembling in your Jag. Connect the power and turn on your radio. You can reconnect the lines to the correct speaker by checking each speaker. hope this helps.

Engine elec prob.

You probably need to change the blower motor relay. Check your fuse box diagram to see if it's in the fuse box. Disconnect the negative battery cable before replacement.

Look in the owners manual (look up fuses in the index) or go to your local library and they should have a manual or they should have an "AllData" system.
I just don't understand why everyone wants to know where the fuses go? If you're redesigning the electrical system then great, you also need a schematics. But if you're trying to troubleshoot something that doesn't work, there may be more fuses then what the fuse panel calls out. For example: Radio - one fuse is shown for the radio when in fact there are three that affect it's operation.
This is the best way to do it. Buy a 12 volt test light. Turn on the ignition and probe both sides of the fuse. Both sides light up, it is good. If neither side lights, connect your light to the positive termanel and probe the fuse again, if both sides light up, it is controlling a ground circuit and is good. And check all the fuses in both the fuse panel under the dash and under the hood. That will tell you if you have any blown fuses. If you need help troubleshooting a particular system then let me know, but do the fuse check first.
I hope this works for you and have a nice day!

How can what fuses are which in a 1995 landrover discovery

Pay close attention to how pattern matches fuse locations, and hold cover so they match. Is it the letters & short forms you don't understand?
