    If somebody knows about those fuze boxes that would be a big help

  • Anonymous Dec 09, 2012

    Mike --there is lots to learn using You Tube when it comes to fuse boxes What your asking is about your vehicles components so you can resolve your issues. That isn't something that can be done over the internet or on a phone. You have to do your own testing Sorry Don't mean to be kert

SOURCE: Heater controls just quit working

I have a 92 Suburban with the same issue (been going on for about a year) AC will turn on when hit a bump in the road... and off with the same type of bump...

I had researched just about everything including replacing the RELAY behind the glove box...

this still didn't help...

finally after replacing most the hardware... I started tracing the wires and found that there is a plug under the glove box there there is a HOT (red) wire that was overheating due to a bad connection and it was melting...

here is where my plug is...
- open the glove box & remove the door
- remove the screws on sides of glove box and remove the glove box it's self...
(you should now see many wires and things)
- now this is where I replaced the relay... I think it was the middle one... if you replace it you will want to refer to a manual or call a dealership to make sure you replace the right one... (it was like $24 or $27)... here is a link to what the relay looks like...
-then if you follow the RED wire out of that relay.... about 3 feet of wire or so.... you will find a connector... with 5 Wires (Mine are colored - Red, Orange, Lime, Black and Green)

** this is the connector that seems to be my problem

Either Replace the Connectors or the (cheap way to fix it is remove the connector and clamp and/or sodier each of the 5 pairs of wires together without the plug... )

I am currently waiting for a new plug from my local dealer but I have bypassed the connector and manually connected the wires until the dealer gets the connector get it...

Hopefully that helps...

SOURCE: 1986 Chevy Caprice Classic Horn not working

Diagram should be on the inside of the fuse box or relay cluster lid/cover. If Test light has 1 wire and a sharp tip? Yes, but only if you push the horn button too ;-)

My guess is that the horn lost its ground, but you can check this with the light. The horn only beeps when both GROUND and Pos 12v are present. The horn button gives the relay 12v to close, and the relay gives the horn 12v to operate. The ground is always connected.

Connect tester clipwire to 12v source (battery, headlight (has to be on) and touch its tip to metal of car. Does it light? Good. the tester is working and the 12v is a good source.

Touch one of the 2 horn connection or wires (poke it thru the plastic - why tip is sharp). Does it light? Touch the other, does it?

If both light, (1 will be brighter) we can assume the horn coil is good and it is getting a good ground and I was wrong (it happens... but not often). The side that is BRIGHTER is the ground wire side.

Now have someone mash the horn button. Do you hear a tiny click? That is the horn relay. If not, look for the horn relay fuse and replace it. If you DID hear the click, the relay coil is good and is trying to switch 12v to drive the horn.

Now is time to locate and replace the horn fuse or the relay may have bad contacts. Look at the other relay part numbers in the cluster and see if there is a match for the horn one. Swap it out and try the horn.

Hope this all helps. To 'test' the horn, touch the dim side again anf listen for a scratching sound. That is the 12v going thru the tiny bulb in the tester (a resistance) and trying to drive the horn.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Brake lights dont work but the other tail lights do

Check the brake light switch under the dash attached to the brake peadal arm. It is wher the break booster push rod attaches. Sometimes that switch works loose.

SOURCE: Honda Accord 1999 Fuse box diagram

I have the same problem with my 99 accord. For the past few years, I have been able to change out the fuse in the fuse box on the passenger side under the hood of the car up near the windshield. There is a map of the fuses on the top of the box. Hope this helps!

I pulled a charger out my 1991 Chevy caprice car lighter n it sparked. My glove box light my cigarette lighter and the trunk button wont work no more. Wut cud b wrong?

You popped the fuse in the fuse box. If you still have the owners manual it will tell you which one it is. If not use a test light and turn the key on and test both sides of all the fuses. The bad fuse will only light the test light from one side of the fuse.

1996 Camry reverse lights don't work

Check if you are getting power to the reverse light switch. Turn ignition on, disconect terminals to the switch and check for power on the positive terminal using a light bulb or a test meter whatever. If power is there jumpthe 2 terminals and check if light backup light works. If it does replace switch. If ther is no power at switch check wiring from fuse box. If light does not work when switch is jumped check wiring to back.

Fuse block testing for a 1993 chevy astro van

With a testlight you can check every fuse in the box without pulling a single fuse in about 10 minutes.
Find a good ground for the testlight near the fusebox. The tops of the fuses have a little opening on both ends that accept a testlight's probe.
Start by turning key to on (engine off), and turn lights on. Now every fuse in the fusebox will be powered. You touch the probe into both ends of each fuse to test them. Good fuses will light the tester on both ends. Bad fuses will only light up on one end.
Good luck.

Washer fluid does not squirt out

It should be under the dash. Check your owner's manual. Most fuses run more than one thing. Read carefully. If you don't have a manual, just use a test light, grounded to the door hinge. Touch the light to each side of each fuse at the back where you see silver.(without unplugging them) With the key on, there should be power to each side of the fuse. If not, then that's your bad one.

My remote key fob and the button on the dash, no longer open the back tailgate / liftgate on my 1999 Chevy Suburban. I'm guessing a fuse is blown, but I don't have an Owners Manual to look it up. Can... this link takes you to an online manual for your vehicle, after clicking on this link go to the "service and appearance care" and then "electrical systems" this shows you a layout of fuse box

Please rate my help, thanks

97 Chevy truck cluster and transmission

I would say its your Ignition switch or the fuse for tranny is blown or the tranny is unplugged.My truck had a problem where it was stuck in third gear, the tach never moved,the gear indicator light went out.I left it at the tranny shop all day and nobody could find the problem.All you need to do is check your fuses with a test light.I looked at all my fuses and they were all good but when I used a test I found that some fuses didnt have power supplied to them from the ignition switch.Your fuses need power on both sides to complete that circiut.So I would say go get a test light because they are cheap and check your fuses before you go right back to the parts store for that ignition switch.Good Luck
