SOURCE: no power to fuses on Fiat 14 ducato van (1987) alternator charging, headlights, horn, hazard all ok, no power to indicators, wipers, heater fan, fuel gauge, temp gauge. all fuses are ok, engine starts

Sounds like the relay is bad, look in the fuse panel or under the dash for a lil black box, they are usually appx 1"' x 1" and there should be several of them. You may want to check owners manual or a repair manual to find the location. They should be listed in the schematic of the fuse box as well.

Contact Fiat dealer service center and they can get you the code for your car for a fee from the vehicle data system. They will ask you for your VIN (vehicle identification number ) and most likely proof of ownership.

Has new battery,starter,and alternater I can jump it to start it but after it sits overnight it wont start please help

I've encountered this with my 2000 dodge mini van. The problem lies in the IOD circuit. Best fix is a battery disconnect switch for overnight parking. Here's info: IGNITION-OFF DRAW TEST
The term Ignition-Off Draw (IOD) identifies a nor-
mal condition where power is being drained from the
battery with the ignition switch in the Off position. A
normal vehicleicon1.png electrical system will draw from fif-
teen to twenty-five milliamperes (0.015 to 0.025
ampere) with the ignition switch in the Off position,
and all non-ignition controlled circuits in proper
working order. Up to twenty-five milliamperes are
needed to enable the memory functions for the Pow-
ertrain Control Module (PCM), digital clock, electron-
ically tuned radio, and other modules which may
vary with the vehicle equipment.
A vehicle that has not been operated for approxi-
mately twenty-one days, may discharge the battery
to an inadequate level. When a vehicle will not be
used for twenty-one days or more (stored), remove
the IOD fuse from the Integrated Power Module
(IPM). This will reduce battery discharging.
Excessive IOD can be caused by:
• Electrical items left on.
• Faulty or improperly adjusted switches.
• Faulty or shorted electronic modules and compo-
• An internally shorted generator.
• Intermittent shorts in the wiring.
If the IOD is over twenty-five milliamperes, the
problem must be found and corrected before replac-
ing a battery. In most cases, the battery can be
charged and returned to service after the excessive
IOD condition has been corrected.
(1) Verify that all electrical accessories are off.
Turn off all lamps, remove the ignition key, and close
all doors. If the vehicle is equipped with an illumi-
nated entry system or an electronically tuned radio,
allow the electronic timer function of these systems
to automatically shut off (time out). This may take
up to twenty minutes.
(2) Disconnect the battery negative cableicon1.png.
(3) Set an electronic digital multi-meter to its
highest amperage scale. Connect the multi-meter
between the disconnected battery negative cable ter-
minal clampicon1.png and the battery negative terminal post.
Make sure that the doors remain closed so that the
illuminated entry system is not activated. The multi-
meter amperage reading may remain high for up to
three minutes, or may not give any reading at all
while set in the highest amperage scale, depending
upon the electrical equipment in the vehicle. The
multi-meter leads must be securely clamped to the
battery negative cable terminal clamp and the bat-
tery negative terminal post. If continuity between the
battery negative terminal post and the negative cable
terminal clamp is lost during any part of the IOD
test, the electronic timer function will be activated
and all of the tests will have to be repeated.
(4) After about three minutes, the high-amperage
IOD reading on the multi-meter should become very
low or nonexistent, depending upon the electrical
equipment in the vehicle. If the amperage reading
remains high, remove and replace each fuse or circuit
breaker in the Integrated Power Module (IPM), one
at a time until the amperage reading becomes very
low, or nonexistent. Refer to the appropriate wiring
information for complete Integrated Power Module
fuse, circuit breaker, and circuit identification. This
will isolate each circuit and identify the circuit that
is the source of the high-amperage IOD. If the
amperage reading remains high after removing and
replacing each fuse and circuit breaker, disconnect
the wire harness from the generator. If the amperage
reading now becomes very low or nonexistent, (Refer
TESTING) for the proper charging systemicon1.png diagnosis
and testing procedures. After the high-amperage IOD
has been corrected, switch the multi-meter to pro-
gressively lower amperage scales and, if necessary,
repeat the fuse and circuit breaker remove-and-re-
place process to identify and correct all sources of
excessive IOD. It is now safe to select the lowest mil-
liampere scale of the multi-meter to check the low-
amperage IOD.
CAUTION: Do not open any doors, or turn on any
electrical accessories with the lowest milliampere
scale selected, or the multi-meter may be damaged.
(5) Allow twenty minutes for the IOD to stabilize
and observe the multi-meter reading. The low-amper-
age IOD should not exceed twenty-five milliamperes
(0.025 ampere). If the current draw exceeds twenty-
five milliamperes, isolate each circuit using the fuse
and circuit breaker remove-and-replace process in
Step 4. The multi-meter reading will drop to within
the acceptable limit when the source of the excessive
current draw is disconnected. Repair this circuit as
required; whether a wiring short, incorrect switch
adjustment, or a component failure is at fault.

Fiat 500c stuck in "phone"mode. How do I reset so the audio works?

With the key off, remove the radio fuse from the fuse box, start the car (there should be no power to the radio if you got the right fuse pulled), turn turn the car off, then then put the fuse back in. That should reset it.
In my 2013 Fiat 500 it's the 3rd fuse up from the bottom, on the left side of the bus. 10amp, red fuse. (If you're unsure, use the web to look up a map of the fuses for your make\model\year. Don't justt start unplugging fuses... you may strand yourself.) -Good Luck!

Says fuse on odometer

Check the IOD fuse in the under hood fuse block. If its o.k. then there is an issue with the IOD (ignition off draw) circuit. I should be able to get you some wiring info if you need it.

Below the odometer it indicates no fuse,

The IOD fuse is missing or burnt out. IOD is "ignition off draw" which serves as the dome lights, radio memory, locks and other things powered with the key off.

No dome light or radio

It's the IOD fuse. Trust me, I just fixed the exact problem on my '98 not ten minutes ago. The fuse is located in the fuse box inside the driver's side door. It will be the fuse on the bottom and toward the front of the panel with a black cover over it. Just pull the fuse holder straight out and snap the hinged cover forward to expose the fuse. Just a standard 10 amp automotive fuse and you're back in business!
