Radio, dome lights, and keyless entry not working (Fuses Ok)

My wife put jumper cables on wrong terminals. Right after that is when the problems started obviously. Someone suggested a fuse link? I don`t understand, but makes sense. How hard to fix, where located, and if I need to take it to shop about how much? Thanks!

The radio, windows and headlights aren't working.


If my memory serves me, this vehicle has a Body Control Module fitted which takes care of these and many more functions. By connecting the jumper cables incorrectly, this module may have been damaged and will need to be checked and or repaired by qualified persons. The radio may also have been damaged by incorrect jumper cable connection . To be honest, incorrect cable connections can destroy most electronic devices in the blink of an eye and can be very expensive to replace damaged parts. My advice would be to take the vehicle to a qualified auto electrician and have all the vehicles systems checked including ABS brake systems, Airbag systems etc.

Remote door opener on 2002 elantra gl does not work. The fuse is blown and I cannot locate it.


the keyless entry does not have a fuse itself however the vehicle has a iod, or storage fuse, that will disable the keyless system but other accessories wont function, the dome light , clock, or radio, if those items work then the fuse is good. check the remote itself, the dealer can check the remote n/c, if the remote is ok than the relay can be bad or the alarm module, best advice, take it to the dealer, they will know whats wrong with it and it wont cost too much to diag .

Check fuse 8 (10 amp fuse) in the under dash fuse panel. Make sure you have voltage to it on both sides of the fuse.This fuse feeds all of the items you listed.

Keyless entry and dome light


GM used a ground buss under the carpet near the drivers door sill. It gets wet and corrodes causing electrical problems. You can clean it up with steel wool after disconnecting the negative battery terminal. I can't remember if it's near fuse pannel or under the drivers seat on Chevy trucks.

Elect.


Did you test the fusible link?
It's a smaller gauge wire that comes off of the + terminal of the battery post.

'97 Honda Civic dome lights and keyless entry problem


The signal from all the door switches is fed to the factory radio. From the radio, the signal goes to the dome light. When the radio is removed, the dome light does not work since the circuit is "cut".
Fortunately, there is a very simple workaround this problem. If the car does NOT have a factory alarm/ keyless entry, all you have to do is tie two wires together.
There are two green plugs. Get to the one that is plugged into the radio (if you have both green plugs going into the radio, then you DO have a keyless entry system).
Tie together the Green/Black (at the corner of the plug) and the Green/Red (3rd pin, opposite corner, same row).
Before tying the wires together, test both wires. With the radio plugged in, both wires should get a ground when a door is open and nothing when the doors are all closed. Once you have determined that they are in fact, the correct wires, unplug the green plug from the radio. If the dome light still works, you do not have to worry about it. If it doesn't, temporarily jump with a wire both pins at the plug. If the dome light functions correctly, then you can permanently jump the wires together. The preferred way to do this is to strip some insulation on the wires, solder a jumper wire and insulate with electrical tape.
