Question about 1989 Chrysler New Yorker
The digital dash in my newyorker just whent out and blew some fuses only problem is when i try to put a fuse in the dome light spot it blows instantly can anyone help me out with this
You have a direct short. Take the bulb out of dome light, inspect the socket. Try putting fuse back in while bulb is out. If the fuse blows again, Id say it's in the wiring from the fuse box to the the switch. If the dome light fuse also covers other electrical things, such as lighter, check the socket at all points. You mentioned that other fuses were replaced as well? Which ones, and why did they blow? Sometimes it could be moisture entering your fuse box, or condensation near the computer, but is sounds more like a short. Could be as minor a a bad ground wire, or a chafed wire. While you are putting the fuse back in, it will help to keep your eyes looking around the fuse box for sparks as soon as the fuse goes in. You should also listen for that electrical snap. If this doesn't help, I'd suggest taking head panel down and follow and inspect the wires from dome down to the switch. Then from switch [ which could also be the cause ] to fuse box. look for hot spots, arcs, and bare spots. I hope this helps you out. keep me informed

there might be corrosion on the ends of the fuse holder check that or try tuner cleaner before inserting the fuse.could also be a short in the fuse holder.
