Is there a battery in the truck ? you need a diagram, check all heavy wires from battery to engine, and so on, make sure battery is good, then proceed, check all heavy wires, fusible links, etc., do you have a repair manual for this vehicle ? something happened to your main power wire, loose connection, broken, I had a wire one time where it corroded inside the wire, noticed a bulge or bump in the wire, pulled on it, it broke right off. full of green powder, cut it out repaired the connection , every thing worked. good luck

If you check the battery posts with a meter and you have voltage, you would next check the main fuses and for power at the starter, plus the ground connections.

    When you say main fuses, do you mean those in IPDM?

Why my high beam only works on 1997 Chevy 1500 truck


Hi David:
Several possibles:
- Bulbs burnt out (unlikely but possible)
- Switch defective (check with voltmeter or continuity meter.
- Fuse burnt out (possible if low and hi on separate fuses)
- Defective wire.
Sounds like a project with a multi-meter. Trace from where there is power, to where there should be power. Somewhere between there will be a failed component.
Cheers

When I turn on my headlights my brake lights stay on all the time without applying the break pedal. They work fine when the headlights are not on.


Brake pedal you mean. Electrical short somewhere. Somehow power is flowing from the headlight circuit to the brake light circuit. Pull the fuse for the brake lights to see if they stay off, this may help you to isolate the problem. You have to trace the wiring (and test voltages along the way) with the help of the wiring diagram. It's possible corrosion somewhere is also the problem.

Back lights - brake lights, tail lights out on 2000 Chevrolet Venture. Is this a fuse problem?


First, a little Auto Repair 101 preaching: There is no such thing as a "fuse problem". Fuses are NEVER the CAUSE of an electrical problem. Blown fuses are ALWAYS the RESULT of an electrical problem. Fuses do not blow for no reason. Anytime a fuse blows. the reality is that the fuse just gave up its life to stop your vehicle from burning to the ground. Replacing a fuse without correcting the problem in the circuit that caused it to blow will only cause another fuse to have to give up its life and the first fuse has thus died in vain. Each time this process is repeated, wires get heated up and weakened. Then eventually, there comes the poor little fuse that cannot jump on the grenade fast enough to save its comrades and POOF! The the entire vehicle lights up like a bad dream from "The Abominable Torch Visits Fireworks Factory."

Wow! did I just say all that??? Let's move on to your question...

Looking at the wiring diagrams for your vehicle, you would have to have several blown fuses for all of these things to go out all at once. The backup lights, the tail lights and the brake lights are all protected by different fuses. Although this is possible, it is not very likely. If this is the case, you probably have a pinched or crushed rear wiring harness. Another possible cause would be a damaged or loose/disconnected connector somewhere in the rear wiring harness. I'm afraid that without doing some actual electrical testing to see where you have power and where you do not have power on these circuits, I cannot tell you anything more definite than that.

We have 1992 Jeep Cherokee Laredo with electrical problems. The fuse to the gauges keeps blowing, the radio does not work but the radio fuse is OK, and the temp/compass does not work. The temp/compass was...


Get yourself an ohm meter or just a regular test light, start from there, check wires to fuse box and behind gauges and so forth, if the light don't light up, most likely is a break in the wire, can also be an electrical switch or another possible fuse

2004 jeep liberty electrical problems maybe


you have a short somewhere in the cigarette lighter. Most likely the socket itself, but possibly behind the dash somewhere. The radios in the Jeeps ****, and most likely just a bad radio. The door lock either has a bad actuator, or bad wiring in the door jamb. Remove the panel and see if you are getting power to the actuator. If so, you need it, if not check the wiring.

Injectors have no electric


first thing to do is use a test light at the injectors, check to see if you have constant power on 1 side when key is on, you should, if so the computer is not sending a ground to the injectors, or a possible broken wire or bad connection somewhere

No Electrical


Slightly Possible Though Fusable LINKS are in place to Protect from This, You must Check And TEST Any & All Fuse Links @ ALL the MAIN Power Leads. This is what has Happened , Also REPLACE ALL Damaged Wire < Burned from Short to Ground. Feel fre to Reply Back For any Questions.
