SOURCE: 2002 Acura MDX door lock fuse blows

It sounds like the circuit has a short in it somewhere. You can check for grounding with the same tester your used to measure the amp draw. Connect the tester and put it on continuity, this should sound an alarm when a closed circuit is detected. Move the harness around to see if it goes off.

SOURCE: 2002 jeep liberty - limited - electrical problem

Just found 2002 Liberty problem with lights and back tailgate door latch and interior lights and radio. Had them working off and on and then blowing Fuse # 34 off and on. Thought maybe BCM control module stuff. Turned out to be Drivers side Visor wiring crimped through and shorted out at the were it is attached to the ceiling.
Totally cut through. If you remove visor screws chech the wiring there. So far everything is up and running.

SOURCE: where is the fuse for the dashboard in a honda

while seating at the driver's seat facing the steering wheel, fuse box is located at lower left part of your console. it is very close to the driver's door. there is normally a latch or cover there without label that you can remove. inside is the label for all the fuse and their respective ratings. look for the fuse of 'GAUGES' or 'DASH*'

Pontiac sunfire dashboard wont light up

1 Answer

No power to sun roof

Did you check you fuse panel? It's located on the driver side. Open your door and pull the plastic trim piece on the inside of the dashboard. Check through your fuse diagram until you find sunroof fuse, check to see if its blown. If it is replace it. If not Volvo has a hard reset technique for Volvo electronics, lock and unlock your volvo 3 times. This problem is usually associated with other small problems though, like interior light not working.

My 1998 Silhouette back door won't unlock with key or fob

follow the steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Enter the passenger side of the vehicle and look under the dashboard, beneath the glove box and near the floor mat. With the aid of a flashlight, locate a large panel, which is held in place by screws. Unscrew the panel manually or use a screwdriver if the screws are too tight.
    • 2 Locate the fuse panel. The panel houses long rows of fuses mounted to the panel. Consult the vehicle's owner manual to determine which of the fuses controls the automatic doors
    • 3 Remove the fuse that controls the automatic doors with a pair of fuse pliers, or carefully with a pair of regular pliers. Examine the fuse by shining the flashlight close against it. If the metal bar inside the fuse is broken, the fuse has been blown.
    • 4 Replace the blown fuse with a fuse of equal amperage. Push the new fuse in place, confirming it is a snug fit.
    • 5 Test the automatic doors before screwing the fuse panel cover back in place. If the doors close automatically after you manually give them a tug, the problem was the blown fuse. Replace the fuse panel cover under the glove box.
    • 6 Test the automatic doors with your remote control. If they do not open or close, the problem is with the remote. Pop the rear cover off of the remote with a screwdriver and replace the battery.

The lights in the switches like power window,door lock,air cond.,heater,etc. have went out. how do you fix?

Seems your FUSE for interior lights poped!
Look for the fuse box under the dash, look at the bottom of the cover, there is a fuse, amperage, and for wut purpose.
Replace the blown fuse with new one, check if the fuse link is still okay, blown fuse link is disconnected if u see it physically!

Driver side door lock and windows are not working

Check fuses #6, #14 and #17 in your fuse block to see if any of the three (3) are blown. The fuse block is at the end of your dashboard just inside of the driver's door. The fuse block diagram is in your Owner's Manual, Section 3.2, and may also be on the inside of the fuse block door.

1995 Bonneville door locks wont work

Underneath the steering wheel, that plastic trim panel covers your fuse block. In that fuse block is the fuse for Power Locks, or it may be labeled ACC. (Accessories)

Yes, many things besides a blown fuse can cause the power door locks to not work.
1.Fuse Good? Yes? Go to 2.
2.Door panel off.
Door lock motor solenoid getting power? Yes? Check door lock solenoid.
(The solenoid is merely a coil of wire that moves a plunger up, or down) (You need to see if power is being fed through the wiring harness, going through the door, from the fuse block)

Check door lock solenoid with jumper wire that has power. Make sure the door lock solenoid has a good ground, and no corrosion between it's body, and where the body of it bolts to.
Water can get past the weatherstripping, make it's way into the door, and cause corrosion. The door metal, is the ground for the door lock solenoid.

Check through the rubber tube,( Going from the car body to the door), and see if there is a ground wire. Sometimes there is an additional ground wire, in the wiring harness, going through that rubber tube.

If so, check it's connection to the body of the car. Don't assume that because it looks clean, and is tight, that there is no corrosion present between it's metal spade connector end, and the body of the car.
Remove it, make sure there is a clean connection, (NO paint), and reinstall.
I suggest this for all of the connections.
