SOURCE: 20 amp ignition fuse keeps blowing

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

SOURCE: 1996 Dodge Stratus keeps blowing fuse to starter!

Need to look at symntec and see if there is a relay on the starter. Which there most likely is. and it is bad. Look at the fuse and see if there is another wire going from the fuse to a relay,if so replace that relay.

SOURCE: RE: 1993 Dodge Dakota - truck won't start,

From your description, the solenoid is defective. The key (start) circuit provides power to the small terminal on the solenoid. With the key off, try shorting the small terminal of the solenoid to the large terminal that has the heavy battery cable attached. If no action, short the small terminal to the solenoid mounting bolt. One of these two actions should operate the solenoid. If nothing, the solenoid coil is open--replace the solenoid. Make sure the frame-to-engine ground-strap is intact and connected tightly on both ends.

The horn is not working in my son's car


There is a wire somewhere between the fuse box and the horn that is touching metal and grounding out the circut.Follow the wires from the horn to the fuse box carefully you should find your problem.

Horn keeps going off on it's own.


My horn is all set now. I took the steering wheel pad off and put electrical tape around the wires and put it back together. It has been fine sense. Thank God.

Bought a 1992 acura vigor and found horn fuse missing. when I replaced the fuse alarm goes off and constantly sounds. how do I stop it? I've read that there's a relay somewhere under the hood


horn relay located on the right side kick panel,you will see a row of relays,if horn relay is okay, more likely your horn control pad has a short inside causing horn button contacts to stick causing horn to keep blowing.

2008 odyssey brake fuse location


Hi there:
The simplest way to check the brake light fuse on a Honda is to operate the horn. The horn is always on the same fuse as the brakelights.



The fuse position #7, "Stop" is the one. Ive been doing this so long I dont even look at the fuse unless the horn won't blow. It's the fastest surest test. So if the horn works, I'm 99 % sure its the bulbs. The brake light switch has to be good if the shifter works with the brake pedal. Unless the car has been taken apart or damaged in the rear recently I cant see another cause for the light to be out.


The brake lights even use different grounds, so thats unlikely too.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.


Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Cruise control and horn dont blow


Take it to a garage. The older fords have a lot of electrical problems. Previous owner tried to fix my son's ford and totally messed up the electrical problems so much that all fuses had to be taken out. It ran a long time but they finally all overheated. Now it's a day time car only. If he puts a fuse in, it blows something else and the car eventually dies. He was driving down the road (behind a state trooper) with the inside and outside lights flasing off and on. Someone trying to fix it on their own messed it up. The horn on my ford would suddenly start blowing in traffic or sitting in the parking lot. We took the fuse out until it could be fixed by a mechanic.

Fuse panel diagram for a 1995 jeep cherokee 4.0 engine. I have spent a lot of time on phone calls and no one can help me. please help... I am trying to locate the horn fuse so my 16 year old son feels...


Don't have a diagraqm for that but I'm sending you a complete diagram for a 93 which is fairly similar:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/18999822/Jeep-Wiring-2 One thing... even without a diagram it's easy to find out if a fuse is blown by using a test light. Probe both ends of every fuse. if they are all good then regardless of what they serve, you know your problem isn't a fuse. Can't remember if 95's had an airbag, but if it does and the airbag light is also on, chances are that the horn problem is being caused by the "clockspring" inside the column. You also can test a horn by beginning at the horn. Use a jumper wore attached to the positive side of the battery and touch it to the horn terminal. If it blows then the problem is up-stream of the horn, possibly the relay or the contact assembly in the column.(clockspring is part of that, or it has a normal button and contact plate). If you don't find the problem or it's too difficult to repair, you do have the option of installing a push button on the dash wired to the battery and horn.
As for your son feeling secure....remind him that a good driver rarely uses the horn as in doing that precious time is wasted that should be used for steering, braking and decision making when in a dangerous situation. You do need a working horn to pass inspection though!

My 02' mdx won't come out of park, keep blowing a 20 amp fuse. This fuse controls the Cruise, break lights, memory seat, horn and linkage. I have to manually delink. I have unhooked the comand...


Here is an idea, when do you blow the fuse key on, key on engine running, key on engine running hitting the break pedal? Try and get the key on without blowing fuse if possible, then one at a time try those circuit loads ie: horn, brake pedal and so on, if you isolate which load is pulling to many amps(blowing fuse) unplug that load itself, then restart testing, see if fuse stays ok. You can also substitue the fuse with a circuit breaker and unplug each load until click(of breaker) stops.

could be you might check it out. many items take the same relay so you might try exchanging it with another one with the same numbers. If that isn't it you may have a short in the horn itself.
