Question about 2001 Nissan Sentra

1 Answer

Fuse keeps blowing.

I started getting electrical problems on my nissan. First the horn went out. Got around to making it work. Then battery kept dying. Was told i needed new alt. it wasn't charging. Replaced it and got a new batt. Now everything is fine except that the fuse for the inside (compartment) light keeps blowing. This seems to control the rear defroster too, so i got no defroster. What could it be? Is there anything i could check or do so i don't have to waste a couple hundred bucks at dealer?

First off, never bring it back to the dealer, if you dont want to waste money...
Second, what has been added to this car? new stereo, car alarm???
Were windows left open in the rain?
-If new parts were added, check the cars wiring. Most likely is short.

-if your horn and all other electrical accessories is having a problem, and wiring is good, Well what controls drawing power, and powering up these accessories? - The cars computer...

Theres no short answer for that, get a flashlight, the cars wiring diagrams, and a voltmeter - check the wires

Horn wont blow


Check for blown fuse first. If fuse ok, you will have to check for a power and ground supply directly at the horn itself. Possible causes are... defective horn...blown fuse.... defective horn relay....defective horn pad.... defective clock spring..... broken wiring. There is a lot of electrical diagnostics that need to be performed to make this simple horn operate

Will a bad ac compressor cause my instrument cluster fuse to keep blowing out? I have replaced my fuse twice but for some reason it keeps blowing out and my gages wont work and this problem didn't sta


Sounds like a fuse link by the battery. It is common ground on a Ford or most of them, so they are finicky about the ground. If one is going out, it makes your car go crazy in the electrics. BEWARE though, it can kill you if you have an open circuit. Take this problem to a garage person with diagnostic abilities. It is a lot safer.

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima and my horn don't work


you may have a problem with the clock spring or spiral cable as nissan calles it. it is a part of the air bag system and also horn signal runs into and out of it.if that part is bad, your air bag light will flash and your horn will not work. has anyone been doing any repairs inside of the steering wheel?? it may just be unpluged. if you are going to tackle this your self to look inside of the steering wheel, make sure you disconnect the battery for at least 3 minutes, befor you start playing with the air bag. you dont want to blow it up.

This means theres a dead short somewhere, so the systems it runs have a short you will need to remove power from each one until the short stops. take a look around for wires touching ground, the raido woundnt be the problem it has its on fuse and so does the horn, remove the starter wire, the small wire to starter and leave the big battery cable going to starter and then try to start it, i know it wont start but this will tell you if its the starter thats shorting out, if that doiesnt do it then continue remove connections until you locate it, also repair the wire and then turn the key on and see if it blows the fuselink if it doesnt then you know its the starter, but then crank and see if it blows to make sure, if it only blows when you crank it then its the starter, if it blows as soon as the key is turn on then its something else. hope this is helpful, good luck.

If you have access to a volt meter turn it to dc volts and unplug the horn have some one activate horn while you check the volts. should have around 12volts. If you do its the horn itself.

Starter fuse keeps blowing


Sounds like a short in the system. you will need to inspect the wiring and posably, bench test the starter. Check the cables to the battery. Make sure the wires and the battery are in good shape.

Horn fuse keeps blowing out


Check the wiring around the horn and make sure nothing is touching metal...look under the hood at the horn and make sure everything is pluged in and there is no water on any plugs or wiring...Make sure the fuse is the correct number (ex: 10, 20, 25) If it is still blowing out the fuse then you after you do some checking then it is a short in some wires

I owned one and i regret having to have sold it. I do not know of any ongoing problems with this vehicle. check around your clutch pedal for wires that may be rubbing against it and are grounding out or cut? you can find schematic in manual at parts store and i recommend buying one for your own good. They are a wealth of information about your vehicle.

Peugot 306 indicator noise and wfront electric windows


hey kempster_rob the problem is in the wiring between the doors and the body, the wiring is short and is constructed wrong, so when you after 3000 openings and closings the wires brakes and either loose connection or makes shortcuts between the different cables causing fuse blows and disrupted working electrical system. Solution is to open the isolation around the cables and either repair them or displace them, its possible to buy a repair kit at the peugeot dealer
