From what you tell me this is a mangement problem you might want to check the engine management fuses under the bonnet. does the starter motor acctually turn over? if so then this is definittley the problem. if not you might have damaged the coil depending on what car and what part of it you touched the wire aginst

2001 Hyundai XG300 radio and digital clock/mpg reader above radio are not working have checked all fuses taken radio out checked connections cannot find anything also since this has happened the inside...


This sounds like a bad wiring harness ground behind the dash, on the left side of the vehicle. Find the ground wire, and ensure it is not loose, or contaminated. Use a wire brush to expose the metal and give a metal-to-metal contact surface, then re-secure it.

1999 Mazda millenia Electrical issues


the first thing to do is to remove the wires your sister conected, tape them seperately, these wires are power and ground wires and power the light in the visor mirror , they can not touch, so make sure they are apart and not touching any metal surface, tape them, one at a time.

there must be a blown fuse, did you check all the fuse boxes? there is one inside and one under the hood. start with this .

Toyota 1995 Avalon. 15 Amp fuse for the Radio and AC blows when I hit a small pot hole.


Your problem is likely a bare wire under the ash that is hitting metal when it moves. You'll have to open up the dash and trace out you wire harness, Start at the radio connection and work back looking for a bare spot in the insulation or maybe even jjust a crack in it. Tape it up and try to reposition it so it doesn't hit metal or chafe again. Hope this helps.

After replacing battery in 2002 Toyota Sequoia, radio losses memory everytime vehicle is started. What is wrong?


The radio uses a constant power to retain memory(stations,settings,ect.) and switched power to run on. It sounds like there is a problem with the constant power connection. You can first check the fuse box for any blown fuses and replace any that are found. Also look around the battery for any wires with an inline fuse that could be broken. Try looking under the dash near the radio for any inline fuse holders that could have a blown fuse. You might need to pull the radio and start tracing the constant 12v power wire. First verify that it does have power and if it does then the radio may have been damaged from a voltage spike when the new battery was installed. If the wire does not have power then you will need to start tracing the wire back to the source of the short. It sounds to me like a blown fuse somewhere....

My car started dying and now hasnt enough charge to start


sound like bad battery cables.replace them.the positive battery cable is old and have a lot of resistance not allowing power to the alternator to charge battery.if battery cable good check alternator connector wires.make sure they are not damage also check alternator fuse and fuse link.turn off radio before removing battery wires so you wont lose radio code.

Car blows starter fuse after hitting bump in road causing car to die. Changed 30amp fuse and tried to start and blows fuse agian


check out the wiring. The bump may have made some connections loos or may have shaken up the wires and wires that are exposed may have hit each other or the metal part of the car which caused a short and in turn caused a fuse to blow.

Staurn won't start


Check your ignition fuses under the hood of the car to see if any are blowed. They are the larger fuses; however, the truth of the matter is that your computer might of taken a spike and knocked it out...when working on electrical components it is a good idea to disconnect the battery...

Go to start and needles on dash bounce as if they have a pulse


Hi...
I read your problem.
Is there a few step to diagnostic or try to fix your car.

Follow this simple steps.
Inspect the RALAY " Starter relay # 47. or interchange with other one just for testing.
1- Check the Fuse " IGN E Fuse number 22 " 10amp. on under hood fuse BOX fron Neutro swicth
And power to the power to the Neutro safetly switch.
2-- Check the Fuse " CRANK fuse # 17 10amp. Under hood fuse box. 12v. from Ignition switch
3- check the fuse " IGN A fuse # 34 40 amp. under hodd fuse box. Constant 12v. to relay.
With ignition switch in ON position.
Crank Fuse only when you try to start. If no power 12v. come when trying to start.
REmove the steering column covers. to get axces to the IGNITION SWITCH.
Trying to start check if 12 v on the YELLOW wire exist. if not. Check if there a 12v on the RED wire
If not Inspect FUSE # 34.
But if there a power on the red wire But not ON yellow wire Trying to start.
Just REPLACE THE IGNITION SWITCH. Electrical part.

Check the NEUTRO SAFETLY SWITCH. connector under the car. Repair as need.
CHeck the BACK-UP lights, some times come damaged making a short on the Neutro safetly switch. ...

OK.. I hope this help on your problem.
If you need more information letme know.

I'm a Mechanic and have all the information for repair vehicles.

Thank you for use fixya....
