The solenoid has no fuse it is like a relay where a small power turns on a large switch. The small wire comes from your key and through the ignition box that is pushed by way of a metal rod from your key cylinder. Ignitions often fail slowly. You'll know if the ignition is getting bad if your dash lights flicker or fail to come on, your radio fails to come on, your horn doesn't work etc

Relay switch or fuses

If the battery is good, then there should be power at the starter solenoid. The solenoid is connected to the starter.The solenoid is energized by the ignition key. When the key is turned, the starter solenoid allows power to feed the starter. Try tapping the starter solenoid while turning the key. Have a friend help and use something non metallic to tap the solenoid. Good luck!

Automatic trasmission lever is stuck in park position

When this happens, usually it is because of a failure in the gearshift selector switch solenoid.
The gearshift selector solenoid is the switch that unlock the lever from park position when driver turns on the ignition and release brake pedal.
When brake pedal is depressed with selector in park position, this energizes the solenoid, unlocking the shifter.
Teh solenoid is energised by same circuit connecting the brake lights.
When for some reason (a short for example) the brake light fuse that protects the circuit blows, this will result in a failure to energize the solenoid, and lever won't be released from park position.
You find the fuse in the fuse box, on Discovery this is fuse number 1. This is a 15 Amps blue fuse. Fuse is located in the fascia fuse panel.
In most cases you fix the problem by replacing the brake light fuse.

Another reason for a failure to energize the solenoid is a faulty brake light switch.
This means the solenoid itself is faulty and need to be replaced.

How to proceed:

Check brake lights. If brake lights are not working, check and replace fuse number one in the fuse box. This will solve the problem in most cases.

If fuse keeps blowing there must be a short in the brake lights wiring.
You will need to access the rear light access panels and unplug the wiring harnesses that connects to the tail light assemblies.
Replace the fuse and try again to start the car, with all tail lights harnesses disconnected. If it starts drive the vehicle to the nearest mechanic, the vehicle will not be safe without tail and brake lights.

When fuse is not blowing check the brake light switch. Remove the panel above the brake pedal. There you find several switches, the second from the bottom will be the brake light switch. Unplug the switch connector, put parking brake on, turn on ignition and short the two green wired pins.
You should hear a click, while shorting the contacts move the shifter out of park position

When brake light are working fine, and lever stays on park position, it is usually the solenoid or its connections that are faulty. Try connecting directly the solenoid to power. The solenoid is connected to red and black wires. Apply 12 Volts across the wires, following polarity. If this worked the solenoid will click, and you will be able to move the gear out of parkposition. When there is no click you need to replace the faulty solenoid that is located in the shifter assembly.

When I turn my key on and turn to the right it blows my fuse that is in the solenoid on the battery wire why thesis that

Sounds like the starter solenoid has a dead short in it. Disconnect the wire to the solenoid at the solenoid and try again. If the fuse doesn't blow, replace the starter. If it still blows, check the starter solenoid wiring for a ground.

What would cause the trunk button on a buick rendevous not to work

Most likely there is a fuse blown--OR the button switch solenoid is burnt out. check fuse panel first. If no fuse blown--find the 2 wires going into the trunk button solenoid. Temporarily remove a bit of insulation from both wires or if there are more than 2 wires--bare them all. Then take a small bare wire & QUICKLY touch from each one to the other to see if there's a spark--being ready to quickly remove it IF there's a spark. If there is a sparking--then the solenoid is likely gone. Recheck fuses to make sure you didn't blow the fuse by sparking the wires. If so, replace fuse & solenoid.

P0449 fault code on 2001 Blazer S10

EVAP Vent Solenoid Control Circuit Malfunction, should just need a Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) Canister Vent Solenoid/Valve.
first test and check the wiring and make sure that its 100% the vent solenoid before you replace it, follow the steps below. you will need a volt meter and ohm meter which is available at any auto or hard ware store.
Tips:Evaporative vent solenoid is located on the rear of the frame cross member behind the fuel tank.

1. Test the voltage at the disconnected Powertrain Control Module (PCM) terminal Key On, Engine Off (KOEO).

2. If 0 volts, test voltage at the canister vent solenoid White wire.

3. If 0 volts, test voltage at vent solenoid Pink wire.

4. If 0 volts at the vent solenoid Pink wire, test at the ENG 1 labeled fuse.

5. If the fuse is B+, test at the under hood fuse block C3 32 cavity Red connector terminal F3. Should be B+.

6. If terminal is B+, trace and repair the wire from the under hood fuse block to the vent solenoid.

My 2006 f150 4x4 lariat has no power to the Ac compressor or the 4x4 solenoid

Fuse 11 is the common fuse to the 4x4 system & the AC.
for the AC it operates the AC clutch solenoid
for the 4x4 it powers the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) Solenoid.

Check Fuse #11 with a meter on both pins on the back while installed ( fuse is hot at all times )

1997 yukon keeps blowing ECM-1 fuse, 20 amp. Ran for awhile after replacing, then blew fuse again, and again?

Hi, here is what runs on the fuse: ECM, injectors, coil, MAP sensor, crank sensor, IAT sensor, EGR solenoid. Of these, only the EGR solenoid has a delayed operation. Recommend you disconnect the EGR solenoid to see if the fuse will hold up. The solenoid is next to the thermostat housing as shown below. If the fuse doesn't blow with the solenoid disconnected, replace the EGR solenoid. Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 1995 gmc sierra 4x4. It blows transmission fuses. When i unplug the wiring harnes from the transmission it stops blowing fuses. Is the short in the trans or in the harness? How do you tell?

The short is inside the trans, but you will need to take the pan off and trace each wire to find out where the short actually is. You have narrowed it down pretty well. One way to really narrow it down before you take the trans out is to unplug the connector and put battery power to the PINK wire cavity. Now take a jumper wire with a 10 amp fuse and touch each wire until the fuse blows. The TAN/BLACK is the Torque Converter Clutch solenoid. BROWN is the 2/3 shift solenoid. Lt. Green is Shift Solenoid "A" and YELLOW/BLACK is Shift Solenoid "B". Those 4 solenoids are powered by the Trans Fuse.
