Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My interior light fuse (20A) keeps blowing on Acura RL 2000 This also afffects my stereo - I had a mechanic check and they could not find an electricas short so they said it was likely my cig lighter that I use for charging phone. I have a cassette deck and use a tape to then hook to my phone for streaming music. I have replaced the cassette tape hoping that was the issue but it still blows a fuse when I am playing it. Also my VSA Triangle light up on dash and the mechanic said it was just a steering sensor that needed to be replaced.... so with all that information I am looking for some direction.... what next?

Does the fuse blow when you don't have anything plugged into the cigarette lighter? Do you have more than one cigarette/utility port? They are usually on different fuses.

If it turns out that is the problem you can install a separate outlet just for the tape on a higher rated fuse

SOURCE: 2000 chevy impala keeps blowing fuse for cig lighter and radio

You have a short or a defective cig lighter plug. Check with an ohms meter for continuity.

SOURCE: 20A ACC/cig fuse, 40A fan fuse (AC) keeps blowing on 05 Sebring.

Disconnect the cigar lighter and see if the short goes away, I will bet it does.

Radio/Speakers Not Working


In the junction block, check 20A FUSE 18, 10A FUSE 4, and 10A FUSE 19.
The hood release probably was damaged as the mechanic fumbled with opening or closing

Radio, interior lights, stop working 99 acura rl, replace the fuses, when I turn the ignition on the interrior lights go out


For the radio try this and it could fix it all: If you have jumped or replaced the battery at anytime this will happen. You have to get the serial number off the radio by removing it or partially taking it out to see the numbers on it try not to remove any cords. With the stereo out (to make sure you get the right number off of it) call an Acura dealership with the number and they will give you the another number to enter into the stereo and directions on how to punch the numbers in. Make sure while you have the stereo out you write the serial number down and keep it in a safe place also the number that the Acura dealership gives you because if you sell the car or if it happens again its easily accessible. Good Luck!
