No, the size of the fuse only protects the stereo against a dead short.If your battery goes dead and the connections are all good ,in all probability the problem is in your alternator. A mechanic with a tester can check that out for very little cost.

SOURCE: car blows starter fuse after hitting bump in road

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.

It may be possible that your alternator is bad and discharged your brand new battery. Take both the battery and the alternator to your local parts store and have both checked.

Where is the stereo fuse for 2003 NIssan Xterra located. WE just installed a new battery and now the stereo won't go on. THanks.

In the fuse and fusible link box, check 15A FUSE 41. If your Xterra has a separate power amplifier, also check 20A FUSE 33. In addition, check 10A FUSE 18 in the fuse block.

2001 olds aurora, no power to passenger side window modules..plugged them into driverside doors they work.. also tried pass. side window motors on d.s and they work fine, any idea on what wire is power....

If the driver window works, the 30A PWR WDO CB and the 10A DRVMDL fuse in the rear fuse block must be OK. The passenger window gets power from the 10A PASS MDL fuse and that should be checked. The rear windows get power from the 10A RRDR MDL fuse and that, too, should be checked. The same circuit breaker and fuses protect the door locks so replacement of the burned out fuses should clear up your problem

disconnecting the battery lead with the car running is a good way to cause serious electronic problems
take it in to have the charge circuit checked including the voltage regulator, fuse, diodes ' rectifier pack

Radio not working

It is the fuse inside that yellow fuse holder on the lower left side that is bad. Not the one that says audio that is the problem you can not see the fuse but it is in that yellow holder.

sounds like a bad ground somewhere. that can burn out power wires due to a high amp draw and cause the battery not to charge. try hooking up the negitive cable directly to the engine to jumpstart it. if that works and the car dies as soon as you disconnect the cables a bad ground is very likely. and I have noticed the new gms are very weak in the charging/battery department. They are using very cheep batterys ,die very easy. also check fuses.
