SOURCE: fuse

Actually, I found a connector under the driver side sliding door that goes to the back lighting. Mine was full of water. After removing the water and insuring the connection was clean, the lights have been working fine.

What keep blowing my 20 fuse under the hood


Hard to say without knowing what car you are working on or what fuse 20 controls. Basically, determine what this fuse feeds and check for shorts, bad connections, bad grounds or high amp draw from bad component.

I have a 2002 Toyota corolla T sport 1.8 and have just had the engine rebuilt but it keeps blowing the 15 amp audio fuse under the bonnet, have tried putting a big amp fuse in and still blows. Car starts...


Hi,
Who installed the engine? If you did, check all the Grounds/Earths under the hood/bonnet. If the mechanic/shop did, take it back and have them fix it.

My 1993 Dodge Caravan won't start. There's a clicking sound under the hood when I turn the key. I was told to reset the map sensor. Although, I don't know how. I put in a new starter yeste


Do not go back to any " mechanic" who told you to re-set the map sensor. Those are some baaad mechanics, giving you a schuck job. That is outrageous . If the clicking is coming from the relay and fuse center by the battery, you probably need a new $10 starter relay. If the clicking is coming from the starter solenoid on the new starter you put on, then it's not a bad part, but likely a loose connection at the battery, or at the starter where the big cable wire attaches. Are your battery cable connections corrosion-free and clean and tight? Did you happen to remove a ground wire and forgot to re-attach it? Check your battery ground, the negative cable where it attaches to the frame of the car, or to the engine. That should be clean and tight also. If the starter solenoid is clicking, it means that the starter is getting a signal from your ignition switch to turn the starter motor on, but the starter motor is not getting full battery power from the battery to start turning and thus cranking the engine. The starter motor gets its full battery power from the positive positive cable. One end is on the battery, and the other end is on the starter. If your battery is still charged up enough to start the car, all connections are tight, you have a new starter, and the solenoid just clicks, it may be a bad battery cable.
I will stop here, and wait for your response . Hope you find it, just keep looking. There is no such thing as re-set the map sensor, period.

I just washed my car i was at the light and the car shut off i have lights radio works and everything it keeps burning one of the 20 amps fuses under the hood with the engine symbol and i have been getting...


Hi Eason, The fuse which keeps blowing is the ECU fuse, which means the computer isn't working. That being so, the vehicle will will not start. The starter motor problem is separate and will need the starter relay or the solenoid replaced. The fact that the fuse for the management system keep blowing means there is a short or overload of that system which must be detected urgently! (WITH ALL DUE HASTE...IF NOT SOONER) in other words it may be dangerous if you have a short, as it can cause a fire! Get it sorted asap. Regards John

Clicking in fuse box under hood


That test with the Hydrometer of battery specific gravity will indicate the state of charge, the problem is this, the battery posts that connect to the cells inside the newer sealed batteries burn through, so although the battery is charged there is no way to deliver the power to the car, that is why a load test is the only true test of battery performance. Most auto parts stores do this test for free.

The car won't start; lights, ac, radio etc come on but car won't turn over or even click; checked battery cables; put different battery in; still won't start


Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle
