    thanks, i did find it at the dodge website but none of the fuses were blown, I wonder what else it could be?

  • thrashermatt May 08, 2009

    Yes, i checked the box in the front and the rear. i checked the console fuse in both and the radio fuse in the front. they all seemed fine. it may be the radio fuse itself.

    u used a `12 volt test light to check these fuses? or an ohm meter? many times the fuse doesn't look blown and it is.

Where is 2005 rendezvous dashboard lights and interior lights fuse?

Check the fuse box on the right (passenger) side of the center console. You should be able to identify which fuse it is by checking in the owner's manual.

Dash board lights not working

Locate the knob or dial that controls the brightness of the dashboard lights. If the control is not immediately evident, check your owner's manual.

  • 2 Make sure the brightness control is turned on. If it is and the lights aren't working, the problem may be a bad fuse.
  • 3 Check the fuse that controls the dashboard lights (see How to Fix a Faulty Car Fuse). Replace the fuse if necessary.
    Find the fuse box (see A). It is usually located under the dashboard to the left of the steering wheel, at about knee level. Many cars have additional fuse boxes in the engine compartment. Check your owner's manual or call the dealer for the exact location(s)

  • Open the fuse box cover and locate the blown fuse. There are two ways to find the bad fuse: Look for a fuse with a melted center strip (see B, which shows two types of broken fuses). Or, if you know which device isn't working--for example, the radio--look for the fuse that handles that device. The fuse panel may have labels for each device, or the information may be in your owner's manual.
  • 3 Remove the bad fuse with a fuse puller (a small pair of plastic tweezers that should come with the fuse box). Or use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
  • 4 Check the number on the bottom or side of the bad fuse. This indicates the amperage.
  • 5 Buy a new fuse with the same amperage and push it into the slot in the fuse box with your fingers.

    My cigatter ligher and my radio are not working on my 03 honda accord. I got a flat tire so used porable air pumb that I had so I think maybe there is a fuse thats why is its not working

    Quite correct. The fuse must have blown for sure as the compressor must have taken more current than specified. So check the CIG ligter/radio FUSE on the fuse box located under the dash board.
    Use a nose plier to pull out the fuse and replace with the spare fuse within the box.

    Where is the fuse box on my car other then under the hood

    an owners manual would give you this info. there is generally a small box with a few large amp fuses under the hood and a larger fuse panel with many small fuses up under the dashboard somewhere. if it has a console, check for a snap open or velcro fuse panel cover on the side of the console where it meets the dashboard.

    My cigarette lighter and radio kicked out when I was using a small compressor to fill my tires. Is there a fuse box in the van? I found one in the engine area but it does not show me a cigarette lighter or...

    There should be a fuse panel inside the vehicle which controls this. Check your owners manual for exact location.
    Usually the cig lighter and other accessories are on one circuit.
    Good Luck

    Low fuel light indicator

    try checking for other fuses, replace them with the same ampacity. With the radio, radio and light are on the same fuse i believe the lights for the radio are bad. If fuses are okay maybe the light bulb for the low fuel indicator has blown the light bulb can be replaced.

    Where is use for radio on a 2000 alero

    Turn off the car before pulling out a fuse. Find the two fuse boxes in the passenger compartment of your Oldsmobile Alero. One is on the driver's side and the other is on the passenger's side of the instrument panel.
    Consult your owner's manual to find the location of the fuse you need to change. You can also find this information on the inside of the fuse box cover.

    Locate the blown fuse. If it's a radio fuse in a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero, you'd find it in the slot marked "Radio Batt" in the fuse box on the passenger's side. Use the fuse puller inside of the fuse box to remove the fuse.

    Check the inside wire of the fuse. A blown fuse has a burned or broken wire.

    Put in a new fuse with the same rating. Verify the fuse rating against what's listed on the fuse box or owner's manual for the particular model and year in question. Click it into place and close the fuse cover. Restart you car and verify you've corrected the problem.

    If the radio calls for a code: If you bought the car new then there should be writen in the manual the code for the theft lock system on the radio. Pre-owned then it might ,might not be in there. or if you don't have one at all. 
    Go to your nearest GM dealer and have them fix it by finding the code using the Vin #. Make sure to have them write it down for you in case this happens again. 

    Good luck and hope this helps

    2005 Malibu MAXX car stereo dead, rear radio too.

    Please check your owners manual for the location of the 10 amp fuse for the radio. On some models you have to reset the security feature on the radio/CD player for it to work.

    The info below has been stated to work on a no go radio. I have not confirmed this procedure.

    Remove the lower fuse box cover, with the power off, removed the 10 Amp fuse for the "Radio." the fuse may be good. Fuses are diagrammed in the owner's manual. With the fuse removed, start the car, turn the car off, replace the fuse and turn the key to "ACC" to see if the radio was "Reset."

    Would the alarm cause the radio to malfunction? If your Anti Theft lock was activated check your owners manual under radio and check for a 4 number password. Sometimes it is taped to the upper part of the glove box. If you do not have the CODE you will need to take the vehicle to a dealership or a repair center. They use your vehicles vin number get the code.

    Radio fuse

    look in the owners manual or on the removable cover to the fuse box under the dash of your car, it should have a guide telling you which one is for the radio. This fuse may also be under the hood in a fuse box there, depending on your model.

    If no guide is found there then look in your owners manual and it will guide you were to go.
