Question about 2002 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

I was looking for a 12v keyed power source under the hood when I heard a fuse pop. I wasn't touching a live wire at the time it popped but I lost my cruise control. I have checked the cruise control fuse, #14, and it is fine without any power to it's posts. this fuse box has the power coming into it from the battery so I believe their is another blown fuse that feeds this one. there are many block type "?resistors?" on among the fuses but I don't know how to check those. Do you know what port in the fuse panel controls the power to the cruise control fuse? Thank You Scott

The "resistors" are actually maxi-fuses. Your Batt1 or Batt2 fuse is blown more than likely. There should be other components that are not working.
Look down into the Maxi-fuse, you should be able to see the fused bridge of the fuse. If it is dark, it has blown. If you compare it to the others, you will see the difference. You can also remove the cap on top of the fuse to see the fuse bridge.
Good luck,
Regards,

Replaced bulbs in my Viking DFS423B and still not coming on.


That was a DEAD Electrical short. If your talking about all the bulbs, it's probably at a fuse box. Start by checking all the fuses (under the hood too) Ck all the fuses anyway and that's the circuit where the trouble started if you find a bad fuse. More than one or two fuses your best bet is pro help unless you have wiring diagrams, test light & multimeter. Also look for burn marks on the wiring where you heard the POP.

Locked Keyes in trunk of 91 Lexus


I don't know about back seat access, but you may have a feasible idea about the 12volts -maybe. Does your vehicle have a button on the dash to pop the trunk?? If so, that button works with the ignition switch in the 'on' position. Obviously you can't use the button since you can't turn the ignition to on. However, if you can get to the contacts of that button, you may be able to energize the trunk opener. Hopefully there are only two wires on that button switch, which will simplify matters. If you take a wire from the Positive battery terminal to the button switch, you may be able to energize the opener. If it's a two terminal switch, one side or terminal is power (12v) in, and the other terminal is 12v out. If you put 12v to one terminal and nothing happens, push the button. Can you pop the hood to get to the battery???? If not any 12v battery can work, lawn mower battery, etc. : Negative terminal of battery to car frame, positive to switch. This would be a low current draw, so the wire can be anything like speaker wire. Since the wire is live, just be careful not to have it touch any other bare wire connections or part of the frame, etc.If this works, it will probably set off the alarm, since the ignition switch is off. I really don't know if this will work, but if I was in this dilemma, I would try it. After all said and done, someone might be able to tell you how to access the trunk by way of the back seat. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!

No power to my ignition switch on my 1990 Pace Arrow


idk if the first post posted so im going to try again. trace your wires throu the firewall and see where they go. then pull that relay and test for live wires. if the ciruit is hot and the relay isnt pushing anything. you found your problem. also check headlight relay. may run ignition switch.

No Power to Ignition Switch on 1990 Pace Arrow/Ford 460-v8


defintely sounds like fuse or relay. also could be relay for your headlights thats runs to the ignition switch as well. trace your wires from ignition switch out through the firewall and see where they go. may need to have second person help. Wherever the wires go is prob your problem. Most likely a relay. also check for any hot wires loose touching thats shortening the circuits.

How to replace the fuse for 12v outlet and Cig outlet in a 2006 ford taurus


I was searching for this fuse. All the above fuses mentioned were not popped on my vehicle and the 12v power was the only thing not working. Look under the hood by the latch. There is another fuse box by the hood latch. Open that and it will be #16 & #18 one is your 12v power, the other is cig lighter. Both of mine were popped. Replaced those and my problem was fixed.

I was driving down the road when all of the sudden i smell burning plastic.I pulled over turned my radio down stepped out popped the hood .I didn;t see any problems i cranked my car and my radio was dead...


arent you still under warranty?! check the positive terminal of the battery(common gm issue). check the wiring at the starter motor and look for burned wires. if there is consider the warranty. BY THE WAY, IF YOU HAVE HEAVY SMOKE AGAIN, DO NOT "POP" THE HOOD! IT CAN CAUSE AN AIR FEED AND POSSIBLY IGNITE A FIRE IN YOUR FACE. ive put out car fires in iraq. its not fun getting or treating people for burns. let me know if you need further assistance. cheers

Left keys in ignition overnight, turned to have interior lights on. battery is dead, cant get key out or pop trunk to get to the battery to charge it.


If you know anyone that has a portable booster, you should be able to plug the cord from the 12v outlet on the booster into the 12v (cigarette lighter or accessory charger) in the car, and get enough power to pop the trunk.

Lost power steering and brakes


I'd say you broke a serpintine belt if you lost them both at the same time. Check your belts and see if you're missing one... You should have breaks and steering, just manual... hard to steer and brake...
