May be a short in the wiring

The switch on the passenger side that turns on the doom light is really lose and I can not get to the wires. My battery drains completely down. I have checked all of the fuses and they are all good even under the hood. I have tried u tube and no video's really come close to what I need. Not even how to take out the glove box. I am getting really up set, now

Get a Ford but intil then remove the kick panel and there will be a large nut to tighten the switch up.

THE BRAKE LIGHTS DO GO THROUGH THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. TO TEST, REMOVE THE PLASTIC COVER AROUND THE THE COLUMN, UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH MUST BE IN THE OFF POSITION. YOU WILL NEED TO EXPOSE THE WIRES UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. DO NOT DISTURB THE WIRES IN THE YELLOW JACKET. THEY ARE AIRBAG WIRES. YELLOW PLUGS YELLOW JACKETED WIRES ARE AIRBAG.THE WIRE IN QUESTION HERE IS YELLOW BUT IT IS NOT IN A YELLOW JACKET, [ SLEEVE ]. NOW, PUSH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. THE YELLOW WIRE IS LEFT REAR TURN & BRAKE WIRE, DARK GREEN IS RIGHT REAR TURN & BRAKE WIRE. BRAKE PEDAL DEPRESSED, IF BOTH OF THOSE WIRES HAVE POWER, ALL OF THAT IS OK. IF THE YELLOW WIRE HAS NO POWER TURN SIGNAL SWITCH IS BAD

What would cause the doom light fuse on my 2006 Kia Rio to keep blowing?


It is because there is a hard short to ground. It is either the wires have a short leading to the dome light, the dome light itself has a short, or the switch that turns the domelight on has a short. I would suspect either a bad switch or bad domelight if you have not messed with any wiring.

What would cause the driver side front door speaker and the passenger side rear deck speakers not to work. When if fade the sound all the way to the front with no sound in rear and with the balance turned...


Check the speakers if they work. Connect the speaker terminals using a short wire to a 1.5 volt battery (AA or any dry cell batter) and listen if there's a thumping sound when the wires are connected to the battery terminals. If there's no sound, your speakers are busted. If there's a sound, check if the wires are okay. Use the same method with the battery with the wires from the back of your stereo. Make a small cut on the wire and attach the short wires you used earlier.

03 Chevy Venture....Clarification Passenger Window stuck down.


It will be in the switch lift up the controls on both the drivers side and passenger side the wires going into the connection wiggle then and the button at the same time if you get any movement then you have a broken wire if not use a test light hook one wire to some metal and the other to the wires if their is any power the light will come on, if no light then you probably have a broken wire. The passenger side power comes from the drivers side control. When you open the doors you will see a large black set of wiring harness in the door going into the side under the dash that is the wiring harness for all the power windows and door locks, open it and test those wires for power.

1996 ford probe passenger electric window no longer works.


you blew the fuse for your radio.you cannot put a hot wire to a ground that is why the fuse blew.you could have broken a wire connector for the door,windows etc.the headlight switch wire harness is probably melted this happens a lot on Ford products,the head light draw so much heat they melt the wire harness plug that goes on the back of the headlight switch.

Driver side low beam headlight caution came on


Check the wiring going into the back of the light. Make sure no bare wires. It should go into the harness so it wont be a very long wire. If none visable make sure there is no rust on the contacts in the light socket its self.. Hope that helps..

Battery


Sounds like your dome light circuit has a grounded out wire, this will cause the fuse problem, and your switches are located in the ground wires. So if your hot wire is shorted out anywhere it will blow fuses and drain the battery.
