SOURCE: Automobile electrical problem

I hate to say it but GM "W" bodies of that time period ( Regal, Cutlass Supreme, Lumina, and Grand Prix) are notorious for turn signal problems. I'm a machanic and also have owned 3 W body vehicles. The pivot bushing in the switch wears prematurely and in turn causes the copper contacts to barely touch each other. If the contacts are dirty, there is resistance. Where there is resistance, there is heat, hence the smoke. It's just a poor design. What I do instead of replacing the switch requires some time and some surgical skill but it always works for me. At the pivot end of the switch, I remove the screw and remove the metal tube insert. I wrap the metal with electrical tape to take up the slack from the wear then grease the heck out of it. At the contact end I attach a piece of sheet metal to the bottom of the movable part of the switch so it sits underneath the non-moveable part making it so the moveable part can't lift up and lose contact. That's just a vague description but if you want a detailed one let me know and I'll write one. I did it to my '89 Regal 4 yrs. ago and to my wife's Grand Prix 1 yr. ago and they both still work great. Just a design flaw in the switch. Sometimes you have to pick up wher the car companies left off! beest921

SOURCE: ignition switch fuse terminal is blowing red 40 amp fuse when i try to replace it

A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!

SOURCE: jeep keeps blowing auto shutdown fuse

Yes I had the same problem. The wires that plug into the sensor at the catatytic converter were rubbing against the drive shaft untill they finally wore through causing the short against drive shaft. repaired wires and it fixed everything

Hi there, i have a 1991 Izuzu mu, 2.8 turbo. Everytime i turn the key on the glowlight or glowplug fuse keeps blowing. Its on the inside of the car not the bigger one under the bonnet?


There will be a relay that switches the power to the glowplugs on and off, probably mounted in the fuse/relay box near the big fuse under the bonnet. Check this relay and associated wiring for a short circuit to ground

TURN KEY AND NOTHING, EVERY THING WORKS RADIO,HEATER AND LIGHTS, BUT NOTHING UNDER THE HOOD NOT A SOUND. THE CAR IS A 1999 CAVALIER


Open the hood and look for the engine compartment fuse block next to the driver's side firewall. Open the cover in order remove and inspect the fuse closest to the radiator labeled ING (Ignition) to see if the fuse connection is visibly broken or blown. If it is OK open the fuse panel located at the left end of the instrument panel inside the vehicle. To open, push the tab on the access door to the left and pull the door forward. Remove and inspect the two top right fused labeled IGN and PCM/IGN to see if the fuse connection is visibly broken or blown. Replace any defective fuses and try to start the vehicle. If it starts it could have been a bad connection or a more serious problem requiring service if the fuse keeps blowing. If it does not start it could be the ignition switch or starter.

Renault Clio dashboard and side light blow fuse??


I found a solution to my problem on the Internet and it worked a treat

My problem was that the dashboard and both rear lights would not turn on, but the fuses were okay and nothing had been changed

It turns out that in the passenger footwell there are a few relays right in the footwell where a person would put their feet. At first it was suggested that you push your feet really hard against the front of the footwell to see if that helps, and it did, but the lights went out again later. So it was then suggested that you look for a loose relay box where the feet go (on the left hand side at the top of the footwell, nearish to the bonnet release catch). It turns out there are 2or3 relay boxes there. SImply push each one to ensure that it is correctly seated, and voila the lights work perfectly again.

A simple fix that costs nothing, saves a potentially costly visit to a garage, and can be undertaked without any tools are even needing to open the bonnet.

May not solve the problems of those blowing fuses etc, but certainly worked a treat for me
