Pass side fuse box dead after arching the battery, no power

Purchased a 93 Lesabre about a week ago with 98k on it. While switching the batteries out I accidentally arched the battery. Now the only thing that works is the drivers puddle light. All fuses on drivers side and under the hood have tested good. I swapped out each relay with a new one to eliminate them as a problem. So far I've found that there is one relay(4th from left) that isn't getting power to it and the passenger side fuse box under the dash also isn't getting any power to it. All fuses in the panel seem to be ok. Im not sure how to find the problem...

Chances are its one of the fuseable links at the starter. The car gets some of its power thru those wires. They look like regular wires except they have an internal fuse. You may need a wiring diagram to figure out which circuit is affected.

SOURCE: rear window defroster, no driver heated seat

check the ground on the passenger side of the rear window under the trim panel. That is what was wrong with mine.

SOURCE: We understand that your problem is: bought 94 pa

I would check around the starter for a fusible link that stretches with about 5 lbs. of pull, when blown. They can be identified by seeing a small foam rubber round piece on the apparently color coded wires coming off of the starter. This may explain why the accessories are not working correctly and the regular fuses are not blown.

Good luck on this repair.

SOURCE: car cranked for about 5

I would check the connections at the battery for the pos. and neg. posts or side posts. If it cranked, then it should keep on cranking for more than 5 sec if the connections are good and the battery is fully charged.

There are fusible links, but they generally won't blow because of cranking.

Good luck on this repair.

1995 Geo prizm, no power to fuse 10 in fuse box under left side steering column ,no power to distributor or fuel injectors,were does power come from


dead engine,
do head lamps work?
on a dead car, dead engine, all power comes from the main car battery. and all power feeds are fused.
if fuses blow, no power to that feed.
if the battery is dead so will be the head lamps and hand lamps
do not take a key top work (a safety feature)
this car is toyota corolla. (with geo stickers)
how do you know power is missing from F10?
you used a voltmeter there? or test lamp? how>?
there were 2 engines, 4A and 7AFE engines.
ill guess and answer for 4AFE engine
Fuse 10 is not a number its the current rating of the fuse.
and is maked (you didnt show a photo of fuse, nor where it is)
is marked IGN
now ill answer with the schematic. (makes it 10x more easy)
now power feeds IGN fuse, from the key switch
if that switch works the power come to it from
AM2 fuse
If AM2 is dead then the battery is dead. or
the battery ground is bad.
or the battery lugs are rusty
or the battery is only discharged, so charge it.
or jumper cable start car like you see the AAA tow truck man do.

Pass side fuse box has no power after arching the battery. Need help!


Good you have tried it! I pressume all fuses and relays are fine. Check if there are broken wires from the main source of the distritbution fuse boxes. Now, try to supply the said relay (from the left) using jumper wires from the distribution fuse box voltage source. Goodluck.

2002 buick Lesabre (Limited) - When operating the AC I have warm air coming out of the on driver's side vents and cold air on coming out the passanger side vents.


check battery,battery cables,starter,starer solenoid, check if your battery have any power left, by turning lights on, if light is strong then on the starter motor,remove the remote wire, the thin wire connected to the starter from the ign. switch, instead of the remote cable, try to by pass it, with battery voltage, with ign switch on on pasition, if your starter works the starter is good if not change the estater, if starter works then check the remote wire, could be damage, could be the starter switch, fuse , or the starter relay. when working on car always make sure if the engine starts there is rotsting components. Thanks

1991 chevy 1500 no power to radio fuse


if you got a spark when you touch it to the side (which is the ground) the wire is a power source that should go to the terminal at the back of the lighter. there is no relay for this circuit so change the new fuse it's blown and check for burnt wires.

If you have to arch the starter solenoid then its your starter goinng bad. It would be a good idea to also get your batterie tested to make sure you have all your bases covered.(starter & Batterie can be tested at your local parts store)

Sliding power doors will not open


Just had the same problem with my '05 van. I put the Master Switch in the off position. I pulled fuse #7 on the driver side sub panel, located just above the engine hood release. I then disconnected the neg. terminal on the battery. I manually opened the pass. side slider and closed it.

I reconnected the battery and replaced fuse #7. I put the master door switch in the on position. I activated the auto door switch, and it worked.

1988 Buick Lesabre drained battery


Sounds like you have a bad alternator. but first , check the battery connection o the positive side where the cables overlap eachother. they like to corrode in between the two cables and do just what your saying. but it really sounds like you need an alternator. have someone check the red wire on the back of the alternator and see if there is power there al the time- should be. if so replace the alternator, i have had many new or not vary old one fail. - good luck
