Question about 2005 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

Fuse blows out 5-10 min after replacement

Fuse blows out just minutes after replacement for heated front seats, both power chair adjusters, power pedal adjust, and passenger side only power windows (front and rear). Power locks still operate, power windows still operate on driver's side (front and rear). These accessories will operate for a very short time after fuse replacement, but it's not necessary to use any before fuse will go out. Fuse will burn out even if none of these items are touched during operation of the vehicle. All it takes is starting the truck and waiting a few minutes. The passenger rear window had started dragging pretty badly and then stopped functioning a few weeks before the fuse business started. When operating the switch, there was an obvious heavy electrical drain. Thinking this could be the culprit, I disconnected the motor and switch from the harness inside the passenger rear door. Fuse blowing problem remains. Not sure where to start looking for this, any help greatly appreciated.

    I disconnected the power window motor and switch just as a test by the way, wasn't an attempted fix.

2006 tahoe with heated seats. when the seat is

The heating element in the seat may be failing, even thogh it heats the seat, the element could be causing the circut to spike upon power shut down. Relay takes mili-second to shut down after ignition kill and power feed comes direct from battery. Check amp. draw at switch of bad seat and good seat upon shut down. If bad seat higher that 5 amp difference element n/g. Also check for bad relay as they can short internal and cause problems if primary power cut before switch shut down.

What would cause my power seats to just stop working

You blew a fuse or a relay if not the wires are probably nicked and grouned out to the chair causing a fuse to blow

The driver seat heater just quit. all fuses are good. how do you tell if the relay is good?

Swap it with a relay you know to be good and see if it works again,pick a relay that is not important to the function of your car.

2003 Chevy s 10. The fuse marked cruise control module, body control module, heated seats (it doesn't have heated seats) keeps blowing. It can happen 1 minute down the road or 10 minutes. The odd thing is...

The fuse in question also powers the instrument panel cluster ,also goes to SP200 -splice pack 200 where it powers BCM , CCM,multifunction switch - turn sig. headlamp dimmer switch and the WSW .Also if you have utility vehicle without memory seats it powers the front seats lumbar switch . Do you know how to check circuit's for a short ? Locate SP200 Splice Pack SP200
(CKT 41, CKT 241, CKT 341, CKT 817) Strapped to the body harness, under carpet in the RH dash area about 30cm (12 in) from the right kick panel .Do you know what a splice pack look's like ?

gm splice pack-5vwjdo4vj5u5qn0cs4zh2oxv-4-5.gif Disconnect circuit's one at a time till the fuse doesn't blow , then you found the problem circuit or componet . Disconnecting the BCM will cause the vehicle not to start an run . Anti-theft system . You mite try having the BCM checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes

A/c fan only blows to floor will not adjust to dash vents

Under the back seat on the drivers side is a fuse panel. Fold the seat forward, remove the fuse block cover, and locate the HVAC fuses.They are 10 amp fuses, remove the fuses and let set for 5 min or so. Reinstall the fuses, start the vehicle and the A/C system should do a relearn. It will take1 minute to do so do not touch any controls for at least 1 min. This should help. Good Luck

Front passenger power seat inoperable

That is the power distribution center, the fuse box is under the dash to the left of the steering column under a cover, they are marked, the plastic cover will have FUSES molded into it.
