Fuse blowing The fuse that controls my radio, interior lights, door locks keeps blowing. We have replaced it several times in 2 months. The shop we use says they can not fix it and we have to go to a Mitsu shop. Any ideas?

About the only thing i can come up with is to check the wires where they run through the door jam. That's usually where they break, and short out.

My radio, interior light, and automatic door locks don't work. Which fuse's do I change when the burned out one's I have changed keep blowing out?

Fuses are a circuit's way of saying HELP! When fuses blow there is almost always something malfunctioning to cause it - possible even the wiring itself. Without system schematics and proper tools and training, the average DIYer is not going to correct this type of problem. Even some techs at local shops are stymied by electrical issues like these. There are specialists to do nothing but Auto Electrical work. They have special equipment and training to fix these problems. They are usually no more expensive, labor-wise, than any other shop, but they are more likely to find the problem quickly, and more important, CORRECTLY, the first time. Look one of them up. Whatever you attempt, be warned....putting in larger value fuses may only produce what we in the business like to call a "smoke test". Larger fuses will allow more current to flow before blowing the fuse, often at the expense of the wiring itself. Once the wires melt (the "smoke" part of the test), the repair costs multiply rapidly...if repairs are even cost-effective after the damage is done!

Why does my 2002 jeep liberty keep blowing the #34 fuse?

This is most likely a short in one of the door wires. It could be very hard to locate.

Door ajar light

I found that when I opened the right rear door several times I could get the problem to clear. Once I got the problem to clear I tired to keep any one from using that door. Once they forgot and opened that door again I was back in trouble again! I finely replaced the switch in that door and problem was corrected. Wish you luck this can drive you crazy..

Interior lights and radio stopped working and locks won't lock unless keys are in ignition

Hi Laura, Im glad to help!

Laura, anytime a fuse is blowing that means that the power side of the circuit is shorting out against something that's metal, it also can be a part itself that's shorting out. This is a very time consuming issue to find and can wind up costing you an arm and a leg. Call me Al 314-374-5218. Shorts are very common but must be traced down on the circuit fuse that is blowing. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Laura.

Blow fuse for interior lights and windows

The short is probably an electronic device which shorted a semi conductor in it's cicuit. Even replacing a fuse will only blow them out right away. Do you notice anything electronic that do not work? For example the radio or something. Anyways I am from houston as well.

Interior wiring in drivers door. Radio, mirror lights, dome light on console, trunk light, power door locks and electric mirror switches don't seem to work. I suspect a fuse, #4 20 amp. under the hood and...

do you have an aftermarket stereo? if you do, unplug it and see how long the fuses last. check your lighter and make sure there are no foreing object in there that can cause a short. when you replace the fuses, take notice of which action causes the fuses to blow... for example, door lock unlock, are they still ok, door lock, lock..check again, mirror left, still ok, so forth and so on. take it one at a time and see which action causes them to blow. when they blow do it again to see if the same action that caused them to blow the first time did it again, then trace those wires. you probably have a bad relay somewhere.

None of the power door lock switches work.

Have you checked the wires between the doors and body, they will break in time, and yours is a year where they could be broken now, they don't last forever.. that will cause the fuse blowing, and the locks not working.
Check all doors, but most likely the Drivers door or Passenger door will be the culprit......

Security Light always on, door lock fuse keeps blowing

This is most likely a problem with your Passlock anti-theft system which is known issue with these cars. Passlock is a "passive" anti-theft system, which means that it will disable your ability to start the car if it thinks there is a problem. The three components that can cause this are: 1) Ignition Switch, 2) Ignition Cylinder, 3) Body Control Module (computer). The dealer is the only one who can solve this problem (unless you can bypass it, but it is not that easy). Estimated repair from most dealers is $800 and up.
