Sounds like a minor short somewhere.... firstly check around near the Alternator for any possible wires in the wrong place..... but I doubt if you will see anything wrong.... This COULD be an Auto Elec job.... but check first just in case it is a loose wire or something

SOURCE: reversing lights not work

sounds like it could just be the reverse sensor located on the acctual gearbox under bonnet, you can tell which one it is as it is one of possible two.

SOURCE: 100 amp fuse in engine

For the 100 main amp fuse to blow it has to be a alternator issue , ECM or dead short with the electrical part of the ignition switch.
If the alternator is replaced and still the fuse blows then
check the actual electrical contacts of the ignition switch to see if they are shorted out.------
Check the wire between alternator B+ (large wire) and battery for problems. check negative ground wires to chasis and motor. --------- Also recheck all battery, starter alternator and ground wires and see , that no wire is connected in reverse order.------ Also try cleaning the 100 amp fuse socket with contact cleaner and then install the fuse and see , if it still blows.------Many a time fuse socket itself gets dirty and cause fuses to blow.------ Getting this possibilities checked should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

disconnect the neg batt cable and bridge it with a test light, it should light up and dim after a few seconds, if it stays bright you have a short in one or more circuits, pull each fuse one at a time to see if you can locate which circuit, good luck

The abs light came on and air conditioner started blowing hot. After work the batt was dead. Jumped it and guages were dead for about 30 sec. About 10 miles later abs light went off and air got cold again....


It sounds like the engine is running on battery power only.The engine of today`s technology needs the alternator to have enough ignition to run on,lights and computer,etc,will be affected by low voltage,and amps.The alternator is not charging,look for a charging fuse to see if it is blown.If the fuse is fine,replace the alternator,and have the battery recharged on a slow 2 amp charge so it will recover it`s loss of deep cycle amps.This will prolong battery life and alternator.If I can help let me know.Let me know the out come.

Low fuel light indicator


try checking for other fuses, replace them with the same ampacity. With the radio, radio and light are on the same fuse i believe the lights for the radio are bad. If fuses are okay maybe the light bulb for the low fuel indicator has blown the light bulb can be replaced.

Reverse lights fuse blew


hi
check the wire because if the fuse keep blowing there's a wire somewhere on the car that has contact with the frame so everytime you put your car on reverse the 12V wire shortcut on the frame so the fuse blow check all your positive wire and your bulb as well
Good luck

Engine / emission light and burned out alternator


Oxygen sensor might be faulty, as it causes the light to come on, but injectors hardly causes the light to come on, alternator( battery) light is an indication that the alternator needs to be replaced.
