You are right... You will need to check your fuses. You can buy a fuse puller and pull each one out to check to see if the metal bar is separated or you can often times just tell by looking at it. Most interior fuses is on drivers side .

Are you sure that you looked at ALL the Fuses? Could be the Cigarette Lighter Fuse or a Fuse under the Hood in That Fuse Box. There are a Few fuses that Link between the Fuse Boxes and Have Multiple Functions. Try this and see.

Hello, Im Ron . Im going to Try to Help you Here. First the Cooling Fan. The Cooling Fan has A Micro-Relay # 37 In the Fuse/Relay Box UNDER_-HOOD IN this type Circuit You Have 3 Step Process to Control the Fan, 1 is the Temperature Sensor, 2 Is the Relay, 3 is the Fan. When Engine Gets Up to Operating temp. 220 Degrees the Sensor Grounds out & signals ECM of Engine
Temp and ECM Tickles the Relay to Turn ON the Fan.

In your Case I would RULE OUT Poor + Terminal Connections @ Battery Accessory Cables. AND Poor - Terminal @ Battery & Or Body Ground
THEN Test the Fan By BYPASSING to it With a Test wire With A + wire to the + side of Fan this is to Make Sure it Works .
Some Techs. Replace Sensor and Relay as A Pair Sense the Two are Fairly Inexpensive, but usualy you can Hear & or Feel the Relay "CLICK" If None Replace it. Shift Lock, Theres A Soliniod at Shifter that Unlocks ti WHEN you Apply the BRAKE, it is Controled By the Brakelight Switch.

I Strongly Suggest That you Check All Harness's From Battery to Interior, & Fuse Box.
I Know this seems Wild But With Limited Resorces & Lititure to work from this Is Where I Go.

SOURCE: clock and radio doesn't light up when car turned on

I used pliers to pull out the entire plastic shroud around the fuse, then put the fuse into the shroud and then plugged the whole assembly back in.

2008 kia rio dome light doesnt work when door is open but works manually


You didn't mention if one door or all doors.
If only one door then most likely that door switch.
if none of the doors will make it come on, the see if you have a dome light control as my Kia can be set for all from switch near mirror.
Not thinking a fuse since it will turn on manually.

What would cause the doom light fuse on my 2006 Kia Rio to keep blowing?


It is because there is a hard short to ground. It is either the wires have a short leading to the dome light, the dome light itself has a short, or the switch that turns the domelight on has a short. I would suspect either a bad switch or bad domelight if you have not messed with any wiring.

2002 Dodge Van towing a Rock Climbing Wall. No


I would think that the wires from the RCW (rock climbing wall) that control the running lights are wired to the interior dash lights of the van, and a fuse blew, killing the above mentioned lights. Check the fuse block for a bad fuse, probably labeled inst lights or inst lgt. Did you make the trip there in daylight, and trip home at night? The fuse for the dash lights couldn't handle the extra drain of the RCW running lights.
