I don't have no radio after getting my main fuse by the motor replaced looked at fuse box all in japanese googgled elgrand but gave diagram but fuses seem ok if i checked them properly thanks


You can check every fuse on the car in 5 minutes, without even pulling the fuse out to inspect it. You just need a cheap test light, one with an electrical lead with a clip and a needle type probe.

On the tops of all fuses (maxi-fuses, regular fuses, & mini-fuses) are two indents with metal showing, one at each end of the top.
For the under hood fuses, clip the tester lead to the negative post of the battery. Touch the positive battery post with the probe to check your ground clip is good-tester should light up. Now turn the key to on, not start, and touch the tester probe to one end of a fuse in the little slot-it should light up-(almost) every fuse on the car will have power going through it with the key in on. Now you probe the other end of fuse: If fuse is good, tester will light on both ends of fuse. A blown fuse will only light the tester on one end of fuse. If both ends light, fuse is good, and move to next fuse.

For the fuses inside the car, just clip the tester lead to a good ground point-a metal screw or metal bracket under the dash. Again with key in on, touch a fuse end in that testing slot. If tester doesn't light,. check or reposition the ground lead till you see the tester light up. Now touch each fuse on both ends. A good fuse will light the tester on both ends of fuse, a blown fuse will only light tester on one end of the fuse. There, you are done. You not only have checked all fuses, you have verified that power is going through the fuse panel.

There may be one or two fuses that won't light the tester on either end with key on. Some cars have an interior lights fuse that only gets power with the head or park light switch turned on. And some cars have a "crank" fuse that only gets power when the key is in crank or start. (A fuse for the radio will certainly have power with key in on.) There are a few fuses that are hot at all times (like brake lights fuse, and most if not all of the maxi-fuses). But with key on, (almost) every fuse should show power and light up a test light. good luck.

Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter on a 1964 ford fairlane?


There's only one fuse block on the old cars, in the instrument panel on the driver's side. If the fuses are not labeled, use a test light to check every fuse. Only takes 5 minutes.
These are the old style fuses, with a round cylindrical clear glass in the middle? They push into metal clips on each end of the fuse?

Then ground a test light to a good ground under the dash- a bolt, screw, or metal. Now turn the key to ON. Every fuse should now be powered. Touch one end of the fuse or the metal clips with the test light-it should light up. If it doesn't, recheck the ground clip of tester-have to have a good ground. A good fuse will light the tester on both ends of the fuse. A bad or blown fuse will only light the tester on one end of the fuse. Power comes in on one side of the fuse terminal, and if the fuse is good, power will also be on both ends or terminals of the fuse.
A few fuses are hot at all times- the horn, tail lights, and brake lights for example. With key on, all fuses are hot-should have power on them. Modern fuses can be tested this way as well-all modern fuses have a test port on each end of the top of the fuse-this port is open to the metal strip inside the fuse. If power is on both ends of the fuse at the test ports, that fuse is good-you don't have to take it out to inspect-use a test light and check for blown fuses this way.

To test a cig. lighter: Ground the test light lead. Pull out the lighter. Use the needle probe of tester and carefully touch the center element inside the lighter base-the heating element-don't let the probe touch the sides of the case when touching the heating element-you may blow the fuse. If the lighter is good, with key on, the element should have power-will light up the tester. If the base part is good, has power, then maybe the pull out piece that lights cigarettes is bad. Or the lighter case is not grounded good. Some are case grounded to the metal dash, but some may have a ground wire on the back side of the base, behind the dash-check for that. The power wire to the lighter attaches at the center of the lighter base. If there is a ground wire, it will be attached on the side of the base, again this is behind the dash.

No power to windows, radio, dash


I would start by checking if the under dash fuse panel is getting power to all the fuses. A few will be hot at all times (like the brake light fuse, horn fuse), but with key on, all fuses in the fuse panel should have power available to them.
Use a test light, clip the ground clip to a metal bracket, and use the test light probe to touch the fuses at the ends-the little indents on top of fuse is open to the metal strip in the fuse. When the probe touches that strip, the test light should light, meaning power is getting to the fuses. No light? Maybe not grounded good-keep trying until you get a light when touching the fuses through that little **** at top of fuse. When you have a good ground, check all fuses. With key on, all fuses should have power-now you can check the radio fuse and dash fuse.

You can do this also to check for a blown fuse. Even a blown fuse will light the tester on one end of fuse. A good fuse will light tester on both ends of fuse. A blown fuse will only light tester on one end. You can check fuses this way without pulling the fuse out to inspect.
If no power to the fuse panel or to part of the panel, look for a bad fusible link or maxi fuse that distributes power to the fuse panel. There may also be a relay (ignition relay) that the key switch turns on to send power to the fuses that are hot in accessory or run.

My car is a 2006 honda accord. a friend somehow mixed the terminals up and the radio went dead when we finally got it right. it hasnt come on sinse then


Terminals for what, the battery? Anyway, you likely blew a fuse-check the fuse panel under the dash-should be a radio fuse. Radios often have two power sources, both would be fused, sometimes a power wire has an inline fuse.
If you find the radio fuse and it is good, better use a test light and check that your fuse panel is getting power to it. The radio fuse would have power to it with the key in ON. In fact, with key on, every fuse in the fuse panels would show power on a test light. The little slots at the top ends of every fuse are open to the metal strip inside the fuse. Ground the test light lead to a metal bracket or screw, and touch the test light probe into the slot. With key on, every good fuse will light the test light on both ends of the fuse-fuse is good and has not blown-a bad fuse will only light up the test light on one end of the fuse-the metal strip inside has blown apart.
You can check all your fuses this way-don't have to pull them out to inspect. But also most important for you to know is, does your fuse panel have power being fed to it. If those terminals were battery terminals, you may have blown a bigger fuse that feeds the fuse panel, one of your maxi fuses under the hood in the Power Distribution Box.
Good luck. Post back with what you find.

Have 2002 Bonneville, shut car off now have no power, no lights, horn nothing. Can wiggle ignition key, relays start clicking even with ignition off and key removed, will drain battery and battery...


Could be, sounds like a big electrical short somewhere. First check that it didn't kill your battery. Have it tested. If it is old, just replace it- you have to have a fully charged battery to do any checking or testing. Check all your fuses, and it would really be good to know there is power to the fuse. All of the maxi fuses are hot at all times. Use a simple test light to check they have power-one will feed the ignition switch and one or two others are for the head lights and lighting. You can check every fuse on the car, both underhood and inside the car at those fuse panels -with key on EVERY fuse on the car should have power to it. Just touch the test light probe to the top end of the fuse, that little indent is a test port to check for power. Every fuse has those openings, one at each end. A good fuse will light your testlight at both ends of the fuse. A bad or blown fuse will only light one end of the test light.
You may have lost power right off the battery if nothing works. How warm were those battery terminals? A poor connection will create a lot of heat, but that would likely be hot hot...lol
Start with a fresh battery, make sure cables and connections are good, make sure the fuses are good and have power, then hit the switch-if it blows something, bad switch or a short in a wire.
Good luck, Don.

How do find the radio fuse when it is blown


Easy way. With a test light connected to ground ( a test light is a tool that looks like a ice pick with a clear handle with a bulb inside, and a wire coming out the end with a clip on it) Connect the clip on the light to a metal ground under the dash and with the fuse panel where you can see it, touch the pointer to each side of the back of the fuses, with the key on. The light should lght on both sides of a good fuse. If a fuse lights the light on one side and not the other it's blown. For the radio to work three fuses all need to be good as theirs all the time power and key on power and lighting as the dash lights power. The cigar fuse many times provides the all the time power, But if it's blown the radio won't play. Pull one fuse at a time and look at them to see if the bar inside the fuse is good ( they can look good and be bad) back to the test light meathod, Look the fuses up in the owers manul and it'll tell you the location of the fuse but the radio fuse can be good and the radio strill not work as the cigar fuse has to be good too, There;s another fuse panel under the hood that has the main fuses near the battery, Again the test light is fastest and easiest as any fuse blown even though it's not the radio fuse can make the radio not play. Aftermarket radios can have inline fuses instlled by the radio installer and some have fuses right on the back of the radio.

My ranning lights on rear end dosnt work. My brake lights work turn singnals work but my running lights don,t work and dash lights


GET A GOOD FUSE TESTER, TEST ALL THE FUSES. THERE IS A FUSE BOX UNDER THE DASH, CHECK EACH FUSE TURN ON HEADLIGHT SWITCH, THE FUSES CAN BE TESTED WHILE STILL IN THE FUSEBOX. POWER ON ONE SIDE, FUSE IS BAD. POWER ON BOTH SIDES, FUSE IS GOOD. POWER ON NEITHER SIDE, SPARE FUSE. IF THERE IS NO POWER AT THE TAIL LIGHT FUSE, THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH MAY BE BAD. IF THE FUSES ARE THE OLDER GLASS BARREL TYPE THEY MAY HAVE BECOME CORRODED OR RUSTY. IF SO YOU WILL NEED TO CLEAN THE FUSE BOX CONTACTS WITH FINE GRIT SANDPAPER & PUT IN A NEW FUSE.
