Sounds like you are hooking the battery up backwards. POWER goes to the fuse panel. Not ground!

SOURCE: 96 chevy truck, fuel pump relay switch (located under the hood, driver's side wheel well) keeps shorting out and melting fuse panel

I would replace the fuel pump and the fuel pump connector, both have problems in this year that cause excessive current draw and blow the fuse and overheat the system. If the relay socket terminals are discolored from heat that must be replaced as well. Of course before replacing any parts have a GM dealer confirm the problems i have guessed are to the cause.

You would be correct. The tipm is typically not serviceable. I do believe that on the 2010, you will need to return to the dealer or any other shop that can "flash" your ECM once you've replaced it.

Where is the fuel pump relay on 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7


There isn't a fuel pump relay , it is controlled by the totally integrated power module !

MODULE-TOTALLY INTEGRATED POWER

DESCRIPTION

The Totally Integrated Power Module (2)(TIPM) is a

combination unit that performs the functions of the

Power Distribution Center (PDC) and the Front Control

Module. The TIPM is a printed circuit board based

module that contains fuses, internal relays and a

microprocessor that performs the functions previously

executed by the FCM. The TIPM (2) is located in the

engine compartment, next to the battery (1) and connects

directly to the B+ cable (5) via a stud located on

top of the unit. The ground connection is via electrical

connectors. The TIPM provides the primary means of

voltage distribution and protection for the entire vehicle.

The molded plastic TIPM housing includes a base and

cover. The TIPM cover is easily opened or removed

for service and has a fuse and relay layout map integral

to the inside surface of the cover. The TIPM housing

base and cover are secured in place via mounting

tabs. The mounting tabs secure the TIPM (2) to the

battery tray mounting bracket (3).

OPERATION

All of the current from the battery and the generator output enters the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) via

a stud on the top of the module. The TIPM cover is removed to access the fuses or relays. Internal connections of

all of the power distribution center circuits is accomplished by a combination of bus bars and a printed circuit board.

For complete circuit diagrams, refer to the appropriate wiring information. The wiring information includes wiring

diagrams, proper wire and connector repair procedures, details of wire harness routing and retention, connector
pin-out information and location views for the various wire harness connectors, splices and grounds.

Which fuse in the fuse box is for the power windows


Check fuses on panel, then check all connectors, check for kinked or frayed wire, then lastly, the circuit board for your panel! Not an easy task as you are checking for continuity between connections. If its the circuit board on your arm rest I would suggest a junk yard for a known good operating board. Make sure they have some type of guarantee as these are expensive new! Hope this helps Interior Fuse Box Location 2003 2009 Lexus GX470 2007 Lexus GX470 4 7L V8
The video above shows how to replace blown fuses in the interior fuse box of your 2007 Lexus GX470 in addition to the fuse panel diagram location. Electrical components such as your map light, radio, heated seats, high beams, power windows all have fuses and if they suddenly stop working, chances are you have a fuse that has blown out. If your GX470 is experiencing electrical problems, you should always check the fuses first, because they are relatively easy to check and cheap to change. Some Lexuss have multiple interior fuse boxes including in the trunk - the video above will show you where the interior fuse box of your 2007 GX470 is located. If your GX470 has many options like a sunroof, navigation, heated seats, etc, the more fuses it has. Some components may have multiple fuses, so make sure you check all of the fuses that are linked to the component in question.

If you need to replace a blown fuse in your GX470, make sure you replace it with one that has the same amperage as the blown fuse. If checking and replacing the fuse for the component in question doesn't work, we recommend seeking assistance from a trusted professional mechanic. They should be able to figure out if the component needs to be replaced or if there is a short or some other problem with your GX470.

Fuse mirror


There isn't any single fuse that supplies power to just the mirror motors.

Was welding on the frame and now my truck won't start, lights won't come on, windows won't go up or down. Replaced the computer but that did not fix it. It's a 93 GMC 3500 one ton dually 454 2 wheel drive.


I'm guessing you were doing arc welding as opposed to gas welding, right? Battery should be disconnected any time you're arc welding. Check the fusible link located somewhere along the positive battery cable (the positive cable may run to a battery junction box with up to five fusible link cables coming out of it). Check voltage from battery positive cable (cable connected) or continuity (cable disconnected) to downstream point beyond fusible link. Fusible links cannot be repaired - they must be replaced. Good luck.

I have a 2005 Jeep Wrangler X. When the power distribution center is connected there is a short to ground. Removing the battery connection to the power distribution center the short goes away. I have...


its bad,the PDC
no country stated, no engine stated,? why?
the 2005 (answering for USA)
PDC hard short all fuses, all breakers all relay out
means what?
well power distribution2 below shows all that, every wire there.
ASD relay pulled? you never said relays, they can (weld closed inside contacts can)) and is unfused, this relay. fact
i read the 22 pages for you there,
its just fuses and relays, no magic until 2007 (TIPM electronics)
this car is easy fix,. due to 2005 year.

looking now , TJ unlimited it is.
see the manual yet, see how this all works 2003 to 2006 year.
chapter 8w shows wiring, and modules the rules.

8w, pdc 2, chapter see that here, its there, clear as day.'

Battery is good, alternator is good. when car is off the battery is drained


  1. Follow these steps.
    Remove the negative side battery cable from the negative battery terminal.
  2. Connect the black wire to the com input on the multimeter and the red wire to the 10A or 20A input on the multimeter. the meter needs to be able to read at least a 2 or 3 amps for this test to work. Connecting the red wire to the mA input on the multimeter won't work and could damage the meter.
  3. Attach a multimeter(set the dial on the multimeter to measure Amps as per multimeters instructions) between the negative cable and the negative battery post. Wait a few seconds to several minutes for the car to go into sleep mode - i.e. when you make the contact with the ammeter, the cars computer systems "wake up". After a bit of time they will go back to "sleep".
  4. If the ammeter is reading over 25-50 milliamps, something is using too much battery power.
  5. Go to the fuse panel(s) and remove fuses, one at a time. Pull the main fuses (higher amp ratings)last. Perform the same steps for relays found in the fuse panel. Sometimes relay contacts can fail to release causing a drain. Be sure to observe the ammeter after pulling each fuse or relay.
  6. Watch for the ammeter to drop to acceptable drain. The fuse that reduces the drain is the draw. Consult the owners' manual or service manual to find what circuits are on that fuse.
  7. Check each device (circuit) on that fuse. Stop each lamp, heater, etc. to find the drain.
  8. Repeat steps 1&2 to test your repair. The ammeter will tell you exact numbers.
  9. You can also try unhooking the big wire from your alternator. The alternator can sometimes have a shorted diode that can cause amps to flow through the alternator's power cable and through the shorted diode and into the case and through the bolts and back to the negative battery terminal. This will drain a battery in a hurry.Make sure to read the ammeter before and after unplugging your Alternator

Where is the tipm located on teh 2004 dodge ram 1500?


I quote from the service manual:

"The Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) is a combination unit that performs the functions of the Power Distribution Center (PDC) and the Front Control Module. The TIPM is a printed circuit board based module that contains fuses, internal relays and a microprocessor that performs the functions previously executed by the FCM.

This link also provides interesting info on reflashing (re-programming) Dodge Ram TIPM module.
