Why does my 1999 cougar have power when all fuses are out of both fuse boxes


You have a lot of work ahead of you. Mostly taking the wiring harness apart and finding and fixing wires, What you described shouldn't happen. Yes you definetely have a short, several of them. Good luck.

M38 fuse keep blowing


the parts are shorted, the FUSE stops the fire. and flames.
we fix this buy isolating the shorted part.
we do that with an ammeter. (there are other ways, ask)
i see the ammeter prove short then
i try each door manually , 1 by one form the local door switch lock
to see if one door blows the fuse when activated.
BINGO, so then unplug that door lock solenoid, still blow the fuse
(i use a fuse substitute device (sold in all good auto-stores) called a fuse, circuit breaker converter)
lock sol, removed, still blows?, yes? then harness shorts, (hard work)
if Sol, pulled cures over-current, its bad. a shorted soleniod.

there are other ways, ill just list them.
no ammeter?
no C-Breaker.?
  1. use a light bulb in place of fuse. (i use a head light in a box)
  2. a current limited power supply in place of fuse. (see over current)
  3. Pul all parts, 1 by one on this bad line and a box of fuses.
there are 4 ways.
I always use an amp clamp meter on the line
and the circuit breaker trick.
then pull parts. and conn. on the bad feed. (lots there are)

that's it, for shorts.

I need to b y pass fuse block in fuse box to fix turn signal


To by-pass the fuse to fix a problem will be a foolish move as the fuses are there to protect the circuit in the event of a dead short. If one wire burns in a harness it normally burns out all the rest so the problem gets out of control. It would be far better to fix the problem in the fuse box first.

There is no cover for the fuse box for a montero sports mitsubishi 2003


PLEASE DO NOT TRY ANY THING OUT OF YOUR OWN SINCE IF YOU FIX WITH A HIGH FUSE CAPACITY IT WILL NOT BLOW IN SHORT CIRCUIT AND YOUR CAR WILL TURN INTO FIRE IN SECONDS.
SUGGEST YOU CHECK WITH THE MANUFACTURER OR CHECK INTERNET FOR FUSE BOX FOR CORRECT FUSE.

How do i fix a short in my fusebox


You do not have a shorted fuse box, you have a shorted trun signal circuit. The fuse just blows due to the short in the wiring or switch, not in the fuse box.

When you press the brakes on my 2002 blazer everything comes on fuel pump head lights radio . how can i fix this


You have a short in your fuse box or wire harness at your fuse box. Inspect the fuse box under the hood and on the side of the dash and look for any signs of corrosion or damages. Repair or replace any damaged component found caused by corrosion or bad wire harness causing a short.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya
