Maybe it shorted out the computer or blew another fuse by it being stolen. Miami sells refurbed pcm s for the best price and e programs them (200 us) when you give them a vin number if that is it. Computers generally last around 10-12 years. It might just be a PCM fuse. I think your car has an under dash fuse box and a engine compartment fuse box. Most cars have them. This is my best guess. Maybe a old fuel filter or bad pressure valve on the fuel injector rail that feeds the injectors? It is vacuum operated on most cars.( the pressure valve I mean). It could be the diaphragm is busted and sending fuel into the vacuum line system.

SOURCE: I have an electrical problem.

well the window and seat problem is probably a broken wire in the harness between the door and body open rubber boot and inspect and repair
the fuel i would start by checking for power at connector back by fuel tank you should have power with key on for about 10 seconds then turn key off and wait for a few seconds and try if you have power it is probably the fuel pump

SOURCE: car wont start

I noticed you replace the crankshaft sensor, but not the CAMshaft sensor.
The Ignition module takes the input of both sensors to tell the coil when to energize.
This sensor should come up as an error code when you attach a obd reader.
Even if your light is not on - there may be a code. If it is not your vehicle originally, some people pull the bulb!

SOURCE: 89 firebird blows fuse that powers fuel pump and ecm?

That joint & where wires separate, would be a good spot to use a clamp on amp meter, if you have, or know someone who has one, then you could get reading on each one, and zero in on one(s) with most draw.

I have a 2002 GTP that did the exact same thing, it just stopped while i was driving down the freeway. I had to take it to a local GM shop and it turned out to be a short in the wiring harness. They charged me $250 to fix it.

It sounds like you may have burned out your fusable link. It's a special wire that comes off the starter solennoid and is designed to burn off in the event of an overload. DO NOT REPLACE IT WITH REGULAR WIRE, THIS IS A LEADING CAUSE OF CAR FIRES.
You will want to check for what caused the overload condition that caused the fusable link to burn out in the first place.

You should find a partial vacuum diagram sticker on the underside of the hood or possible on the core support frame or fenderwell. But to get a full vacuum diagram you will need to take a trip down to the nearest Ford service department. They may let you make a copy to take home with you.

Air condiditioner compressor replaced

If you replaced the compressor unit, normally R-12 or what ever is used, is evacuated and thus they create a vacuum, then recharge the system to the proper level of gas/ pressure. Vehicles have a vacuum controlled shut-off valve to stop or reduce the flow of anti freeze from the engine to the heater core, near the condenser. There is sometimes a pressure control valve or switch to control, when the actual compressor unit clutch engages to start to pump the gas to cool the cabin area of the vehicle.
There are also fuses/ circuit breakers near the left front fender well under the hood, and left driver's side under left side of dash. I am presuming that the clutch assembly on the compressor functions properly engaging/ disengaging, when system is properly "charged."

Fuse dodge caravan cruise control

Hi Mel, I'm glad to help! The most problems we have found here at the dealership is vacuum problem. Check the vacuum line going to the cruise control unit under the hood. Start the engine and let it idle. Next unhook the vacuum line at the unit and place your finger over the hose to see if you feel vacuum. If you don't the find the crack or where you have lost the vacuum. If it does have vacuum. Then you'll need to see if you have power to the Unit under the hood. Remove the connector and check for power, If you have no Power then replace the brake lamp switch. If you do have power then its a possibility the PCM is seeing something it doesn't like and is not providing ground to the unit or the PCM may be the problem. CAUTION: Do Not replace the PCM unless all other possibilities have been checked and repaired first. Note: Again vacuum problem or the most we have found to be the problem. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Mel.

Sounds like a vacuum leak at the canister or vacuum lines, lift the hood, start the car and listen for a hissing sound after it warms up, on the fender/frontend area there should be a black canister with vacuum hoses connected, check all the hoses end to end for leaks, there is a vacuum that is created in the tank that is controled (vented gas cap), if there is no vacuum in the canister to the fuel tank, this will cause the check engine light to come on (faulty gas cap). vacuum leaks cause the RPM to increase, I am surprized that's the only code you have. most cars have a diagram under the hood of the emissions.

Someone stole my 1992 volvo 960 station wagon. they stole everything in it including the owner's manual. i got it back but someone still has the extra key. i need to know where the fuses are and the...

Instead of the fuses you should try the relays. Fuses are commonplace and easy to just take a fuse from something not needed and slide it into the ignition slot and the car will start. You would have to remove all the fuses and then place them all in and it would be frustrating at best. Fuses are also pretty easy to come by. What I used to do until I had an alarm professionally installed was to go under the hood and find the car's relays which are basically self resetting fuses. Under the relay cover should be a diagram of which relay goes where but not that it really matters because generally the relays should be uniform. Just remove them and shut the hood. Once the starter relay is removed the vehicle will not start or even turn over for that matter. Unless this dude has a tow truck or incredibly strong arms and a lot of patience the car will not move. Plus it only takes a minute once you get the hang of it. Pop the hood remove all relays shut the hood and be on your way. Then when your ready to start the vehicle just put all of them back in. Another possible solution is to change the locks but that option isn't free. Either way though its up to you. I hope this helps....
