SOURCE: cooling fan fuse

most likely the cooling fan has a short in it. disconnect the connector on the fan. If it doesn't blow now its the fan motor. If it still blows you have a short from the fuse to the motor. What this means is the hot wire is touching bare metal somewhere

SOURCE: blown ecu fuse

ECU= Electronic Control unit. This is what controls all the engine electronics. All the sensors on the engine and other things are routed through the part. What it does is tells the engine how to run. Each sensor plays a specific role. The ECU reads how much are the engine is getting, tells the engine how much gas it needs, etc. Try digging around a salvage and finding a new ECU. Swap it out, and if it is still blowing the ECU fuse then you need to start looking for shorts.

Try running both wires from battery ground and hot dont spin over more than likely the fan motor itself is burnt up.

  • Power Windows Completely Inoperative
  • Window regulator control switch.
  • Circuits open or shorted.
  • Window regulator electric drive.
  • Driver door module.
  • PERFORM Self Test to retrieve Diagnostic Trouble Codes. If no DTCs retrieved, GO to Pinpoint Test C .
  1. VISUAL INSPECTION CHART
  1. Mechanical
  2. Electrical
  • Front door power window regulator damaged.
  • Front window run damaged.
  • Front door window glass out of window run.
  • Front door window glass broken.
  • Lighting control module.
  • Driver door module.
  • Circuits open/shorted.
  • Loose, corroded connectors.
  • Damaged window regulator control switch.
  • Damaged window regulator electric drive.
  • Power distribution box Fuse D 40 for heated back window concern; Circuit Breaker 14 (20A), Circuit Breaker F (30A) or window regulator safety relay for power window concern.
  • Fuse junction panel Circuit Breaker 14 (20A), Fuses 6 (10A), 9 (5A), 15 (15A), Fuse 13 (10A), Fuse 4 (10A) or Circuit Breaker 12 (18A).
  • Scratched grid.

  1. If the inspection reveals obvious concerns that can be readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with Inspection and Verification.
  1. If the concern remains after the inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester, 007-00500 or equivalent, to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the driver door module, go to Pinpoint Test A . If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for lighting control module, go to Pinpoint Test B . If the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test is passed for the driver door module and lighting control module, retrieve continuous DTCs and execute self test diagnostics for the driver door module and lighting control module to retrieve current DTCs.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to Symptom Chart to continue diagnosis.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved for the driver door module, go to the Driver Door Module (DDM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnosis. If DTCs are retrieved for the lighting control module, go to the Lighting Control Module (LCM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the driver door module cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test A . If the lighting control module cannot be accessed by the NGS, go to Pinpoint Test B .
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
You'll need more then wiring diagrams ! A good scan tool for starters .

Turned key in ignition got no responce tried connect to ecu unable to respond


With a voltmeter check out the main battery fuse cartridge located in the fuse box usually 3 or 4 of them bolted to fuse box you cant mistake them they are the largest physically in the fuse box , If this reads ok check your Battery Earth strap and Engine earth strap .sometimes the dash lights if these straps are poor but they can not carry enough power to complete circuit.

The service engine soon light will not come for pretest before starting engine. It is an automatic fail for emissions test. 2002 gmc sierra.


This could be something as simple as the Service Engine Soon light bulb being burned out. Removing the instrument cluster isn't too terribly difficult, but if you can carefully pull it out of the dash, look behind where the bulbs are located and see if that one happens to be burned out.
I hope this helps! :)

LOOK UNDER THE HOOD IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. ON DRIVER SIDE FOR FUSE BOX.LOOK ON FUSE BOX COVER IT HAS LOCATION FOR FUSES AND RELAYS.MOST TIME PROBLEM WITH COOLING FAN CIRCUIT WILL CAUSE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT.BAD ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR WILL CAUSE COOLANT FANS NOT TO TURN CAUSE OVERHEATING. ON.REPLACE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP SEE IF STOP OVER HEATING. IF ALL LOOKS GOOD HOTWIRE COOLANT FANS MAKE SURE FAN MOTORS ARE GOOD AND NO SHORTS AT FAN CONNECTOR WIRES.

My temp gauge is not going and the fans are coming VW golf 2004


Hi, the fans are controlled from the engine ECU. The ECU recieves a signal fron the temperature sender unit which will then switch on the fans. The sender unit also controls the temperature gauge. Have a look at the fuses before you replace the temp sender unit as it might be a blown fuse. Most of the circuits are intergrated and running through different fuses. I hope this helps.

1995 Intrepid, 140,000miles, 3.3L engine, auto, A/C, ABS. When the outside temp gets hot some of the electrical system will not work. Power windows, A/C, interior fan. The Airbag and ABS idiot lights come...


The age of your vehicle might suggest that wires in your interior fuse box have either come loose, corroded or shorted out.  The high current once like A/C and interior fan may have caused the wires at the back of the fuse box to become embrittled due to heat.  I once had a problem with my starter circuit where the wire became so hard it couldn't be bent.  I replaced the section of wire to the fuse box and all the starting issues went away.
The only explanation for the Airbag and ABS, is that they too go to the fuse box.  I suggest checking wires behind the fuse box for the affected circuits (if you can remove it enough to see and feel behind it).  Using the VOM you can check for power at your fuses and focus on the ones without power.  Then check those wires first (remember most circuits don't energize until the key is turn on).
