Blown fuse on fuel pump 1996 Ford explorer Replaced fuse drove vehicle home. Now it will not start.


A blown fuse is an indication of circuit overload. Did you replace the fuse with one of the same value or higher? is this the standard current rating for that circuit (usually marked on the fuse cover.

If the engine cranks remove a spark plug tape it to the intake manifold or somewhere where there is clean bare metal (please not near the battery) check for spark if ok reinstall plug if not replace the ECM fuse and relay with alternatives in the fuse box if this gets the pump going replace the ECM fuse and or relay then check for fuel turn on the ignition you should hear the pump run and then shutoff if not replace the pump fuse and relay with alternatives in the fuse box if this gets the pump going replace the pump fuse and or relay

How to replace an auto fuse


Cars and trucks use fuses for many different components. Every now and then, one of the fuses will blow. You can take your car to a mechanic if you want, but it will be much cheaper to replace the fuse yourself.

Replacing a fuse is different for every vehicle, but the same general procedure applies. The first thing you'll have to do is get a replacement fuse. Open your vehicle's fuse box (typically either underneath the steering wheel or under the hood -- your owner's manual can tell you exactly where) and locate the blown fuse. All fuse boxes should include a diagram that tells you which fuse controls which components, so you can tell where the blown fuse is. If you have a circuit tester or multimeter, you can test the fuse to verify that it has been blown.

Once you've found the bad fuse, get a replacement fuse of exactly the same size and rating. Most auto shops or hardware stores sell fuses, typically in variety packs for a couple of dollars.

When removing the old fuse, you can use your fingers or a pair of tweezers, or you can get a specially-made fuse extractor (which is just a fancy pair of tweezers). You can also use needle-nose pliers, but if you do, be careful not to squeeze too hard and crack the fuse.

Make sure the car is turned off when removing or installing a fuse. Put the new fuse in gently, facing the same direction as the old fuse. Once it has snapped into place, close the fuse box and turn the car on. Test the component that the fuse controls and verify that it works. If it doesn't, the fuse may not be pushed in all the way, or the new fuse may be bad.

Show how to replace power outlet fuse for 2006 Toyota Camry


Interior Fuse Box Location 2002 2006 Toyota Camry 2006 Toyota Camry LE 2...

The video above shows how to replace blown fuses in the interior fuse box of your 2006 Toyota Camry 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 Camry is experiencing electrical problems, you should always check the fuses first, because they are relatively easy to check and cheap to change. Some Toyotas have multiple interior fuse boxes including in the trunk - the video above will show you where the interior fuse box of your 2006 Camry is located. If your Camry 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 Camry, 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 Camry.

Good Luck

Need to replace the fuse in space 19 in the under the hood fuse box of my 1999 Chevrolet Tracker>


Take off the negative battery terminal first. Use pliers to pull the fuse remnants out. If not enough room, try removing surrounding fuses. The fuse only has two spade terminals into the fuse block. Pull on them back and forth until loose.

Fuses protect all the major electrical systems in the car. In case of an electrical overload, the fuse melts, breaking the circuit and stopping the flow of electricity.
If a fuse blows, the cause should be investigated and corrected before the installation of a new fuse. This, however, is easier to say than to do. Because each fuse protects a limited number of components, your job is narrowed down somewhat. Begin your investigation by looking for obvious fraying, loose connections, breaks in insulation, etc. Use the techniques outlined at the beginning of this section. Electrical problems are almost always a real headache to solve, but if you are patient and persistent, and approach the problem logically (that is, don't start replacing electrical components randomly), you will eventually find the solution.
Each fuse block uses miniature fuses (normally plug-in blade terminal-type for these vehicles) which are designed for increased circuit protection and greater reliability. The compact plug-in or blade terminal design allows for fingertip removal and replacement.
Although most fuses are interchangeable in size, the amperage values are not. Should you install a fuse with too high a value, damaging current could be allowed to destroy the component you were attempting to protect by using a fuse in the first place. The plug-in type fuses have a volt number molded on them and are color coded for easy identification. Be sure to only replace a fuse with the proper amperage rated substitute.
A blown fuse can easily be checked by visual inspection or by continuity checking.
The fuse block is located on the lower left side of the instrument panel. To access the fuse panel, open the driver's side door. Pull off the fuse panel cover to get to the fuses. Spare fuses and a fuse puller should always be kept here. Various convenience connectors, which snap-lock into the fuse block, add to the serviceability of this unit.

  1. Locate the fuse for the circuit in question.

When replacing the fuse, always use a replacement fuse of the same amperage value. NEVER use one with a higher amperage rating.
  1. Check the fuse by pulling it from the fuse block and observing the element. If it is broken, install a replacement fuse the same amperage rating. If the fuse blows again, check the circuit for a short to ground or faulty device in the circuit protected by the fuse.
  2. Continuity can also be checked with the fuse installed in the fuse block with the use of a test light connected across the 2 test points on the end of the fuse. If the test light lights, replace the fuse. Check the circuit for a short to ground or faulty device in the circuit protected by the fuse

Ciggarette lighter doesnt work and cant find fuse if thats the problem


Remove the coin/change holder from the dash you will find the fuse box there. On the back of the coin holder you will find a fuse diagram showing location and amp # for each fuse. when replacing the fuse be sure to replace it with the same amp#. Should be a 15 amp fuse. First check/replace the fuse. If that doesn't work I would consider replacing the entire cigarette lighter it runs about 12$.
Thanks,
Lee
