    the fuse boxs i found on the 1988 cargo toyota van was one under the dash and second one under the passenger seat, yet I did not find the main 80 Amp fuse!

  • mikeels Jul 17, 2009

    My 88 cargo Toyota Van has no fuse block on or next to the battery like other Toyota; I need some one that knows where the main fuse located?

  • mikeels Jul 19, 2009

    The main fuse was shorted the van lost all power, usually the main fuse block located next to the + battery cable on most Toyota cars, not this Van!

    I only located the usual fuse block under the Dash, and second Fuse block above the power steering filling tank behind the passenger seat that block has 40 and 60 Amp fuses but not the 80 Amp fuse I got from Mike Millers Toyota.

    Mechanics at the dealer said look under driver seat, I did with no luck.

    I was able to start the engine by connecting battery current to the Hot wire box + under the driver seat, the dash light remains dark.

    The van has front and rear A/C.

    this is all the clues I can give now.

    I will keep looking.

    thank you

    Thank you for your advise, I did followed battery wires and I found fusible wire link in flat thin connector box clipped on the front of the battery cage, it was very hard to see, beside I was looking for the 80 Amp fuse that I got from Mike Millers Toyota parts that throw me of looking in that area.(they gave me the wrong fuse).

    Now I got the van started but the warning lights stayed ON, Oil, Brakes, Charge, and Rad,

    I Checked the charge on the battery it was OK and the engine ran quit, I wonder I f I disconnected something while looking for the fuse?

    If you know where to look please let me know.



    Thank you again

    Hi

    Thank you for your good Analise's I found fusible wire in flat box attached to the front of the battery cage, I fixed it and started the van OK but all red warning lights (OIL, BRAKES CHARGE, RAD) stayed ON with the engine ruining. I checked the battery charging was OK, I must disconnected something while working.

    please give me a hint where to look.

Most auto electrical systems don't have a 'main' fuse. Start at the battery and follow the main wire form the Positive post on the battery. The big one is the starter, don't worry about that one. Follow the other 'main wire' and you should find a fuse or the problem. Do you have a meter that you could check the other fuses in the fuse panel?

    Not sure where else to look...just keep checking all connectors and fuses. Look for anything weird or not right.Maybe a wire that is discolored from heat. You'll get it! Give connections the 'tug test' (pulling on them to see if they're tight in the connector or terminal).

    please give me a rating.....

The fuse that you saw under the dash, was it the one at the passenger side close to the center console? I think that is the location of the other fuse. I hope that you saw a different one. Other than that there are no other fuse than the one you indicated that I can recall.

The main fuse is located in the fuse block. Its usually not out in the open. Inspect for a removeable cover on the side where the big battery positve cable comes in.

I believe that the 80 amp main fuse is located in a plastic box at the battery. I believe that you're supposed to pry the plastic box apart to get access to the ends and then snap it back together. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Jump started battery wrong


I'd buy a packet of assorted fuses in different ratings and then try the main suspects for a blown fuse, by replacing one after another.

You don't say how wrong the jump-start connection was, but the task may be difficult. In addition to any fuse to some component that was switched on at the time, in one of several fuse blocks, there may be damage to the alternator, voltage regulator, or even the main ECU.

You may be forced to an auto electrician. Pick one familiar with your model, as he will have seen the problem before.

BATTERY short circuit


I do not really understand the question. Did you jump start the car backwards?

When that happens, usually it blows the "main fuse." It is usually white or black ( 80 - 120A). To replace it on most Mazda's you have to partially disassemble the under hood fuse box to remove the 2 bolts holding it into the car, but this is just pure speculation

My 1990 mercury grand marquis was boosted wrong


Might need to check the main circuits for a blown fuse or fuseable link.
There is a fuse wire between the alternator and battery.

No power in part of fuse box under the hood and inside the van checked all the fuses and some have power some dont van quite going down the highway checked lots of conections a fuse terminal this has got...


There is a master fuse link near the battery Maxi fuses. one of them can be blown or someone took one out to fix something else. They don't blown unless the van has been in an accident the smallerfuses blow instead. You didn't state the year as oldest ones still had the old fuse wires on the battery cable where it hooks to the starter. Older vans have 3 back in the days of carboraters. Headlights all the rest and airconditioner heater. After the fuses mains are known good the ingtion switch can be bad. Dropping the collum to get access to the wires on the ingtion switch the test light will show three wires hot with the key on or a fuseable link is bad and with the key on they'll all be hot except the start wire that comes hot in start and the heater wires will go cold. all hot with the key in run or the switch is bad jumping power to a (dead fuse) may find a dead short then each dead fuse need removed add power and plug one at a time in to find the bad boy and run him out of the school with follow the wire till the pince or added haphazard repairman's wrong guess is removed. It's hard work but someone has to do it. Good luk

No engine start or any windo raido head lights nothing


Couple of things could be wrong. I would first try to have someone jump start your car, if it stays on, probably your battery, if it does not stay on, probably your alternator. Batteries you can get just about anywhere, just bring in your old one when you make your purchase to make sure its the correct one. Alternators can run you $90 - $150 depending on engine size, new or remfurbished. Check with your local auto parts store. Also, check your fuses (under the hood and inside) and make sure your battery terminals / clamps are clean. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
