No fuse as it direct connected to the ECM
if the car is a nissan it is necessary to use a screw driver to set the ECM to get readings
take it somewhere else to get the fault codes read

There are fusible links next the battery on a heavy wire . They are either a woven insulated wire or ceramic fuse holders. One of these fuses may be blown

Hello! Cigarette lighter does not work!

its probably a blown fuse or the heating element on thr lighter went bad. you can go to any auto parts store and buy a new element. check for power, probe center of socket with a voltage tester, and ground the other end to the lighter caseing. if power the light on tester will light up. if power, element is toast.

The battery went dead when we left the lights on. Since then we have to put our radio code in every time we restart and the clock has to be reset. What can I do. Did not have this issue until the battery...

Have your battery tested. Have you had to jump start it each time? Whenever battery voltage goes low, it will require you to re enter that code. It could be that you have a weak battery, and during start up the voltage is going low enough to cut off keep alive memory in to your sound system. Again have the battery tested with a midtronics tester, or with a good quality carbon pile tester. GO TO A REPUTABLE GARAGE. Don't get the free test at auto zone. Those morons cause more harm than good. Most garages, at least around here (Green Bay) will test it for free, just because we might get to sell a battery, and actually make a buck in this crazy business! Good Luck

My car is fine when i jump it. but if i shut it off and turn it on SOMETIMES it will be dead. i went to autozone when it started and had it checked and the check said everything was good but i continue to...

It sounds like you need to take your battery terminals off and clean your posts and terminals.Sometimes the simplest things can stop you in your tracks. The Autozone should have been able to tell you what the code meant. If your battery is going dead but your alternator and battery are good. Carefully check your fuses . not the regular ones , the block fuses . You could have an alternator fuse that is blown. Even though everything is working the juice just is not getting to the battery. The charge light on the dash may not tell you if the fuse is blown.

Is it possible that there is leak that could be causing a short circuit? Possibly behind the fuse box? Just an idea, good luck.
