My 97 Cherokee blows fuse #11

The fuse is listed as auto shutdown relay (oxygen sensor). It blows it everytime the car is running. What can be causing this? Also my Check engine light is on along with the car running rich.

2007 ford freestar will fuse # 40 in the underhood fuse panel when the key is turned to the run/start position. It would blow before when it was running and cause vehicle not to shift. Had the transmission...

Any applicable trouble codes? Several systems get voltage off that same fuse. oxygen sensors-- canister purge solenoid--ac compressor relay--imrc, intake manifold runner control, has to do with induction-- breathing. And tranny control.
If it blows as soon as the key is turned on, maybe you can narrow it down by unplugging each system one at a time? That may not be conclusive, any system you unplug, there will be less amp draw on the fuse. Just a thought.

30amp auto shutdown fuse blows is it alternater

The ASD relay supplies battery voltage (12+ volts) to the fuel injectors and ignition coil(s). With certain emissions packages it also supplies 12-volts to the oxygen sensor heating elements. The Fuel Pump Relay is a separate relay controlled by the ASD relay input to the PCM. Fuse #12 (10amp) provides 12 volts to the coil side of both the relays and the ignition switch. Fuse #6 (30 amps) supplies 12 volts to the output side of the relay. Fuse #16 (15 amp) from the relay output to the Oxygen Sensors and Fuse #26 (15 amp) relay output to the PCM. Fuse #24 (20 amp) is Fuel pump relay output to fuel pump. Fuse #19 (10 amp) supplies 12 volts direct to the PCM.
look for burned or melted wires in the offending circuit.
sounds like you wiggled a wire while installing new relay.

Check engine light on- auto zone scanner shows error code p0053 probable cause: 1.-check circuit fuse 2.-relay defective 3.-check circuit wiring Where are fuse and relay located?

The code P0053 is for your Bank 1 Oxygen Sensor, the closest Oxygen Sensor to the engine, connected to the Exhaust. Replace your Oxygen Sensor, clear the code, and see if it comes back.

Where is the fuel shut off on a 1995 grand cherorke larado

You don't have one. The pump runs from the relay in the power distribution center (Box near the battery with relays and fuses)and gets it's signal from the computer that is reacting to information it gets from the crank sensor and other sensors. If the computer sees no signal from the crank sensor it turns everything off by way of the auto shutdown relay (also in the distribution center)

No spark and no gas now what


If you have no spark and no fuel pump operation,I would strongly suspect the Auto Shut Down relay.
The Auto Shut Down (ASD) Relay supplies power to the ignition coil, fuel injector, electric fuel pump, and the oxygen sensor heater element as long as the key is in the START or RUN position and the Single Module Engine Controller (SMEC) is receiving a reference signal from the distributor.
If the SMEC receives no distributor reference signal for two seconds or more the SMEC interrupts power to the ignition coil, fuel injectors, electric fuel pump, and the oxygen sensor heater element by removing the ASD relay ground.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

97 jeep cherokee blows fuse #11

I think fuse 11 is transmission control module, powertrain control module, automatic shutdown relay, fuel pump relay.. most likely it could be an issue with the wirings from the tranny. Check this one out before opening the conduit

Jeep keeps blowing auto shutdown fuse

Yes I had the same problem. The wires that plug into the sensor at the catatytic converter were rubbing against the drive shaft untill they finally wore through causing the short against drive shaft. repaired wires and it fixed everything
