1995 GMC suburban keeps blowing the 40 amp maxi fuse

Most likely the switch has died. They over heat and melt inside and at the plug. Also look at the ignition wires under the dash, Sometimes they can chaff against the column or frame.

1997 Cherokee fuses under hood

No diagrams? I'm working on a '95 cherokee, the cover on the box has a complete diagram on the underside. On the '95, there are 10 maxi-fuses, and 6 mini-fuses. What is the number designation of the fuse? Likely the numbers may not agree with mine, but I could try to help. By the way, if you have your owner's manual, it would show all fuse and relay descriptions and locations, both the under hood box and the under dash fuse block.

Have a 1997 olds silhouette. Replaced alternator and got a rebuilt one after batt light and subsequent abs and tcs light came on and van stopped running. new alternator seemed fine for four days. abs and...

1. Check the negative terminal where it is grounded on the chassi (frame) or block. Clean and secure connection. Also, look for an additional ground that my be connected from the hood to the rear fire wall. These are usually found on the passenger side; if none are found, get some wire and run it from the hood to the rear fire wall, or side fire wall on either side of the engine compartment.
2. If the car can be jump started: the alternator tests good, the battery tests good - start looking for blown fuses - replace any that are bad. Also, replace the starter relay as it may be shorting out and be bad. This can be found under the hood in the fuse/relay box usually placed near the battery (just behind battery).
3. I also suggest having a technician perform a diagnostics test done before any other parts are replaced (except ground from hood to firewall). This will help diagnose a more accurate issue as why this is happening, and will save you time and money from replacing random parts. Have them test the ECM {electic control module) or "brain/computer".
Please let me know if you need further assitance.

Loking for fuse box/relays diagram for 1994 Olds 88 Royale

Fuses (located on a swing down unit near the steering column or in the glove box) 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.

I suggest check your 1994-Oldsmobile-Eighty-Eight-Owners-Manual for descriptions (page 223 and next).

Hope this help..

Heater does not blow out any air

There is a fuse panel under the dash on the driver's side and the maxi-fuse box is under the hood on the driver's side. If the fuses are good, it is probably the blower fan which is located under the dash on the passenger's side. (Behind the glove box.)

2003 Ford ZX2 Wont Fire

Check all the large main fuses, one of these usually burns out in a reverse jump, that is most likely the problem. The fuse you need to check is fuse 1 and fuse 7 (both are maxi 40 AMP) in the the under the hood fuse box, also check fuse 9, this is the computer fuse, it is under the hood also.
