Hi Rudy

You will have to inspect the cigarette lighter closely, I suspect your son has bent the 2 terminals that make contact with the lighter, and this will continually giving you a dead short and blow your new fuse.
As for the other problem, your idea of shrink insulation sounds perfect.

Good Luck !

SOURCE: cigarrette lighter (front) in 2002 ford explorer - all fuses good. Key inside lighter caused a spark and it doesn't work.

Look in your manual for the Power Distribution Box reference in Roadside Emergencies, page 210. It should be located under the hood on the driver's side. My 2002 Explorer has two power points on the center console and the 20A fuses in the Power Distribution Box for them are number 7 and number 9. They cost $3.99 each at AutoZone. The cigar lighter fuse under the dash is unrelated.

SOURCE: how do i install a wiring harness for a trailer on

  • Loosen and pull back the carpeting in the back of the trunk behind the taillights.
  • Step 2 Remove the plastic wingnuts that secure the taillight to the vehicle's body.
  • Step 3 Separate the taillights from the vehicle's body, but do not disconnect the wiring.
    Installing the Connector
  • Step 1 Examine the wiring harness on each taillight. There will be a plastic connector on each side that must be separated to insert the wiring harness connector.
  • Step 2 Thread the trailer wiring connectors through holes in the body behind each taillight. Follow the instructions provided with the connector to determine which connector belongs in which side of the vehicle.
  • Step 3 Insert the wiring connectors into the vehicle's wiring harness.
    Reinstalling the Taillights
  • Step 1 Push the taillights into position against the body and reinstall the plastic wingnuts that secure them. Be careful not to crush the wiring.
  • Step 2 Route the trailer wiring underneath the carpeting in the trunk, so that the trailer connector can extend out between the trunk lid and bumper when in use, and be tucked into the trunk when not in use.
  • Step 3 Reposition the trunk carpet over the taillight housing.

    What relay under the rear seat in a 2007 chevy trailblazer run the rear lock and wiper motor?

    None < LGM - liftgate control module inside the lift gate does .
    Rear Wiper/Washer System Components
    The rear wiper/washer system consists of the following components:
    • Rear window wiper motor
    • Rear washer pump
    • Rear wash relay
    • Rear wiper/washer switch
    • RR WIPER Circuit Breaker 15A / ENDGLASS REG Circuit Breaker 30A
    • WASH 20A fuse
    • Body control module (BCM)
    • Liftgate control module (LGM) / End gate module (EGM)

    Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop. You have no idea of the complexity of these system's . Communication network between modules etc..... Could have DTC'S diagnostic trouble code's stored in the liftgate control module . An auto parts stores can not read these codes .

    Power Door Lock Operation
    The power door lock switches are integral components of the DDM and PDM. The switches are two position normally open rocker switches. When placed in either the lock or unlock positions, the switches provide a direct input to the DDM or PDM. The DDM or PDM monitors these inputs and sends a Class 2 message indicating a change in the switch's respective position. Modules which activate the power door lock motors receive the Class 2 message and activate the motor in the appropriate direction to lock or unlock the vehicle's doors and liftgate. The modules which activate the power lock motors are:
    • DDM (driver door lock actuator).
    • PDM (passenger front door lock actuator).
    • BCM (both rear door lock actuators).
    • LGM (liftgate door lock actuator).
    The DDM, PDM and LGM are directly connected to the respective door lock actuator through the door lock motor lock and unlock circuits. Once a door lock or unlock request has been received, the module will supply battery voltage to one side of the actuator and ground the other causing the doors to lock or unlock.

    Ford escape 2006 rear wiper innoperative

    Do you know how these wipers Work / what controls them ? Do you know what a smart junction box is ?
    Rear Window Wiper Operation
    The rear wiper motor is controlled by the SJB. The SJB supplies power to the rear wiper motor from the integrated rear wiper relay. The SJB will activate the relay when all of the following conditions are met:
    • Ignition switch is in the ON position
    • Liftgate glass and liftgate are closed
    • Multifunction switch is in the ON or INTERMITTENT position
    The SJB also supplies voltage to the rear wiper motor from SJB fuse 21 (10A) when the ignition switch is in the ON position. This power feed is used to continue the wipe cycle when the multifunction switch is turned to the OFF position. The SJB receives inputs from the multifunction switch that applies ground to the low speed wipe input or applies ground to the intermittent wipe input. When either of these circuits are grounded, the SJB activates the integrated rear wiper relay and power is supplied to the rear wiper motor to move the rear wiper motor from the PARK position. An internal switch in the rear wiper motor then moves to the RUN position which connects the accessory relay power to the rear wiper motor. When the rear wiper motor returns to the PARK position, the internal switch in the rear wiper motor moves back to the PARK position. If the multifunction switch is in the ON position, the rear wiper relay is still activated, power is supplied to the rear wiper motor, and the wipe cycle starts again. If the multifunction switch is in the INTERMITTENT position, the rear wiper relay does not activate until the predetermined dwell time has elapsed, at which time the SJB activates the rear wiper relay and the wipe cycle starts again.

    Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
    Smart Junction Box (SJB) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index DTC Description Source Action B1244 Wiper Rear Motor Run Relay Coil Circuit Failure SJB If the rear wiper is inoperative, Go To Pinpoint Test B .

    How to operate window wiper on back door

    lost the operators guide?
    the 2003 book is not on the jeep board now...

    pdf page 203

    Rear Window Wiper/Washer
    A rotary ring switch on the control lever, located on the
    right side of the steering column, controls operation of
    the rear wiper/washer function. Rotating the center of
    the switch up to the DEL (Delay) position or the ON
    position will activate the wiper. Rotating the switch ring
    beyond the ON or OFF position will activate the rear
    washer. The wash pump will continue to operate as long
    as the lever or ring is engaged. Upon release, the wipers
    will cycle three times before returning to the set position.

    Obviously the wiring between the two units is not the same. That's your problem. Check the wiring on the old door and compare it to the new door.

    How do I fix or replace the rear wiper motor


    1. Disconnect the cable running to the negative terminal on the car's battery. To do this, loosen the nut on the cable clamp until the clamp is loose enough for you to slide the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal.
    2. Pull the wiper arm away from the rear windshield until the wiper arm locks into a vertical or semi-vertical position or is perpendicular to the rear windshield.
    3. Remove the nut holding the wiper arm assembly to the rear wiper motor.
    4. Pull the wiper arm off the wiper motor assembly.
    5. Unplug the rear wiper motor plug/harness.
    6. Remove the screws holding the rear wiper motor to the inside of the vehicle at the base of the rear window.
    7. Pull the rear wiper motor off.
    8. Install the new wiper motor and put the wiper motor and arm assembly back on the vehicle by reversing the completed steps.

    I hope this helps

    Van will not start. Can hear fuel pump but nothing else.

    First thing check the fuses! Turn the key to the on 'run' position and check both sides of every fuse with a test light, or pull them out one by one, but test light is easier! If all is fine check for power on the starter main terminal (power will be constant when in any key position), then check for power on other terminal when in start position! If both powers are present then you will need a new starter!

    Wiper was pushed down from the parked position

    you will need a flat screwdriver about 5/16 or 3/8's wide. to pry your wiper blade off. pull back on your wiper arm while prying with your screwdriver. work on both sides of your wiper blade, you will notice it starting to come off a bit at a time. just keep working it till it falls off.... good luck sawdust46

    From the back of the front door slide your hand in the sliding door crack and find the child-safety-lever. Push the lever up and/or down while moving the sliding door manual lock/unlock button to the up position. Also works on the non-powered sliding door.

    The Rear Wipers on my 2001 1500 Chevy Suburban Stopped working

    Unplug the connector at the rear wiper motor, turn the switch on and probe the wires with a test lamp, if you have power back there you more than likely have a bad motor. If there is no power start checking fuses they are all labeled easily on the back side of the fuseblock covers both on the dash and underhood. Good Luck!!!
