Question about 2000 Nissan Xterra
I had an auto part store put in my new battery backwards. That caused several fuses to blow even the fuse that starts the car. I replaced all those, but when I try to put the radio fuse in located under the hood it blows before I get it into the fuse holder.
I have no idea what to do. I called around to audio stores and they are telling me that my radio is blow or shorted out...seems the fuse wouldn't blow if that was the case. Any suggestions on what I should look at?
Any time a battery is hooked up backwards anything that contains diodes will have to be replaced.unplug the radio and see if you can put the fuse in without it blowing.when you get the vehicle going have the alternator tested,it also has diode in it.good luck.
