2000 Camry 4 cylinder 2.2.Power windows fuse keeps blowing and speedometer keeps going out

Blown fuses usually caused by a power wire shorted to ground. Has the vehicle been in an accident ? Check the wiring that runs along the door frame, by the hinges. Harness runs inside a rubber boot and wires tend to break in this area.

2001 jeep grand cherokee v8 all wheel drive.what do these codes mean? code p0352,p0353,p0354,p0326,p0327,p0328

codes p 0352--353--354 all refer to ignition coils B, C, D--circuit malfunction=== causes --wiring---ignition coil --ECM
codes P0326, 327 ,328 all refer to knock sensor 1, bank 1 range / performance , for 326, --low input for 037 and high input for 0328=== causes --wiring---knock sensor(KS)incorrectly tightened --0326, insecure KS , poor connection, wiring short to ground , incorrectly tightened---ECM and for 0328--wiring short to positive --KS incorrectly tightened---ECM
It seems strange that all these codes appear and unless you have done work on the engine previously to these codes appearing, I would first replace the ECM with a known good unit, remove the codes then run the vehicle again for 15 minutes to see if the codes reappear

No hazard lights and no turn signals but every thing else works, HELP? I had a push button start installed the wire is connected into the blue fuse on the side wall just behind the battery, related?

the signals work off of the hazard flasher. the hazards are wired to constant power.if you run a fused wire from the hazard switch to the battery it all should work.
somehow the hazard power source got lost.check that there is not a blown fuse in the fuse box. a starter solenoid draws a good amount of current.they may have blown a small amp fuse looking for a power source.
patching into a fuse box for power is not high caliber work.

1990 Plymouth laser. Where is starter relay located? I've already looked under radio panel where books say but not there.

Fuses There are a number of fuse blocks on these vehicles. The multi-purpose fuse block is located inside the passenger compartment of the vehicle, under the instrument panel, towards the left of the steering column. The dedicated fuses are located in the engine compartment at the left rear corner (if equipped with A/C) and also in front of the right strut tower. Blade type fuses are used. A blade type fuse has test taps provided to allow checking of the fuse itself, without removing it from the fuse block. A test light can be used. The fuse is okay if the test light comes ON when its one test lead is connected to the test taps (one at a time) and the other lead is grounded. Change the position of the ignition switch so the fuse circuit being tested has voltage applied to it. Fig. 1: A test light can be used to test the fuse 89576g47.gif
When a fuse is blown, there are two probable causes as follows: One is that the fuse was blown due to a flow of current exceeding its rating. The other is that it is blown due to a repeated ON/OFF current flowing through it. Which of the two causes is responsible can be easily determined by a visual check as described below:
  1. Fuse blown due to current exceeding rating: As seen in the illustration, a fuse that is blown due to an exceeding current has a section missing. If the blown fuse looks like this, do not replace the fuse with a new one hastily since a current heavy enough to blow the fuse had flowed through it. First, check the circuit for shorting and check for abnormal electrical parts. Only after the correction of such a shorting condition, the fuse is to be replaced with one of the same capacity. Never use a fuse of a larger capacity than the one blown. If such a fuse is used, electrical components or wiring can be damaged before the fuse blows in the event that an overcurrent occurs again. Fig. 2: View of a fuse blown due to overcurrent 89576g48.gif
    Fig. 3: State of a fuse blown due to thermal fatigue 89576g49.gif

  2. Fuse blown due to repeated current ON/OFF flow: The figure shows a fuse blown due to repeated current ON/OFF. Normally, this type of problem occurs after fairly long period of use and hence is less frequent than the above type. In this case, you may simply replace the fuse with a new fuse of the same capacity. Fig. 4: The lid on the fuse block in the engine compartment has the identification information 89576p40.jpg
    Fig. 5: Remove the fuse panel lid by unfastening the clips and pulling it up and off the panel 89576p02.jpg
    Fig. 6: Pull the suspect fuse up and out of its receptacle and check the element 89576p03.jpg

2000 ford explorer wiper fluid pump does not work,

the fuse is located in the inside fuse panel position 12. it is a 7.5 amp fuse and is brown in color. if you cant find the position #12 then check all 7.5 fuses.if no fuse is blown then open the hood and get someone toactivate the washer pump while you lisen for it to run.the pump is located in the bottom of the washer fluid resavor and is usually replaced with the resavor as a assembley.if no blown fuse and u cant hear the pump running then you will need a new pump.if u hear pump running but no fluid is coming out look for a leak in the lines.

Fuel pump

You need to check all related fuses and relays. Your car is old enough for me to be comfortable saying that should be the problem. Fuses can be checked fairly easily, your fuse box should say which fuses are which. Though I've had cars where the instructions were long gone. In that case, I'd by a Haynes manual; they're handy anyway. Once you've found the correct fuses, check to see if they are blown. The piece of metal that runs through them should be solid; if it is broken or the plastic has a smokey appearance it is probably blown and needs to be replaced. If that is not the problem, use the Haynes manual to locate the relays. These are harder to check since they aren't like fuses, you cant look at them and tell. You can check their supply to see if they are getting power. If it is, then it is probably bad and in need of replacement.
