Hello. Recheck your work. Make sure you have attached the cables to the battery properly and tightly, using the proper open end wrench. Positive is red cable, negative is black. Joe

I have a 96 Isuzu trooper. I ran errands all day and was fine. I pulled up to park and it shut off a little smoke came from under the hood not much I noticed the main fuse was blown. I replaced and...

Here is a "legible" copy of the circuitry you are having issues with.

Based upon what I see here, if any satellite circuit had caused the problem, the associated fuse FL-2, C-19, or C-20 would have blown before the main fuse. So we can rule those circuits out, That leaves the alternator as the problem. Disconnect the wire wire from the alternator and tie it back safely from the engine block or car body. Replace the fuse. If it does not blow, the alternator is bad. If it does blow, the wiring from the main fuse to the alternator or to one of the satellite fuses is grounded.

How to remove the steering wheel without deploying the airbag? I want to replace it with another one like it but customized and install the airbag back to it.

Disconect the battery completely both cables. let it sit disconected for a while 20-30 minutes. Or if you feel safe doing this which it is safe. Both cables removed from battery toch them together away from the power source. This will send any and all left over power stil in system straight to ground and you will be clear to remove steering wheel. Do what you have to doo and the very last thing is to hook up the battery negative cable last.

there should be a smaller fuse block with larger fuses. one should say either main or alt either way they are fuses that are larger and you can see through the top. if they do not come up easily, do not force it. some are attatched below with screws. the one you are looking for will probably come right out.

Not likely as a result of sitting too long, but there is a possibility that your radio went into theft mode when you cleaned the battery if you disconnected either of the terminals. The fuse for the radio is inside your car, likely in the fuse block on the end of the dash when you open your door. There should be a fuse block schematic either on the door removed to gain access to the fuse block, or in your Owner's Manual.

If it's a radio code issue you may need to consult with your VW Dealer. The radio, however, should power on and then provide you with some indication that the radio has gone into safe mode.

Have you replaced or removed the battery before this happened ? if so disconnect the battery and let it sit for a few minutes. Reconnect the battery and it should reprogram the computer system. I am not completely sure if your car has an instrument cluster fuse but check inside the hood and the fuse panel box.
