Question about 2001 Nissan Maxima

2 Answers

I was changing one of the dome lights in my 2001 maxima. I touched metal to metal and blew a fuse. I found a blown fuse under the dash in the fuse box. It was replaced and still no interior lights.. ( All the other lights work) Is there another fuse I might of blown? Any help before I take the car to the dealer to fix would be great. Thanks.

    Why would you even think of going to a dealer? Do you have extra money to spend??

Useful for basic troubleshooting of this kind is a low-cost digital multimeter; they are simple to use and come with some Chinglish instructions that are clear enough for even a novice.
You can buy these for under $20 US at auto parts stores or electronic outlets similar to Radio Shack. Don't let them sell you a 'better' meter unless you have some background in electronics so you can use any extra features or increased accuracy.

Check to see that if there is power at the dome light first if the bulb was installed when you grounded out then the bulb may also be bad

1998 Jeep Laredo continuous clicking sound passenger side under dash it runs battery down ignition is off continuous clicking please help thank you


A number of people in the link report the same problem on the Jeep Forum and there are a number of fixes.

I also found this for you.

The problem seems to be a short in one of the rear dome lights, which seems to be affecting two fuse circuits. The temporary solution was to remove one fuse and replace another (blown), and remove the bulb from the bad dome light. I had to remove "fuze#5-15 amps-Interior Lighting", this stopped the clicking noise, I replaced blown fuze#8-15 amp-Overhead Console, keyless Entry ..." This fuse also seems to effect the alarm system (contrary to the documentation), and I think that was what was killing the engine. The problem existed before fuse#8 blew. Removing fuse#5 may have solved the problem, but the other fuse blew while I was testing the dome lights, and the jeep will not start without it.

Found lots of wires bare or broken in all the door wiring harnesses ( in rubber boot that goes to the door)I first checked both fuse 5 and 8 but both o.k. After fixing the broken wires found fuse 8 had blown. Replaced that and all is well again. Thanks for the advise got me looking in the right direction.

. Fuse box located in passenger side door jam...check #8 fuse if its not blown check others...if it is blown, check your radio, and interior lights for good ground

No power to sterio, over head dome lights, or Dash lights.


I think there should be another fuse for the dash lights and radio and dome (or interior or courtesy it may be designated). Recheck all of those fuses under the dash, I believe one has blown out. This is when a wiring diagram comes in handy-you can see the fuse lay-out, and what circuits each one serves.

I accidentally got the negative and positive leads crossed while changing the battery on a 2000 Kia Sportage and it blew the main power fuse block. I replaced the fuze block and got power for all the...


Most have a fuse block under the hood and one under or at the driver side of the dash....It probably wont be in plain sight without removing a plastic shield...check owners manual for the location.They seem to always put them in a good hidden place away from any danger to the fuses.If you dont have a owners manual I would call kia dealer and ask for location.

Your courtesy fuse is blown. Look under the hood fusebox. There should be a fuse labeled CTSY (10amp). If blown, you have a hot wire touching bare metal.

Just recently my 98 Toyota Corrolla has started blowing a fuse.


I would remove the dome light, and disconnect the wiring connector, and then put in another fuse. If it does not blow, I would think that the dome light switch is shorted to ground.

Keep blowning fuses, dont have fuse box cover to tell me which one it is?


The problem might be that you might have a short somewhere. Check in the engine bay for a loose wire which might be touching the engine or metal surface. Check behind the dash take the dash covers off and check for loose wiring. Check under the truck for loose wiring exposed wire touching the frame. I had the same problem the fuse blew for the brake light constantly till a friend of mine suggested to check for a loose wire which I did find. The wire for the a/c in the engine compartment came appart from the plug and it was touching the engine and it shorted out the electrical parts. I taped it up and no more blown fuses.
