Question about 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Is there a connector / hot point for the switched ignition circuit under the dash somewhere? On the passenger fuse box I see open little square holes near the battery run down relay but not sure it that is to be used or where to find a connector to plug into it. Need a switch power feed for some USB devices.

My reccomendation would be to get your power from the fuse box area. Wires near the ignition are harder to access.

Vw passat 1998 won't start on turnig key battery good


Check ignition switch. Connect a wire from battery positive to any ignition fed point on your fuse box and ignition should turn on. Start the car. If it starts replace ignition switch.

Mitsubishi diamante electronic door switch problem


the following checks need to be made.
All listed components are all share a fuse , and all share the same ground, G200.
Check the fuse/circuit breaker for power on both sides, if OK, follow the harness to connector C214 a 12 pin connector to the right of the glove box opening to see if there is a problem there.
Ground 200 is located on the toe plate at the front edge of the passenger's front door. Check for bad connection there.
If everything is good up to this point you will check The Black/White wire that runs through the main harness under the dash, and splits into several Black/White wires at splice S245, in the main wire harness under the driver side of the dash.

Lights, horn, radio,stop/taillights, domelight nad backup lights quit working.. all fuses good and alternator is fine


When you say "all fuses good" Does that mean the fuse panel on the passenger side end of dash...
and both power distribution boxes under the hood? They are attached to the fenders and you will have to remove the metal straps running over the covers to open them. Check power wire going to each box for tightness and 12 volts. If all the fuse's, relay's, and circuit breakers are good, you may have an issue with the "Body Control Module". You will find it under passenger side dash, behind the glove box. Might even be an issue with the ignition switch.

My doors will not lock by using the button and my windows wont roll down or up, everyone says its a fuse, cant find the problem or the fuse???


Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash.
Drivers door window switch gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. Actually, there may be a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

If all has failed, remove drivers door panel, or the switch may "pop out" of the arm rest. Check for voltage coming to the main window switch connector. If no voltage, problem lies somewhere between door and power source. If voltage is present, but no voltage(when pressing switch) at drivers door window motor means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.
You may also find that the connector has simply come loose from the master window control. Good luck!!

What does the code p1166 mean on my 2003 rsx type s


DTC P1166: A/F Sensor (Sensor 1) Heater Circuit Malfunction


  1. Reset the ECM/PCM.
  2. Start the engine.
Is DTC P1166 indicated?

YES - Go to step 3.

NO - Intermittent failure, system is OK at this time. Check for poor connections or loose wires at C101 (located under the right side of the dash), C401 (located under the left side of the dash), C402 (located under under the left side of the dash) the A/F Sensor relay, the A/F Sensor (Sensor 1) and the ECM/PCM.


  1. Check the following fuse:
    • No.14 OPTION (30A) fuse in under-hood fuse/relay box.
    • No.2+B LAF HEATER (20A) fuse in under-dash fuse/relay box.
    • No. 4ACG (10A) in under-dash fuse/relay box.
Are any of the fuses blown?

YES - Repair short in the wire between the A/F Sensor relay and the fuses.

NO - Go to step 4.

  1. Measure voltage between ECM/PCM connector terminals A1 and A24, 30 seconds after the ignition switch is turned ON (II).
Is there battery voltage?

YES - Update the ECM/PCM if it does not have the latest software, or substitute a known-good ECM/PCM, then recheck. If the symptom/indication goes away with a known-good ECM/PCM, replace the original ECM/PCM.

NO - Go to step 5.

94729648

  1. Measure voltage between ECM/PCM connector terminals A22 and A24.
Is there battery voltage?

YES - Go to step 6.

NO - Go to step 10.


  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect ECM/PCM connector E (31P).
  3. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

  1. Connect ECM/PCM connector terminal E8 to body ground with a jumper wire, then measure voltage between ECM/PCM connector terminals A1 and A24.
Is there battery voltage?

YES - Update the ECM/PCM if it does not have the latest software, or substitute a known-good ECM/PCM, then recheck. If the symptom/indication goes away with a known-good ECM/PCM, replace the original ECM/PCM.

NO - Repair open or short in the wire between the A/F Sensor (Sensor 1) and ECM/PCM (A1).


  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect the ECM/PCM connector A (31P) and the A/F Sensor (Sensor 1) 4P connector.
94729650

  1. Check for continuity between the A/F Sensor (Sensor 1) 4P connector terminal No.3 and body ground.
Is there continuity?

YES - Repair short in the wire between the A/F Sensor relay, A/F Sensor (Sensor 1) and ECM/PCM (A22).

NO - Go to step 13.


  1. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
94729651

  1. Measure voltage between ECM/PCM connector terminals E8 and A24.

I have a 2001 ford focus. The car shut off on it's own and it turns out I blew the 30A ignition fuse. When I replaced it, the car worked as normal for about 5 seconds before it blew again. Where should...


Wow! You just passed your first course in "Auto Repair 101". I don't have to explain it to you like I do 90% of the folks out there that think that a problem with their electrical circuit is caused by a fuse. I am constantly preaching that FUSES are NEVER the cause of a circuit failure. Blown fuses are ALWAYS the RESULT of a circuit failure. I tell them that the fuse is blown because it has given its life to keep your vehicle from burning to the ground. I go on to say that replacing that fuse without finding and correcting the condition that caused it to blow in the first place will only cause another fuse to have to give up its life to stop your car from toasting. In such cases, the first fuse will have died in vain. But you already figured that one out by yourself!
.
>>>>Let me see if I can help you....

Fuse #8 (Ignition), 30 Amp, located in the Battery Junction Box (under the hood) feeds the circuit which goes to Pin #5 (RED) in connector #13 at the Central Junction Box (Under left side of dash). Here, it provides the power source for the starter relay. It also branches off at this point and continues to the ignition switch. (A very likely place for your problem to be located)
.
From the ignition switch it returns to the Central Junction Box (CJB) via 5 separate circuits.
1. From Pin #7 on the ignition switch (Grey/Black) to Pin #4, Connector # 17 (CJB)
2. From Pin #6 on the ignition switch (Yellow) to Pin #6, Connector #17 (CJB)
3. From Pin #1 on the ignition switch (Green/Yellow) to Pin #1, Connector #13 (CJB)
4. From Pin #3 on the ignition switch (Black/White) to Pin #14, Connector #11 (CJB)
5. From Pin #5 on the ignition switch (Red/Black) to Pin #10, Connector #11 (CJB)

It also branches out from Pin #3 at the ignition switch and runs to Pin #2 in Connector #931 at the Gearshift Lever Unit.

At the Central Junction Box, it feeds several other (smaller) fused circuits. Your problem will not be beyond this point. (If it was, the smaller fuses would be blowing, not this one)

If there are any aftermarket accessories (i.e. Alarm, Remote Start, Stereo Amplifier, etc.) tied into any of these ignition circuits, I would try disconnecting them first, unless it is very obvious that there is something else wrong like a burned ignition switch connector.

The circuit from the Starter Relay to the Starter could also be the problem, but not very likely if the engine was running at the time that it blew.
