Your question about Cars & Trucks has been posted.Had a well water pump installed and now one side of the house power is not working could the pump cause something to be grounding out the circuit?


Possible, but not likely. Simple to check, really. Just open the circuit breaker in the main box for the well pump. Then reset the main house breaker. If power is still missing to one half the house, then most likely you have an issue with the supply lines coming in. If you have the ability, open the house main breaker and with a voltmeter, check the two lines coming in, first each to return, and then across the two. If it is a US household, each side should be 110-120vac to return and 220-240 VAC across the phases. My guess is you lost one phase coming into the house. If the power is bad into the top of the main, contact your power company to have them repair their input lines.

Windshield wipers stopped working


Check the wiper arm motor under the hood. Sometimes its the fuse, Check the circuit breaker for continuity across the terminals If an open circuit is indicated replace the circuit breaker. Also check between the circuit motor and the ground, and check the battery voltage with ignition on (don't start) if it test for voltage good and the motor still don't work its a faulty wiper motor. A used wiper motor will work as well as a new $$$$$$ one.Denton auto salvage 785-437-2223 test all their parts for working condition before shipping and have a 30 day return on them

My 2002 jetta the door didnt lock or unlock and windows dont work and alarm is off


I appologize for not getting back to you sooner. The market place is still in developement and for some reason this afternoon when I tried to comment I could not post from my android, Ipod, or Ipad.

The only thing the two have in common are fuse 38 and the power window circuit breaker. This would be a good place to start. The fuse will be obvious if it is blown. You will need to check continuity of the circuit breaker or swap it with one that you know is good.

If the fuse and circuit breaker are good than you will need a test light or multi-meter. You will also need to remove the drivers front door panel to gain access to the power window switch and the drivers front door module. If you have this test equipment and are able to get the door panel off let me know and we will go to the next step.

Power windows stopped working


If ALL the windows quit working, then it's either a bad circuit breaker or a short circuit. There are two fuse/relay/breaker panels: under the hood and under the back seat cushion. The power window circuit breaker is under the back seat cushion, near the battery. Remove the back seat completely, then remove the fuse panel top and inner cover. The fuse diagram is inside the top cover. Circuit breaker # 57 is the one. Pull it out. Use your voltmeter/multi-tester to check for continuity through the breaker. If there's no continuity, the breaker is bad and needs to be replaced. If it's good, then you have a dead short somewhere that causes the self-resetting breaker to uncouple when you attempt to operate a window. If so, the short will need to be traced down and repaired. Good luck.

99 GMC Suburban -- While driving engine cut


Does it tick then a bit later tick again? If so that's most likely an automatic circuit breaker that you hear. If you have a short in the wiring the circuit breaker kicks out (tick) and shuts that circuit down, after a minute or so the circuit breaker cools enough to reset itself (tick again). That would explain the truck shuting down. The circuit breaker will continue to reset itself until the battery goes dead, I would suggest disconnecting the battery until you can get it to a shop. You have a short in the wiring somewhere. Good Luck!

Where can I find the fuse box on my 1995 Jeep Wrangler


There are 2 fuse locations on your jeep.
  1. Fuse Block, located under the left side of the instrument panel
  2. Power Distribution Center, located int the engine compartment at the right fender side shield.
FUSE AND CIRCUIT BREAKER PRECAUTIONS
When replacing a blown fuse or defective circuit breaker, it is important to use only a fuse or circuit breaker having the correct amperage rating. The use of a fuse or circuit breaker with a rating other than indicated may result in a dangerous electrical system overload. If a properly rated fuse or circuit breaker continues to blow or trip, it indicates a problem in the circuit that must be corrected.

Before you begin to diagnose and test the stop light system (that's what's it's called in the service manual), you should look at the following
wiring diagram to try and understand how the system work. This will help you to logically walk through the diagnosis process.

TESTING FOR “OPENS” IN THE CIRCUIT

7c178f9.jpg

Continuity Check Method
The continuity check is used to find an open in the circuit. The
Digital Multimeter (DMM) set on the resistance function will indicate
an open circuit as over limit (no beep tone or no ohms symbol).
Make sure to always start with the DMM at the highest resistance
level.
To help in understanding the diagnosis of open circuits please refer
to the schematic above.
1) Disconnect the battery negative cable.
2) Start at one end of the circuit and work your way to the other
end. (At the fuse block in this example)
3) Connect one probe of the DMM to the fuse block terminal on
the load side.
4) Connect the other probe to the fuse block (power) side of SW1.
Little or no resistance will indicate that portion of the circuit has
good continuity. If there were an open in the circuit, the DMM
would indicate an over limit or infinite resistance condition.
(point A)
5) Connect the probes between SW1 and the relay. Little or no
resistance will indicate that portion of the circuit has good continuity.
If there were an open in the circuit, the DMM would
indicate an over limit or infinite resistance condition. (point B)
6) Connect the probes between the relay and the solenoid. Little
or no resistance will indicate that portion of the circuit has good
continuity. If there were an open in the circuit, the DMM would
indicate an over limit or infinite resistance condition. (point C)
Any circuit can be diagnosed using the approach in the above
example.

Voltage Check Method
To help in understanding the diagnosis of open circuits please refer
to the previous schematic.
In any powered circuit, an open can be found by methodically
checking the system for the presence of voltage. This is done by
switching the DMM to the voltage function.
1) Connect one probe of the DMM to a known good ground.
2) Begin probing at one end of the circuit and work your way to
the other end.
3) With SW1 open, probe at SW1 to check for voltage.
voltage; open is further down the circuit than SW1.
no voltage; open is between fuse block and SW1 (point A).
4) Close SW1 and probe at relay.
voltage; open is further down the circuit than the relay.
no voltage; open is between SW1 and relay (point B).
5) Close the relay and probe at the solenoid.
voltage; open is further down the circuit than the solenoid.
no voltage; open is between relay and solenoid (point C).
Any powered circuit can be diagnosed using the approach in the
above example.

TESTING FOR “SHORTS” IN THE CIRCUIT

To simplify the discussion of shorts in the system please refer to
the schematic below.
c2ba473.jpg

Resistance Check Method
1) Disconnect the battery negative cable and remove the blown
fuse.
2) Disconnect all loads (SW1 open, relay disconnected and solenoid
disconnected) powered through the fuse.
3) Connect one probe of the ohmmeter to the load side of the fuse
terminal. Connect the other probe to a known good ground.
4) With SW1 open, check for continuity.
continuity; short is between fuse terminal and SW1 (point A).
no continuity; short is further down the circuit than SW1.
5) Close SW1 and disconnect the relay. Put probes at the load
side of fuse terminal and a known good ground. Then, check
for continuity.
continuity; short is between SW1 and the relay (point B).
no continuity; short is further down the circuit than the relay.
6) Close SW1 and jump the relay contacts with jumper wire. Put
probes at the load side of fuse terminal and a known good
ground. Then, check for continuity.
continuity; short is between relay and solenoid (point C).
no continuity; check solenoid, retrace steps.

Voltage Check Method
1) Remove the blown fuse and disconnect all loads (i.e. SW1
open, relay disconnected and solenoid disconnected) powered
through the fuse.
2) Turn the ignition key to the ON or START position. Verify battery
voltage at the battery + side of the fuse terminal (one lead
on the battery + terminal side of the fuse block and one lead
on a known good ground).
3) With SW1 open and the DMM leads across both fuse
terminals, check for voltage.
voltage; short is between fuse block and SW1 (point A).
no voltage; short is further down the circuit than SW1.
4) With SW1 closed, relay and solenoid disconnected and the
DMM leads across both fuse terminals, check for voltage.
voltage; short is between SW1 and the relay (point B).

GROUND INSPECTION

Ground connections are very important to the proper operation of
electrical and electronic circuits. Ground connections are often
exposed to moisture, dirt and other corrosive elements. The corrosion
(rust) can become an unwanted resistance. This unwanted
resistance can change the way a circuit works.
Electronically controlled circuits are very sensitive to proper
grounding. A loose or corroded ground can drastically affect an
electronically controlled circuit. A poor or corroded ground can easily
affect the circuit. Even when the ground connection looks clean,
there can be a thin film of rust on the surface.
When inspecting a ground connection follow these rules:
1) Remove the ground bolt or screw.
2) Inspect all mating surfaces for tarnish, dirt, rust, etc.
3) Clean as required to assure good contact.
4) Reinstall bolt or screw securely.
5) Inspect for “add-on” accessories which may be interfering with
the ground circuit.
6) If several wires are crimped into one ground eyelet terminal,
check for proper crimps. Make sure all of the wires are clean,
securely fastened and providing a good ground path. If multiple
wires are cased in one eyelet make sure no ground wires have
excess wire insulation.

1994 town car rear windows will not open or close


Try checking the fuses and circuit breakers for the power windows first, if there good then it could be the the rear window lockout switch, check for continuity in the unlocked position. If it does'nt have continuity replce the switch.
