If the manual fails to include or mention certain items for a problem, it would be best to go to the fuse boxes. Normally a blown fuse is caused by a short after the main fuse. So this means you may will have to check the fuses individually. The fuses are normally located under the dash on the driver side. The cover would have its own labels for you to identify which fuse are found inside the box.

Did you check the fuses and relays in the black fuse box under your hood? if not, you need to open that box and check for blown fuses and bad relays. you'll find that box under hood on drivers side on the fenderwell.

I bought a 96 jeep cherokee sport & the interior lights only come on for the front passenger door. the three other doors & the hatch dont turn on the interior lights & i cant find any fuse box...


Can you turn on the lights with the Interior light switch?. If a light works, obviously the fuse is good. You will need a wiring diagram and a test light to figure out where to start.

2001 toyota sienna power mirror/ clock not working? icouldn't find the fuse. Please help me


There is an interior fuse panel located on the left side of the steering column, behind the "change compartment". You just pull it out and you will see a fuse diagram on the back. The fuse you want to replace is the fuse for the cigarette lighter, it is a 15 amp fuse and is located on the bottom right.

As far as I can tell, the owner manual makes no mention of this interior fuse panel and furthermore the actual fuse for the cigarrette lighter doesn't mention that it is connected to the clock and the power mirror.

Radio, clock and interior lights don't work. all fuses are good.


For all those who have a situation where the interior courtesy lamps and radio don't work in a ford contour: After dozens of uncomfortable minutes checking fuses under the hood and under the dash I realized the problem wasn't the fuzes but instead it was the courtesy lamp relay in my 2000 ford contour. A $6 part from O' Reilly's (R6026 or V09174) and voila! Interior lights are on and I can finally get that Disturbed disk out of the CD player. It was real fun contorting my body into positions not intended for any human to access the fuse panel under the dash (just above where your left leg would be when driving). Best of luck to all. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.

1998 Ford Contour Light on and mega-fuse


well if the ohm's are showing OK, then you may actually have a more serious problem, it is never good that the voltage light is on or stays on.

my suggestion is to take it up to autozone and tell them you want a trouble code done.

This is free and it will tell you exactly what is wrong....

98 Ford Contour not charging


I dont know if yours is a 4 or 6 cyl. On the back of the motor by the firewall there is a 175 amp mega fuse inline on the positive cable comming from the battery. On the 4 cyl it is below the air box center of the back of the motor. On the 6 cyl, it is below the coil pack on the center back of the motor. Be sure to disconnect the negitave battery cable before you attempt this. There is a 3 inch long cover you pop off and you will see it. It takes a 10mm socket to unbolt it. Remove the fuse and ohm it out, if there is no continuity, you have a bad fuse, replace it. I have had 3 people replace their bats and alts ($350 in parts) just to find out it still had the problem. An $8 fuse. Good luck and hope this helps..
