Intermittent lock working, interior light, air conditioner, windows not working


Start with windows. If none work at any switch, check the circuit break. Swap it with another. After that it could be the master switch on the drivers door or a broken wire between the door and body in the rubber boot at the front of the door. Air conditioning. could be low freon, high pressure switch or compressor. Controllers rarely go bad. Check fuses first. Lights. Again fuses first, Then open another door. If the lights come on, Replace the door latch in the drivers door. If not, it could be the dimmer/head light switch, Usually in the dash. Or the BCM or wiring to it is bad. all this takes a volt/ohm meter to check.

My ford kuga has no electrics and will not start nor does the central locking system work !! Have you any idea why?


First check the battery voltage with a multi meter the voltage should be around 12.53 v if it is lower then 12v the cars Bsi unit wont wake as the Canbus electronic system is power hungry.

If the Battery voltage is correct then check the main fuses under the engine compartment and then check the interior fuses for a possible blown fuse. As the main system function are not working then the cause will most certainly be a blown higher amp fuse 30 amp / 60 amp which protects the starting and charging circuits.

I have 2002 dodge Dakota I sparked the battery and now the headlights taillights cargo and dome and dash lights don't work I replaced headlights switch checked fuses and replaced computer idk what to do...


Check these fuses again:
In the Power Distribution Center (in the engine compartment, left fender panel) Fuse #3 (20 Amp) Fuse #7 (40 Amp), Fuse #12 (20 Amp) and in the Junction Block (on the left end of the dash) Fuse #1 (15 Amp)
Use a test lamp and make sure that these fuses have power. All of these fuses should all have power at all times, regardless of ignition switch position. If they are all good and have power, then you probably need to replace your Central Timer Module. All of the circuits you listed are dependant on this module for operation.

The Central Timer Module is located at the left kick panel.

Central Timer Module System

The CTM is available in a BASE or a HIGHLINE configuration. The BASE and HIGHLINE CTM provide the following features:
• Battery saver functions for exterior and interior lights

• Fog lamps

• Intermittent wiper controls
• Low and high beam head lamps
• Optical horn
• Park lamps

In addition, the HIGHLINE CTM provides the following features:

• Central locking
• Door lock inhibit
• Driver door unlock
• Enhanced accident response
• Horn chirp
• Optical chirp
• Power door locks
• Remote keyless entry (VTSS)

5 amp problem causing battery to die out....had diagnosic done..no problem new battery, alternator good and starter good...but still showing a 5 amp draw.....tested all interior exterior lights good...no...


The easiest way to isolate a draw is by pulling fuses one at a time. When the draw goes away you can research the circuit that the fuse supplies power to.

Interior wiring in drivers door. Radio, mirror lights, dome light on console, trunk light, power door locks and electric mirror switches don't seem to work. I suspect a fuse, #4 20 amp. under the hood and...


do you have an aftermarket stereo? if you do, unplug it and see how long the fuses last. check your lighter and make sure there are no foreing object in there that can cause a short. when you replace the fuses, take notice of which action causes the fuses to blow... for example, door lock unlock, are they still ok, door lock, lock..check again, mirror left, still ok, so forth and so on. take it one at a time and see which action causes them to blow. when they blow do it again to see if the same action that caused them to blow the first time did it again, then trace those wires. you probably have a bad relay somewhere.

2004 dodge neon fuse problem.


yes thats possible, because sometimes like you've explainde some items are on the same fuse, but some items are on the same ground, thus causing something else to appear faulty. so its possible that all of these items are on the same ground and because a fuse or relay for the a/c is faulty, it may cause something else like the dome light and door locks not to work , very crazy with these newer cars.
