    if you flip the black cover of the box it will tell you what that particular fuse is for or you can find the explaination for it in your owners manual under fuses and circuit breakers

The 30 amp fuse is most likely for your starter. Check that the red thick wire (could be black as well) leading to the starter and starter solenoid is properly attached and is not touching anything that would short it out and therefore blow the 30 amp fuse. The short may even be inside the starter in which case it will need to be replaced or repaired. Hope this helps.

Which fuse in the fuse box belongs to headlights in 2002 Ford Escape?


The fuse box is beside the battery under the hood. The fuses and what they relate to is marked under the lid of that fuse box. Use same size fuse if it needs replacing. If in doubt check all the 15 to 30 amp fuses.

Jeep Transmission Fuse? What does it control? Under the hood fuse panel #5 fuse 20 amp


In some Jeeps the fuse controls the transmission control relay in the power distribution box. Replace the fuse. If it blows again, there could be a short in the power distribution box or the writing between the power box and the control module.

I can't get the vehicle information center in my 96 Jeep grand Cherokee to work no lights, warning, nothing, can't locate exact fuse but all looks good?


I would start with the Fuse Box under the hood. Start by pulling the Fuse's 1 at a TIME!! I have done it befor time & time agean. It's probley by the Battery. It's a black box that has " Main Fuse " or something alone that line. There just like the Fuses under the Dash, BUT BIGGER! They can be hard to tell if they blew. I have done it so, much that I know. If it's not that I would check the Fuse Box in the Dash. Jerry Dunn

Cooling fans wont come on with out the a/c


First check all your fuses in both the under hood (60 amp) and right rear (10 amp) fuse blocks. Remove the low speed fan relay (in the under hood fuse box) and install a jumper across terminals #30 & #87. These are not marked on the box, but you will find these numbers identifying these terminals. With power at the #30 terminal, installing the jumper wire will send power directly to the primary fan. The fan should now run, if it doesn't, check it's ground wire, if that's OK, replace the fan.

I can n ot find my heater fuse 97 jeep cherokee


I don't know on the Grand, but our Cherokee has a water valve right by
the firewall on the heater hose to control the heat. Not actually a fuse as it is heated by the coolant running from the engine, but apparently there was an issue with some s*&t heating systems. What is the actual problem you are having? as this 'fuse' may actually not exist.You may need to simply flush your radiator, replace the coolant after checking near the firewall for the valve that lets the hot water flow through, This may be the problem?
