    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.

2000 JIMMY 4.3 WONT START AND KEEP BLOWING MAIN 40AMP FUSESE


What all does that fused supply B+ voltage too ? Do you know ? That would be your first thing to find out ! Do you know what a electrical distribution diagram is ? Do you know how to test electrical circuits with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? Do you know what a short to ground is ?
Which fuse ? IGN A - 40 amp ,under hood fuse / relay box ? This fuse powers the Starter Relay and Ignition and Start Switch
Does your vehicle have a manual or automatic transmission ? The starter relay could be shorted inside , It's also located in the under hood fuse box . If you pull the relay out of the box it's plugged into an look on the bottom of it you would see four sets of numbers ! 30 & 87 an 85 & 86 . If you were to jump 30 to 87 in the relay box the starter should spin the engine over , not start an run just spin ! 85 & 86 is the control side . Could be the ignition switch !
That 40amp fuse powers a lot of subsystems !

Here is a web site for free diagrams !
http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine , Under system click on electrical distribution , under sub system click on power distribution . Then click the search button .Click blue links one at a time . First blue link scroll down to the second diagram . You will see Ign A 40 amp fuse at the top of the page .you will also see it powers the igintion switch ,look at last part of ignition switch , when in start or run that 40 amp fuse powers all those other fuse's plus three relays i see there also . A/C compressor relay , rear window defroster relay ,daytime running lights . Any one of those circuits could have your short . You need to isolate the circuits , pull fuse's till the fuse doesn't blow !

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.

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?
