Have a 05 dodge 1500 the 4x4 switch an overhead console leds quit working an keeps blowing the fuse as soon as i put it in


Odd that your vehicle runs both systems on the same circuit and with only a 10 amp fuse. I'd try a 20 amp fuse to see if that works. Worth a shot, it shouldn't harm anything.

Blows heater fuse when trying to engaging 4 wheel high. Plus no drive lights lighting up on shifted panel on floor when in 2 or 4 wheel drive


Check connections and the switch on the 4X4, it obviously is powered by the heater fuse and nothing will work if the fuses are blowing cutting power to the whole system

I have a 93 gmc sierra 1500 4x4 every time i engage it into 4x4 it blows the 4x4 fuse


Try unplugging the front axle actuator (at the front differential). If the fuse stops blowing, you have a short inside the actuator.

My atc fuse would keep blowing I put a bigger fuse it didn't blow that but I herd a zap noise from my TCCM now my 4x4 won't work 1999 jimmy


What you have done? You Just damage the TCCM and that's why you will not manage to shift 4x4. Why this happened? Because you had shortage somewhere and you receive blown ATC fuse.You put a bigger fuse in capacity where the was stronger to blown and the fault moved to the tccm system which was not protected and blown.Ask for an expert to check and see whether the fault is easy to get fixed.

Fuses kept blowing on 4x4 on 1997 chevy s-10. replaced transfer case motor, sensor and switch on dash. still no 4x4. leaking hose found and still no 4x4. now a/c and heat come out defrost vent. can...


No this is not a related problem.
To find what is blowing fuse out need to use ohm meter see which side short is on at fuse then trace to find short to ground.

My 4x4 fuse keeps blowing. I put in a new one, shift into 4 wheel drive and it blows. Is it a short or could my 4 wheel drive be out. It is a 1994 chevy suburan.


Try this,on the front axle there is an actuator for the 4x4,unplug it and try to engage 4x4 with it unplugged,if the fuse doesn't blow,actuator is bad.
Also look at the wires going to the actuator they get damaged from brush and things.

It blows the 4x4 fuse when in 4x4 and i put it in gear


If you have the electrical type of 4wd system it could be anything from a bare wire to a faulty transfer case switching motor. You should have a qualified Tech look at it.

1989 Chevy Pick-up..when 4x4 engages it blowes THE FUSE!


I would replace the 4 x 4 actuating switch located top rear of transfer case. The switch has a 2 wire harness hooked to it. The same thing happened to mine. Cost me $80.00 and 30 minutes.

You might have a short in your wiring some where from the actuator back to where the wires go through the cab .could have been rubbing on something to cause this . just a thought
