Not sure why the check engine port has no power,looking for a blown fuse

On GM it's part of the cigarette lighter circuit, check that fuse.
If not just get a test light, ground it to a good ground, turn the key to the on position, then use the test light to touch both exposed terminals on each fuse, test light should light on both sides of each fuse, if it only lights on one side, then that fuse is blown. This saves the trouble of pulling each fuse out to inspect it. Good luck.

92-95 honda civic ex 1.6L vtec won't start! New battery, new main relay. Still no start. As you notice the engine would crank but won't start up. Also the dash lights aren't lighting up either....

Did you get the key switch checked out ? The dash indicator lights have to be on for the engine to start. So you are not getting power to the dash lights, and probably not to the computer or ignition coil either.

Diesl engine 7.3 ford, stopped running suddenly. Turned ignition off and attempted to restart. Glow plug indicator light did not turn on and the fuse for the glow plugs was blown. Replaced fuse and blew...

May have more than 1 problem. As far as the fuse goes, may have a shorted glwplug relay or bad wiring harness at the valve cover.This is a complex system, you can though a bunch of money away on guesses. Best to have vehicle taken to qualified Ford diesel mechanic, he has the equipment to chek the system, rather that throw parts. Could get real expensive with no results. Good luck

2003 Buick Century Custom and the Service Engine Soon Light

You will need to have a reputable mechanic do a diagnostic check on the car to determine the problem. This should pull up a code number in your car's computer and help point the mechanic and you in the direction of the malfunctioning part/s.

Just today, I had a diagnostic check done on mine for nearly $45.00. The mechanic was able to figure out the reason why my service engine light was staying on. I knew my car's radiator fans failed to run when car's engine was hot except when the A/C was running. I had changed out the sensors and was never able to get the light to go out or get the fans working. They were able to determine that the 25 amp fuse for the fans located under the hood was blown. After replacing it, the fans worked as they should, my car runs cooler and the engine service engine light is now out. Of course there are many possible reasons why the service engine light may come on including problems with the car's emissions. A reputable mechanic can solve your problem.
