Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

Hello and thanks for your time, I have a 92 0lds cutlass with over 170,000 miles at speeds of above 60 I start blowing fuses it started with turn right turn signal, I changed fuse it did it again, I replaced the 15amp with a 20 amp for 2 days and blew out the brake light fuse, The bulbs are not blown as I have checked them at nite to make sure they are good I just cant figure out if I have a short or a bad bulb some where?

What i think is happening is when you travel fast the wind and bumps are causing a wire to short and blow the fuses. a bad ground will cause this also. If you do not exceed 60 the fuses dont blow ? At times like these i do alot of hands on and visual checks of connections and grounds by wiggling them and having a helper listen for a fuse to pop and by touching that wire then you know that was the problem. If i don't have a helper i wait till dark and turn on car lights or blinker what ever seems to go out and i will wiggle wires in the dark looking for small sparks indicating a short.

1995 olds cutlass serpreme starts jerking when i get speed up to around 50 and 60 miles per hr.

it either has a cylinder misfire or is running lean. Sometimes the air flow sensor gets a varnish coating on the heated wires and needs to be cleaned with spray carb cleaner

Car has 170,000 miles and it all of a sudden won't

Could be the belt. Take the belt cover loose and see if it's turning when someone cranks it.

Fuze #14 blown. this powers back uplamp,daytime running lamps relay coil, a/c pressure switch,cruise control, heated pvc,trailer tow back up lamps, abs, reverse park aid and ec mirror. the fuze blows any...

please give me the year of the f-150 and any added option you have so i can check the schematic's to see if i can pin point something that could cause this issue.

very strange one though. but must have something to do with it going 60... you said you isolated a few thing does that mean you have tested them and ruled them out?

96 jeep cherokee, replace cps and the engine control fuse

The guy at the garage today, said he went out and put a fuse in it and it started right up. Thats all he did for now. I going to have a closer look on the weekend. But, as before when I went 1/2 mile it would burn the fuse again. We will have to see if it does again, I espect it will. Any idea?
