If this fuse only blows when you crank the engine then this would tell me the starter is shorting out and blowning the fuse. make sure to check it by replacing the fuse and turning the key on without cranking the engine and if the fuse doesnt blown then crank the engine and if the fuse blows then its the starter, replace the starter and this will take care of the problem.good day and hope this is helpful.

Hi John!
  • There is a short in the Circuit. Do not put any more fuses in it.
  • Take it to the Electric Shop to have it diagnosed.

Polarity was reversed when jump starting vehicle installed new battery & no power to anything mechanic said fuse got blown.What fuse,where it is located & cost of it.


Hard to say without make, year, and model-but check all fuses in the power distribution box under the hood- ignition, alternator fuse, etc.-all of them, the small ones and the maxi-fuses. All fuses are pretty cheap. If you still have nothing, you may need a wiring diagram to check for fusible links that would be power distributors right off or near the battery. Fusible links work much like a fuse, and most have been replaced by maxi-fuses, but many vehicles have both. If there is a designated main fuse, it should be in the distribution block or box under the hood.

After replacing the timing belt and resetting the timing correctly all of the sudden there is NO FIRE to the system from the battery.The car will turn over but no spark.NEED HELP, if anyone has an ide


Breeze, 4 cylinder: check fuse # 5 (20a), fuse #1 (10a), fuse # 10 (10a)- in the power distribution box. Check for power to the coil on the dark green wire with orange stripe. If power there, test the coil. If coil is good, suspect the cam position sensor or the crank position sensor.
Breeze, 6 cylinder: check fuse # 5 (20a), fuse # 10 (10a). Check for power to coil on the dark green wire with orange stripe. If no power to coil, try a new or known good Auto Shutdown Relay (in the power distribution center). If still no power to coil, may be a problem in wiring harness. If there is power to coil, and still no spark, test the coil. If coil is good, suspect the cam position sensor (in the distributor), or the crank position sensor. If all check good, may be a problem in the wiring or the pcm (computer).
Good luck.

I have a 2008 GMC 2500. My cigarette lighter (not the Aux 1 or 2 power jack) stopped working and I check all the fuses. None are blown but I have no power. Are there any in-line fuses in this circuit?


Check fuse 55 in the eng. comp. and check the power fuse "alt pwr" 20A in the driver's side fuse panel on side of dash.
I melted my right side power plug with a portable compressor and blew the fuse in the dash panel. I need to get a new power plug now.
