Blow fuse box dry with a hair dryer. Look under dashboard, left bottom. And under hood, just inside right front fender, between battery and fender, is the power distribution center.

How could you have possibly gotten the fuses wet? And the only way it would matter is if it were salt (conductive) water.

A little water in there isn't going to matter, not for long.

Fuel gauge,speedo,rev meter and temp gauge not working


I'd check the manual if I had one, and try to find if the dash accessories are routed through one fuse. Check the fuses.
Let me know if you fix it.

Ford transit 2001 short wheel base, i have lost all my dash instruments on speedo , no fuel gauge in nothing. Is it just a fuse or something else ?


It will not just be a fuse Please google fuse & understand what one is Do not take this as being rude but we get thousands of fuse questions A fuse if you look at one is no more than a piece of wire bent into a U & put into a piece of plastic It will be smaller than the wire it protects & blow to save the circuit,nothing else Fuses fix nothing at all If a fuse does blow you have to find out why For your dash issues you need a dealer or the best shop in 30 miles to diagnose & find the problem There may be a found solution, but it will only be in a repair shop data base, they pay for,not for the public to know about

Gauges top working security system not working vehicle will start but only runs 2 seconds


fuses, check all fuses in all fuse boxes. under dash and hood.
the IMMO SKIM , stops fueling of the engine.
the SKIM lamp in the dash shows, that. it sticks on or flashes
you have a transponder key ,right?
and you insert the key as the oper guide states, and the lamp SKIM
self tests. then must go out, if not, the engine will never run more than 2 seconds by Design.
  1. so fix the dead dash first.
  2. then get the SKIM lamp out
  3. then start car.

There is a fuse for the warning lights and gauges. Yes, you checked the fuses and relays, but you need to check if power is there at the fuse, with the key in the on position.

Here's how turning the key to on causes the warning lights and gauges to turn on: From your ignition switch the on or run wire out of it will have power with key on. The run wire will also send power to the part of the fuse panel that is of the category "hot in run or on", where your fuse for the dash warn. lts. & gauges is- it may be labeled "meter" or "gauges" or like that. From the fuse, a hot wire goes into the harness for the instrument cluster-for the warning lights and gauges. The wire, like the fuse, is only hot in on or run.

The ignition's run wire may splice with a direct connection to some fuses, or more likely there may be an "ignition relay" that powers the "hot in run or on" fuses, and the run wire is used to turn the relay on. You could look for this relay just above or around the fuse panel under the dash. But the easiest place to start is to see if the fuse for the gauges has power to it with the key in on. If it does, the problem is up further on at the cluster connection or a ground for the gauges and cluster. If the fuse has no power available, then the problem is between the ignition switch and the fuse panel. That could be a faulty ignition relay.

Gas gauge and temp gauge and heater/ac fan dont work


Sounds like a fuse or an earth wire loose in the cabin. Take the fuses out and chk them in the light. Go thru all earth wires both in and outside the cabin, something is loose if not a fuse, remember fuses in the engine bay. cheers

Radio not working


It is the fuse inside that yellow fuse holder on the lower left side that is bad. Not the one that says audio that is the problem you can not see the fuse but it is in that yellow holder.
