You'll have to take the whole fuse box off and follow the wire thats behind the main relay to discover where your open is

Could be a fuse , relay, switch, electrical short. blower motor itself.To eliminate the blower ck the ac, see if it blows air & take it from there.Jump the relay, use a test light to ck fuses & ck for shorts.

Blowing brake light fuse


you might want in this case try a higher rating fuse, example is if the fuse is 15 amp rase it to a 25 amp fuse,try not to go over 40 amp if possible,if that still blows it is more than likley a shorted switch or a bad relay causing the overload or short. after the fuse change an still a problem chech the relay for the break lights next,these are located in the engine compartment and on some models in the trunk,good luck,Gary

All the lights work except the dash lights. The 5 amp fuses keep blowing and if I put a 15 amp it doesnt blow but no dash lights


DASH HAS A SHORT CIRCUIT.DASH NEED REPLACING BUT CHECK FOR SHORTS IN THE WIRES TO DASH.DONT PUT A LARGER AMP FUSE IN A CIRCUIT TO KEEP FROM BLOWING FUSE BECAUSE IF FUSE DONT BLOW WIRES GET HOT IN THE CIRCUIT THAT HAS A SHORT IN IT AND CAUSE A CAR FIRE.

Where is fuel pump main relay


Grab a Haynes manual #42014 and on page 4-4 it explains how to test the main relay. The main relay is located up under the instrument panel, attached to a bracket on the left side of the steering column. Also, check the number 1 fuse or the ACG S fuse found in the engine compartment. Both of these fuses are 15 amp.

92 cadillac deville a/c blows fuse


The conector for the a/c compressor comes with a diode that keeps power from returning after the compressor cycles off. Check or replace the connector/and or diode and see if that fixes the problem
