Finding an Electrical Short

Disconnect the negative battery cable (-). Connect a 12 volt test light between the negative terminal of your battery and the negative battery cable which you just removed.

1. If the test light is lit-up or shows a faint glow you've got some kind of drain on the battery.

You can now begin to track down the circuit that is causing the draw on the battery. Leave the test light set up as before and now go to the fuse box, and one-by-one remove each fuse until the test light goes out.

Once the test light goes out, you have found the circuit that has the drain. Now reinstall the fuse. One-by-one disconnect the wires fed by that fuse until the light goes out. Check the color of that wire. Now reference your service manual wiring diagrams (or fuse panel cover ) to identify the wire by color, and the accessories that it supplies power to.

Now you can find the culprit that is mercilessly draining your battery and begin troubleshooting the component and related wiring.

2. If the test light doesn't light up, you've probably got some other problem such as a bad battery or bad alternator.

I have a 1987 GMC truck with manual trans and in order for it to start I have had to press very hard on the clutch then it starts.Now it won't start anymore, how do I bypass the clutch safety switch?


replace the clutch switch or temporarily you can unplug it and jumper the 2 wires together. make sure you tape or cover the jumper wire so it won`t short out. you can try to adjust the switch as well.

My tv. proscan mod. ps50700 won`t turn on


The PS50700 uses the 195 series chassis. The most common cause of the set not starting up is a shorted flyback (high voltage) transformer. Sometimes a shorted flyback will also cause the horizontal output transistor to short too. These parts need to be tested and/or replaced by a tech familiar with the RCA 195 chassis.

I have 2001 mercury courage replace alternator 2wks ago ran great. Now today will not start. Tried to start and it would click when I turned key now won't do anything doesn't have any power....


Could quite possibly be you have a bad starter. I would have it tested. Could also be a bad battery. If, when jumping it, you used too high of a voltage, could have shorted out a wire somewhere

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus. My wife left the radio running with the ignition off for a short while. Now the car won't turn over, won't start, won't jump. There is one click when trying to s


The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start. Even if it now starts the starter will continue to give you problems so the proper fix is change the starter

Fuel injector fuse is blown, keeps blowing. Engine turns but won't catch and start.


if the injector fuse is blown then the car won`t start as its not getting fuel into the motor to fire.if the fuse keeps blowing then you could have an injector/s that is drawing too much or the injector driver in the ecm may not be any good and needs replacing or a used ecm.it could be a short some where in the wiring for the injector system that is going to ground.

Electrical - won't start. Hooked up fan to heater, smoke came out from under the hood, car won't start. Lights work, any key related electrical functions won't work


Your fan or heater likely shorted out and burned up, causing your one of the main fuses to blow due to the spike in current. You will need to determine what burnt up and replace it before replacing the fuse, or you may create a fire hazard or cause further equipment damage. Also double check any changes to wiring to make sure that everything is hooked up properly.

Euro Pro X 1750 psi Pressure washer won't start. It's plugged in and water is attached. it was fine last time i used it.Now it makes a short noise like it wants to start, but doesn't.


Check the nozzle to see if is plugged. If water can" pass thru , it won't read a water pressure drop and turn on the pump motor.
