Hi, Anonymous you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below, and for specific information or questions, please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com. Good luck and have a nice day.

After replacing battery,extra installed lights come on,but turn of ignition switch ,nothing.


You may have blown the main fuse for the starter relay. Easy to do. If you follow the red positive battery cable to the starter relay (most models) you'll find the starter relay at the other end. There should be a fuse in the relay or in a panel on the atv. Same type square standard sized boxed fuses car use. Best place to start. If you comment or answer with your year, make, model and engine size I can provide a better answer.

**FYI - that's a pretty standard starter relay. That's for a Yamaha Bear Tracker - two fuses - one is the main and the other is a spare that you can pull out and use. When the fuse blows no power. - With your lights - they will still work if attached directly to battery. Relay won't if fuse is blown.

29, 30 & 31 are the starter relay for the model this diagram goes to. Usually the relay is going to be close to the battery, by the way.

I have a96 isuzu trooper just had the starter checked and its good but still not doing anything when i stick key in theignition to start could it be the security system


NO CRANK. 96 USA car,(are my answers) check all fuses 1st !
C1 and FL1 and FL3 fuses good?
4wd ? or 2wd. auto or stick shift?
which engine? size? and cyl count....??????? 2.6 or 3.2liters?
wiring varies by engine type, so i guess more....
Does it crank ok with jumper cables (?) to a running donor car?
can be lots of things, gee the IMMO light in the dash is clear.
is it glowing? (the operators guide covers that.)
is this a USA car or Canada? some are different.
got a voltmeter even a $10 walfart meter works perfect.
or do you want to gue$$ and go broke fast. its your cash but/?.......
3.2 v6 shows no IMMO pins on the PCM...... so...?? in 1996

  1. battery dead, or discharges or terminals at 4 ends bad on cables.
  2. Fuses good.?
  3. turn key does CEL lamp glow?(cluster) if not , its not going to start with a dead ECU.
  4. no is the IMMO lamp glowing.
  5. key to start, (crank pos) silent.? now shift to Neutral like the the operators guide shows, cranks now? (a/t trans and no trans stated, so.... i guess away at what is there......
  6. does the starter relay close cranking, if not, work back from that and dont blame the starter, motor. fuse C1 runs this relay. is C1 good. or FL1 or FL2 fuse blows,
  7. ill now show the schematic (wild guessing engine and transmission..!!!)
this is the cranking path, (good starter and battery and cables)
the top of the drawing is the main power 12v feed from FL1 and FL2 fuses. (mains)
then you turn the switch to start
and 12v goes to fuse C1. got that?
then to the a/t box PRNDL switch. and in park or neutral
the 12vcc passes (10 to 12.6) cranking, or more if starter dead.
goes to the starer relay. the relay closes. does it?
if not it will never ever crank the starter.
if you have manual trans, the part in ? below is a clutch switch (pedaL )

NO ANTIHEIFT OPTION.
the bottom of the coil in starter relay is grounded. full time.
if you have antitheft option the Antitheift module makes up that ground. if happy.
so if the pin 5 on relay is 12vdc(dead relay) then the IMMO is unhappy. good luck fixing that.....

if IMMO not happy,
we then try both keys, lost your spare?
oops.....

one voltmeter and 15min work , or 10 less if IMMO lamp glows or flashes.
does it?
my post assumes, all things can fail, lacking, good input on dash lamps....

There is no reaction when turning the key to start the car


Turn key to On.
Turn on headlights manually... Do they come on?
Are there any lights on the dash?
If yes to these, battery is possibly not the sole problem.
Check for good, tight and clean connections at battery terminal posts!
If yes to above, continue on & get a helper... Turn key past on, to Start position.
Do you hear a click sound at time key is turned to Start?
If yes, then ignition switch is not problem, starter relay is getting power, and is now sending power to starter, but starter is not working.
Pic any No's... Then look there.
Good luck.

Ignition fuse blowing


If you have everything unplugged, and your still blowing the fuse, then you have a short to ground somewhere. Here is a picture of the schematic, not really that much going on in this system. I would be checking the main starter wire for chaffing along with any other wires in the area, including the wires coming out of the fuse box. And see if you can at least hear the starter relay click when you try to start it. If you can't hear it, try swapping it with another relay in the fuse box that doesn't have an important function, like fog lamps, or the horn, temporarily of course. If you get tired of blowing large fuses, you can get a circuit breaker of the same amperage at any parts store along with some wire and blade type terminals, and you can insert the blade terminals in the sbf number 4 slots and connect it to the circuit breaker. And inst of blowing a fuse all the time, it will just reset automatically. just make sure it doesn't get too hot. I hope this info helps!

Car won't start when I turn the key to start the #10 fuse engine relay pops I checked every thing down to the fuel pump and every thing is fine the few times I got it started I took it around the block and...


I had a similar problem where the battery was ok but there was no sound from the starter and also there no lights on in the dash when the key was turned. Checked the fuse and checked wire from the fuse back to the ignition switch. The wire from the fuse was ok in fuse box but had no voltage at the ignition sw. The was also no voltage to terminal 30 in the starter relay. Ran a new wire from the fuse to the ignition and it fixed everything. Check for voltage at terminal 30 on the starter relay

Ignition fuse keeps blowing when i turn the key


It MUST be the starter relay coil - or the power wire that feeds it. Likely a short in the relay coil (AKA starter selenoid).
