2003 saturn vue 2.2l 4cyl. code P1516, SES and reduced power light on. What is causing ETC fuse to blow.

P1516 Electronic Throttle Mod Throttle Pos This is the code for the TPS switch you changed the ETC should be for the cooling sys. It could be a short inside the temp sw. itself or a bad wire see if you can run a wire from the battery to the cooling fans and see if they run ok. if so I would change the etc switch as it doesn't cost that much and go from there. The limp home mode is probably caused by overheating at this point. Reset the ecm and see if it comes back after you change the etc switch. Hope this helps.

98 harley fatboy turns over but wont start

some after market ignitions don't spark on the first couple of turns but first take off your air cleaner twist the throttle and look to see if gas is spraying in the carb if not give it a little starting fluid if it fires but then dies then its carb issue. now other thing to check is if you have three posts on your coil then its single fire and your plug wires might be going to the wrong spot switch um around.

1972 olds 98 455ci starts and runs fine when its cold but once i've driven it for awhile it starts sputtering like its running out of gas

sounds like a vapor lock. older cars needed a set of points . they kept firing times in sync with fuel delivery , valves opening/closing try that.

After a short ride 40 miles.. My evo fatboy started backfiring sputtering an died. An will do nothing when the starter switch is pressed turning over just silence.

Perhaps a dead battery or blown fuse, first check on your fuse box to see for a blown fuse.If this happens then you have a short in your wire somewhere....

98 jimmy four point three vortex will not fire until you let off the key. Acts like its out of time but has brand new timing chains and gears. The ignition mod tests good.

Even though your ignition mod tests good, you should try a different one. The tests do not always show a fault. What is happening is, your ignition is not getting enough power to fire in cranking mode. The usual reason for this is a faulty module.

I replaced a fuse in my 98 S-10 for cluster and now wont start

You risk fire by installing oversized fuse. And the dash cluster uses printed circuits, and too much amperage will fry those wires...

Now you will need to pull the involved parts and inspect until you find some damage, then find the original fault.

As you have found, these types of problems are somewhat intermittent. I often install a circuit breaker of the same voltage, as the problem progresses, to allow for function. Eventually, the issue will be present enought to actually find something upon surgery.

Bike not starting

everyday and it was fine. Yesterday went to a friend's house to ride. Shut her down to wait for him to warm up. When I tried to fire it back up it turned once and stopped. Tried again, turned once, and stopped. Then tried it again, it did not even turn anymore. I repeated this about 10 times with no turning. It just makes a wheeeeee sound. No clicking. Battery is fine. Have it on the charger just to be sure, but I'm 99 percent sure its fine. I'm thinking relay, but so far, all the threads I've read about relay problems have a clicking sound. I have no clicking... I'm searching now, as we speak, but if anyone could help me out,,I saw a relay failure post about a month or so ago. Could be that. For me, the probs I have had like you describe. 1) battery was fried, wouldn't hold charge. (bought new battery) 2) sidestand switch short. Bypass mod is easy job. 3) fuel pump wire shorted (is your pump coming on and priming at key-on?) after fixing those through the years I haven't had any start issues hassles like this suck. I feel for you mate. Best of luck to you though. ,,,
