Had to take the vehicle back in to the repair shop. Good thing. Found smaller fuses blown and wires crimped behind stereo in dashboard. Told this could have been the original reason for main fuse failing. Works like a charm now, auto antanna raises, seatbelt light beeps and security system lights up. Stereo also works.

Wifes 2004 Nissan Maxima SE has issues, where should I start looking or common electrical shorts in system?

common electrical shorts in system? No common problems , no silver bullet's . Taking the vehicle to a auto part store is your big mistake . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop. That has a factory or professional scan tool that can read DTC'S in the BCM - body control module . An others etc.. Shifter not moving from park to drive , shift interlock system , shift lock control unit . Auto part store's can not read these code's .
You have no idea the electronic's your dealing with .

Why no power from battery to anything on my Nissan Quest?

There are large fuses to protect the major circuits. Are you sure the cable connections are clean and tight ? Have you checked the major fuses for power, and the ground connection ?

Could a 1000 amp battery blow fuses in a 1999 blazer

Likely there is a blown fuse but a battery won't blow a fuse on its own. Change any blown fuses and if that fixes the issue and the fuse doesn't blow for awhile then your ok but if the fuse blows quickly then you have an issue with the electrical system and you need to take it to a shop

1998 maxima after I tried wiring a fog light power line into the fuse for the blower everything worked fine then I turned off the lights and the entire car died blew the blower fuse and i replaced the fuse...

you may have to replace a circuit breaker (30amp ) or more, your blower motor may be part of the ignition system, it takes alot to blow a CB, but maybe thats what you did. under the hood , near battery, find the box that houses all or most of the CB'S. IT SHOULD BE clearly marked, which CB is for each circuit. look for the ignition circuit, replace it, also check if theres one for blower motor, this is probably a fuse only @ fuse box inside the car. see how this works , and let a qualified mech., wire up your fog lights, good luck

No voltage to the main relay box

Could have burnt some of the fuse box up. Could also have fusable links which are fuses built into some of the wires in the whole system. I would suggest if you are going to try to fix the problem yourself then you should get you a electrical tester and check the fuse box out and go from there. it could be one of maythings but i would start at the fuse box. Hope this helps and good luck

You blew a fuse. Im guessing most likely culprit is a fusible link. try both sides of fusible links found by your battery. both sides should show your approximate battery voltage. check all fuses especially ones that show power regardless of the ignition switch being on or off.

My battery light won't go off in my car and my reverse lights don't work. what could it be?

the battery light would most likely indicate a charging system fault. it could be just a faulty ground in the instrument cluster. have the charging system checked.

the reverse lights are controlled by a switch that engages when the shift lever is moved to the reverse position. this could either be stuck in the on position or be grounded.

1998 chevy 3500hd, 6.5 turbo. has two new batteries and two new alternators but when hot there is an intermitant draw that dims the lights and puts a major drain on the electrical system when running. What...

Some educated guesses:-
Check the operation of the radiator cooling and air conditioner condensor fans.- There may be a seized fan motor causing the current draw.
With such a major current draw I would expect a fuse to blow or circuit breaker to operate - check all fuses installed in system are of correct rating,

Check for damaged (heat?) wiring adjacent to exhaust/turbo fittings.
