Blew major $82.00 fuse to entire electrical system, complete battery drain, limited lights and electrical. System working 100% now, in 97 SE Nissan Pathfinder. Is there a fuse in the CDE unit box, if the reset button does not work to start up receiver system.
Re: Where is fuse in Alpine CDE 9842 Car Reciever?
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.

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 .
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
The clicking is probably the clue . What ever that relay powers up is draining the battery . This is called a parasitic draw on the electrical system .An there is a way to find the problem . The BEST Way TO Perform Parasitic Draw Test
There should be a tool in the fuse box to pull fuse's with !
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
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.
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.
