Electricla I had a situation where both battery terminals came in contact with the hood causing smoke to fill the cab. The main fuse box is ok as I can randomly get the truck started but at times it will not start or have no power at all. I noticed a large electrical box behind the dashboard that has a large plug. Is this a distribution box for the electrical system and could this be the problem. Thank you


When the hood made contact with the battery terminals a discharge occurred then probably the battery is dying, take it to AutoZone, OReilly or any autocare shop they will check it for free and they will diagnostic if you need to replace it. ... 1985 Ford F 250

Yes they do but I would rather think you have a bad battery cabe connection to the system, sometimes the battery cable corrudes and you can't see it try replacing the cable ends and the connector ends espically if they are by the battery. ... 2003 Dodge Caravan

What could be the problem in a 1993 Saturn SL1 car that does not start. It sounds like electrical. When the ignition switch is swung, the engine sounds like it is out of fuel but its not. The relays and fuses in the fuse box, battery, alternator, computer, spark plugs, coils, spark plug cables are all working fine. The only thing we have noticed is that the coil is not getting any electrical current hence, the reason why the spark plugs are not firing. We have traced all the wiring but stil


Well it is 17 years old, many things could be bad. There is a hook up under the dash to connect an analyzer, that would be a place to start. There are two coils, under the coils is an ignition module, that could be bad. ... 1993 Saturn SL1

I have a 1991 Nissan 300zx that is having some electrical issues. It all started when I blew a 10A fuse. I replaced the fuse and everything was fine for awhile. Now it keeps blowing the 10A Illumination fuse, thinking it was the dimmer switch, I ordered a new one. The replacement on does the same thing. The headlights come on, but are very dim on one side, and I have no marker lights. I did notice my red "bulb out" light was coming on when I pressed the brakes. Any idea what the problem could be

I have shorted out the electrical system in a 1998 mercury mystique. I still have somethings like the horn, headlights and dashlights but not the power locks, windows, brake lights, signal lights etc. it also will not start anymore. It will turn over but will not fire up. There is power at the engine compartment relays for things that are not working but no power at the interior fuse box. This all start from trying to fix the heater fan that no longer worked.

I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The car not starting is a random problem. When I turn the key on the lights go on but nothing happens as far as starting. I do not hear any sound at all.

I have a 96 chevy tahoe. my starter went out and kept blowing my ingnition a maxi fuse. Like a idiot i out another fuse with a higher amperage just so I could start the truck up. After i replaced the starter, i took it for a test drive and noticed it was driving in second gear, speedometer wasnt working and the abs system was acting funny. I was then told it was my "brain box" or ECM. replaced that and its still doing the same thing. is there anything else that it could be?


Probably Speed Sensor is bad; you will need to prove all the powers and grounds to the control module. For the ABS System, I suggest scanned for any code there.Tell us news. ... Chevrolet Tahoe

Speedometer For a while it would randomly jump high or low. Over the weekend i drove it through 8-900 mile trip and the speedometer was jumping the majority of the time. I got in the engine and made sure all connected cords were tight and not lose. When I started the jeep again my yellow engine light came on. I took apart the dash to check out the connection behind the speedometer and it was in good condition. I followed the cords to the engine fuse box and the fuses were old but looked good. tw

Blower motor won't turn on on all settings. I tested the switch and it works. I found there is no power to the two fuses in the fuse box inside the vehicle. The vehicle has an after market alarm with a remote start. When the remote start is turned on the blower motor works. Also the airconditioning switch does not work. It seems like the whole system does not have power from the fuse box. Checked all the fuses with the blower motor and AC system and they are good.

I have a 97 jeep wrangler, its a 2.5 liter 4cyl 5 speed. It has a starting issue now and again, it won't turn over lights and all electrical turns on but it just wont turn. When fuses are checked the start fuse is blown. I replaced the starter thinking that this may help the situation but unfortunately it hasn't, my jeep still seems to be burning up the start fuse. Could there possibly be something such as a short? that causes this to keep happening? please help i'm tired of pushing my jeep and


First thing you should do is check the starter draw. A simple way of doing that is to put a volt meter on the battery and crank the engine over. Volts should not drop below 9.5 while cranking.Since you replaced the starter, though some can be defecti ... 1997 Jeep Wrangler

I started my vehicle (2000 Honda Passport 4WD EX 3.2L V6) and started to drive when the engine cut off, but left all electrical on...when i tried to restart, it would turn and turn, but not crank...certainly didn't sound like anything mechanical, so the first thought was electrical; therefore, i checked fuses...i noticed the ECM fuse was blown...i knew there had to be a reason the fuse blew, so i replaced it and tried starting the vehicle again...started like a champ as usual, but soon cut off a

My 99 P38 4.0 has the rl7 relay area burned out of the fuse box. After milking it to long replacing relays to run the fans in the FL heat, I lost my climate control display and radio. Then it started killing good batteries quick. I bought a used fuse box in great shape but it is missing a fuse and small relay plugs in it for the engine management system and it will not start. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to use this good fuse box even though it is a little different?

I have a 1996 Toyota Tercel with an aftermarket alarm system that I'm uninstalling. There are two large gauge wires from the ignition bundle, black/yellow & white/red that have taps on them. A third smaller gauge wire, white/black that was cut & installed on the alarm bundle. I removed all taps (including two power taps on the fuse box) and reconnected the black /white wire.

I left the dome light on over the weekend in my 1998 Jeep Cherokee limited, so I had to charge the battery, but now it wont start, seems like its not getting any gas, then I noticed the fuel gauge wasnt working, I checked fues and someone mentioned to me I may have to reset the fuel pump relay. I looked at the fuse box on the firewall and didnt see any switch to reset, does anyone have any suggestions to what the problem might be? Thank you.


There is no relay reset. You can try locking and unlocking the drivers door using the key. usually that will re-set the security system. ... Jeep Cherokee

I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler with a 2.5L engine. It was running great but recently would not start. The engine turns over but acted as if not getting fuel. When I cleaned and pressed down on the fuel pump fuse, the engine caught and was able to drive it. Now when I try to start even while applying downward pressure on the fuel pump fuse, the engine starts and immediately dies. The engine will only catch if pressing down on the fuse and if NOT depressing the gas pedal. As soon as I try to give it
