My 1995 Taurus Ghia has a constant current drain (leak) of ~ 1A. Temporarily removing fuse #2 (Juction Box) fom the Engine Bay box, reduces the drain to ~ 0.02 A. Removing fuse # 27 (battery saver) from Instrument Panel box does the same but Power Windows and Interior lights are disabled. What is the Junction box and where is the Leakage occuring? The entire Steering column was replaced ~ 3 years ago becase of a damaged ignition switch. Fully recharging the battery removes the "Service Engine So

My son has a Kia Sportage 2001. The door ajar or door alarm beeps contantly showing an open door, when all doors are closed. It started intermittantly now whenever the key is in the ignition, the beeping is constant. I would go crazy listening to that while I drive. He said that he removed all the fuses one at a time and it didn't stop but I know he somehow missed one. It has to have a fuse that can be pulled. I am trying to get a diagram so I can find which fuse to pull. Can you help me?

Hi, I have the following problem with my 93 Buick Park Avenue. The heater/AC cannot be turned off. I turn it off, it the panel displays that it is off, I pull the ignition key and the heater/blower is still going. I checked every fuse and relays in the engine compartment and interior( both passenger and driver side) The only way that I can turn the blower off is by removing the 20 amp AC fuse in the engine compartment on the passenger side.

On a 1997 BMW Z3, several electrical thimgs quit wotking all at once. My brake lights quit working, all the onboard computer functions such as clock, temp, mpg, etc., the fuel gauge went to full empty with the low fuel warning light on, and the coolant temperature gauge fluctuating wildly. No previous history of anything like this, and it was perfectly fine last time out. I checked fuses and they appear fine, after removing them and checking with DVOM. Anyone have any ideas what failed?

Alternator went out and killed the battery. Replaced the alternator and car ran fine for a day. The battery charge light came on and stays on constantly. Also, the fuel gauge does not move. I have checked all fuses and replaced a couple of blown ones. Alternator is working fine (cranked car, removed positive cable from battery, car continues to run). Out of ideas.


I cannot access the wiring diagram, but one of the wires from the alternator usually goes to the dash light. It may go through the computer or other circuitry on the way. If you can trace that wire, you may find the problem. Sorry I can't tell you ... 1996 Mazda MX-5 Miata

When i turn the igniton key to on the fuse for the heater/ac blows.at first the turn signal stoped working when the heater /ac fuse blew. I replaced the fuse. the turn signal and heater worked for 2 days then the fuse blew. I removed the fuse for the heater/ac and the turn signal worked for a day. now the turn signal does not work and when I turn the ignition on the fuse blows immedietely. I downloaded a fuse box diagram from wjjeep.com/fuses and it states that fuse # 20 10amp controls ignition


The ignition run is to the ECU or Engine Control Unit. And the blinker sense is for the blinkers to chime when left on for more than one minute. Finding these kinds of problems are very hard. Because from what you said earlier that it ran for 2 days. ... Jeep Grand Cherokee

My 2004 Cavalier has two issues 1) parking lights will not go off when i turn off the car and remove the key from the ignition. I had to pull out the fuses for both main headlights. 2) my main headlights will not turn on even when we replace the fuses back into the fuse box. In short, the light switch on the car has no effect on the main headlights, however the switch still turns on the dash lights. And the parking light will not go off untill i remove the fuses... I am at a loss..... pleas

2003 GMC Envoy-the blower motor will not shut off even when key is removed form ignition. It continues to run even when relay in fuse box is removed. I have a similar problem with the A/c blower not shutting off. The only way I can stop it form running all the time is by removing the fuse. Took it to te dealer, I'm told that its either a control module issue or a resistor issue. Could even be some wiring damage. I'm told that the approximate cost to fix it would be about $400.00. If someone know


The connector fpr the resister which should be located close to blower motor counld be melted from overheated resister. you should check and replace resister and connector.this should be your fix. thanks and good luck. ... 2003 GMC Envoy

1999 Ford Taurus Se with U engine. When turning car off and removing the key, the oil and ABS light are still illuminated, also the chime to alert you that the key is in the ignition chimes. I solved the chime problem by removing the ignition key tumbler and removing the sensor that causes the chime that was loose. No idea why the oil and ABS lights stay on when the car is off anf the key is out.


Well if the ABS light is still on when you turn the car off you might want to check the brakes especially if you have drums in the back. check the oil level too. also the oil pressure guage might be bad along with the abs sensor. ... 1999 Ford Taurus

My heater switch lights stay on in my 1995 honda civic even when the ignition is turned off. I thought it might be the heater switch because one of the times I turned the ignition off the heater as well as the lights (the ones on the buttons that control where the air flow goes and comes from) stayed on. But in subsequent trials the fan turned off and the lights as well but then they proceeded to turn on after a minute by themselves; they also flicker. I checked the fuse panel to remove the fuse
