Not charging. -- When the ignition is on: the big wire that is screwed onto the alternator has power, one of the two small wires that clip onto the alternator has power and the other does not. 15A "ALT" fuse and 120A main in fuse box by battery both check good.

I was looking for a 12v keyed power source under the hood when I heard a fuse pop. I wasn't touching a live wire at the time it popped but I lost my cruise control. I have checked the cruise control fuse, #14, and it is fine without any power to it's posts. this fuse box has the power coming into it from the battery so I believe their is another blown fuse that feeds this one. there are many block type "?resistors?" on among the fuses but I don't know how to check those. Do you know what po


The "resistors" are actually maxi-fuses. Your Batt1 or Batt2 fuse is blown more than likely. There should be other components that are not working. \015\012Look down into the Maxi-fuse, you should be able to see the fused bridge of ... 2002 Buick LeSabre

I had my car stored for 6 months, battery disconnected and when I reattached it inside lights etc. came on but not enough juice to turn it over. Attached a battery charger which charged the battery to 80% then all went dead. I checked the small fuses in the fuse box and all ok. There are two large silver fuses on the left of the box. I think they're 20 amp fuses. Is there a way to tell if they have blown? Any other ideas what might have happened? Thanks


Yeah your battery is crossed time for a new one as for those fuses they should have a little window on them top part for you to see if they are blown ... 2007 Chevrolet Blazer

Installed new battery in 92 Toyota pickup, now I have no power inside vehicle; radio, clock etc and it will not turn over. Dome light has power, headlights work. Starter will not engage. Checked battery and it is good. Tried jumping with another vehicle, no luck. Ive checked fuses and all are OK. Maybe shorted something out by not connecting wires back properly? Large white wire going to fuse box connected to positive, large wire going to starter connected to positive. Smaller wire in same sheat


You have a wire off some where look real good,one may have fell down under the battery or somewhere,or there is a fusible link burned. ... 1992 Toyota Pickup

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 1989 300e mercedes. If i drive and let sit overnight it will not start. Battery dead. I replaced the battery and alternator. If i charge battery for less than 5 minutes it will crank and start up. Any ideas on what could be pulling that much power from the battery to drain it? I checked voltage on fuses and only three are pulling power when the car is off. 1 is the clock, radio ect. fuse. 2 is to the aux. fan.. 3 is to lock controls, antenna, ect.. They are pulling about 11.8 volts.


Do the fans run properly and shut off when cars is off? If not they may be draining the battery. A bad stock antenna could drain battery because of the control module. Also the central locking pump if it keeps running (its supposed to shut off aft ... 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class

I have a 2002 Mercury Villager and I reversed polarity (installing new battery). Luckily, the battery stayed intact, not so luckily, the car (with new battery) is completely dead electrically. When I look in the fusible link box, I am unsure which fuses I am checking to see whether or not they are blown (I know they are labeled), but is there a specific fuse (describing the above idiotic maneuver) in which I need to be looking at?
