Radio clock accessory 15amp fuse blows in 1997 4 runner?
If the radio fuse is blowing on a 1997 4Runner then there may be a short somewhere in the wiring. Search for the short using a volt meter to avoid any more fuses to blow.

Answer . \nwell depending on the make and model...i would start by checking all around the dash board...under it, open both driver and passenger side doors and check the s…ides of your dash. Sometimes they are in your glovebox( older cars mostly), and if that all fails look under your hood. You could always look in your owners manual as well.
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nunderneath the hood in a fuse block, or under your left knee on the driverside in the cabin\n. \nThere is also a set of fuses behind the glove …box.
It is a lot of work . \nMost of the bottom paneling needs to come off\n. \nstart on the drivers side and work you way to the passenger side\n. \n3/8 bolt next to the door…s\n. \n . 2 phillps screws recessed \n . \nthere are also a couple in the glove compartment area\n. \nafter that the radio paneling should pop off\n. \nThis is what I had to do for my 91\n. \nI dont think there will be much difference
Answer . \nyou might have a short in the electrical system
Answer . \nIt is labeled ACC (accessory) and is located under the driver side dash. to the left of the fuel/hood release. 15 amp BLUE fuse, bottom left if i remember corre…ctly!
Why do the radio and clock fuses keep blowing in a 1997 Ford Contour Sport. The previous owner said they changed the solenoid and they only blew once a month after that but is there another problem?
Blown fuse . The fuses are there to provide protection from the amperage, since ur fuses are blowing you probably have a short in the wire. I would say replacing the wire,… unless ur able to find where the the copper is exposed and tape that up.
Can i replace a 15 amp fuse in my car with a 20 amp fuse I have 2 10 neons that keep blowing the 15amp Can i put a 20 instead of 15amp?
Yes, but only temporarily. There is a reason for certain electrical circuits to have a certain sized fuse. If the 2 10 neons keep blowing the 15 amp fuse, then something is wr…ong in the wiring or you need to remove one or more of the neon lamps, or route the second neon through another fuse. If the wiring is only rated for 15 amps and one changes the fuse and allows up to 20 amps to flow through a wire rated for 15, it could cause a fire and then one gets auto flambe'. I would suggest you wire your own set of wires instead of using your cars factory wiring; when the factory wires up a car they only account for how much amperage the car is going to use and not added on accessory's. To do this you need to find out how many amps your neon is using (i suggest using a voltage multimeter to find this) once you do that get the wire and fuses you need and connect it straight to the battery. that way you wont be stealing power from the factory wiring and over loading it.( Do Not Connect neon that doesn't have transformer(internal or external) or some sort of resistor straight to the battery you will fry it!)
Add up the amperage draw of all the things connected to the accessory fuse and you will probably find that it is more than the capacity of the fuse itself. Most times extern…al amps are directly wired to the battery with a separate inline fuse for protection, the amp is turned on by a signal from the receiver via the din cord. My wife and daughter do it all the time at home, 2- 12 amp blow driers on a 20 amp circuit is way too much, the amp draw of all the accessories shuld be 20% below the fused amp protection. That does not mean put in a larger fuse either, the wires that carry the current are also designed to only carry that amount.
The 1992 Toyota 4-Runner does not have a separate fuse for theclock. There are, however, two fuses that control the radio andclock. At slots 18 and 19 in the fuse box, there i…s a mirror/radiofuse and a radio fuse.
because they use an very old technology for fuses and stuff...the best one ive found is on eBay 3 queed only but is must be a:60 amp fuse onlyyyyyyyyyyyy.
\nThere are 2, one is under the hood in the top left corner follow the diagram on the back of the lid. The other is next to the drivers left foot just push the little lock thi…ng and it opens right up again follow the diagram on the inside of the lid.\n. \nHope this helps
It is interior fuse #18 ACC 15 amps it controls car audo, power antenna, clock, and power rear mirror
on driver side floor board,about 8 inches up ,theirs your fuse box.
Removal is relatively straight forward, it is easier to see with pictures then explain in text. Please check out my bio page for info on how to remove and service the clock.
Can't remember which one but one of the red ones in the fuse box under the hood.
A fuse is designed to protect an electrical system from too much power. The fuse is blowing because there is too much power going through it. One of the systems that go throug…h that particular fuse line probably has a short. Just keep in mind, that the gage may not be the problem, but a symptom. Most vehicles share a single fuse for multiple systems. For example the gage could share the same fuse line as the cruise control and if the the cruise control has a short and blows the fuse, you loose your gages too.
same problem with 99 I replaced switch still have problem did motor check 4 prong plug explained in Haynes manual still have problem next I have to check back of fuse box then… all wires one by one all look good up and down steering column
