How do you fix a short somewhere for the power windows of a Jeep Cherokee when everytime you replace the fuse it keeps blowing?
on every door panel there's a switch disconnect all the switches at the same time in stall new fuse and try to roll down 1 window at a time .each time reconnect a door switch and which ever one blows the fuse your problem is in the switch or the motor start with the switch first.
Get a wiring diagram to find all that is on that fuse then look from there. Get one from MOTORLIT.COM.

1997 Nissan truuck already left you stranded It keeps blowing fuses for fuel pump about 10 seconds after it starts could it be a short?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nIf the fuse keeps blowing it has to be a short or the fuel pump dragging causing a large current demand. It can be shorted anywhere from the fuse box to and including the fuel pump internally. Try disconnecting the fuel pump and see if the fuse blows if so run a new w…ire (fused) to the pump, see if it blows. Start at one end of an electrical problem (Fuse) and go the the other end (Pump), then go to the middle if you have the right wire you can cut it in half and see if the fuse blows.\nYou can get a self resetting fuse. If it gets impossible you can short the fuse connectors (wire or a large amp fuse) and look for smoke, it'll happen, but I would disconnect the fuel pump first. ( Full Answer )

What can cause the day time rinning lights on a 1997 Chevy Tahoe not to work when you have already changed the module and relay and the fuses are good and what can you do to fix it?
Answer . \nMaybe the problem lies in the switch that operates the "brake" light when the parking brake is applied. The DRL do not light up until the parking brake is released. I know that if my parking brake pedal is down so much as one "click" of the ratchet mechanism, the DRL do not illuminate…. ( Full Answer )

1997 GMC Jimmy 4.3L When brake pedal applied stop light hazzard fuse blows Replaced stop switch no fix cant seem to find a short hazzards work fine until brake applied?
Answer . \nTry removing brake light bulbs and sockets one at a time to try to find out if short is located in fixture itself or in wiring going to fixture--if you can isolate problem it should be easy to fix--either by replacing defective socket/bulb or wiring to same.
Answer . \nIf it is just the one light then bulb has gone out. You will have to remove the instrument panel to get to the back. Take it out and replace them all so that you dont have to do it again later. Good luck.
Your 1997 Chevy Venture keeps blowing the horn fuse and you think one horn is shorted but you can't locate the horns How do you replace them?
Answer . first push the steering wheel pad and listen for the relay, if not clicking then swap it with another one in the under hood junction box. if still no toot toot, the horns are located either under the headlight pods( re and re should be self explanitory) or in front of your knees when y…ou open the hood.

How can you fix the taillights in your 1991 F-150 if you changed the fuses and the bulbs and that did not work?
it sounds like to me, the is a wire shorted out some where, have someone mash the brake while you use a test light to see if its getting power, try at fuse box too.. if the test light does not come on either way, you have a wireing problem, or a shorted out wire. you might have to go to a junk yard… to get another wireing harness. let me know if that helps you in any way.... fordman07 ( Full Answer )
How do you fix or find a short in a wire that causes the starter fuse on a 2004 Dodge Neon to keep blowing?
Answer . Disconnect the wire at the starter and try the ignition. My guess is that the starter itself is the problem. If the fuse does not blow then it is the starter, if it does blow then go to the relay center in the engine compartment and check the starter relay. Work your way back to the ign…ition switch.

It could be the headlight switch, It has the dimmer inside it. on my 1992 I had the same problem it drove me nuts. but there 2 fuses for it. the other one was for the warning buzzard it also says that it is for that so check and see if that is it.
You go to the fuse box and look at each of the fuses' tops to see which one is burned/melted. Most fuses have glass tops thru which you can check to see if the conduit is intact. If it is burned you unscrew the fuse and replace it, making sure the replacement is of the same amperage. Make sure you t…urn off the main power before you do this or else you may get shocked. Most houses built after the 1960's use circuit breakers instead of fuses. ( Full Answer )
My 2003 Ford F-350 keeps shorting out the exterior lamp fuse I already disconnected the trailer light assembly but it's still shorting out any answers?
Kinda hard to explain an electrical issue but here we go!!! Ohms law states many things that doesn't get threw to alot of people it's very complex and hard to grasp. But once you get it, it becomes 2nd nature. Okay let's start the easy way. With electricity ONLY 4 things can happen. Short to ground,… short to power,High resistance, and an open. With any and all electrical problems always resort back to those 4 rules. Now to explain, when you have a open something doesn't work. Blown fuse, broken wire, bad ground etc. High resistance and the most complicated one is when something kinda sorta works. Headlamps dim, wiper motor slow, slow power window operation, etc. Short to power is when something is always on. When you turn the headlamp switch off and the lights stay on, tail lamps stay on after removing from reverse, etc. And the last one and your question short to ground. Blowing fuses, melting wiring, blowing bulbs in extreme cases, etc. The easy way to explain is a power wire is touching a ground circuit. So chaffing, pinched wires, exposed wiring, etc. The easiest way I have found is to isolate sections of the wiring harness. Purchuse a decent manual and if it's exterior lights go to that section and find where it starts. If you can install a circuit breaker so you don't go threw 100 fuses. Then go down the line disconnecting connectors one by one checking the fuse affected each time until it doesn't blow. Then you have isolated it in that section of the wiring loom. That's how I do it and it works everytime. Hope this helps good luck and good hunting Powerstroke 57 ( Full Answer )

You can easily replace it but you need to know why it blew in the first place. All fuses are marked on the fuse box or in the drivers manual as to which circuit they protect. Determine which circuit that blown fuse protects and inspect that circuit for troubles.
The short circuit location can be found by a diagnostic tester.When the short circuit is located, replace the wiring or switch.
First make sure it is the fuse that's gone! There are loads of reasons why the washers are apparently not working. Check the hoses (water tubes) are not frozen, blocked or even detached. You haven't run out of washer fluid have you?. Listen for the sound of the pump; if you can hear it, then the fu…se isn't the problem. If there's no sound and the hoses are OK, it could well be the fuse. Look in the vehicle's handbook for the location of the fuse. In my Peugeot 307 it was under the bonnet. Once I'd found out which fuse it was, it took about 2 mins to replace the blown one with the spare that Peugeot had kindly supplied in the glove box!. If you replace the fuse and there's still no joy, it could be the pump that's died. Apparently, replacements can be obtained cheaply from breakers' yards.. Good luck! ( Full Answer )

How do you fix or find a short in a wire that causes the tail light fuse on a 1994 grand marquis to keep blowing?
remove the rear tail light housings and check to make sure that one of the wires is not crimped by the housing (this happens alot on these cars if it simple repair the wire and make sure not to crimp it when re installing the housing if it's not at the housing you'll need to check the wire all the w…ay from the front to the back (this requires removing the seats and the carpet ) your looking for any spots that are showing bare wire and in some cases flat spots on the wire (it's a common problem because the wiring harness doesn't clear the tail lamp assembly when changing blown bulbs and more often then not the wires get crimped ( Full Answer )
2000 Chevy blazer - ABS pump is shorting out and I cannot afford to have it fixed. Where is the fuse located for this?
Open your hood. Standing in front of the vehicle look to the right. All the way on the right about halfway back there is a black box w/ a screw on top. Open that up and under the cover there is a diagram of which fuse is which. In my 2000 Chevy Blazer it is the 2nd one up in the first row of fuses (…big one, green, labeled w/ #60). . Remember if you remove it, you will be bypassing the ABS pump. Do not slam on your brakes while driving. This will lock your brakes and you will have no control over your streering while brakes are locked. Pump your brakes if you must make an iffy stop. And be especially careful on wet or slippery roads. . I just found out today that my ABS pump on my 2000 Blazer is bad. I bypassed the ABS pump by removing the fuse and have had no problems. .

Blowing Fuses . Fuses are designed and intended to protect electrical conductors [wires] from damage due to overheating resulting from too much current [measured in Amps] flowing through the wire(s). . A "short" circuit results in tremendously large amounts of current flowing through the conductor…s, which results almost instantly in generation of heat which can cause major damage to the wiring, AND be the ignition source for fire in the vehicle . . The fuse is nothing more than a tiny single strand wire sealed in a glass, plastic, or metal envelope [for safety], which melts, and thus, acting like an automatic switch, "opens" up the circuit when the current flow exceeds the capacity of the tiny wire. Most fuses do this almost instantly, although there are "slow blow" fuses designed to allow small, short term overloads. ( Full Answer )
Replace distributor cap, rotor, wires and plugs. Still missing, replace the injectors. Still missing, do a compression check. If one cylinder is lower than the others, there is a ring problem or a valve problem. At that point I would go thru the whole engine and freshen up everything.

How do you find and fix a short to the brake head and tail lights that keeps blowing the fuse in an 89 Nissan Pulsar when i turn on the headlights?
The most common overlooked short involving brake lights in any car is in the brake bulb(s) themself(s). Pull one of the brake bulbs out and count the contacts. The contacts are probably little solder balls on the bottom of the bulb, in the black, or dark blue base. If you have 2 contacts there, your… bulb has 2 filaments. Often when a bulb blows, it will short the turn signal and brake signal circuits together, right inside the bulb. (Sorry if I'm too technical here, but understanding this IS important.) Do either of your brake bulbs have a white foggy material in them ? If so, replace it, and your problem will be solved. If your brake bulb has only 1 contact, your short is either in your wiring or the socket. Remember that your car only needs one wire to get power to each light filament, since it uses the outside base of the lamp as a ground, and the return path for the current. Sure hope I saved you some $$$ here ! ( Full Answer )
Not necessarily. It can blow because the circuit was overloaded and pulling too much current. That would cause the fuse to overheat and blow.
If you have access to the fuse box, take the fuse out and look at it. An intact fuse will have a visible, unbroken, metal strip running between the terminals. A blown fuse will have a broken metal strip on the inside and usually will be visibly discolored on the inside.
Because they get tired of people picking on them because they are short. And it's harder to do things when you are short. It is generally known for them to have a chip on their shoulder or something to prove, it is not that they have a short fuse it's that they are wired with a mind set of showi…ng you up. That may appear why it seems they have a short fuse when they just want to prove you wrong. That is just a generalization as you know which seems crass, and is just towards a partial amount of the people being refereed to. I have been in arguments and fights with many of my shorter friends, and trust me, it's not that they have a short fuse at all, they are just more prepared to spark if you get what I'm going at. Their not especially angry, actually from my experience they can handle many types of anger with brute force as well as serene calmness A person can be very peaceful or embittered towards always being bagged on for their appearance. They either understand it completely or can't stand it and are embittered. It is annoying to always be called out in normal situations for your physical difference, which can create a defensive mind set, which can seem strong forceful and like a short fuse. Short people just don't like taking guff for being shorter. When I played soccer, this guy was defensive when people said he could not do anything because of his height or would rag on him for it. 1. He was being defensive but was still calm and kept his head. If anything they don't have a short fuse and can keep a cool head in hectic situations. 2. He pulled off more and got down and dirty more then any player on the field and his anger only came out when he felt he was being cheated, like any normal person. 3. Some people are embittered about what they can't change because they want something else. I.e to be taller or for people to be more tolerant(joke instead of prodi/detest/scaf/) 4. It is not whether they are short or tall if they have a short fuse, it is whether that person is embittered, they probably have a very short fuse. ( Full Answer )

Fuses do not fix themselves. They burn out, when you blow a fuse, and cannot be fixed. However, circuit breakers are designed so that they turn off the current when it exceeds a safe level, but afterwards they can be reset. This is much more convenient than using fuses. But even circuit breakers usu…ally do not reset themselves, someone has to reset them. You probably shouldn't use one. The single most important job of a fuse is to prevent the flow of electrical current when some condition occurs. That condition may be the maximum safe amount of current flowing in a circuit. It could be the maximum safe temperature around the fuse being reached. Inside an ECM or BCM (vehicle computer) fuses may be set(conducting) at the factory allowing the module to be programmed and cleared(not conducting) when the module is ready to be delivered to a customer. These firmware fuses are sometimes resetable with specialized equipment. Temperature controlled fuses, often called PTC(positive temperature coefficient) or NTC(positive temperature coefficient) are almost always resettable automatically when the temperature returns to normal. The most common fuse one thinks of is the glass tube or plastic square containing a short wire and labeled with a number representing the amps(current) it will allow to flow before that wire burns up stopping current flow. That type of fuse is a one time use protection device that sacrifices itself to protect more complex and expensive equipment it is connected too. The circuits these fuses are designed for will only blow a fuse if something elsewhere in the circuit has gone wrong. The fuse is only the indicator that something has gone wrong, it is almost never the root cause of a problem. Because the fuse takes a certain amount of time to blow after the excess current condition occurs, it can still allow damaging levels of current to reach the protected equipment for brief periods. Therefore it is very unwise to just keep replacing fuses in a circuit that blows them. It is even worse to replace the fuse with a resettable device such as a circuit breaker or automatically resettable circuit breaker. These devices do exist. They operate on the principle of a temperature controlled fuse. Higher levels of current through a fixed resistance cause increased heat production. A bimetalic strip expands and breaks contact instead of burning an internal wire. When the bimetalic strip cools, the contacts can be reconnected. The major problem that can occur with these devices is the spark produced at the contacts when they make or break. The contacts can weld themselves together with the heat from this spark, unnoticed by anyone. This results in an unprotected circuit and possible fire condition. ( Full Answer )

It depends on the type of fuse and what it's on. The old style of house fuse was fixed by pulling it out of it's socket and placing wire of the right rating (in amps) across it's contacts. In modern buildings 'contact breakers' have taken the place of fuses. They are 'fixed' by resetting the swit…ch. WARNINGS!!! Firstly, don't mess with fuses if you don't know what you're doing! And do not "fix" a fuse or contact breaker until you know what fault caused it to fail and have had that fault corrected. Also do not fix the old style fuse with wrongly rated wire. If you ignore these warnings you are risking serious consequences, including a house fire Fuses in cars and electrical or electronic equipment are a totally different matter ( Full Answer )
If too many charges flow (aka, short circuit) through the thin, metal conductor inside of the fuse, it melts, thereby making the circuit open and protecting the components from the effects of the short circuit. In your situation, the moment the short is created, the metal heats up very quickly. Sinc…e this metal has a very low melting point, any sudden, unexpected heat generated will melt the fuse, thus preventing the short from truly forming for an substantial amount of time ( Full Answer )
If a fuse box is sparking, that indicates a short circuit withinthe box. In order to fix it you must first cut the main powerswitch. But before you do that, ensure that you have a goodflashlight so that you can see what you're doing. Using aninsulated screwdriver, remove the screws on the panel face… andremove it. Remember, the board is still live so don't go stickingyour fingers in it. Visually inspect each set of wires and look for any wires that maybe charred or that have a smoky appearance on the insulatedcovering. This is a good indicator that there may be a short. Whenan appliance is activated on that circuit, electricity is pulledfrom source through the wires toward the appliance. Sinceelectricity tends to follow the shortest path, a bare or thinlyinsulated wire could cause the juice to arc (leap) across a spacetoward ground. This unauthorized pathway will result in a spark. The damaged wire will need to be repaired using electrical tape onthe exposed area. This is when you will shut the panel down and using yourflashlight, make the repair on the damaged wire. Another problem could be a loose connection. With the power off,wiggle each wire and see if it has worked loose. Tighten any loosewires. CAUTION!: The Main Electrical Panel in the average house israted for 100 amperes or more. Given that it only takes .5 ampereto kill; don't attempt to fix this problem yourself if you areunsure of your ability to do so safely. ( Full Answer )
Short blow fuse=Fast-blow fuses . Fuses are often characterized as "fast-blow" or "slow-blow" |"time-delay", according to the time they take to respond to anovercurrent condition. Fast-blow fuses (sometimes marked 'F') openquickly when the rated current is reached. Ultrafast fuses (marked'FF') are …used to protect semiconductor devices that can tolerateonly very short-lived overcurrents. Slow-blow fuses (household plugtype are often marked 'T') can tolerate a transient overcurrentcondition (such as the high starting current of an electric motor),but will open if the overcurrent condition is sustained. A fuse also has a rated interrupting capacity, also called breakingcapacity, which is the maximum current the fuse can safelyinterrupt. Generally this should be higher than the maximumprospective short circuit current though it may be lower if anotherfuse or breaker upstream can be relied upon to take out extremelyhigh current shorts. Miniature fuses may have an interruptingrating only 10 times their rated current. Fuses for low-voltagepower systems are commonly rated to interrupt 10,000 amperes, whichis a minimum capacity regulated by the electrical code in somejurisdictions. Fuses for larger power systems must have higherinterrupting ratings, with some low-voltage current-limiting "highrupturing capacity" (HRC) fuses rated for 300,000 amperes. Fusesfor high-voltage equipment, up to 115,000 volts, are rated by thetotal apparent power (megavoltamperes, MVA) of the fault level onthe circuit. Overcurrent devices installed inside of enclosures are "derated" atleast per the US NEC. This is a hold-over from the first mountingof electrical devices on the surface of slate slabs. The slate wasthe insulating material between devices mounted in air. So, ratherthan change the fuse rating, it became common to allow only 80% ofthe current value of the overcurrent device when the circuit is inoperation for 3 hours or more (continuous loading). As well as a current rating, fuses also carry a voltage ratingindicating the maximum circuit voltage in which the fuse can beused. For example, glass tube fuses rated 32 volts should never beused in line-operated (mains-operated) equipment even if the fusephysically can fit the fuseholder. Fuses with ceramic cases havehigher voltage ratings. Fuses carrying a 250 V rating can be safelyused in a 125 V circuit, but the reverse is not true as the fusemay not be capable of safely interrupting the arc in a circuit of ahigher voltage.
