Best Answer

The fuse powers the shift lock out, when you step on the brake it powers an soliniod that allows the shifter to move. you possibly have no brake lights also.

Try looking at the fuse that corresponds to the things that are not working. Take the actual fuse out of the fuse box, and look at it, examine it. You will be able to tell immediately if the fuse is blown or not by the way it looks. If it is blown it will have some gray matter or black in there.....or the fuse will look messed up, or both. Good luck to ye!

It is likely that there is a blown fuse. Open the fuse panel as per your instruction manual. On the fuse itself, you will see what looks like a tiny metal band. If that band is not connected (i.e. the fuse is blown) it will need to be replaced.Otherwise it could be a short circuit somewhere.

Could a fuse cause the drivers door on a 2001 Honda Civic EX not to lock either manually or with an automatic locker?

if it neither works manually or electricaly then the hardware inside the door has become detatched. pull the inside door panel off, roll the window up and you should be able to see all of the linkage. the clip that links the pieces together is inexpensive. if the door lock actuator is frozen in one position then it can also be accessed this way. It is not the fuse. You can lock it manually with a blown fuse. If it will not lock then the lock mechanism is broken, in some way. Real Answer It is not the fuse or lock mechanism, etc..., I had this problem when I first got my Civic, all you have to do is pull the door handle as if opening your door and either push the lock down or hit the autolock, ( you must pull the door handle out while locking) and this is the only way of manually lockin any Honda.

How do you tell if fuse is blown on radio?

If your radio will not turn on at all then it is probably the fuse. Some speakers also have fuses too, if it wasn't a fuse then the speakers would probably sound torn. To check the fuse it depends on your car, look in the manual on how to change the specific fuse. Many modern cars have fuse boxes under the glove box on either the passenger or driver side. The fuse should look somewhat like a flat, transparent house plug, in the middle of the transparent plastic there is normally a connected wire and if it is broken the fuse is blown. If you have a fuse box you can compare with another good fuse or just look up an image of blown auto fuse.
