Could be burning it at such a slow rate not showing smoke Could be leaking on hot part of engine and burning off How much is it consuming?
go to a checker, autozone or auto parts store they will retrieve the codes that turned ur check engine light on, and give u tips to fix it or just re list them on here i will help you find the root cause.
AnswerFind the location of the fuse that is burning. And check to see if the fuse that is burned out is the correct wattage for that spot.
Organic matter convertible into heat, directly by burning or indirectly by biogastification
The blower fan motor is worn out.
The component used to protect a LED from burning up is called a resistor.
Itr only takes a small amount of oil to get some smoke, white smoke is coolant, gray smoke would be oil, and black smoke would be fuel.
To fix this on my car I thought I needed a new starter but when I went to take the starter out the bolt holding the positive cable on the starter wasn't very tight so I thought maybe that's it. Well that was the problem so I took back the $160 starter and the fuse never blew again.
If your batteries were in series the total voltage would be 6 volts, and it the bulbs were in series you would need a resistor to keep them from burning out. In order to know how many ohms the resistor would need to be you would have to know the wattage of the bulbs, or the resistance of the bulbs. If you don't know the best thing to do is use a variable resistor. Then you can adjust it or the brightness that you want.
If you don't add a resistor to drop the additional voltage, you run the risk of burning up the LEDs.
the reason blower does not work on all speeds, is the fan blower motor resistor. The resistor is a 4-5 step series circuit, 1 resistor is added for each reduction in speed. If one burns out then so will all speeds below it. The "high" circuit usually has a separate fuse and bypasses the resistor altogether.
Need to replace the blower motor resistor which is located just under the passenger side dash. 2 bolts on either side will remove it. Cost of replacement resistor is about $20.
MSN Autos reported the blower motor problem as a resistor failure on the blower motor. In plain English, this means that the resistor on the fan motor which tells it to slow down to a lower speed than "max" is burnt out and no longer completes the circuit. If your heater is on & the fan isn't blowing, it's like a toaster in your dash, with no toast in it. It'll just smell like burning. Apparently it's a cheap fix. The resistor just has to be replaced.
You'll probably smell that burning smell if your gas is burning right, try putting about a cup of sugar into your gas tank as a catalyst.WRONG!! Do not put sugar in your gas tank! This will likely ruin your engine!!
The most likely cause is a failed blower motor resistor. When they burn out, they leave you with only the high speed fan setting no matter where you set the switch. They're about $20 usually, and can be purchased from any Dodge/Chrysler dealer, and some auto parts stores. It's a super-simple do-it-yourself repair, all you need is a screwdriver. Click through the Related Question below for instructions on how to replace it.
They get noisy, squeal and vibrate. Also if you keep burning out the blower motor resistor, that is a sign the blower motor is on its way out.
The filament of a light bulb isn't like a resistor ... it is a resistor. The only difference from the ones on circuit boards is the it's designed to operate at a much higher temperature. So hot that it glows. The glass envelope is there to prevent oxygen from getting in and promptly burning it. When the filament becomes too hot it breaks breaking the current that was lighting it in the first place. That is why the light bulb "burns" out.
The only dangers that might arise from driving a vehicle with a failing power steering pump is burning up/breaking the belt that is driving the pump IF and ONLY IF the pump seizes up. The other problem you might have is the increased effort to steer the car. As long as the increased effort while driving is not a problem you can at least drive it to a service station to get it repaired.
those trucks had common problem of the blower motor resistor going bad or burning out and it would only work on high speed. the resistor is located under the passenger side dash by the blower motor. hope this helps
Make sure you have only about 8 volts going to it not a full 12. There is a resistor wire that should cut the voltage.
A circuit does need resistance but not necessarily a resistor. without any resistance a circuit will be considered a "short circuit" and you power source will most likely overheat. Resistance can be created in millions of different ways. This could be something such as an or any other light source but also a module such as a capacitor resistor or diode. To get to you're question more directly a circuit needs resistance to keep from shorting out. A specific module(such as an LED) would need a resistor to lower the voltage so to a point where the module can accept the power without burning out.
That's to avoid the diode from burning out. When it is forward biased, the resistance is extremely low; so even a small voltage can produce a large current, and that can quickly damage it.
First dissable the air bag system, open the glove compartment, squeeze the side in to release the glove box stops and lower glove box. You will see the Blower Motor Resistor directly behing the glove box. There will be two pig tails (one vehicle harness, one resistor), remove pig tails, remove two screws to free resistor. Replace resistor, reverse removal procedure. Done. Not sure, but the local Dodge dealer just quoted me a $945 price to do the replacement. I was told the dash and part of the AC system must come out to get to two bolts. I had the resistor replaced 3/07 because the motor would only work on high and it just now started to only work on high again, 11/07. Dealer said the motor was pulling more amps then it should and this was burning out the resistor. Resistor was garenteed for 12 mnts but since I opted to NOT replace the fan motor they said they could not garentee the resistor again.
One way to look at the purpose of a resistor is as a device built to dissipateelectrical energy. Some (but usually not all) of the energy of the current througha circuit is always dissipated when it flows through a resistor. The energy lostleaves the resistor in the form of heat.The number of joules of electrical energy lost and heat dissipated by the resistor is(amperes of current through the resistor)2 x (ohms of resistance) x (seconds of time it continues)If you work with resistors often, or see several of them inside an old radio, you noticethat there are physically big ones and physically small ones. The size of the resistorisn't related to the number of ohms of resistance it has. The physical size is relatedto how fast it can dissipate energy (heat) without melting or burning up. A biggerresistor has more air around it, so it can get rid of heat faster.
You are looking at the wrong fuse. The fuse you wish to check is the blower fuse.If the fuse is ok, these cars have a problem with the wire going to the resistor block burning up. The main power going into the resistor is probably burned off of the connector. The resistor sits inside the vent system under the passengers side dash.
