The under hood fuse box is in the lower right corner of the engine compartment. Its black in color, about 6"long and 3" wide. The cover is held down by a center screw nut which is removeable by hand. unthread the wing nut and pull up on the cover to open the fuse box. make sure the screw is tight when finished so no water gets inside the box.

What is the different between a 250VP fuse and a 250V fuse?

Asked by Wiki User

Manufacturers have plenty of room to write the voltage and amperage in big bold clear letters. Instead they fill it full of advertising and make the important part the reason we're looking at it as small as possible I needed reading glasses and magnifying glass. The answer described above as the best answer truly is the best answer I can't even add to that

Answer 1Fuses [and circuit breakers] are designed, intended, and installed in an electrical ciruit for one purpose, which is to protect the conductor [wire] from damage due to excess flow of current, which can be caused by overloading, or a short circuit to ground.

Unless a fuse is defective from the start, the "blowing" of a fuse is an indication of either an overload condition, or a short somewhere in the circuit.

The occasional fuse blowing described in the earlier stages suggests an intermittent short circuit.

The most recent blowing of each new fuse immediately upon installation indicates that the short circuit has gotten worse, and is no longer intermittent, but complete and continuous.

To continue to replace fuses will do nothing to correct the short circuit.

The proper way to correct the short circuit is to troubleshoot every switch, connector, conductor wire, and device in that circuit.

You will be looking for a cut or pinched wire in which an energized ["hot"] metal wire conductor is in contact with grounded body sheet metal of the vehicle, OR where a hot conductor is in contact with the metal wire of a ground conductor.

If neither of these is present, the probability is suggested that the short is internal to a switch or device.

-->>THERE IS A RECALL!!!!! PLEASE READ!<<--

That fuse also feeds the notorious 'cruise control cancel switch' which screws into the brake master cylinder under the hood. The diaphragm in the switch will fail, allowing brake fluid to leak into the electrical parts causing a resistive short. So far, you've been lucky that the fuse is blowing, instead of the wiring catching fire. To see if that is your problem, simply unplug the switch and see if the fuse keeps blowing.

If it is located where the 2001 Grand Am is, it is in the engine compartment and the fuse block is located on the drivers side, near the battery. It should be fuse number 42- Back-up Lamps, Brake Transaxle, Shift interlock.

Well mine is under the hood, in the big fuse box there. Its the Dome fuse, a yellow 20 fuse. I'm not sure if this will be the same in yours. I've read it was in the drivers door area (between the door and the steering wheel and a blue 15 fuse) but not in mine.

the fuse box is under the hood on the right side in a little black box you have to pop the top off to get inside it No... that is the Power Distribution Center. The Fuse box is located under the driver side dash board near the parking break. There will be a panel that you need to remove, it has two large plastic screws holding it in place that can be easily turned with your finger nail.

It is in a black box under the hood on the drivers side. You most likely will find a blue fuse blown. If the fuses are good you might have the same problem I had. I had a broken wire in the wiring bundle under the hood. The Ford garage found repaired it for around $150.00.

Which one is the radio fuse?

Asked by Wiki User

I do not know what year Honda you have, but my fuse was on the passenger side. On the end of the dash , if you open the door, there is an access panel to get to some fuses. There should be a diagram on the panel telling you where the radio fuse is located.

Would the ignition switch control the dash lights?

It sends a power to the starter relay/solenoid to engauge the starter. Know that the ignition switch is not what you put the key in and turn. That is the lock assembly. The ignition switch is located lower down on the steering column.

What does it mean when the turn signal light blinks fast?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A fast flashing light means your turn signal flasher is about shot. It's a simple fix, usually under $6 for a new flasher, depending on the vehicle. Just pull the old one out and stick a new one in, it's just like a big round (or square) fuse. If you can't find the flasher, turn the signal on and it will be clicking away in the fuse panel under the dash.

Where is the fuse for the CD player in Honda accord?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The 2001 Accord has 3 fuse boxes. The interior boxes are located on the driver's and pasenger side of the dashboard. The underhood box is on the right(passenger) firewall. The fuse you want is a 20A located in the #5 position in the underhood box. There are spare fuses located in the #9 and 10 position that you can substitue. All the covers are labeled(the one you want is labeled "Stop". Use a good light source. Press the two clips to free the cover on the underhood box. Check the bulbs - a transient volatage spike(intermittent short) can blow all of them at once without blowing the fuse. Jim

Where is the fuse box on a 63 Ford Falcon 2-door sedan located exactly?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is attached to the backside of the headlight switch. If you look up under the dashboard at the headlight switch you should be able to see the fuses.

There is a clip that can be removed, then it can be pulled off the side of the switch, however the easiest method is to remove the entire switch.

With one hand reach up under the dash, and follow the switch to where it meets the dashboard. You should on one side find a small metal button. Push that button in while pulling on the headlight switch knob and the knob should pull out of the dash. Then unscrew the trim bezel for the switch and remove the switch from under the dash. Now you should be able to easily access the fuses.

Why would a taillight fuse keep blowing?

Asked by Wiki User

You might check the Amps size of the fuse. A lot of times, if you are using a fuse with too little Ampage, it can cause the fuse to blow. Your owner's manual should tell the proper size of fuse for that specific circuit.
