hi getting it
i check all the small fuses and they were all good , so do u know what eles i can do or which fuse it could cause me to lose power to car
are u still there?
i also need to know what the small fuses are or what there for?
the fuses under the hood ar the major ones for the car
need to chec the fuse box next to the battery
f15 16 17 18 wre headlamp fuses under the hood fuse box next to the battery
i check all the small ones and they are all good, and i dont know how to check the lg. square black ones to know if there no good,
do you have a ohm meteror a volt meter?
can you see the big fuses with a flashlight look at the top and see if it is blown but the best way is with a voltmeterr that has a ohm meter
You can buy one for cheap at radio shack
hows that work
pull the fuse out and check the fuse male end with a ohmmeter and should have no resistance or should read 0
you should be able to see the fuse with a flashlight on the top should be a window
dose work for the black ones u cant see though
how did you check the small fuses you need a test light or a voltmeter
are you checking under the hood by the battery?
those are the major fuses that when not working nothing works
what wire did you touch to ground?
the radio wire?
i check the regular ones and they are all good, as for the blck ones i dident check those ones
under the hood fuse f40 for the radio
under the dash is fuse f36
check at spot f40 fuse box next to the battery and under the dash check fuse f36
but all those are ok
then you have somthing else going on what does not work?
If all the fuses are ok then you could have melted a wire or blown a component that is why you disconnect the battery before doing electrical wiring
in order to diag you will need a voltmeter or a test light
what does not work?
head lamp, key switch, heater,turn signals,horn....
you may have blown the ign switch
do fuses 15 16 17 and 18 ok at the fuse box next to the battery?
those are the sm. ones
and if all the fuses are ok under the dash?
then I would check the ign switch
need a voltmeter or test light do you have one
need to get one to diag
or have someone help you who has one
when i get one how do i check it
check power to the switch and see if power is coming out of the switch with the key on
power in is the red wire
when i turn the key on nothing happens
that is because the ign switch is bad
It is pretty cheap just replace it
is that the problum
