Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello I will help you with your question,
Which fuse does it blow?
Which ignition fuse? What is the name or location? There are three that start with ignition in the name? What is the value of the fuse?
OK, so it is the large amperage one in the underhood fuse block.
It only blows if you turn the controls on? Can you unplug the blower motor and see if it still blows?
Any damage or aftermarket parts installed on the car?
OK, is the blower on high? What about if you put the blower on off? Does it still blow when you move the mode and temp controls? AC compressor button is off?
Do you know how to remove the console and radio. HVAC controls?
Do you know the build date of the vehicle?
So if you have the blower motor you get the blown fuse, how about if the resistor is unplugged?
For the early build
The harness runs from the fuse in the underhood block to the ignition switch then to the instrument panel fuse block and on to the controls. Not a problem in that part of the circuit.
Then it goes to the resistor pack in the blower case next to the motor OR straight through the IP fuse block out to the motor.
Pull the connectors off the back of the IP fuse block and look for any burning or melting there, we can work back up.
If you need to save fuses wire up a headlamp bulb with two wires, pull the fuse out and put one wire in each fuse socket to replace the fuse. When the light is on the short is active so you wiggle, pull and unplug until the light goes out and then you know you are where the short is.
Let me what you see when you remove the fuse connectors on the back of the block
No problem, I am here most of the time so just post to this thread when you want to continue and I will be notified.
