Subaru Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good evening, there are three fuses that are now going to be blown. 2 30amp and 1 80 amp fuses. These are under the hood in the fuse block.
That is impossible. I literally tested a fuse yesterday and it also said it was great making me spend 4 hours trying to diagnose a problem that was just the fuse the entire time. I would just replace the fuses to be sure they are good. But those 3 are the protection fuses coming right from the battery.
Yes you can get them from any parts store. You can as a temp way to verify it is the fuse just run a piece of wire in between there just to see if it is those 3 fuses even know they look mint it sometimes is very deceiving even a skilled mechanic as myself missed one yesterday as my multi-meter told me it was good.
Also another big thing you have to make sure of is the battery is not reversed. If you put a volt meter accross the positive and negative it should say 12v if it shows - 12 volts than you have to discharge the battery. Make sure as it will fry the system if you try putting a wire in the fuse holder and the battery is discharged. If those fuses are good that is a BIG issue because the negative current got passed them into everything if you shorted out the ECM engine control module that will be a headache. That is what those are there for is if the battery is shorted to ground or spike in voltage they should 100% be blown!
Yes, slots 1(nuts) 5 and 6 the 30s get back to me asap I will help you until we resolve the problem. But I am pretty sure that baby is popped been doing this a long time and its pretty common but very good for you as it saves you thousands in computers.
I will be here.
It hits the 80 first so that is normal. Sometimes it will kill all 3 but you are good. Everything working now and your back up and running?
That is the only way to be sure. Keep the 30s as spares you never know one day you will need them.
