I have a start error on the dash of the van. Changed #7 fuse…

Customer Question
I have a start...

I have a start error on the dash of the van. Changed #7 fuse under the and as soon as I turn the key to the run position it blows again. I had just started and maybe a mile down the road when I seen all the lights on the dash. I also noticed that the trans went into limp mode and would not shift. This has happened every now and again, but I just pull over shut off the engine and start it back up and its fine. The limp mode not the lights on the dash. So I pulled over and turned it off and it would not start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Turned off the fan and didn't push the horn. Its a 2004 and have not had any issues. I have owned it for over 4 years and put 40,000 miles on it

I didn't notice the fuse blown until after the van would not start. I never noticed the horn not to work. Fuse #7 on the steering column. Dodge Sprinter 2004 with a 2.7l
Dodge Mechanic: Randall C, ASE Master Technician replied 2 years ago

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
On the steering column. The fuse is for the horn and air recirculation solenoid. Now it don't work. It was working
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have been reading about a wiring issue where the main harness wears thru the sheathing and rubs the wire causing a short. The problem is I don't know where to start. I am mechanically inclined and a quick learner. Thanks again

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The problem is either a short to ground on the circuit somewhere in the harness or high current draw in one of the components. This circuit pwoers the SKIM module, horn, rear defrost, mass airflow sensor, the horn, trans, and circulation pump relays.

IF you unplug the mass airflow sensor and turn the key on does the fuse blow?
