SOURCE: 98 stratus won't start

Check the fuel shutoff valve. to see if it is on. press the reset button to do this. if it stays on. The answer could be pinched wires (a short) from the fuse wiring back towards the shutoff valve. if the valve shuts off try checking for current with a test light. if no current . The valve is bad. it seems like a short or open circuit on the fuel system wiring.

It appears that it is part of the fuel pump circuit, so I would concentrate on wiring harness & connector at fuel pump, clean it real good, and apply dielectric grease to the connection, as well as the fuel pump relay, connector & harness.

hmm. lt look like there are poor joints in your wiring specially the groung wire. check the diagram of your auto. check the unit diagram for which the fuse blows. usually the fuse blow when there is a short circuit. if you look around you will find it.
good luck

The fuse it doing it's job, you have a short ( Wire that is connected to a ground, that draws too much power )

If you have an electrical schematic ( Repair manual ) find out which wires are connected to that fuse and check them for any chaffing, cuts, unnesassary twists, or corrosion.

If you have a ohm-meter, isolate the system ( by disconnecting the fuse, and other connections. Then check for any resistance on wires that should not be connected ( because you disconnected them ) by having one Lead on the wire's connector and the other meter-lead on your car's frame. A good wire will not have continuity if it is isolated.

If a fuse has blown, it will not fix anything

No such thing as a bad fuse,educate yourself


Once a transmission slips, it is done & has to come

out & be rebuilt,your mechanic knows that & wants to

Well it's temping to put in biggfer fuses as the problem gets worse but the size of the fuses are to keep you from burning things up so you've from your probem with a 30 amp smoke test. The raditor fan wire is melted somewhere in the wire harnes to the wire for the trck lock or even key on circirts. the likly place to look is inside the stering collum. It takes the skills of removing the steering whel and the lcok plate and even then thats does'nt have to be where the problem is. You need to look under the dash after you remove the covers and use you nose to smeel for the burnt wiring and open up any thing the smells like it's been hot and anything the appers melted together. once a harness is found melted you need to seragete all the wires in the loom but don't cut the wires justy seaparte them. once you think you've got then all pulled apart so no bear wires touch each other or any meal parts put in the correct size fuses and see if you can connect the battery with out a spark. if you can you may then start checking to see what works and what does'nt.. This all sounds like too much work or too hard to do then you'll need to pay someone theat knows alot about car wiring problems to do it for you. I'll been doing this kind of work for the last 20 years and a'm alawys finding new things that are fried and burnt up. We all charge by the hour to do this work so the most experieced mechanic that works on cars like yours will probly find and fix the problem the fastest. therefore they may charge more per hour but their likly to get it right quicker and it'll stay fixed after they fix it.. This is the most likly kind of work to go sour after it's fixed cause they might miss a circuit that you use and they did'nt try. and as soon as it burns again it's back to the drawing board and if big fuses are use the fire can take the whole car.

My '05 Dodge Caravan is having power door lock problems. Presently they do not function. Any thoughts?


Under the hood on the drivers side is a fuse panel. Remove the top and locate the IOD fuse. Remove the fuse and look to make sure it's not blown. If it's ok simply replace it and locks should return to normal.
If the fuse is blown you will need another 10 amp mini fuse to replace it.

Both my clock & cd player have stopped working. Could that be fuse related?


Yes, usually both of those and the cigarette lighter/power outlet are on the same fuse. Check the fuse box, you should have anywhere between a 10 to 20 amps fuse labeled Accessories (usually a 15 though but there are exceptions) that will be burnt out. Replace it and you should be good to go. If it does not fix the problem, then you have more major electrical problem in the car. If so, just write me back and we'll see if we can do anything without getting it checked out by your local mechanic or dealer.

Blown Fuses - Dead 1998 Ford Escort


Try changing the fuel filter first we always change them when servicing the fuel pump anyway,its easy and cheap,if that doesnt solve the problem you will have to perform an amperage draw test on the fuel pump to insure your not replacing a good pump. Check the fuel pump relay and inertia switch and wiring also.Although possible its unlikley the fuel pump would blow a fuse consistantly without displaying any driveability problems.There may also be another component running off the fuel pump fuse have your mechanic pull a wiring diagram to find out. Good hunting keep me informed
