Check under the hood, most GMC's and Chevy's have a large fuse box under the hood that contain the large fuses.
#117 of 444 Electric Power Problems
Dec 15, 2007 (9:18 pm)
I have a 1991, S10. I turned on my radio, it went dead like it didn't have enough power. I push my horn and it sounds like a relay behind the dash is buzzing, the horn does not honk. My dome light wont come on when the door is open but it will slightly light up when I push the horn or cigarette lighter in. Is it possessed? Or is there a simple solution to the problem?
#118 of 444 95 Blazer fuse issue
Dec 20, 2007 (11:29 am)
I have a 95 Chvey Blazer that keeps blowing the 20 amp fuse for the dash board panel. Half the gauges go along with the speedometer and if running at night with the "lights on" indicator buzzes continuously. However other important operating functions that also stop.is proper transmission shifting, and direct charging of the system by the alternator. If this fuse blows the car runs only on direct battery power. This issue seems to happen only during cold or wet weather or when the engine is cold. However if I idle run the car warming it up, for a while hopefully, without draining the battery I can put a new fuse in and it won't blow and the car runs fine. Brought it to a Chevy dealer and they too are at a loss. Thanks

Are you talking about the lower trim panel just above the trans in the middle if the dash just below the AC controls?
Or the panel on the driver side under the steering wheel?
The 97 Jimmy has the automatic trans shifter on the floor between the 2 seats. Just in front of that on the dash is the cigarette lighter and utility outlets with the AC above that and the radio above that. When you remove the center lower dash panel you get the plastic vents from the heater right behind it and the lighter.
I must be blind because I just can't seem to find the turn signal flasher for the life of me.

The turn signal flasher should be just to the left of the cig. lighter . There will be 2 canisters side by side. Thats where my 95 is & Chilton does not make any refferance to any differance with floor shift or air. So to my best knowleged that is where it is. mags

Obviously there is an amp spike or short intermintant. The easiest to check first and most likely the cause is the alternator. Even though it is charging, there may be an intermitant short at the internal regulator. On your alternator there is a plug with some small wires leading to it. Next time you think that the fuse should blow, disconect that plug to your alternator prior to starting the vehicle. This will turn your check engine light on and prevent charging, but its just a test. If the fuse doesn't blow, I would be very suspicious of an intermitant short in the regulator. Ok, try this a couple of times. Don't reconect that plug until the engine is off. By the way, is this fuse #4 20amp ? If this doesn't work, post more info such as engine size, production date, fuse # location, auto or manual trans, and I'll give you some other ideas you can try. Good luck.

I just wanted to add one bit of info. The fuse will blow when I turn the key to the first notch that sets the panel lights on (i.e. check engine light,air bag seat belt light etc). Also the problem is intermittent and doesn't happen all the time cold and wet weather seem to aggrevate the problem otherwise everthing works fine.. The Chevy dealer is at a loss! Can this still be an alternator problem?? Yes it is fuse #4 Gauges. Auto Trans 1995, 4.3 liter voretec V6. Thanks

Not sure how competant you are, but here are some things you can try. I'm assuming that this is a fusible link, not wire that is burning up. You have a dead short. If it is a fusible link, the amps are very high to burn it up.
You were not clear on fuse number, location, or if it is a fusible link or not. Here's some advise. What ever is on that circut, that you know of, un plug it. There may also be something like a cigerette lighter or dome light that isn't even mentioned on a wiring diagram connected to that circut. Your ABS may also be part of that circut, unplug the plug at the ABS unit. If the circut that is shorted is a 30amp or less, purchass a 30amp circut breaker and wire it in for temporary testing. If the circut breaker trips whith everthing unplugged, it is either shorted wiring, or something that is on that circut you don't know about. Recommend an auto electrical shop at this point. If your lucky, and the problem has gone away with the various devices unplugged. Start plugging them in one at a time until the short re-apears. You have then isolated at least what system is causing the problem, and can either leave it unplugged, or trouble shoot it from there.
From the things you mentioned, most common are a shorted ABS unit, shorted blower motor for the heater, or a shorted cigerett lighter if it is on that circut.Good luck with it.
