Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Toyota corolla T sport 1.8 and have just had the engine rebuilt but it keeps blowing the 15 amp audio fuse under the bonnet, have tried putting a big amp fuse in and still blows. Car starts but then with 5 minutes audio fuse blows and kills the engine and won't start again, can anybody help?

Hi,
Who installed the engine? If you did, check all the Grounds/Earths under the hood/bonnet. If the mechanic/shop did, take it back and have them fix it.

    Yeah the garage have has it back twice but it still keeps happening so thought I'd ask on here before it goes back in the garage incase it was a simple problem that I could have fixed. Thanks for the reply bud.

    Is this an aftermarket audio system with an amplifier? If so, they may have forgotten/missed/broken the lead that may run directly to the battery, which is how some upgraded systems are wired. TD

    No buddy it is the standard audio system in the car, everything is standard about the car, hasn't been messed with.

On top of the cover of the fuses it will tell you what that fuse was for. Odds are whatever it is, is shorting out and will need to be replaced.

Remove the battery from the car and charge it up first and then re install it.Some newer vehicles will disable the fuel pump if the battery voltage is low,even if it is jump started ,as it activates the anti theft system.

My 1984 corolla cs interior light and in-dash clock does not work and cannot locate the fuse to check. The fuse box near the bonnet release has no fuse for this and all other fuses are fine, radio,...


On the driver -side kick panel are the fuses located. Take out the panel,check 7.5 dome,15 amp cigarett lighter and 15amp tail. If it pop off again,you have a short ckt.

Blown headlight fuse on 1998 Toyota Corolla.


When a fuse blows (regardless of the car make or model) there are two reasons this may happen:
1) There is a short circuit

2) The wrong fuse was installed


On both cases, the recommendation is that you:
1) Find the fuse box (on most Toyota vehicles it is located in the kick panel to the left of the driver's side.)

2) Remove the fuse box cover and look inside. There should be a diagram telling you which fuse is which.

3) Find and remove the fuse that serves each headlight (there should be one for each. They are both 15 amps or simply have a number 15 on the fuse). If your vehicle is equiped with fog lights, you will see a total of 4 fuses in the fuse box, labled as follows:

Head RH Head LH
Head RL Head LL

4) Inspect the fuses. Make sure the number matches the number in the diagram of the box (if no diagram on the box, then look in your owner's manual, but all I've seen have the diagram)

5) Replace any of the blown fuses WITH THE SAME amp rating fuse (15 Amp). If any of the fuses is not 15 amps, then replace with a 15 Amp.

IMPORTANT: Do not replace with a higher rating!!!!

A blown fuse may be caused by a short circuit. There is a real threat of ELECTRICAL FIRE if a short circuit is not caught in time. This is precisely what the fuses are for.

5) If after replacing the fuse with the correct 15 amp fuse you still have the same problem (i.e. you see the fuse blow when you turn on the headlights) turn the headlights off and consult your repair shop.

Cheers!
