Why does my ignition fuse 1988 Chevy?
Due to a over or underloaded system, ensure that the correct rated fuse is installed, over or under amperage can cause a fuse to be blown.

Answer . \nNot sure why blowing but if you can look in owners manual or chiltons to see what else is on the same circuit for example fuse #2 may have fuel pump and cigar lighter on the same circuit and if something metal falls into cigar lighter it will blow the fuse each time a new fuse is put in. Hope it helps.. Answer . \nAlso on my 1989 Chevy 2500 I had the same problem and I had a short in some wiring running along the driver side frame rail by the fuel filter.
I downloaded a FREE owners manual from mygmlink.com. If that is not the correct address there is a link on chevrolet.com to the GM site where you have to register and can download the owners manual with the fuse box diagram.\n Answer \n. \nHey Jeannine===Get an owners manual from AUTOBOOKSONLINE.COM GoodluckJoe

How do you replace the ignition switch in a 1988 Chevy Corsica automatic with tilt and cruise after you have pulled the steering wheel?
I have a 1993 Corsica and yours is probably similar. Disconnect the battery. Why? Airbag explosion! After you remove the Airbag if equipped (usually 4 bolts located on the back of the steering wheel holds it on) Look at the steering shaft for a E clip. It is a clip that sets around the shaft and has two holes in it. It takes a special E Clip removal tool. After this you can remove the metal ring that keeps the shaft from turning when switch is turned off. The switch assembly is held in with a star hear screw. Some are hidden behind a key alarm switch. Mine was white and it just pulls out. When you pull it out you will see the retaining screw hidden behind it. After this you can pull the key cam out.
it is in the fuse box right under your left leg up under the dash.
Can't start 1989 Chevy Suburban with the key only by directly wiring starter is there a fuse link from the ignition wiring to the starter?
Answer . \nGenerally the problem is either a defective neutral safety switch or a bad ignition switch (not ignition key lock).
Answer . \nECM means engine control module (the computer), and there are two fuses, ECM A and ECM B. I think if either one blows, the engine stops running, so this must be a very annoying problem.\n. \nYou may have a bad wiring harness by the computer, which is located just in front of the passenger door, but I suspect it is more likely a bad sensor or wiring that goes to one of the sensors in the engine. I do not have a wiring diagram, so I do not know exactly which sensors are powered from ECMB.
Answer . \nIt depends on what year. For 72 and earlier (in the dash) follow this.\n. \n1. Turn ignition switch to off position and leave the key in the switch.\n2. Disconnect the battery.\n3. Take a small dia. paper clip and insert it into the small hole in the \nface of the ignition switch. You will feel a small button that you depress.\n4. While depressing the button, turn the key to the accessory position\n(counter clockwise) and using the key remove the cylinder.\n5. You can now remove the bezel by unscrewing it CCW. \n6. This will allow you to remove the ignition switch from the dash and \ndisconnect the wire harness plug from the rear of the switch.\n. \nI hope this helps someone. From an old gear head.
Answer . \nYour ECM should be located on the passenger side of the car. remove the glove box and it should be on the outide wall. I am not sure that there is an acual fuse for this. but that is where the ECM is located. i hope that this is helpful.
When plugging in the ignition control module the plastic case broke and know you need to now were which color wire goes were on a 1988 350 Chevy truck?
The green wire is the negative and the yellow is the positive. It should be marked pos and neg on the module.
Answer The Haynes manual has wiring diagrams in it. The wiring diagrams given for the 1989 Chevrolet Celebrity 2.5L F.I. are incorrect. Also note that Auto Zone told me the 1989 didn't come with the 2.5.
What could be the problem when your headlights taillights and ignition don't work after the negative battery cable melted in an 80's model Chevy truck but all the fuses and lights are good?
Answer . It could be the fusable link. You might need to search to find it, but look in a haynes or chilton manual or ask a dealer where it is.
Answer . \nRemove the steering wheel. (you will need a steering wheel puller)\n. \nRemove the turn signal switch. It is not necessary to completely remove the switch from the column. Pull the switch rearward far enough to slip it over the end of the shaft, but do not pull the harness out of the column.\n. \nTurn the lock to Run.\n. \nIf necessary, remove the ignition key.\n. \nIf equipped, remove the buzzer switch assembly.\n. \nRemove the lock retaining screw and remove the lock cylinder.
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nA motor manual.\n. \nbuy a chilton manual for 88 blazers you can find them in any parts store for about 20.00$ they will have a fuse box diagram.
Your 1990 Chevy lumina keeps blowing the DIS 10 amp fuse when i turn the ignition on. someone please help me?
If the 1990 Chevy Lumina is blowing the DIS 10 Amp fuse when theignition is on, check to make sure that all wires coming from thisfuse are grounded properly. Also check to make sure the starter iswired properly. There could also be a loose wire in the dash nearthe ignition.
I used a 7/32 socket but it's probably a metric. The heads are really soft so don't over-torque them.
The fuse block itself is labeled as to what each fuse is for, however most fuses do double duty for 2 or more items not listed on the block. If you reach up at the back of the block there is a release lever that allows the fuse block to swing down for easier viewing. For those items not marked I often wind up taking out each fuse one at a time and determine which one is blown and replace it. Replace fuses with a fuse of the proper value. If you have a Chilton manual it has a description of the fuse block in it.
If it has a distriburetor take the cap off and look inside it, it's right in front and it's the thing with all the wires plugged into it.
The fuse box is on the side of the dash on the passenger side of the car. remove the cover plate and you will find your fuses.
a short in the wiring system A blown fuse is caused by a short or an over current condition.
How do you hot wire a 1988 Chevy Celebrity The ignition key is stuck in the accessory position and I need to start it and get it to the garage for a new ignition switch?
With the key stuck in the accessory position the steering wheel is locked and the gearshift is locked in the park position. Perhaps you should consider having a locksmith change the key cylinder where it is, or else have it towed to the garage.
Well the thing is That the car Cranks but I does not start or turn over. I traced it to the 15 amp ignition fuse in the dash fuse box which was broken. I replaced the bad fuse and the Metro started but with in 2 minutes the fuse broke again. I have no clues I have found plenty of clues on -ine but but no answers. Thanks, Metro Owner. Answer because a Chevy metro has a 30 amp ignition system. It indicates 15 AMPS on the Fuse Panel!!
Follow the 2 pin connector from the top of the coil located on the driver side front of the distributor. It should lead to a 2 pin connector, as well as a 4 pin connector. This is the ignition control module.
Under sterring colum right on fire wall. some are hard to remove use niddle nose pliers.
Where is the internal fuse panel on a 1988 Chevy Blazer K5 Silverado - I need to change the cigarette lighter and internal cab light fuses Thanks?
the fuse block on that should be located under the dash right above your right foot.
The fan relay and its fuse are on the radiator support bracket on the right side of the car.
under the hood on the passenger side on the fender well inside a plastic cover
The fuse for the turn signals is on the fuse block. The fuse block is below the dash to the right of the steering column.
This diagram can help you to locate any issues that might come up.Make sure to do a quick image search to find them.
You will often find a diagram of the fuse box for the 1988 ChevyCheyenne in inside cover for the fuse box. This fuse box is locatedon the driver's side of the vehicle under the dash. The cigarettelighter fuse is generally marked as ACC.
remove instrument cluster, remove 2 screws holding switch in, push switch about 1 inch straight back to clear mounting bracket. pull straight out.
I assume this question is about the mechaincal part of the keyswitch. Remove the plastic cover under the steering column and keyswitch. Turn the ignition key to run (not start). Underneath the keyswitch, there is a small round hole. Push something like a paperclip in the hole and the ignition keyswitch will pull right out. If this question is about the electrical switch part of the keyswitch, there is a single Phillips screw holding the switch in place, just remove the screw to remove the keyswitch. www.driftmotion.com
There is no way to show you a fuse block here. The fuse block is on the bottom of the dash to the right of the steering column. You can find a diagram of it in one of the repair manuals such as Chilton or Haynes.
Fuse "Blowing" . A blowing fuse is an indication that there is a short circuit condition in that circuit.. A short circuit condition is the result of a "hot" wire or component in a circuit coming into contact with another wire or component which is "grounded.". Grounded means that a metallic component is somewhere connected to the ground post [terminal] on the battery.
I have a 1988 GMC dayvan and bought a Chiltons manual ( Haynes manual ) it has fusebox information in the electrical section. Hope this helps, if not , email me. Larry
Under the windshield directly on top of the motor. Its tucked in a little far back but you are able to see it for sure. Its rectangular with three identical ignition coils right next to eachother. All of the spark plug wires run into it. You cant miss it.
Leave it to the pros you have to key the cylinder when it is replaced and it involves tiny springs and tumblers if you mess up you key will not work
On the V6 engine, it is under the ignition coils on the top rear of the engine. O the 4 cylinder, it is bolted to the top of the engine cover, on the driver side. There is an electrical connector plugged into it. More info here... www.JustAutoRepair.com
Fuses That "Blow" Repeatedly Without being able to "hands on" troubleshoot the circuit served by the repeatedly blowing fuse, no one can identify the specific cause/defect which is causing your problem. Therefore, the following generic answer can be applied to any electrical circuit , whether in a vehicle, or in a building, or whether alternating current [AC] or direct current [DC]. Fuses [and Circuit Breakers] are safety devices designed and installed in electrical circuits TO PROTECT the conductors [wires] and other components from short circuit conditions and/or overload conditions which cause an extremely large flow of electrical current [measured in Amperes], which causes overheating of the conductors that results in damage to the insulation and the conductors. And in a worst case scenario, the probability of a FIRE which could destroy the vehicle, house, or other structure in which the circuit is located. When a fuse or Circuit Breaker [and replacement fuses, or "tripping" Circuit Breakers] "blow," especially if it happens repeatedly, is an indication of an UNSAFE CONDITION in that circuit, usually a short. The fuse or circuit breaker is doing what it was designed, intended, and installed to do, protect the conductors and components of the circuit which it serves. The proper "fix" is for a qualified technician, who knows what he or she is doing , to troubleshoot the involved circuit, find and identify the defect, and make proper repair [s], BEFORE replacing the fuse again [with the properly sized fuse or before resetting a circuit breaker]. Some ignorant few people will suggest installing a larger fuse or breaker to solve the problem, BUT that will only increase the hazard, not correct it. Do not follow "bad" advice by installing a larger fuse in a misguided attempt to correct the problem. To install an over-sized fuse would almost guarantee damage to the wiring and an electrical system fire.

It's on the passenger side on the side of the dash. Open the passenger door and you will see the plastic cover with a plastic knob that you will need to to to the left to open.
varies by car, give me make model and year and i can get more precise
Sounds like a short in the wires somewhere. you will need a diagram & have to trace them.
The fuse for the radio is in the fuse block, and is marked radio. The fuse block is on the bottom of the dash to the right of the steering column.
Gap is 0.2 - 0.4mm or 0.008 - 0.015 in, for 1987 and 1988 ER, Metro and Base models. A quick check at rock auto shows all the usual ignition components except points, so I'm guessing there is some disambiguation here. The previous answer may well be correct if the distributor has a set of points in it.
If your car has the 2.8 L engine the coil is on the ignition module which is located on the front of the engine below the exhaust manifold. Remove the two spark plug wires noting their positions so you can put them back in the correct place. Remove the two small screws that hold the coil in place, remove the old coil and install the new coil. Replace the two spark plug wires. If your car has the 2.5L four cylinder engine the coils are bolted to the ignition module which is on the back of the engine below the intake manifold. Remove the two spark plug wires noting where they go back. Take the two small screws out and remove the old coil, then install the new coil and put the spark plug wires back in their proper places.
U have to pull the steering wheel and the turn signal mechanism behind it. Once that's outa the way you will find one screw that most be removed then the ignition will slide right out.
The ignition module on a 1988 Chevy Celebrity with 2.5 engine is on the side of the block beneath the intake manifold. You can simply follow the spark plug wires to it. As information the crankshaft position sensor is behind the ignition module.
There are fuses for almost every thing on your car, the fuse you are looking for is in the engine compartment. There is a fuse box I believe it is on the right of the engine compartment. The fuse will be marked for ease of replacement. Look under the fuse cover for the right fuse.
Is there a fuse or switch you should turn off before removing a fuel filter for a 1988 Chevy celebrity?
The ignition switch should be in the locked position. The fuel line should be under pressure, wrap it with a towel so that when you loosen the connection it will not spray fuel everywhere, particularly on you.
