Given the high amount of amps available to an automotive battery you need to be careful in that regard. Checked a few others labeled power and accessory. That is because there are no fuses between you and the battery and all the amps available at the battery are trying to flow through the metal object you just shorted to ground. Let us all know if you figure it out. Aug 27, 2012 I had a similar problem I thought it wasn't the fuse because I had only checked one but there are two cigarette fuses. Have you checked fuse 28? I have checked all the fuses and none are blown, don't have a user manual and the fuse cover under the hood is rather vague.
The same thing would happen if you short the two terminals of the battery. Does anyone have a relay diagram and which relay I should replace? Hi, this is great information, really appreciate it. They have a curved wire inside which burns through when the fuse blows. There is a small black cover that snaps on top of it. Like I mentioned in the previous paragraph, the fact that the fuse is blowing is a nice and controlled warning that something is wrong.
Then I proceeded to pull every blue 15A fuse until 48 which was bad. It is a one-piece deal and if you blew one of them you would need to replace the entire fuse bank. Toyota Sienna Fuse Locations This is an exhaustive list of the locations of 2004-2010 Toyota Sienna fuse boxes, descriptions of the circuits each fuse protects, definitions of each fuse, and links to where to purchase them. Why do vehicles have fuses? Engineers who design electronics determine the maximum amperage a circuit will ever require at a time and then put a fuse slightly higher than the sum of all the current of those components. By intentionally designing a weak spot in a place that is easy to service, it saves the hassle of having to search the entire circuit length looking for a point of failure. Above this are the flashers and about 3 inches above this is the circuit breaker for the windows and door locks. Radio, Horn, lights everything are still working so I don't think it is the fuse problem.
I did open up the cover on the front to take a look at the cigarette lighter connection and it looks ok to me. There will be a computer that the position buttons feed into, which keeps the locations in memory. I have one inside middle console and also one in rear of vehicle. Yiipeee~ Hello All, My first post here although I have been lurking on this forum for a while hehe. Thanks for the suggestions I started to check my connections and found the smaller wire that runs to the positive terminal was broken so I checked with my multimeter again it still showed power going through the system even with the broken wire, I stripped it back a little and made contact and that fixed the problem so I just have to repair that and all should in working order again. When troubleshooting your Sienna often it is nice to be able to easily located the fuse for that particular electrical component. I found the cigarette lighter to be in the third … column over from left and the 3rd fuse down.
You do not need to worry about being shocked when working on your vehicles 12-volt wiring. On the back side of the change holder is the fuse chart. And, yes, I had the right polarity for the batteries. So where exactly is my cigarette lighter? The more electronics your Sienna has, the more fuses it has. They have a curved wire inside which burns through when the fuse blows.
If you need to replace a blown fuse in your Sienna, make sure you replace it with one that has the same amperage as the blown fuse. Have you pushed for that?. The fuse you want to replace is the fuse for the cigarette lighter, it is a 15 amp fuse and is located on the bottom right. I tried to put together as much information as possible but it was not necessarily from first hand experience but gathering the information I could find from the shop manuals, etc. They are fed from a 7.
Had to pull out every fuse to find the other blow fuse. I too am in need of the relay information. That is I have a battery I just replaced its at the moment reading 12. I notice several systems are mentioned on several fuses, and was wondering how that works. Thinking that meant cigarette I checked it. I was told that the remote control fob just needed a new battery. The large purple and blue boxes are relays.
You just pull it out and you will see a fuse diagram on the back. Replacing the fuse initially worked with a rechargeable flashlight. They caused the damage and they should be responsible to get it repaired. Thanks for the question Rick. Fuses are easy to check, just look at it, if it is broken then … its the fuse. Any thoughts on what else I can check despite bringing in to the dealer to check.
If checking and replacing the fuse for the component in question doesn't work, we recommend seeking assistance from a trusted professional mechanic. Why You Should Not Install a Higher Amp Fuse Someone may be tempted, if they keep blowing a certain amp fuse, to install a higher amp fuse instead, or even worst, to short-circuit the fuse socket and bypass the fuse. Then follow the battery cables to the fuseable link box and check the voltage on both sides of the fuses. Some components may have multiple fuses, so make sure you check all of the fuses that are linked to the component in question. I just did today May 20,2012.
