I'm mostly familiar with Ancient Jeeps

I was able to research and find your fuse panels below and this guide to help you test.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-check-a-car-fuse

I think your answer is "FUSE 5.....15 AMP"(3rd diagram, left side)........this is my "interpretation anyway!"

I sorta figured, I was already in my source looking anyway, I might as well grab those 3 diagrams concerning "power distribution" and let you have 'em....might aid you too (since I really do not know what you need the info for)

I cannot tell if these things are readable until I post 'em, let me know if you cannot see them good, or you need additional info,.......Please be specific, as to the system you might need, there are lots of diagrams!

Your Primitive Jeep Buddy @ 2car,

Thanks for the diagrams - no idea what they mean! You say Fuse 5 - 15 Amp - is this in the engine bay fuse box, or the fuses under the dash please?

I did find one under the dash, but it seems to be linked to something else aswell. If this is the one that will turn out the Interior Lights - do you know what else this fuse is powering. I have pulled all the interior bulbs out for now - so the problem is solved temporarily.

Thanks again!

No longer have the owners manual?

The diagram says "Fuse Block" (fuses). Other items are in "Relay center" (relays)

The lids for the boxes are probably labeled also

Find 'em?

Hi, no I bought the Jeep 5 years ago (second-hand) so no owners manual.

The Fuse box in the engine bay has labels in the lid - none of these were labelled 'Interior Lights' - I pulled out one for 'Auxillary Lights', but that wasn't it.

Under the dash there is no lid, however one fuse seems to be possible, but it is linked to something else too, so I don't want to pull it out, as I don't know what else it is controlling!

As I said, I have taken out all the Interior Light Bulbs, so the lights are now not permanently staying on, flattening the battery!

If anyone knows what this fuse also operates - I would be very grateful.

Thanks,

Caroline

I will see if I can find additional info!

Does the fuse in question have a number or lettering?

Sounds stupid, I had wanted to see a owners manual for '95 Plymouth Neon that I got a super "Nelsomatic" deal on.

Owner had let it sit in their yard for years. It was covered with tree moss (looked camouflaged), interior was immaculate. Convinced it had a short, since every time they went to drive it, it was dead (they only attempted, once every 6 months!) I gave 'em $250.30 MPG, "Arctic" A/C, has a dent traveling down drivers side doors! What a Deal, didn't really need it, use it for a spare, when we need it.

I like literature! Bought a Repair Manual for it.I'm the type that will read the instructions for a toothpick dispenser, thoroughly, before deploying it on the kitchen counter!

During my ever on-going search, I ran across "Lil Red's" twin at Walmart, talked to the owner, looked at the her owners manual a few minutes. She gave me her address and the manual. I copied it, and took it back to them, the next day (people around here, exhibit that kinda behavior. It still exists, believe it or not!)

Its all in your appearance, presentation, and diplomacy!

Let me know, about the fuse, or send a pic.I hate irritating stuff, probably more than you do!

Think I got "Took" on the Neon?

As far as the power windows, I'd check voltage circuit going to the power window circuit breaker, in the fuse block. Use a voltage tester on the circuit, the circuit goes hot when you turn on the key. If no voltage, I'd have to check the feed to and from the ignition switch.

Just purchased this vehicle. The horn, radio, cig lighter, fog lights, turn signals, and front windshield wipers do not operate. I think this is too many things wrong for it to be a problem with the actual units. I believe it to be something to do with the fuse box, fuses, wiring, or something of that nature. It appears someone attempted to install a newer radio with a removable faceplate. The radio has power, indicated by a red blinking light on the unit, minus the faceplate mind you, and the sound of the cd player motor working, but when faceplate is put back on. It will not turn on. The horn was replaced with a newer unit. Its one of those fancy horns. The black wire to the horn was cut at the horn, so I tied the wires together. I pushed the horn button on the steering wheel, theres a sound indicating somethings happening, but no horn. I checked all the fuses under the steering column and had to replace one, but still no change. I searched for a fuse box diagram online and came up with every jeep but mine. Bought a Haynes manual and still no diagram. Why are the components not functioning?

That is a good question. Since someone has worked on it and changed it from the original components and wiring, it makes it hard to diagnose. If you hear something with the horn, chances are the horn itself is bad. As far as the stereo, I have no idea what kind of radio you are dealing with.

Can you tell me what the diagram is for the fuse box. I bought a Jeep and the cover of the fuse box is missing. Also I can not get the back hatch to open. Is there a button inside the Jeep to release it? The CD player works and not the radio. Is it possible that the radio wire may be disconnected?

Hello, the fuse box identification is involved on the model, please follow this link to get a repair manual for your car.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-check-a-car-fuse

Next there is no button for rear hatch, key only.

Next if the cd player work, remove the radio and check the antenna lead @ the rear of the unit. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

The fuse for the brake lights is in the engine compartment fuse box, located behind the battery. Open the lid. Several fuses are marked but many are not. There is a group of 12 fuse sockets in the middle of the panel, arranged in 3 rows and 4 columns. The brake light fuse is in row 2, column 2. It powers left, right and middle brake lamps. If your brake switch fails in the ON position, you can pull this fuse until you can get a replacement switch. The drain of these lights being on can kill your battery overnight. Do not drive car without brake lights!

If it's 40 amp, it goes to the starter relay then to the starter, brown wire at starter solenoid. If you do any testing make sure the tranny is in park or neutral and the e-brake is set.

One of the fuses melted inside my fuse box inside the car. The port was for my running lights. I have replaced the ports with a new plug in soddered them and all and when I go to put the fuse in it pops right away. What have I done wrong or what else must I do?

The types of things to look for depends on whether the fuse blows right away or only after you turn on a switch.

A simple trick to finding a short is to replace the blown fuse with a pair of spade terminals, then use small jumper wires to connect them to a 12 volt light bulb. A brake light bulb works well. When the circuit is live and the short is present, the bulb will be full brightness and hot so be sure it's not laying on the carpet or against a plastic door panel. Now you can unplug electrical connectors and move things around to see what makes the short go away. When it does, the bulb will get dim or go out.
