I have a 2005 chevy equinox and I have replaced a fuse repeatedly for a couple of weeks now. When I try to start it the dash lights come on but it wont start. So I have been changing the fuse but then it blows out. My husband wants to try to fix it himself before he takes it to the shop. Any advice as to what might be the problem?

Where is the fuse, underhood, interior? What is the amp rating, what does the fuse control? Your owners manual should tell what circuit/s the fuse controls.

Its under the hood. It has a number 10 on it. All the dash lights come on and it just wont crank at all or turn over. The fuse that I replace I think controls the back up lights. But. When I actually back up the lights are on and seem ok. I looked in my book and all it says is what that fuse controls.

Yes the 10A fuse where it says backup. This happened 2 years ago and I had the car at the shop and the mechanic said it was a back up light that blew the fuse and it triggered the anti theft? My back up lights work though.I dont know at this point just tired of changing fuses everytime I get in my car

When the problem occurs, does the starter crank? Cranking and starting are two different issues.

Look at the neutral switch, my info says, on top of tranny. Anything look burned or melted? The next thing would be to separate the backup lamp circuit from the neutral switch. Next, you check the circuit from the neutral switch to pcm.

If the fuse is blown, the backup lamps can't work.
