Q: Q: Fuses getting no power.

asked by on

I have no power to some of my fuses.

Fuses are circuit protection devices. They are designed to blow when the current passing through exceeds the fuse amperage rating. Not all fuses will have power all the time; some will only have power with the ignition on. So, you may want to double check that the key was in the ignition on position during your testing procedure. If by "no power to some of my fuses" you mean that some of your fuses are blown, why they have blown will need to be determined. As was mentioned, fuses don’t blow for no reason - they blow from too much current passing through the system. A certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose and repair your fuse problem.
