  1. Windshield Wiper Fuse Keeps Blowing

    Maintenance and Service
    I have a 2009 EX and as of Monday my front windshield wiper fuse keeps blowing and I am unable to use them. When I first encountered the problem, I noticed that the rear wipers and fluid still worked, but neither the front wipers or fluid would activate. I assumed this was a blown fuse and...
  2. Rear Wiper/Washer fuse keeps popping

    Miscellaneous / General Element Discussions
    A few days ago my rear wiper and washer stopped working. I suspected it was the fuse so I replaced it (#9, 10amp). It flipped back a forth a few times (no fluid came out) and then it stopped. I replaced the fuse again...and same thing happened. It's pointless to replace it a third time. Anyone...
  3. No Fuse Lid = Electrical Failures

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, I took off my engine fuse box lid to have it painted. About half way home, my seat belt warning light started going on. A few minutes later the airbag light went on. Then the ABS. Then VSA. Then radio started rurning itself on and off. Then I noticed the horn was gone. I checked the box...
  4. #4 fuse keeps blowing causing overheating at idle

    Problems & Issues
    So my wife drives a 03 element. Last summer i replaced a radiator fan thinking it was going bad because the radiator fan fuse kept blowing.

  5. New radio Install wreaks havoc on electrical system

    Problems & Issues
    So, my factory radio had to be replaced. I can't get that to work, even though it should be working (wiring seems to be solid). the problem has grown to several electrical problems. I replaced two blown fuses, on on the radio power, and one on the rear accessory adapter (which was already...
  6. Hardwire GPS to fuse box under steering wheel

    Mobile Electronics
    I'd like to hardwire my Garmin GPS by using the fuse box under the steering column. I plan on using one of those add-a-circuit adapters and hooking a 12v socket up to it to plug the GPS into. What I'm not sure about, is which spot in the box I should use. Should I use one of the empty ones, and...
  7. Which fuses power off with the car?

    Interior
    I'm planning to add an extra outlet to my E, and I am planning to put it (with an add-a-fuse) to one of the unused spots in the fusebox, as I am planning to attach a triple outlet, and i don't think wiring it in with the rear outlet would be good (4 outlets on one fuse...). My question is, how...
  8. Electrical issues after hooking up trailer

    Problems & Issues
    I recently connected a trailer lighting kit. Immediately after the installation there were no problems. I then borrowed my friend's trailer which had a crushed wiring harness. When I changed out the connector on the trailer there were two brown wires on the connector and only one on the trailer...

    I need to install a amateur radio and need 12 power but only when the ignition is on. As the radio draws heavy amp. We use what's called a 'A Relay'. When the ignition comes on, it will energize the relay which has big wire connection to the battery. When ignition is off, the relay drops out...
  10. Instrument / gauge cluster: bulb replacement / color change / LED conversion

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I was wondering if there's an easy way to change the color of the light bulbs that illuminate the instrument cluster. After removing the cluster, I see a ton of small bulbs that are in removable "Toshiba V2" housings (or something like that). Is there a simple way to make these say, blue? Or...
