Clock and Climate Control Not Working

After installing an FM modulator for my ipod, I noticed that my clock and climate control dont work. I read somewhere it could be fuse #20. Can anyone tell me which specific fuse #20 (Im assuming its on the kick panel) that is?

Thanks.

Larry

Re: Clock and Climate Control Not Working

Fuse 20 is in the kick panel. Bottom row, next to last fuse on the right.

The owner's manual says it controls the cooling fan.


The clock fuse (25) and the A/C system fuse (33) are both located in the fuse box under the hood.

Re: Clock and Climate Control Not Working

Thanks for the info. I checked those particular fuses and they looked fine so I just pulled each one in the kick panel. Turns out that it was the one in the top row that says "Cigar" thats a 20 amp fuse. Put in a new one and it works fine.

Re: Clock and Climate Control Not Working

So I guess I'm not the only one with this issue. I ripped off the connector from the cig lighter and I pulled apart the connector inside the elbow of the driver's side visor. I then plugged back in the fuse and everything worked. The fuse had never blown. I am suspecting either the freshly damaged lighter or the visor was partially shorted, drawing lots of current, but not enough to blow the fuse, and this caused a brown out of sorts for the other components.

Re: Clock and Climate Control Not Working

We should be happy to have such few, easily fixed electrical problems.
