05 Dodge Durango issues after bf messed with crap!!

Asked by Sep 28, 2016 at 09:38 AM about the 2005 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My idiotic boyfriend was messing around
with my 05 Dodge Durango trying to install
a radio and now my heated seats, alarm
and overhead thing that tells me the
direction I'm going is not working!! Please
help me figure this out. Sounds like he did
something with a fuse??

he probably didn't remove the negative battery cable before working on the radio and shorted a connection. Yes, check the fuse panel to see what fuse or fuses are blown and replace.

What if he did happen to short a connection? Is that a big problem??

I don't think he even started anything with the radio. He was looking for wires to hook up the system. I walked outside this morning and found a bunch of panels on the inside removed and thrown all around

a short is a loose or bare "hot" wiring touching another metal section of the car, or "neutral" wire disrupting the flow of current. If he was pulling on other wires in the car, it can be anyone's guess as to how bad it is. As long as everything is still hooked up properly, you can replace the blown fuses and put everything back together. HTH's

My boyfriend found the problem!! He forgot he had removed a fuse from under the hood.
