Quick Tip: Signs of a blown IOD Fuse on a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat, or Ram product
UPDATE: So it's been brought to my attention that some Chryslers have the NO FUSE message (yeah like 200s and PT Cruisers) where the odometer should be. If this is the case, your IOD fuse is definitely your bogey and should be investigated/replaced. Thank you. So as I was in the middle of installing my radio, a whole bunch of electrical oddities happened to me. Turns out I shorted something to ground on accident. As a result I popped the IOD (Ignition Off-Draw) Fuse, because I failed to remove the negative battery cable. Basically this is one of the fuses that goes to the BCM (Body Control Module) on a Chrysler product, and when this fuse blows a bunch of funkiness can happen, including but not limited to: * Lights not turning on when they should (or coming on when they SHOULDN'T), limited on/off switching, other general funkiness * Key Fob TOTALLY inoperable * Door locks DON'T WORK unless you have the engine started * Vehicle won't start * Radio oddities * HVAC controls aren't working * Power sliding doors won't function * Rear hatch doesn't open unless you hold the key in and push the button to open it (normally you should turn the key then push the button) * Instrument Panel acting all goofy and warning lights/gauge neutral positions don't turn off for at least a minute upon shutdown ***BEFORE WE FAULT THE BCM PLEASE START HERE, THEN LOOK AT ANY OTHER BCM RELATED FUSES/WIRING/SENSORS/CONNECTIONS.
