    Aren't all fuses running 12v in a car?

    A fuse running a non-12v circuit would be new to me....but knowing modern cars anything seems possible now.

    FYI: AC will always be on if you have the HVAC set on defrost...regardless of your AC setting...it's a standard feature. But it's probably the Torque Converter like suggested.

    If the circuit is blowing fuses and all the devices attached to the circuit check out. Then it's the wiring harness. A wire got partially melted and is shorting.

    Oh, and you need to dump this...

    If it is AC related, it sounds like your AC clutch is going out. They make a stinky plastic smell right before they go into free wheeling mode...or lock up and burn up your AC belt.

    If it's bad...

    I would check the battery cables. Look them over REALLY GOOD. Twist/bend them a bit and make sure they aren't corroded internally. Cables can totally look fine but be rotten inside. Although I...

    Little to None? I think Toyota injects some gas into the air stream with their DI design. I think Ford too? This is because a true DI setup becomes a time bomb.

    Anything in the gas won't help the valves on a DI engine. You need something injected into the air flow. Or block anything allowing carbon like stopping recirculating gases.

    yes. Depends on if your negative wire simply bolts somewhere are is part of the main wiring harness. Most times it will be part of a wiring harness.

    I almost only buy OEM. I've been using Mazda Swag dot com for most everything. Cheap and fairly quick. If you supply your VIN they should check fitment for you. I don't know of any site that will...

    So that puts with a warranty to 110K miles?

    Where do you live? Rust belt states have much higher repair rates.

    Regardless. Most cars get to 100k miles with few issues. I would cancel it and...

    This is the future. I just dumped $3k in my 2002 4Runner because I don't want to deal with this garbage in a new vehicle. The future of vehicles is to lease. Purchasing won't make financial sense.

    Acetone might damage any paint/plastic dots/film on the windshield. If there are any chips that were repaired with adhesive, acetone will attack it. I would not recommend.
