Car Wont Turn Off, Fuse Problem?


Recommended Posts

Hey hows it going a i got R33 Series 2 Manual Skyline and tonight i replaced a fuse that blew that controlled my interior lights. When i installed it i drove home and when i took the key out of the ignation the turbo timer didnt kick in so i tried shutting it off and the car wouldn't shut off. Only way i can shut off my car is if i take out my main fuse or stall it. Now i have checked all the fuses and none of them seem to be blown. However im not 100% sure on how do you check the fuses in the boot if they are blown or not.

However there's another problem is that the dash lights wont turn off even when the ignition key is out and turned off. Only way i turn them off is disconnecting the battery.

So if theres anyone out there that could shed some light on this problem and help me out, i will gratefully thankful for you help.

Yours Truly,

The fuse blew for a reason, there might be a short circuit in the wiring somewhere. Take out the interior light fuse as u suspect this is the last one u replaced before the issue.

Do u have an alarm tha starts the car? Can u completely remove the turbo timer incase the short is inside it causing the ignition to stay on.

Ive removed the engine control fuse and now the car seems to be working fine it turns off like its supposed to. I forgot to mention i also filled in the missing spot for it last night so i guess that was the cause of the problem. But i just want to make sure is it bad if the engine control fuse section doesnt have a fuse in it because im not sure really what it does.

    • I'm not sure if this helps or not. I recently upgraded to R34 Vspec2 Brembo's on the S2 Stag. I used this braided kit: https://safebrake.biz/home/292-skyline-gt-r-r34-awd-26tt-brake-upgrade-safebrake-performance-hoses.html Beyond this I got the R33gtr front brake hard lines, that go over axle hub just behind the dust plate and all lined up beautifully.  The braided lines were same length as the stock ones. Needed to buy 2x longer bolts for one of the hard mount points for the braided hoses up the front. Trim rear dust shields so could fit 322mm discs. It's a pretty straight forward job.
    • Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has changed their stock front upper /  inner control arm bushes for nolathane and has any advice on doing so? See pic circled in red with the bushes im referring to. Can I do it myself? ie. with an air chisel and a suitable sized/diameter socket on the end. Or is it a hydraulic press job? I've already done the outside bushes, the originals popped of easy with the air chisel as they had a little lip to get some purchase on. Cheers, Pete    
    • Mate, great looking R33!  It's not too late to go European and spend your days talking about how you went from v1.01 to v1.03 of your Stage 1.5 tune and now you can bake off the line holding your chai latte without spillage. 🥲 I feel you're at the point of no return now, brace yourself!  
    • I have a Toyota Estima hybrid AHR20 2013. The diffrential arm bushing need replacing. The OEM differential arm part number is 52380-28050. Please let me know if you know anyone who can supply or supply and install the differential arm bushing. I have asked Febest Auto Parts, Auto-Parts and Auto Plus Parts, without any luck. Thank you in advance for any relevant information.  
    • There's a guy that calls himself Boosted International. You're able to request non standard designs off him too. That cost me $67 delivered so not bhed.. https://boostedintl.com/product/r33-gtst-gts-gtr-ashtray-gaugeholder/
