Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Brakes killing fuses

Every time I press on the brakes, the fuse for my signal lights blows...I also have no brake lights either now! Each time I replace the fuse for the signal lights, they work until the first time I hit the brakes.

    You have a short in the brake ligh circuit, it may be the turn signal switch.

Why does my turn signal/ hazard light fuse keep blowing out


you have a short in one of the light sockets or a worn wire from the wiring harness. could be the flasher assembly. are the turn signals different bulbs from the brake lights? Does using the brakes blow the fuse? (Rear lights or brake light switch on brake pedal). left or right turn signal blowing the fuse will tell which side has the short. 4 ways only, replace the relay.

Brack lights wont light up on my 1988 ford ranger we keep blowing fuse and put in new brake switch


If you keep blowing the brake fuse than you have a short in the system. Unplug the brake switch. Install a new fuse. If it did not blow than the problem is after the brake switch. Next unplug the turn signal switch, then plug the stop light switch back in and press the brake pedal. Did the fuse blow. If not than the wiring is good in between the two switches. With the turn signal switch disconnected use a jumper wire in between the light green wire (power from the brake switch) and the orange with light blue wire (power to the right brake lamp). If the fuse blows than there is a short in the right side brake circuit between the plug in and the rear socket assembly. If the fuse does not blow than jump from the light green wire to the Light green with orange wire (power to the left brake lamp). If the fuse blows than the problem is in the left hand brake wiring circuit.

95 gmc jimmie, 4x4, everytime i use my brake pedal, a fuse blows, i have no brake lights, hazard or signal lights. how do i fix it my mom broke off the hazard button in the steerin column so i used a stick...


consider properly repairing the hazard light switch via junkyard parts for a cheap price. You invariably have a short that overloads the fuse when you activate the brake lights via pressing on the brakes.

good luck

I have a 1996 Suburban that keeps blowing fuses on break lights


Check the turn signal flasher,and the trailer wire adapter that plugs in under the rear of the truck.Check the brake light switch,to see if it is grounding out on something.

95' Buick regal, 3rd brake light works, tail lights work, turn signals work, stoplight switch seems to work ie 3rd brake light working, fuse is ok, changed bulbs, but no rear brake lights.


If the third brake light works and the regular ones don't, it is most likely a bad turn signal (multifunction) switch. The switch is able to kill the brakes lights to run the turn signals, and in rare circumstances does this. I've seen it several times. It could also be wiring, especially near the turn signal switch, but it is usually the switch.

I am looking for a wiring diagram for a 2004 Isuzu Rodeo. The fuse keeps blowing every time the brakes are applied, meaning I have no brake lights, emergency flashers or turn signals. recently my son, who...


there could be a problem with the linkage itself, when it does not come out of park there is a reason, when you force it, that is when you create bad problems for yourself. it could be something as simple as the brake lamp switch located directly on the brake pedal arm.

Brakes killing fuses...


there is a short in the wires, it is very difficult to find sometimes but if you pull back the carpet along the drivers side you should see a bundle of wires that go to the trunk, start in the trunk at the lights so that you can tell which ones to trace and look for a wire that is burnt or cut, splice it back together and that should fix your problem
