2001 buick regal *fuse problem*

I have a tail light/license light fuse that keeps blowing out. I replaced it 5 times and now it seems to not have my dash lights work, or my running lights or tail lights. The lights that usually come on when it turns night doesnt come on anymore, any suggestions?

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Tail light fuse keep blowing


The fuse is blowing because there is a short to ground in the circuit.
It also includes the parking lights in the front of the car.
The sockets and wiring will need to be checked for shorts.

License Plate light dont work


Hi Merido, If the fuse is blowing in the center try using a fuse with a higher rating. If the fuse is blowing towards the side, you have a short circuit. If the rear lights are working correctly the problem will be between the tail lamp wiring and the number plate. look for anywhere on the harness which may be rubbing against the body of the car. It should not be too dificult to find the fault and rectify it. Regards John

Tail lights wont come on keeps blowing fuse blows 10 amp 15 amp and even 5 amp fuses


put a 12 volt light bulb in place of the fuse. It will stay lit until you find the short circuit. Check tail and park light & side marker bulbs first.

How about if you just turn parking lights on, not headligths

My 01 buick regal's service engine soon lite is blinking and my car shakes when i turn it on...also seems like there is white smoke and some water coming out of my muffler. Can u help me please?


I would take it to a real garage, moisture out the tail pipe can indicate perfect combustion, blowing out accumulated condensation, or a bad gasket which is allowing coolant into the combustion chamber. I would suspect the latter in your case and this is not good.

My brake lights work but the tail lights and license plate light don't work every time I turn on the fuse it blows I have a 1984 pontiac fiero.


Remove all bulbs on the tail lights and license plate circuit.
Replace fuse, turn on parking lamps- check if fuse blows without any lamps connected.
If it does, check for short circuit to ground on the taillight/license plate wiring.

If it doesn't blow, re-install one lamp at a time until all lights work. you may have a faulty lamp or lampsocket.
