Question about 1990 Lincoln Town Car

Open Question

Turn signal fuse keeps blowing.

The tun signal fuse keeps blowing when you start the car. I'm having trouble tracing the wire from the fuse box back. I disconnected the wire from the turn signal and the fuse still keeps blowing. I'm having trouble finding a wiring diagram to keep tracing wire. I would like to know where the wire goes.

On the passenger side, under the dash, on the right side if you are looking at the dash. There is another one in the trunk next to battery. There is a third one under the hood behind the right headlight.

2000 dodge caravan turn signal fuse keeps blowing


You have a short in the wire. You are going to have to trace the wires back and look for a spot where the insulation is cracked.

The fuse to my ac and turning signals and back light keep blowing what could be the problem and how do I fix it


One of these three systems is shorting 12 volts to ground and the fuse blows. Remove turn signal lights, try a new fuse. If it still blows remove the back up lights. If it still blows the problem is the Ac or the relays controlling the signal 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.

Tail light fuse keeps blowing. I have traced the wiring back to the tail lights and it all seems fine. I have taken out the turn signal lights and the light switch, put in to the first position for parking...


Are the bulbs out of the sockets and the fuse blows?
Take bulbs out and check again
Place one back at a time if fuse was OK with bulbs out to locate bad bulb.
Otherwise.......
Do this........if still needed with bulbs out and fuse blowing.
Put a circuit breaker in to replace the fuse of the same amperage.
It will trip off then back on.
Use a standard cheap magnetic compass........place along lighting wiring........the wire with current will cause the needle to jump as circuit breaker trips on and off.
Follow path of current to problem.....the compass will stop moving once past the shorted /grounded wire/connection.

I need a fuse box diagram for 1983 Dodge Power Ram


When the fuse keeps blowing, there is only one reason why. That is because there is a short, not because other fuses are missing. For example if the fuse is rated at 10amps, and the wire after the fuse is drawing more than 10 amps it will blow. If for example you put a bulb in series with the wire than is only drawing 2amps the fuse will not blow that is because you have put a load that is less than what the fuse is rated for. One way to trace a short is to start where the fuse is at. Find which is the wire connected to that fuse. one side of the fuse is connected to the battery and the other side goes to whatever device it supply, and there maybe several of them. Note what else do not work beside the turn signal, Most short occur where there is an electronic device. Since your car is an older model, it is unlikely to an electronic device, but a wiring may have been worked on and somehow a hot wire is touching the body of the car. If the fuse blows only when the key is in the on position, then logically you would look at the back where the rear lighting may have been worked on, thats because turn signal are always off when the key is off. If it blows even when the key is off then you know there is something else beside the turn signal that the fuse is connected to that is on even when the key is off such as tail lights because you can turn on the tail light with the ignition off. You get what I mean?

1998 GMC Sierra Signal Fuse Blowing


it seems you have a short in either one of the lights or interlock. all are connected to the same fuse. trace the wiring from the fuse box back to the component. Using a test light test in between the wires. check for any obvious breaks in the wiring.
