Do you have an after market alarm installed if you do then the problem is a back feed from the lights output of the alarm. Diode isolate.

92 roadmaster instrument lights


Oh boy, I just went through this with my '92 Lesabre, took a long time to trace it all down, and wound up splicing in a new wire just to my instrument cluster lights. A short kept blowing fuses somewhere in that circuit.
Down where your feet go, up under the dash at the fuse panel, there is a 15 amp fuse for park/tail lights. When you hit the light switch (for heads or park lights), power is sent to that fuse, and then to the exterior park lights. There is another wire from that fuse (green wire on mine) that also goes up under the dash, and splices to several bulbs-on the radio, on the HVAC controller, on the ashtray light, also one to the under hood lamp, and then one to the dimmer/brighter switch on the dash, the rheostat that controls brightness of interior lights. One of the green splices goes into this switch, and then another wire goes from this switch to the instrument cluster for the gauge and dash illumination. I couldn't find the short, so ran a new wire from the park light fuse to the gray wire to the instrument cluster for the cluster bulbs. I bypassed the dimmer, and left off the HVAC bulbs and ashtray light. Too much trouble to wire them all up, and think my short may have been in the dimmer rheostat.
If you have a voltmeter, pull out the dimmer switch and check for power on those wires, the green from the fuse. The park light must be switched on, or the fuse has no power. There be 8 or 9 wires on that dimmer rheostat-I never did figure out where all of them went. Asked all over a Buick forum, but nobody had an answer.

The limp mode , reduced power mode has to do with the electronic throttle control . Some good videos on youtube how it works an how to diagnose . Electronic Throttle Control ETC System .Now as far as the parking lights staying on ,the relay contacts are probably stuck closed causing the lights to stay on .

GMC Yukon 1999, parking lights stay on when truck turned off, why?


If you pull the 20amp park lamp fuse and the lights stay on, it almost has to be a short inside the headlight switch.
Will the lights go off if you unplug the headlight switch ?

Is there a fuseable link for parking & dash lights if so where is it located


No, not just for those. There should be a fuse for the tail lights in the instrument panel fuse box. The illumination lights for the dash and the park lights are from the headlight switch, so maybe you have a bad switch. Find the fuse for the tails, pull it out, and check the terminals for power with the park light switch on. One of the two terminals where fuse plugs in should have power-it should light up a test light or show voltage on a meter. If no power on either terminal, probably the headlight switch is bad.

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

1995 GMC k2500 5.7: Parking lights stay on all the time. With engine off, light switch off parking lights constantly on. Go off when 50 amp red under-hood fuse is removed or when 10 amp in-dash fuse...


try to depress the parking brake ONE CLICK to turn them off.
You are probably spot on when dirrecting your attention to the trailor wiring as there is a master power wire that would have been installed to power the relay box that your vehicle would have been wired with.
Try the parking brake... it will bypass / override the auto daylight illumination protocall and extinguish the daytime running lights as well.

I have a 1996 dakota with no tail lights. The brake lights work. I think it may be a fuse, but I don't have a manual to see what fuse it may be,????


Why would it be a fuse?
You have front parking lights? Then no fuse

If it was a fuse ---would that fix it -- NO it wouldn't
Why do fuses blow?

Have you even removed the tail light housing & checked the bulbs,
or checked the sockets for ground or under truck for wiring
harness issues?

Don't need a manual to check all fuses under the dash &
in the box near brake booster

89 mustang lx ( My dash lights stay on for approx 2 minutes before the 5 amp fuse pops) Any idea ?


you have another circuit piggybackin on the dash lights, my guess is a bad ground to the parking or tail lights, try unplugging the tail lights and front marker lights. if the fuse satys good you have it

10amp fuse keeps popping


check each of the terminals of those bulb you mentioned. wonder if there's a relay associated to this circuit, check for short if this is the case. remove all the light bulbs [of course - the dash may not be necessary (it's a PITA) & let's hope that it's not the culprit]. visually inspect those bulbs & replace if something unusual. put back the relay if it has no short, turn on the switch, let's hope the dash lights up & it won't blow the fuse anymore, otherwise look for uninsulated wire touching the chasssis or ay metal part of the car. you may continue replacin the bulbs.
