Check the fog lights for water intrusion, this will cause a short, also look at the wiring where it goes to the fog lights, look for worn wires where it runs through the body of the car, I know the short is one of these things, have seen it before.

1998 maxima after I tried wiring a fog light power line into the fuse for the blower everything worked fine then I turned off the lights and the entire car died blew the blower fuse and i replaced the fuse...


you may have to replace a circuit breaker (30amp ) or more, your blower motor may be part of the ignition system, it takes alot to blow a CB, but maybe thats what you did. under the hood , near battery, find the box that houses all or most of the CB'S. IT SHOULD BE clearly marked, which CB is for each circuit. look for the ignition circuit, replace it, also check if theres one for blower motor, this is probably a fuse only @ fuse box inside the car. see how this works , and let a qualified mech., wire up your fog lights, good luck

Fog lights keeps blowing fuses


Obviously a short somewhere. Check sockets for corrosion, rust etc where current could be traveling across, as well as take a look at wiring into rear if you can get to it. One other thing you could try to isolate, would be to try one bulb in at a time, perhaps one will cause fuse to blow & other won't, which will give you a reference point to start looking.

Fuses keep blowing


Re check the connections, it sounds like you have a short in the Wireing harness. If you park you car where there are lot's of small animals link mice, squirels ect. They come out this time of the season looking for things to chew on and make a home out of. 
Sorry for the shot in the dark but it does happen and if you do park your car where there are lots of small animals. Fabric sofener's in the car like under the seat keep's them away.
Good luck and hop this helps

1992 acura integra tail light fuse keeps blowing


it sounds like the wiring is all wrong as if its a bad earth on the car after he wired the fog lights maybe you should check and see if there is any wires hanging down underneath the bonnet that have been stripped back or see if there is and loose wires on the back of your lights or fuse board if you dont find any problems there take out the radio in the car i find that most problems to do with bad wiring or electrical problems in cars is to do with bad wiring on a radio i.e not having been installed proberly. hopes this helps

Fog lights


check fuse #7 in the fuse block inside the vehicle and fuse #25 in the fuse block under the hood...more than likely you blew one of these fuses when it sparked. as for the drivers side being inop once you replace the blown fuse if you have a test light check for voltage at the bulb connector...the light assembly itself may be bad
