Question about 1996 GMC Yukon

1 Answer

Courtesy lights blow 20 AMP fuse #3

1996 GMC Yukon SLT, 5.7L, 4WD, 4DR
20 amp fuse #3 on the the drivers-side fuse panel blows with a loud pop. This fuse controls courtesy lights and exterior rear view mirrors.

I've replaced the drivers jamb switch and the mirror control switch (it had minor corrosion) but no fix. Some times the lights will work for several days, then blow the fuse for no apparent reason. There's obviously an intermittent short somewhere.

I suspect the dome override switch (next to headlight switch) but not sure where to test with my multi-meter.

Also, the DRLs don't work; any connection to the courtesy light issue? Can I remove the DRL relay and do away with DRLs?

Are there any other relays or switches that could be the problem?

Thanks,
Bill

2004 yukon slt courtesy light relay location


Here is a description of the courtesy lights , there is no relay ! Controlled by the BCM - body control module !
The courtesy/illuminated entry lamps, may be manually turned on or off by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON or OFF position. If an outside door handle is lifted or a door is opened, the courtesy/illuminated entry lamps illuminate. After all the doors have been closed the courtesy/illuminated entry lamps will remain illuminated approximately 15 seconds. The courtesy/illuminated entry lamps will also turn on prior to any door being opened, and remain illuminated approximately 40 seconds when the driver removes the ignition key. When the driver places the dome lamp defeat switch in the OFF position, the courtesy/illuminated entry lamps will be disabled.
The left and right front door courtesy lamps are controlled, and receive voltage and ground from the drivers door module (DDM) and the passenger door module (PDM) respectively. The body control module (BCM), DDM, and the PDM communicate through class 2 serial data for the lamp illumination commands and the door ajar switches.
The remaining courtesy lamps are controlled and receive voltage from the BCM. Voltage for the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit and the backup lamp supply voltage circuit is from the TBC B fuse in the instrument panel fuse block directly through the BCM to these circuits. A short to ground on either of these circuits will open the fuse. Ground is provided to the footwell lamps and all courtesy/reading lamps at G203. Ground is provided to the right middle and right rear door at G306. Ground is provided to the left middle and left rear door at G302.

My interior lights, cigarette lighter and electric mirrors don't work on my 1991 gmc 3/4 ton 4wd surburban


I don't see a power connection to the three components. The interior lights are on a 20 amp courtesy fuse, the cig lighter should be on a 30 amp ACC fuse, and the mirrors are probably powered thru the key on a different 30 amp ACC fuse.
The only common factor would be a ground connector somewhere.
If they all died at the same time, a ground problem would be my guess.

1997 yukon, keep blowing ECM - 1, 20 amp fuse under hood . I had replace fuel pump a few months back, could it be a bad connection on the fuel pump?


i would check wire harness for bare wire but first i would look under that massive fuse box under hood, i kept blowing air cond relay and i traced it back to corroded connection on that fuse. not saying this is it and i hope it is that simple for you. other than that research exactly what the ecm-1 CONTROLS and search,test,grounds those systems. If i can come across any other symptoms i will forward them to you.
