What would cause my front dash light and my tail lights go out on a 98 Chevy Tahoe? It keeps blowing fuse after fuse. I have put in about 5 of them back to back and they keep blowing. Help


If the fuses keep blowing it means you have a short somewhere in your wiring harness. These can sometimes be a pain to track down. I would check the wiring in the rear closely first. If you have ever had a trailer hitch and wiring installed check that as installers sometimes screw things up.

Fuse for dash board lights and tail lites keeps blowing


You may have a damaged wire leading to one of the lights that keeps blowing.
Not fun, but you have to chase down the wiring to everything that keeps blowing out.

I have a 98 chevy tahoe. The #9 fuse keeps blowing.


Try disconnecting one feed wire at a time to see which circuit is shorted to the body/frame of your Tahoe. If you disconnect the trailer lights first and the fuse still works, look for the short circuit in this wiring. Auto electrical problems take time and patience to try everything, but one step at a time.

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.

96 bluebird le grand tail light fuse keeps blowing?


Anytime a fuse constantly blows, you either have a short in your wireing for that components circuit or the component itself is faulty. Inspect the wiring harnesses for each taillamp assembly and ensure no wires are damaged or loose. Also inspect wiring at the fuse box.

Tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it


you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.
