Question about 2003 GMC Sierra

Lights blowing on Barina

Holden Barina 1995 1.4 model. The bulbs do not last long. Especially the rear brake and park bulbs which often blow within 6 months. Both headlamps have been replaced over the car's life, and now both front park lights have failed.

The running voltage is 13.7 volts. Anyone had the same experience?

Any clues to the solution?

Running voltage is a little higher than normal... too high if reading while under load..(lights on)..but alternator should be checked /replaced in this scenario as moist likely suspect..good luck

Rear park lights keep blowing fuse


first mistake you make is to increase the fuse capacity to above that required. You have a short in the circuit and by putting such a large fuse in you run the very real risk of burning the wiring loom. Check the bulb sockets and check that the right bulbs are in the sockets. bulbs come in two styles. one has 2 contact points and is either for 2 filaments (stop and tail) or a earth wire (Plastic light units) and the other is a single contact that earths out through the metal base . If you have the wrong bulb in place the current will short directly across the contacts and the light will not come on and the fuse will blow. Fuses for tail lights will be 5 amp maximun

Have no rear parking lamps or dash lights when


In that car the fuse for the rear lights is also the same fuse for the dash lights. They did that so you would know when your tail light were out. Replace the fuse.

Brake lights and rear running lights don't work


good one, love these kinds of failures.
are you in the salt belt (wiki that)
dont buy no name lamps, (from china)
they make a bad product, cheap and poor.
also check alternator voltage 15vdc max, if more lamps can burn out.
only 3 causes, voltage, junk from china, or wild crazy vibration.
id say its not that last one, no?
we shot huge guns in the Navy and blew lamps and fuses like mad.
So, know a thing or 2.

your lamps seem to be modified
some one put in the wrong lamps. easy to do sure.
wj jeeps.
brakes, not park not reverse not blinks only brakes right
not tails , tails means PARK.

most glove box operators guides tell you what to use.
ever read it?

or here, SM

go here click WJ
then click lamps
