Turning my headlights on blows the fuses to running lights and dashlights


headlight switch is bad, change the headlight switch itsellf will short out, therefore blowing your fuse. turn signals and break lights are on a different relay, therefore they will still work

Show me the right fuse to replace my headlights and blinkers


When you turn on the headlights or hazard lights, and when you use the turn signals you should hear clicks from under the dash. All the exterior and interior lights are controlled by the Lighting Control Module which is typically under the dash to the right of the steering column. If you do not hear clicks when you try the headlights and signals, and the interior lights do not work then the module is not operating. Your operator's manual will tell you which fuses are for the module.If you don't have the manual, you can find blown fuses with a fuse tester, voltmeter or by checking with an auto parts store like O'Reilly or Autozone, who will give you the info for free and may even help you find the fuses. Inspect the fuses and replace any blown fuses. If the lights still do not work, there is most likely a problem with the module which will need to be replaced, or there is a short in the wiring to the module from the fuses. It's possible something fell into the module and is shorting it out. If any electrical work was done, the work may also have shorted the wiring.

So the checking order would be: 1) Check the fuses, 2) check for wiring shorts and damage, 3) replace the Lighting Control Module. If you do replace the module, be certain to get the correct one for your car (the modules should look the same) and make sure the jumpers on the board are in the same positions as in your original module.

On my 1997 gmc truck when plow light switch is turned on one truck headlight goes out and plow light on that side comes on but other truck headlight stays on and that plow light does not come on..


This is just an idea, I may be wrong but any input is helpful, right? I would think that the switch that controls the plow lights is designed to alternate between the circuits for the truck light and the plow light. If the trucks headlight switch is turned on then the circuit is closed and turnes on the light. When the plow light switch is turned on it may cut the hot side of the circuit going to the headlight and engage the hot wire to the plow light. The headlight and plow light may share a common ground. If they don't share a common ground then the plow switch may cut the ground wire opening the circuit. If you can't find a solution you can always wire the plow lights directly to the battery with the same switch or a new toggle switch and then turn on the parking lights only on the truck. On most GM cars and trucks there is a space in the fuse pannel that is for a power accesory. It is basically a fuse slot that is empty labeled ACC. This is a 12V hot power source and you would run the positive wire here then ground the neg to the chassis. This way if you forget to shut off the toggle it will cut the hot when the key is shut off. When running the wire it is near the hood release able and you may be able to run the wire thru there and not drill a new hole. I've done this for neon lights under cars as well as stereo systems requiring an amplifier. If you drill a new hole even though its under the hood I would put a little blue RTV silicone over the new hole to prevent moisture from getting past the fire wall or road salt.

I have no running lights on my 1996 F150. I have chased wires as best I can, replaced the headlight switch. Headlights work but 30a fuse blows as soon as I turn them on. Turn signals and brake lights work....


If you have trailer lights make sure you don't have a short in the connector or harness. You obviously have a short somewhere after the fuse. Try unlpugging each running light. to see if its in the light connecter. also check the side markers

Parking lights not work, looking for fuse or int. module position


Sounds like a blown fuse. Have you checked the fuse box for parking light fuse?

Possible short?


Check the ground connections, front an back. A short will pop a fuse. A bad ground will only handle so much power, then it becomes an open curcuit. Frankster016
