I keep blowing 2 fuses immediately after replacing them. One is the park lamps fuse and the other is the controls b+ fuse.


Doug, do you have trailer light harness with adapter, try unhooking it. I will post trouble shooting tail light dead shorts links.

MY 1999 GMC YUKON THE FUSE FOR THE TAILIGHTS AND DASHE BLOWS EVERTIME I PUT NEW ONE IN AND LIGHTS GO OUT


The fuse is doing it's job. Saving the wiring harness from melting down into it's self and shorting out everthing next to it. No simple soultion. Some one need to get in there and find where the wire is shorted out. DON'T bypass or replace the fuse with some thing bigger. This will cause bigger problems & $$$$$$ down the road

No Dash lights, or tail lights. All fuses and bulbs are good. Headlights and turn signals fine. Very confused....please help.


Sounds as if you may have a short did you check the bulbs? I would check the bulbs and make sure they are good. when you lift the rear hatch lid search around the wires and see if you have a exposed wire or perhaps a loose wire connection. Allot of times wires in a vehicle that year start getting frayed and worn from putting different items in the rear of the vehicle.

My tailights and dashlights won't work because the fuse blows.


it sounds like a short in the park lights.you will have to start by disconnecting headlight switch then install fuse,then check all park light bulbs and there sockets, its gonna be a bad switch or socket, enless theres a wire touching ground ,but start with the switch and checking all sockets. hope this helps.

Why does my fuse keep blowing for my tail lights in my 96 plymouth breeze ?Every time I put fuse in it cut the lights on the fuse blows?


The fuse keeps blowing out because there is a short circuit. Check the tailight sockets for corosion. Is there a tow package wiring installed?

Keep blowing fuse for rear taillights and dashboard lights


Sounds like loose wires. Had a similar problem with my 03 Durango. Kept blowing fuses when I put them in. Came to find out my trailer wiring harness had fried and was shorting out.

I have a 1989 Chevrolet 1500 Wrangler pickup truck 2 door. Color light blue. When I turn the lights on the fuse blow out and the dash lights, tail lights and horn goes out as well.


ASE Mechanic:
sounds like a short in the wiring somewhere. If a trailer wiring harness was installed suspect that thing first. then start unplugging the lights and try to get the fuse not to blow. or with a bright light scope all the wires for those systems, and try to note the obivious.

Car wont start keeps blowing 50 amp maxifuse


sounds to me that something is deffinently shorting out. I would check the wiring for any point that may be bare and making contact with the metal part of the car. I would also unbolt the fuse pannel and make sure that there is not a bare wire shorting out on the back side of thefuse pannel. Also something else I have seen happen in commercil vehicles ( BIG RIGS ) is that a lite bulb has burnt out and the filament from the bulb is actually arcing out on the hot side of the other filament. Worth looking at and good luck.

Blown tailight fuse


I will bet that you have some type of trailer wiring harness installed. If so, remove it. I have observed this condition many times. It seems that corossion gets into the trailer wiring and shorts out that particular fuse. Hope this helps.
