You have a short in the circuit somewhere. look for a wire that has been rubbing on something or has come lose and is grounding out.

04' GMC Sierra quadrasteer, trec fuse 30a blows when trying to engage 4wd. I replace fuse, start truck and 4wd auto is lit up but if I press 2h, 4h, or 4 low it blows. What should I do or look for?


Wild guess here, had a similar problem on my 2000 4x4 blazer, has an electric motor on transfure case to swith it into 2h, 4h, and 4l, would blow the fuse every time when switching, did is to replace the motor. Just confirm your fuse that is blowing feeds that.

How do i tace the cuuse


trace the cause of a lamp fail 97 wrangler.
fuse blow for shorts, (preventing the fire)
so, there are only 3 ways to find shorts,

  1. visual inspection ever inch of shorted wire, (luck happens)
  2. pull all loads off the wire feed, is short not gone (BINGO?>)
  3. use an AMMETER, this is what we use, to get them all.

one nice way to find shorts,(not wanting to blow 100 fuses)
is to remove the blown fuse ATC and put in a Circuit breaker ATC fuse in that place, not it trips , cools off and repeat the trip
this allows for fast testing (meter) and pulling loads, checks.

your car is jeep TJ
and the wiring is free here.
the schematic tells you all things that can short to this node.
click wiring,
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service
Tail/park shorts, (lots of loads, the highest of all wires it is)
answers USA only not export and no DRL light option.
we are tracing the complex path called PARK (tails)
see chapter 8W that be IT.
and page. pdf page # 8w-40-7 (pdf #93)
turn the dash dimmer to lowest, still blow fuse.
no, then the short is not in cab (easy huh?)
so parks are shorted, see 8W-50 (pdf 134)
see park there/ see those fues # which one blew, that is a big CLUE.
my guess is fuse 1, (others are head lights)
F1 blows
main HL switch park pin 9 ,black yellow wire feed.
see that?
see 8w-50-4 then page 5 , see all rear parks.
then see page 8w 70-20 for fogs.

there you go... i cant teach you how to use and ammeter.
so google that.
see all those junction C connectors, all can be pulled to isolate that short.

see connector C110 , pulling that isolates front parks
conn C322 , pulling that isolates tail parks.

as you see park feed is hug (simple) but huge, lots of places to short
and big time short if trailer wiring hacks are on car. look first.

My atc fuse would keep blowing I put a bigger fuse it didn't blow that but I herd a zap noise from my TCCM now my 4x4 won't work 1999 jimmy


What you have done? You Just damage the TCCM and that's why you will not manage to shift 4x4. Why this happened? Because you had shortage somewhere and you receive blown ATC fuse.You put a bigger fuse in capacity where the was stronger to blown and the fault moved to the tccm system which was not protected and blown.Ask for an expert to check and see whether the fault is easy to get fixed.

I need to find out wher and how to fix the fuse on the front dash light


If you do not know where the fuse is, how do you know it needs "fixing"?
If your dash lights are not working, there is a possibility that there is a blown fuse. However, you need to realize that blown fuses do not cause electrical problems. Electrical problems cause blown fuses. So if you replace the fuse, it will likely just blow again if you do not fix the problem that caused it to blow.

On the other hand, there are several other things that could be keeping your dash lights from working that has absolutely nothing to do with the fuse.

With all that said, the fuse that protects your dash light circuits is a 7.5 Amp fuse that is located in the Instrument Panel Junction Block at the left side of the dash. It is marked "PANEL"
