2003 Olds Alero keeps blowing fuse For dash and tail lights


Likely there's a wire loose that's shorting to the chassis. The way I troubleshoot these is to put a lightbulb in the fuse socket, and then go under the dash, and move stuff around while somebody watches the light. When it goes on, you're close to the problem. Yeah, it's a royal pain, but that's the best way I know.

Tail lights went out, but break lights still work....what is going on???


Bulbs have 2 filaments in them so that one bulb can do the same as two. One filament runs for brake and turn signals the other for the tail lights. You need a set of 1157 bulbs with the flat plastic ends. If new bulbs don't work you may have a wiring or switch problem, but they die at the same time a lot more than people think

Tail light fuse blowing


If it has a towing package harness,it might be in it.Remove all the tail light bulbs,and put a new fuse in to see if the fuse will blow.If it does,check the head light switch ,and the dimmer for the dash lights for a short.If the fuse does not blow,with all the bulbs out then look for a bad light socket shoring ,out,by putting one bulb in at a time,and when the fuse blows,that will be the socket that is bad.

One of the tail light bulbs can be shorted internally.  Replace the tail light bulbs first.  Try this cheap fix first.

54 plate vw toureg v6 when i put heater on in car the drivers side blows hot but passenger side blows cold...any ideas???


Hi, this is a problem with the blend motors, in the dashboard, there is a recall at vw for the heater flaps making a noise and this may also cure your problem, give them a call.

Good luck Davelee

No brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park


I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.
