Blowing fuses to the tail lights and parking lights


You have an intermittent short circuit to ground somewhere. Start at the back of the car, and remove the tail light assemblies, with the bulbs disconnected. If you have an aftermarket towbar fitted, look for shorts on its wiring. Look for any squashed on burned wires. Put in a new fuse and add bulbs till the fuse blows to track which circuit has the problem.

All indicators have stopped working


You have the wrong bulb in!

The bulb with the offset pins is a stop / tail bulb, it has two elements and two contacts on the bottom. Typically they are 5 watts element for the taillight and 18 or 21 watts for the stoplight. The offset pins make it so it will only go in one way so the contacts line up to the correct function of Stop light or Tail light. Some cars have combination stop tail bulbs, some have a single 18 watt bulb at the back. The FRONT light indicators are always a single element.

You can see the two elements, the two contacts and the two offset pins in this image.

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.
