SOURCE: T100 tail lights & dash light keep blowing fuses

If this vehicle has a trailer harness, that could be the problem; it could be shorted out. Additionally, if there is no trailer harness, look under the truck bed at the rear, look for a grey wiring connector that wires come out of, and run to the taillamps. I have observed corrrosion in this connector, which will result in a short circuit. You may find it necessary to cut the connector out and resplice the wires back together (eliminate the connector), if severe corrosion is indeed present.

What would cause a fuse to blow out as soon as the battery is plugged in?


If problem on wiring circuit somewhere, replacing the parts won't fix it. If fuse 17--10 amp that fuse circuit is hot all the time. You have a short. Disconnect the wiring connector from generator, does the circuit still go to ground. Instead of blowing your fuses, use a test light across the fuse terminals, if the lite comes on, the circuit is still going to ground. Some don't like to use test lite for that test, but, anyway.
Could be problem with fuse box or the wire circuit from fuse to generator. Make sure generator wire connector doesn't show any signs of heating/melting or anything.
If you think the problem is the white wire with black tracer, you might leave a pigtail wire at both ends, hopefully the pigtails are good, then splice in a new wire for testing. If that fixes it, then make the new splices permanent and route the new wire properly.

HI. My Yamaha D80 while playing gave a burned smell and than sound quit. Rest works. I opened rearcover and notice 3rd fuse in the back was blown. Changed it. Blew again. So I stopped fidling around.


If the fuse blows and a smell of burning is present then its obvious there i a fault somewhere ahead of the fuse, the fuse is a protection device.

I have a 2000 Mercury Villager and the fuses for the turn signals and brake lights keep blowing. Why?


A burning smell is an important symptom of something VERY WRONG. Get it towed to a repair shop, and get them to trace the wiring harness.

Miata fuse box - 80a now welded into the fuse block - HELP!


Pel, the 80 amp main is bolted into the fuse block. Disconnect battery, metric 10 socket removes the block by the 2 bolts on the engine side, same size bolts on both side of the block, remove them both have ring connectors, be sure to reconnect them when putting back together. I did this same thing last monday during a hail and rain storm.

New fuel pump, ccrm and fuel filter and still blowing 20 amp fuel pump fuse


If the components are all good, then check wiring connectors and wiring circuits, it appears the problem is after the ccrm. wiring from ccrm to fuel pump. For testing you should be able to use jumper wire with inline 20 amp fuse, from voltage to fuel pump connector, to see if it will run w/o blowing the fuse. As you can see from ccrm to inertia switch there are two connectors. From inertia switch to fuel pump, one connector. There are many ways to test. With connectors unplugged, you could use a test lite connected to battery voltage, touch correct wire terminal, if lite comes on, that circuit is going to ground, somewhere.
See that one wire that goes down, wire circuit from ccrm to inertia switch, that wire goes to pcm, I believe it to a monitor circuit, the pcm monitors the voltage on that circuit.

Noise and burning smell from heater


Yeah.
Pine needles get into the heater box and clog the heater fan motor's "fan".
You also may have rodents in there,making nests.
The wife was smart to turn off the heater fan B-4 the fuse blew.

120 amp fuse


It sounds as if your battery may have come to the end of it's life and needs replacing. You need to get someone, preferably a garage to check your battery. If the 120 amp fuse is blowing then their could be other electrical faults on the vehicle. Do not replace the fuse without getting the battery and electrics checked out first.

The power window will go up and down but smelled like it was burning inside the door then when I put my lights on the tail lights blew out and the fuses i put in it.


The power windows & tail lights or not likely on the
same fuses or circuit

I would address the smell of something burning first
If you have to remove the door panels & look things over

Leave the fuses out for now that blew

You need wiring diagrams after an hour or so
of checking out the tail lights

Fuses only blow from an overload or short,sort of
one in the same

I would be looking for wires rubbing that are in the
circuit that blew the fuse

We can not help at all without having the car,it
may be a time consuming process to find & resolve

If any thing was added to the car that is not factory
or anyone recently did work on it,I would go there first

Battery, starter, and alternator good, but car won't start, or hesitates to start. What is wrong?


Check your fuses first under the hood and under the dash. Better hope they blew before you did major damage. If you find the ones that blew check what they ran and start checking out your electrical system in that area.Hope whatever started burning was just hot wires and not a ruined electrical system. If there is extra stereos wires or security systems installed (not factory) check that area and if possible disconnect them that may take care of the problem
