Increasing the fuse amperage, not a good idea. Will eventually burn up your wiring. There must be a short somewhere. May have to pull dash cluster out and look for any burnt areas. If it is blowing a fuse that is supposed to handle 3 times the juice it should be visible. Having to look is the problem.
It sounds like the ABS pump has failed, or possibly two unrelated faults, could be the ABS sensor causing the light to come on but might be the fuse in the ABS that has gone. Its worth checking these two things first as they are cheaper. Regards Dan
Well your not going to like this but I think I can help im assuming you checked all the fuses inside the car and under the hood ? if there all good
your problem more than likley is in the BCM as it controls the lights and blikers BCM stands for Body Control Module. good luck :)
Obviously all the sensors that control everything that is lighting up in your vehicle are not communicating correctly with the vehicle's computer. You can take your vehicle to your local autozone, they will scan and reset the computer codes for you for free. If that doesn't correct your issues, I would replace the vehicles computer.
the abs light will always stay on even if you pull abs main fuse ,usually its awheel sensor on frt hubs ,broken wire around upper control arm,you can visually inspect,i will not recomend pulling abs light from dash.
Check and make sure you have the right bulbs and fuses installed.
However, it sounds like a wiring problem. Probably at the rear of the
vehicle. If you are in a "snow" area state, the ice and snow formation
can break or pull wires apart. Also, check your ground wires.
