Did you see the Small Black Squares inside the Fuse Relay Box under the Hood? These are Relays. There should be a Relay that says "Illumination" OR "Lights" around this area. Change this Relay and it should be ok. They just Cost a Couple of Bucks. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can get ! Thanks!

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: left blinker light stays on solid when headlights are on

I have had this happen and it is rare, but I have had a filiment burn out in a two filment buld and short to the other filiment. It does happen and I think this might be your problem, the only way to find it is a visual inspection of each bulb. I am sure many people will think this is crazy, but I have had the exact same problem, I had the schematics, tested the circuits,etc. and them by accident found a stop/blinker 1157 bulb that had done this exact thing. I hope this helps you, check the bulbs in your headlights also.

OK there is a short in your car
take all the light bulbs out of the light that trigger the problem this break the current place one bulb in at a time checking that the fuse has not blown this will pin point where the problem is
once you find the problem you can replace the socket as it may have started to corrode check for water
once you replace the socket you should not have a problem
if you do let me know

Fuse pops on taillights and brake lights


My information shows, the 4th. fuse is 8A for Turn signals, Tail lights, Heated mirrors:
The 5th. is 16A for Brake lights, Shiftlock, ABS.
You should check carefully to see which fuse is blowing and what circuits it controls.
You are then able to trace those circuits to locate the short.

I HAVE AN 02 IMPALA AND MY INSTRUMENT LIGHTS AND TAIL LIGHTS DONT WORK WHEN I TURN ON THE HEAD LIGHTS


Check the fuse box and look for a blown fuse. If the fuse keeps blowing, then there might be a bad wire somewhere or the brake light sockets may be corroded. That can cause problems an cause fuses to pop. Hopefully, it's just a blown fuse and and not too bad of a problem.
