Question about 1996 Chevrolet K3500
I had a left rear tire blowout it took the wiring for the fender extension lights out. The rest of the trip home I had intermitent parking and clearance lights,I have a circuit breaker in place of the fuse. I have rewired and repaired the damage but have no lights I've checked the wiring and the breaker. What have I overlooked?

Somtimes the bulbs get a dead short in them even though they look OK. Install new bulbs or remove all bulbs on this circuit and reinstall one at a time to see if fuse pops. I had this problem with signal lights on 95 chevy 1500 and turned out the back up bulbs were on the same circuit. Bad back up bulb so once truck was in reverse it blew the fuse and then the signals did not work. Cheap enough to be worth a shot.

The chevys with red brake lights and turn signals do two things and I've fixeds alot of them. Looking at the tail lights with the hazard flashers on. both sides flash with nothingeles on? Or are the hazards yellow? if they're red and the third eye does work the turn signal switch is possible problem but it doesn't let the blubs and the circuit boards in the taillights out as they can fail and do some really bad stories the wires for the brakes and the turns and the hazards are the same ones and if the turns look right and the hazards look right then the turn signal switch transmites the turn too as this doesn't work part of your story can't be true

If a GFCI trips or causes a breaker downstream to trip, something needs to be altered. Do not by pass a GFCI. It is designed to save lives and property.
It's drawing a lot of current. The most likely cause is the cord you are using is too light (14ga. or higher) or too long.
Depending on the length, extension cords should be 12ga, minimum, preferably 10 ga. When in doubt, go heavier.
The block is supposed to heat up, not the wire.
