Sounds like you have a dead short in the system. What that means is you have a positive going directly to ground on that circuit. Whatever you do DO NOT TRY TO USE A HIGHER AMPERAGE FUSE. It will potentially smoke the harness and create more work. I recommend that you take to a shop to get this one figured out. One thing you are going to want to let them know about is any recent electrical work you may have had done such as stereo installation or lighting repair. Good luck!

SOURCE: Blows fuses when parking lights are turned on. Headlights work fine even running lights.

If it only happens when you turn the switchto the parking lights then it is most likely the swich that is the problem. Light swich failure appears to be a common fault with fords

SOURCE: 2006 f150 keeps blowing turn signal fuse

It sounds like the fuse is doing what it is supposed to do, and burning out when there is a short circuit. Check the wiring from the fuse block back to the lights and pay special attention to the trailer connection.

I have a 2004 chevy surban that keeps blowing the ignition fuse what can cause this


You have a direct short to ground on that power feed circuit . You need to find a power distribution diagram to see what all gets is power from that fuse . Isolate the circuits till the fuse doesn't blow any more , then trace out that circuit that blows the fuse .

Which Ignition fuse ? Which fuse box is it in ? under hood , passenger compartment ?
IGN A
40A
Ignition Switch RUN, START, RUN/START/ACCY
IGN B
40A
Ignition Switch RUN/ACC, RUN/START
Could be ignition switch problem , Chevy has had problems with them .

Windshield wiper fuse keeps blowing


Since you Disconnect the motor also renewed the switch and is still blowing the fuse ,it is obvious that you have either broken wire between the switch and the motor. Try to test the failure by means of a tester circuit. Good Luck.

1986 RV blows instrument panel fuse when switch pulled


The headlight switch has a rheostat built into it to dim your dash lights, it may have shorted out. As soon as you turn on the switch this rheostat comes into play and is probably whats blowing the fuse. I think if you replace the headlight switch, it will solve your problems.

Blowing fuses


THIS IS PROBABLY TOO LATE BUT HERE GOES.

THERE IS A CONNECTOR UNDER THE STEERING COLUMN FOR THE LIGHT SWITCH. THE WIRES GET HOT AND DAMAGE THE CONNECTION. THE BEST THING TO DO IS **** CONNECT THEM TOGETHER.

1995 tahoe 4x4 fuse just started blowing last night?


Its most likley the switch causing the fuse to blow, but you should start by disconnecting the front axle switch first and see if the fuse blows, if it doesnt blow, that switch is bad, if it still blows, plug it back in and disconnect the front axle acuator and see if it blows, if it doesnt blow, replace the acuator, if it still blows, then do the same with the relay, if it still blows, the short lies in the transfer case switch.
