SOURCE: instr. panel and running lights fuse blow when headlights turn on

Do yourself a favor before taking to a dealer. Open the hood and find the fuse box. It will be on the firewall on the drivers side. Open it and fine the low beam relay. Finding it is easy. If you open your owners manual and look up relay in the index in the back of the manual there will be a listing of the relay locations. If you dont have the manual any more. A relay is a black or grey box. There are two diffrent types. The types look like a square and one looks like a rectangle. You are looking for the rectangle. The low beam relay is in the row of rectangle relays closest to the driver's side fender. Remove the two closest to the windshield. The one closest to the windshield is for high beam. Take that one and place it where the low beam is.If that fixes it go to an auto parts store and buy a replacement relay. Then try the lights. Let me know and good luck !

Look for a short on the LG/R wire coming out of the BOO (brake on/off) switch.

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.

2004 Ford Ranger 10 amp fuse keeps blowing no brake lights,abs, turn signals?


Fuses blow because there is an overload on the system. If the fuse blows when you step on the brakes then there may be a short in the wiring from the brake light switch to the lights, abs module or turn signal switch. If the fuse blows when you turn the key on then there is likely a short in the wiring to the brake light switch. Basically you will need a wiring schematic to check the wires at the switch and at each of the loads. Also verify that the fuse is supposed to be a 10 amp fuse. Hope this helps

Why does my turn signal/ hazard light fuse keep blowing out


you have a short in one of the light sockets or a worn wire from the wiring harness. could be the flasher assembly. are the turn signals different bulbs from the brake lights? Does using the brakes blow the fuse? (Rear lights or brake light switch on brake pedal). left or right turn signal blowing the fuse will tell which side has the short. 4 ways only, replace the relay.

Brack lights wont light up on my 1988 ford ranger we keep blowing fuse and put in new brake switch


If you keep blowing the brake fuse than you have a short in the system. Unplug the brake switch. Install a new fuse. If it did not blow than the problem is after the brake switch. Next unplug the turn signal switch, then plug the stop light switch back in and press the brake pedal. Did the fuse blow. If not than the wiring is good in between the two switches. With the turn signal switch disconnected use a jumper wire in between the light green wire (power from the brake switch) and the orange with light blue wire (power to the right brake lamp). If the fuse blows than there is a short in the right side brake circuit between the plug in and the rear socket assembly. If the fuse does not blow than jump from the light green wire to the Light green with orange wire (power to the left brake lamp). If the fuse blows than the problem is in the left hand brake wiring circuit.

most likely caused by a short, could be any were. start with the light assembleys remove it and clean any rusty or coroded spotspull all bulbs clean and or replace .auto parts stores sell an electrical parts wash about 9 to 14 $ . spray as needed let dry and put back together.if it still blows fuses its some ware in the wire s , could also be at the turn signal switch or the brake switch . you would have to get it to blow to figure out witch one it is and witch one it is not example put in new fuse then keep putting on the brakes if not blown then keep doin the turn signal then check to see if blown

The brake light do not work and the fuse keeps popping


Check the wiring. Using a multimeter in ohms to see where its grounding out. If the wiring is not the problem check the turn signal switch. The turn signals and brake lights are wired together when you hit the brakes and use the left or right turn signal it should cancel out by using the turn signal switch. There is also a switch that the brake pedal touches when brakes are applied check the switch to make sure its not faulty. This can also be the problem. I had a early 90's model accord had the same problem.

Let me know if i was any help

Brake lights


If fuse keep blowing, then it is a short. If fuse does not blow, then it is a broken line in the brake light wires, follow the wires down to the fuse. Buy a tester, which costs couple of dollars, to test were is power and were not.
