I would look at the wiring at the trans range switch and follow the harness back and look for any place it could be chaffing/rubbing the body or grounding out, also does it have a trailer hitch, if so look at the connector for signs of water intrusion or corrosion, if it is all scotch locked together replace those with heat shrink butt connectors

1996 chevy 4 door blazer, i have tail lights, headlights,reverse lights and blinkers but i dont have hazards or brake lights and tried a new fuse and keeps blowing it as soon as u step on the brake


you may have to trace the wiring from the fuse all the way to the brake light globe to see if the wire has a short circuit to the body of the car.

Stuck in park,power windows don't work,reverse lights don't work dash doesn't work. keeps blowing 10 amp fuse for reverse lights.changed brake pedal switch didn't help


of course changing a brake pedal switch will not help in a reversing light problem
they are two totally different circuits
check for a damaged wire at the reverse light switch or bulb holder for the reversing bulbs for a dead short
as for the rest check the IGN fuse under the bonnet

I have a 1994 4runner and it keeps blowing fuse for gauges when I put it in reverse


Sounds like a wire being shorted out in the shift console. I can't remember how to take out the console, but it's usually as simple as a few screws in strategic places (including under or behind ashtrays, cup holders, and storage areas).

(#23fuse)No turn signals/backup lights - keep blowing fuse. hard to get out of park.


You have a short to ground on that circuit , you need to look at a wiring diagram an see what all is on that circuit . It's hard to get out of park because this circuit supply's power to the shift interlock actuator . You don't need to step on the brake pedal for this fuse to blow ? just stick in a new one an it blows ? This fuse also powers the brake switch , which powers your brake lights .

2001 chevy tracker ,what would cause the fuse for brake lights to blow? already tried unplugging wire harness to back of car at fuse block.


This all depends, if the fuse blows as soon as you put it in without stepping on the brake pedal then theres a dead short in the fuse box or the power wire going to the brake switch is shorting out, this 15amp fuse runs from the fuseox to brake light switch, so the short is between that but if it blow with brake pedal pushed then you said you dissconnect the rear brake light at fuse box and fuse still blows so the next step inwhich power is feed from this fuse is the following and you will need to unhook these components one at a time until short is gone. the next location is the the abs brake control module which is by the master cylinder area after that it goes to the cruise contorl servo also under the hood, then it goes to the shifter release solenoid which is very common problem, the wires melt or short out in that area, and next it goes to computer which i dont think is the problem and from there it feeds the rear lights and third brake light. hope this helps, good day.

My brake light and interior dash lights keep blowing the fuse, every time we change it and restart the car the fuse blows again, and the engine runs great, and some times when it is ran for a while you cut...


mcdevito75 here, I would try to isolate the problem with the fuse blowing, ---- sit in the car and step on the brake, without the car running see if the fuse blows, the just put the key to on not strat just on see if the fuse is blow, if it is you may have a problem under the dash, if not, now with the key just on no start, step on the brake see if that fuse is blow, if so you may have a problem at the brake light switch under the dash or at the brake lights themselves at the back of your car, a bad ground, loose or broken wire, inspect if you can. The hard or no starting after you drive for a while could be related or a problem with the ignition coils or ignition module. In any event have your local auto re[pair shop check these items out for you, a short could cause real problems in your car.

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.
