Sounds like a wire is touching a ground. famus for doing it at the parking lights. try to see if you find a bare live wire in the trailer harness if you have one.

Tail lights wont come on keeps blowing fuse blows 10 amp 15 amp and even 5 amp fuses


put a 12 volt light bulb in place of the fuse. It will stay lit until you find the short circuit. Check tail and park light & side marker bulbs first.

How about if you just turn parking lights on, not headligths

I keep blowing the same fuse. under the hood how can i find where the short is?? It the fuse for the dashboard lights and tail lights?? Dashboard lights for sure.


do you have a tow hitch? if so start at the wiring for the tow package usually corrode and short out the lights. if you don't have tow package harness at the back then i would be looking at the front side marker light wiring, if dash lights are effected it means problem is in the park lights only.

2001 ford explorer tail light and dash board lights are out


The dash and tail lights are on the same circuit. Ck your fuses under inst or tail, More than likely it is a fuse. If the new fuse blows, let me know.

FUSES KEEP BLOWING FOR THE DASH AND TAIL LIGHTS


your lights are grounding out some where you will have to check for a dead short in the wiring use a volt meter in the resitance mode and track through you power side of the lights untill you find your dead short, start at the back and work your way to the fuse box pull the fuse and follow the wire. there is a short in it it will just take some time going through look for worn coating, cracks, or melted.
good luck & and happy hunting

Tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it


you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.
