    When tail olight fuse blows does anything else go out (like dash lights)? You will need to isolate wiring and trace back for shorts. or faulty switch.

SOURCE: tail lights

I had this same problem with a nissan. When I hooked up the aftermarket stereo there was a wire for lumination and the aftermarket already has this covered so hooking it up blew the fuse for the tail lights.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: fuse for instrument & tail lights keep blowing

if its blowing fuses, you have a short(power being touched to ground) Electrical can be hard to trace. Find you a wiring schematic for you vehical and trace each wire, look for loose connections and possible wires melted to each other. Hope this is a help.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 2002 Isuzu axiom cluster lights and tail lights out

Don't try a higher fuse , it just makes things worse by adding extra burn to the problem.. First make a test lamp with a 21w bulb ( indicator size) .You now have a bulb with two wires attached , insert the "test bulb" across where the fuse should be.
When you switch on the circuit concerned it will glow BRIGHT as it is getting a POS (+) and a NEG (-) ie blowing the fuse (short circuit) in the fuse box and therefore a BRIGHT bulb.
As you disconnect and eliminate or disturb the problem the bulb will immediately glow DULL ( in series contact now) and no longer a short circuit . As you check the circuits the illumination will change and, your on the money ! Let's know how you get on , Good luck

2001 cherokee xj. Tail lights and dash light fuse keeps burning out. Replaced light switch in dash, still burning out fuses. Do I need to replace the tail light harness.


if the fuse keeps on blowing it is because of too much current being used by the lights you may have a bare wire in the trunk touching something causing a short circuit or one of the tail lights may be damaged if you have had something in the trunk EG. a tool box or the like that has been moving around while you have been traveling,you need to check for any damage to the lights or wiring.....hope this helps......cheers.

Break Lights won't come on in my 1988 Jeep Comanche


Why replace the whole fuse box? That's rediculous. If you can't find the fuse box, just fix the affected circuit. Did they check the brake switch?
