Fuse for radio/interior lights on 2000 Odyssey keeps burning out

We tried to replace the fuse for interior lights/radio and each time we put it in it shorted out immediately. We don't really know what to do next.

Kudos to the original posted solution. I had about an hour and a half of time into this car and was heading into the navigation/radio area when I found this post.
The radio on this vehicle has failed and has a intermittant short. replace radio and all is fine.

Replaced battery in 2000 mitsubishi galant no radio no a/c no interior light?

Sounds like because of the corrosion, you may have a bad connection on the power side of the battery. If you have a fuse blown it will probably be one in the underhood fuse box. You need to check for a blown box fuse if it has them.

I changed the stereo in my 1993 pajero now the dash and parking lights don't work what could this be

To start, a fuse. The radio receives a signal or feed from the interior lights so that it will dim or brighten with the interior and dash lights. during the radio installation it may be that this wire was left off and not insulated, or used as a power lead, etc.

Start by checking your fuses, the interior dash lights and exterior marker lights are on the same fuse, so start by finding a burned fuse, replace it with same size, and then do this: Without turning the key on at all, try your lights and see if they work... if they do not, and the fuse blows immediately, that wire is shorted to ground, either touching a metal part of the inner dash or hard-wired incorrectly to the radio. It may be that it was mistaken as a ground wire during the change-out.

If after replacing the fuse, the lights come on, then turn the radio on and see if it blows. Whether it does nor not, the first place to check is the last place changes were made. If you return to check the wiring to the radio and cannot find the problem, disconnect the radio entirely, turn the lights on with a good fuse in place, then reconnect the wires one by one, keeping an eye on the lights, when they go off (fuse blows), that is the wire that is either mis-assigned or can be left off. Most newer radios are all led and it is not necessary to send a signal to it from the lights. Good Luck!

Fuses keep blowing

Something in that system is giving FEEDBACK into the system and burning up the Fuses, disconnect each system Individually and plug each one in one at a time and if the fuse does not burn out, then unplug it and do the next. When the one Burns out, then you have the Exact cause and then troubleshoot.

My Experience is the RADIO is the culprit

1999 toyota camry gauge fuse blowing up

You now know the fuse only powers the cluster.
A mechanic would check for shorts to ground at the connector for the cluster. The gauges are grounded thru the sending units.

Illuminating lights out fuse is blown I replace fuse and it blows as soon as I turn on the lights what should I do next 1999 izuzu Rodeo V-6 standard

By your description I assume this is an interior light. You will need to trace the wires going to the lights and find the one that is grounding and causing a short. You might be able to remove all the interior bulbs and replace the fuse then after turning them on if the fuse doesn't blow replace them one at a time till you find the one that has a problem and trace that wire back. Make sure you check any spices you may have added to install Amplifiers or Radios that didn't come with the vehicle.

Interior light and radio not working

It's not a fuse, It is the internal wiring, the wiring from your dome light to your wiring harness is bad.. have you recently put in an aftermarket CD player?

99 dodge ram fuse 12 that controls mirrors, interior lights and radio, blows out everytime you put one in. none of these things works at all. fuse was blown when i got truck, replaced it and it blew out...

Along side of where the door closes, is the plastic trim between the carpet and door jamb . Unscrew this piece of trim, a wiring harness runs along it, as well as the seat belt module under the seat wiring. What I found was one of the screws rub the harness and shorted out the system. Repaired the wires ALL GOOD!
