SOURCE: 2004 Landrover Freelander stop/reverse light fuse keeps blowing

I had a persistent problem of hill light warning and TCS warning lights coming on for no apparent reason. There is a wire connection between the stop light switch and the control unit to let the system know when brakes are being applied. Changing the stop light switch cured it. The replaced switch was certainly sticking and the new one was of a different design. Replaced it myself as switch comes with a wiring loom. Need to get on your back under the steering wheel! Not very expensive. My car 2001 TD4

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Windstar speedometer fuse keeps blowing

We had the same problem but when we put in a new fuse it smoked. It turned out to be something with the master cylinder and required the changing of a 20 dollar part by the mechanic and problem solved

My 99 ford ranger keeps blowing fuse # 27. Utube video said in column, scuffed wires to O/D buttonn dismantled column, no scuffed wires Where do I look next?


This fuse also powers , transmission control switch , DRL module , back up lights switch , digital transmission range sensor and the pulse vacuum hublock solenoid .
DRL module is daytime running lamp module . look at the transmission range sensor . Disconnect thing's one at a time till fuse no longer blows or disconnect everything an then replace fuse the connect thing's one at a time till it blows , then you found your problem circuit .

2005 merc grand marquis Headlights keep blowing a fuse


Does your Grand Marquis have head lamps with auto lamps ? Which fuse keeps blowing ? Could be a shorted LCM - lighting control module ?

Lighting Control Module (LCM)
The LCM eliminates the electronic interference and heat associated with the thermoelectric devices used previously. The LCM is a microprocessor-based module that controls several vehicle subsystems. It responds to electrical input signals from various switches, sensors, and external modules..

Keep blowing tail light fuse 45 on my 2002 Pontiac Grand Am?


There is an issue, you have a dead short in the circuit, no quick fix for this. You must first get a wiring diagram of the entire circuit and then follow it until you locate the shorted wire or component.

Interior lights fuse discription


Basically every light that comes on inside the cabin area. Dash, dome, and door lights. All these are controlled by three different areas. Light switch, dimmer switch and the body control module. All the lights have one power source, but three grounds sources.

I am having a problem with my 1996 bmw i keep having to replace fuses because all my lights keep shutting off/ fuses popping


Not sure it will be the control module. If it is a 3 series, they have an issue where the wiring harness breaks and possibly shorts out where it runs throught the trunk by the left hinge. What fuses are blowing may lead to the solution. Let me know and I can help from there.

1987 fiero #17 fuse keeps blowing...any suggestions?


fuse 17 looks like it operates the brake switch/brake lights/ and audiable alarm system. go thru the elimination process such as brake bulbs first(take out) see if fuse pops.after applying brakes the hazard-flasher is on this circuit as well so if u have a tilt steering wheel make sure wires are not frayed inside steering wheel column as well. from there it goes to the audible chime warning module..hope this helps

My fuses keep popping any ideas?


You have not supplied sufficient information so here is one possibility.

If you replace a fuse you must use one that is the correct amperage for the circuit.

Check your owner's manual for the correct amperage fuse for the circuit concerned and make doubly sure the correct one is installed.

If it is the correct amperage for the circuit please supply more information on the problem including which fuse keeps blowing:

1. Is the fuse popping immediately you replace it in the fuse panel and switch power to the circuit or only after a period of time of operating the vehicle? For example, if it is a lighting fuse, does the new fuse blow immediately you switch on the light concerned?

2. What is the function on the vehicle that has the power cut when the fuse blows?

3. Has there been any work carried out on any part of the electrical system or on electrical components of your vehicle prior to this problem arising? If so what was done?
