You have a shortage somewhere. The wires are touching and causing the fuse to blow.. Make sure it's the right size fuse though. Hope this helps

SOURCE: turn signals kep burning out fuses

If the fuses are burning out, then there is a short in the wiring or the bulb socket.

SOURCE: i have a 2004 jeep

a wire has to be shorting out the fuse, check all wires and make sure no metal is showing or frayed. If so wrap the wire that is showing with electrical tape to make sure no metal is touching any other wire, this would cause the short, and would pop the fuse. You may want to try a fuse with a higher breaking point as well, i.e. a 20 amp fuse.

I have a 2000 Mercury Villager and the fuses for the turn signals and brake lights keep blowing. Why?


A burning smell is an important symptom of something VERY WRONG. Get it towed to a repair shop, and get them to trace the wiring harness.

My turning signal dont work on my geo prizma what fuse do i change


Turn signals have both fuses and relays. Inside your fuse panel... remember most cars have two fuse panels. One is under the hood and the other is under the driver's side footwell of the dashboard. Read the inside cover of the fuse panel box and it will tell you exactly which fuse and relay go to the turn signals. Look at the diagram carefully and count the fuses and relays to pull out the proper ones. You can easily see if the fuse is burned out when he wire connecting the two sides is burned through. A relay is difficult to check, just buy a new one and pop it in the correct spot.

2006 f150 keeps blowing turn signal fuse


It sounds like the fuse is doing what it is supposed to do, and burning out when there is a short circuit. Check the wiring from the fuse block back to the lights and pay special attention to the trailer connection.

2002 dodge neon keep burning fuses in panel illumination. I replace it but it will and burn out while I'm driving and the driverside taillight turn signal wont work even after it is replaced. P.S Please...


You have a short in the circuit that leads to your dash lights. This is a potentially dangerous situation for which you fuses are doing their job. Do not be tempted to put a higher rated fuse in order to keep them from burning out. Instead, you must diagnose the source of the short and fix it.

Doing anything else may cause a serious short-circuit which might even lead to an electrical fire. If you are not confident in your own ability to find the short, please take the car to a mechanic to do the work.

I hope this helps.

2002 dodge durango fuse keeps blowing for turning signals


You have a ground problem. Somewhere on the wiring, usually where there is a bind of many cables zip tied together heat from a hot lead wire has cause it to melt another wire which is grounding itself with your other wire causing your bulb to burn or a fuse to pop. Check your wiring...this is going to be pain staking but it will solve your issue. This is the cheapest way to troubleshoot the problem. If your turn signals are parallel to each other check the other bulb, maybe that could be your culprit as well. Change both light bulbs first before you check all the wiring. Cheapest first, let me know. Gabe
