Disconnect the visor map light/vanity lights (at the connector) one at a time, the short should go away.

Thinking of buying a new car? Ha-ha. Not a good idea, fuse blowing for a reason & adding a higher amp fuse could start a fire. How long do they stay on, long enough to see if one is dimmer or brighter than the rest? Might have to do the process of elimination, or to save fuses, pull all the ones out that are easy to get out & try it, if o.k. start replacing one at a time until fuse blow & you find the culprit.

You may have corrosion in the lamp sockets or a leak in the windshield that has allowed moisture to accumulate in the instrument cluster causing a short of some kind.

Fuse blowing on interior light/ remote


Was the bulb the same size and watt as the one you removed? Did you possibly cause a short in the fixture. I do not recomend using a larger fuse due to possible wiring dammage (risk of fire). Check the bulb for size and wattage/voltage check the holder to make sure it is not grounding out. Carefully check each step 2x.

1997 Buick Lesabre parking lights fuse keeps popping. I put a new fuse in and soon (sometimes seconds, sometimes a day), the fuse blows. Brake lights, head lights, reverse lights are OK. Is it most likely...


If the bulb is of too much wattage maybe but is more likely the wiring is grounding to the frame at some point. You are of course, using the proper fuse....
