Fuse blow for brake lights as soon as i put it in i have no brake lights


check the wiring after the fuse to see it there is any where it is touching earth. The brake light switch under the dash at the top of the brake pedal would be a good place to start as the live wire may be off and touching the metal.

Brake fuse blows as soon as replaced 2001 ford taurus


That usually means short to ground..Look for a wire touching the frame or the body of the car somewhere..Check around the brake switch which is located on the brake pedal...Disconnect the connector and try the fuse again..If it doesnt blow then i would think the switch is bad..Also check around the brake lights and make sure the wires look ok..That is if your talking about the brake light fuse

Ikeep blowing the brake light fuse


Hi

There is a switch under the brake pedal that presses down when you put your foot on the brake pedal, this iluminates the brake lights, they are plastic and do crak, when they crak the 2 wires can touch and this blows the fuse.

they are tricky to get at as you have to be on your back looking up into the drivers footwell, you should be able to feel it though, easy to do once you get to it, also try some wd40 on the switch if it looks ok.

I have a 2002 suzuki xl7 and when you press the brake pedal it blows the fuse, cruise control and horn are on the same fuse, when you blow the horn the fuxe does not blow but as soon as you push the brake...


It will be the brake switch that the pedal operates. It may be that the same switch is used to de-activate the cruise control when on. And it's on the same circuit as the horn, so when you have no horn, you know you've got no brake lights. Go to you Dealer and get a new switch - they have been modified a long time ago.

Brake lights blows fuses


Please check the brake light wiring there must be somewhere where the live wire is touching the body (earth -) and thus the blowing of the fuses.
Since the plug in had melted so must have the wires insulation top melted somewhere and its now shorting.
Hope this helps.

Brake Light Fuse


You have a short in the lighting system. Try removing both brake bulbs and with a new fuse installed.. does it still blow the fuse? If not, then install one bulb at a time and repeat the test.. You probably have a short in or around the bulb socket.. Hope this helps

Start by replacing your brake light bulbs. If it still blows the fuse, them your brake pedal switch. If it still happens then you have a shot circuit in your wiring between your fuse panel and your brake lights.
