Replace the turn signal switch. That is what is shorted out. All the exterior lights run threw it except the high mount brake light.

Headlight keeps blowing


Check the amps that are being drawn by the headlights. Compare that with what the bulb should be drawing using:
amps= watts / volts
I am going to guess its higher but not to the point of blowing the fuse for your lights. I would then start checking grounds.
Or, you used halogen bulbs and you touched the glass. I doubt they would both fail at the same time from that.

How to change a light on a 2001 chev cavalier


remove upper air intake splash shield.remove the headlight housing retaining bolts and pull the housing assembly out to access the bulbs.rotate bulb holder counterclockwise to remove bulbs.WARNING YOU NEED TO WEAR CLEAN GLOVE TO REPLACE HEADLIGHT BULBS BECAUSE THEY ARE HALOGEN BULBS. IF YOU TOUCH HALOGEN BULBS WITH BARE HANDS. OILS FROM SKIN WILL CAUSE HALOGEN BULBS TO OVERHEAT BLOW OUT SO WEAR CLEAN DRY GLOVES.

reasons bulbs keep blowning.your head light bulbs is halogen bulbs.dont touch with bare hands.the oils on your hands will make them over heat and blow.so use clean gloves on your hands when replacing the head light bulbs.if all is good.check alternator out put.it could be overcharging causing too much current flow through electrical circuit blowing out bulbs.use a digital volt meter hook it battery with car running battery voltage should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts. if it is 15 to 16 volts too many volts.alternator is faulty.due to lock out features turn off radio before disconnecting battery cables so you wont lose radio playing code.

Engine block amber light


sounds like your check engine light is on. On 99ish 3 series the check engine light was an amber engine in the instrument cluster. I thought 5 series actually said service engine soon. If you cycle your key the bulb check should illuminate all lights. see if you have a light that says service engine soon, if not, the amber engine, is the check engine light.

What fuse controls the backup lights on a 1994 Jeep Cherokee?


I have a 1988 jeep wagoneer limited 4.0. The other night the cops pulled me over for having my amber lights on, along with the red running lights in the rear. I hace replaced all the bulbs with new ones. When I pull the light switch out to the first stop, I get three bulbs that come on in the rear light assembly, two in the red zone and one in the amber, it is the same with the headlights on. The hazzards and turn signal lamps all work perfectly, as well as the brake lights. At night the amber lights in the rear are very bright and this is what the police say should not be on. Does anyone have any ideas where the problem might be? Thank you very much, Thomas

Warning light


IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE REFERRING TO THE TROUBLE SYMBOL FOR HEADLIGHT/TAIL LIGHTS. THE PROBLEM CAN BE WITH A BULB, FUSE, ELECTRICAL CONNECTION. CHECK YOUR USER'S MANUAL UNDER HEADLIGHTS.
