Tail light fuse keeps blowing

Every time i hit the brakes in my 2005 nissan sentra 1.8 it blows the fuse. it requires a 10a fuse. i replaced it with a 20a fuse and hit the brakes and found out that every time i do the brake lights, front blinkers, and the dash lights come on. what should i do? should i replace the brake switch or will i need the wiring diagram to see where the short is?

2005 nissan sentra brake lights not working blows fuse when brake peddle pressed. i put a fuse in and when i press the peddle the fuse blows is this the switch that needs to be replace or the ascd


have a look at the fuse. If its all black and you see small bits inside you have a dead short in the circuit. Check the wiring for any metal to wire contact, especially at any points where wires touch any metal. If its just melted in the middle but did not blow violently its overloads the circuit is drawing too much current for too long, look for fused contact or stuck relay etc.

Tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it


you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.

Dashboard and tail lights out on 97" Nissan Sentra


I took my pathfinder to U-HAUL and asked them to check the towing lights. There was a pinched wire by my tail light and they cut it and changed it out for me, it was $5. I am so glad that I didnt take it to Nissan. My second step was going to be getting a new dimmer switch..but the guy who worked on my car said that wouldnt be the problem. He also told me that replacing a fuse that kept blowing out was dangerous and after the first time to get it checked out. Learn something new every day!!
