Check wires for incorrect connection @ a short to ground if you installed an aftermarket radio its more than likely you connected the illum light wire to ground also check your dome switch & door pin switch for binding

1989 chrysler new yorker dash and dome lights and fuse problems


You have a direct short. Take the bulb out of dome light, inspect the socket. Try putting fuse back in while bulb is out. If the fuse blows again, Id say it's in the wiring from the fuse box to the the switch. If the dome light fuse also covers other electrical things, such as lighter, check the socket at all points. You mentioned that other fuses were replaced as well? Which ones, and why did they blow? Sometimes it could be moisture entering your fuse box, or condensation near the computer, but is sounds more like a short. Could be as minor a a bad ground wire, or a chafed wire. While you are putting the fuse back in, it will help to keep your eyes looking around the fuse box for sparks as soon as the fuse goes in. You should also listen for that electrical snap. If this doesn't help, I'd suggest taking head panel down and follow and inspect the wires from dome down to the switch. Then from switch [ which could also be the cause ] to fuse box. look for hot spots, arcs, and bare spots. I hope this helps you out. keep me informed

Pull the electrical connector to the visors out of the headliner and disconnect it from both visors, see if the short goes away.

What causes fuses to blow after there replaced.


A fuse blows when there is too much current drawn thru it. Let's say it is for the radio. If the radio is turned off and the fuse blows immediately then the power wire to the radio has a bare spot somewhere and is touching the metal of the car or the power wire is touching the negative wire. If it blows when you turn it on then the radio has a short inside or a malfunction causing it to draw too much current.
Let's say it is for the dome light. If you put the fuse in with the door closed and the dome light is set for DOOR and blows right away then the short is in the wire leading to the door switch or the switch is shorting out, letting + touch the - metal body of the car. The entire body is negative. That is why there is usually only one big thick black wire on the battery for negative. If the fuse blows when the door is opened, then the switch is probably shorting out, or the wires going to the dome light.
Generally when the fuse blows when you turn something on, then whatever you are turning on is probably junk, unless it is a stereo that draws too much power for the thickness of the wire, or the stereo is junk.

Taillights go out when dome light is on


I'm not an expert on the electrical part of the 04 maxima. But I noticed on one of the websites I normally visit that it could be a blown bulb on the passenger side vanity mirror. Here's the quote:

2004 Maxima Tail Lights and Parking Lights fuse blows when interior dome light is on Discovered that my tail lights and parking lights fuse (next to the window washer box which took me a couple of hours to find!) would blow everytime I turned interior dome light on. First I thought it was my Ipod and then maybe moisture was getting in through a small crack in the left rear tail light. Sat in my car last night with a box of fuses and did everything one at a time. It was the turning on of my dome light that caused the fuse to blow. It was instant. I have a blown bulb in the passenger side vanity sun-viser flap. I will change that tomorrow and post an update.


He hasn't updated on the results of changing his vanity mirror bulb. I hope this helps...I hate car electrical problems...So hard to diagnose...

This could be a component or a wiring fault. It is easier to check the components so:-

1)Remove lamp and insert new fuse.

If fuse goes again, disconnect stereo, replace lamp and fuse.

If fuse does not blow the dump stereo.

If fuse goes again, trace the wiring and

If it still blows, then the stereo is likely to be faulty

Interior light fuse blows


Have him or her check for a ground issue or a bad wire somewhere. You should not be having to do this. This is some sort of electrical issue in the wiring most likely a grounding problem
