Why does my turn signal/ hazard light fuse keep blowing out


you have a short in one of the light sockets or a worn wire from the wiring harness. could be the flasher assembly. are the turn signals different bulbs from the brake lights? Does using the brakes blow the fuse? (Rear lights or brake light switch on brake pedal). left or right turn signal blowing the fuse will tell which side has the short. 4 ways only, replace the relay.

Hi, I have a 2004 Corola and I recently had my flasher fuse replaced 3 times in one day. When I tuen the flasher on it will work fine until I stop and the fuse causes the car to turn off. Do you know


no my answer, dont buy that $500 PCM yet.
the Gauge fuse , see bottom left, above. runs lots of things,
the FSM covers this, fully 100%
it runs the Flasher module, the ECM, the integration module (BCM like) that runs interior lighting and many things off the IM.
if the fuse only blows, while blinking , id inspect all 4 corner lamps
id check the wires there and then replace all 4 lamps. if you
dont know how to bench test a lamp. then just replace them.
Gauge , (funny huh) runs the Alternator, if it shorts, boom the Gauge fuse blows. as you can see finding a short is not easy,
you never said how soon it blows. so,,,,, if quicky, id run it
with no alt connected. rear plug IG Plug pulled. do so for no more
that about 15minutes, the battery will drain fast (no head lights please,or fans for heater, no electrical things on, flashers on for sure.)
see???
there are 30 pages, to see all IG1 power feed wires.
i didnt try to find them all.
but that is my point, if you dont have the book or alldata.com login
then all this is pure wild speculation and guessing.
I did this for a living, so ,know the ropes.
once I have this information, i then use my ammeter to find it.
see a area MASTER here, do that.

in your case you know what fuse blows. (stated wrong)
and with that , fact i can attach my ammeter, and the pull
modules to find which one has the active short.
in the case if the blinker module is passing excessive current
I then drop off the lamps loads from the flasher module
if that shows that my short is gone then the lamps are shorted.
i can even measure all 4 lamp wire feed to read this short with my ammeter and my CB.
using this.

How to fix turnsinal in 1991 pontia sunbrird

Would a bad Flasher relay cause the brake lights not to work?


The flasher does not stop the brake lights from working. Check # 18 fuse in fusebox under lower left side of dash. if it's ok, the brake light switch, on the brake pedal arm is next. light green wire with red stripe is hot if fuse 18 is ok. Depress brake pedal, light green with no stripe should have power. if not, replace brake light switch. If light green wire has power with pedal depressed, combination switch under the steering is next. Remove the cover from around the combo switch {under the steering wheel}. depress brake pedal, light green wire should have power. If it does, pedal still depressed, orange with light blue wire & wire with light green & orange should have power. Those 2 wires are brake & rear turn signal wires. { The turn signal switch should be in the middle, not right position or left. while checking for power in the last 2 wires. Good Luck drvolt.

No brake lights 3rd brake light works just put all new bulbs in.checked all fuses even under the hood,does this vehicle have a flasher fuses because those dont work either. both turn signal and rear lamps...


car should have an emergency flasher. If it isn't working, it could affect the brake lights. might be the same unit as the turn flasher but different relay inside. Is your fuse panel behind the glovebox? manual says flasher is in the fusebox. It's worth a try replacing this flasher unit. Looks like this:

The blinkers and flashers are not working on my 2001 Grand Cherokee. Can you tell me where to locate the relay or switch to replace? Its not the fuse, we checked that first. thank you


when you get in your car and use the car turn signals and it does not work from the inside or out side and your hazard light dont work to then you need to replace the fuse located inside the front hood in a black box or inside the car located under the stering wheel next to the gas and brake pedle on the side. Remove it and check the fuses and flasher relay. The flasher relay in a black square looking fuse that has 3,4, or 5 prongs. That is your problem of why the hazord lights and blinkers are not working, you can go to a part store to find the flasher relay for 9 to 15 dollars max. Napa has more of a selection. PS.... when you find the flasher and its burn out it is no good ; make sure the volts match!!!! If you buy a flasher and it burns out instinly after replaced then wireing is short and go with less volts you hace to ballance things of your car was worked on before, things where changed. Check you lights in front and back brights and dim, brakes and reverse lights. replace bulbs if needed could correct the problem if flasher still doesnt let blinkers or hazord work. If bulbs where replaced and still no blinkers or hazord lights then you need a new or used (another) switch nob. You can go to a local junk yard and take off what you need off the same car you have and pay for it then replace it on your car. Or you can go to amazon ebay or such to find. If you are a WOMEN or OLDLADY or some one not good at removing parts then this is not your job. Find someone who can help, or pay something that could be so easyily done. I hope this solves your question.

Where is the Electronic Flasher for Turn Signal located on 2001 Ford F150? Rear driver side blinker will not work. Replaced bulb - not the problem. Checked fuses too.


The problem is not the flasher will check if you have good negative light does not work or is safer than you have problem in the switch that selects the direction left or right.Thanks

I have 1998 S70. The turn signal fuse blows. I


The flasher unit will not cause an overload in the circuit.Activate the four way flasher and if the fuse does not trip then it appears there is a short in either the left or right signal circuit when the steering wheel is turned.The position of the steering wheel will determine which side is shorting out if this is the cause

REAR BRAKE LIGHTS DONT WORK


This could be several things. First check the fuse in the fuse box. Look at the legend on the box cover or labels on the panel itself. Extract and examine the fuse for indications of it being burnt. If it is change it out with a fuse of the same amp. If the condition persist and you keep burning fuses than you may have a short somewhere.
The other thing that can be wrong is a disconnected wire or poor ground to the tail lights. Check the back of the tail lights in the trunk for the wires being properly secured.

No rear brake light / turn signals on 2001 Chevy Cavalier


The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores
