You have a wiring sort, most likely inside steering column or maybe near steering shaft around brake peddle. I hope this helps, Lee.

Yes it screws in on right side of tramission and you will need a 7/8 inch deep socket to remove it. You may be able to clean the old one once it is removed. There is a little ball thatgets dirty and may you can get by with cleaning it. Good Luck. Ed

check transfer case electrical switch, sometime if it bad it will also blow the fuse. don't recommend you put any higher fuse than recommend, If the fuse blow there is a short some where and by putting higher amp fuse you might short or burn something else beside the fuse. if that check out than check your transfer case motor, might lock up and not allowing the motor to turn instead it short the fuse. don't drive the car, just leave it in park, put correct fuse amp back in and unplug transfer case electric switch and turn the key on (dont start the car) and see if the fuse blow; if not plug it back in and see if it blow the fuse. if that is not the case, unplug transfer case wire, and do the same and see if it blow the fuse.

SOURCE: I have A 2000 Chevy 3500 Express Van and the brake

Hi,

When you said that you checked the brake switch, did you check it live? Meaning verified live power to the switch, press switch, and then power came out the other terminal?

If so, also verify zero power on brake press, at the offending brake light bulb terminal. You must verify the test light each time you move it...leave running lights on...

After verifying that there is no power coming, after the brake is pressed, note the wire color and find it where it comes to the steering column and test there... This would eliminate wires and connections between front and the rear of the vehicle, unlikely, but needs to be tested.

After verifying no power at that terminal, then yes the t/s switch is certainly suspece. This may be the time to get a mechanic to verify and replace the switch, there are locks, tilt mechanisms, air bags, column bearings, etc involved. Failures risk loss of vehicle control (locking or binding for example.)..

Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

Fuse keep blowing


Sounds like a short in the wiring to the reverse lights or another part of that fuse. Often shares fuse with shift indicator. Also could be bad fuse block. Good luck.

2003 Chevy Malibu back up light fuse location to be replaced.


Backup Lamps
The B/U LMP fuse #42 in the underhood junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the park/neutral position switch. When the driver places the gear selector lever in the REVERSE position, the current flow is from the park/neutral position switch to the backup lamps. The backup lamps are grounded at G401 and G402.
Are you also having shifting problems ? If not , I can tell you it's not the fuse ! Wiring problem, the bulbs , park/neutral position switch !

(#23fuse)No turn signals/backup lights - keep blowing fuse. hard to get out of park.


You have a short to ground on that circuit , you need to look at a wiring diagram an see what all is on that circuit . It's hard to get out of park because this circuit supply's power to the shift interlock actuator . You don't need to step on the brake pedal for this fuse to blow ? just stick in a new one an it blows ? This fuse also powers the brake switch , which powers your brake lights .

2002 tracker,keeps blowing 15 amp fuse that runs heatr fan and lets car shift out of park


I looked at the wiring diagrams and those two circuits should be on two different fuses.
The shift lock solenoid is powered by the 10amp turn signal fuse and the 15amp stop light fuse. If the fuse blows when you put it in park, I would say the shift lock solenoid is the problem and the stop light fuse is the one that is blowing.
The heater fan and relay are powered by a 60amp fuse and a 15amp fuse but not the stop light fuse.
Its possible there is a short some where that has connected these two circuits.
You could disconnect the shift lock solenoid to see if the fuse still blows.

Can't shift out of park, no brake lights/turn signals


Had same problem. Our trailer electric wiring harness had a bare wire that shorted when it touched the meatl trailer hitch. This blew a fuse. The fuse that it blew also control the transmission lock out thus not allowing you to shift out of park. I believe it is a 15 amp fuse. Of all the spare fuses in the van there is no 15 amp available. I took the fuse for the heated mirrors and swapped it with the blown fuse. Problem fixed but no heat for the mirrors. Better that than no tranny.

Backup lights will not turn on and cannot locate the fuse box


Turn the key on and don't start the van. just Turn it to on. now pull the gear shift up and down while having someone stay behind watch the back up lights. go from park to drive if the back up lights flash when you go past reverse then your trouble is adjustment. to fix it put it in [R] and adjust the back up light switch.
