Question about Subaru Impreza
The fuse to the tail lights and the parking lights keeps blowing, sometimes instantly other times it last a couple days
Posted by Anonymous on
You have an intermittent short circuit to ground somewhere. Start at the back of the car, and remove the tail light assemblies, with the bulbs disconnected. If you have an aftermarket towbar fitted, look for shorts on its wiring. Look for any squashed on burned wires. Put in a new fuse and add bulbs till the fuse blows to track which circuit has the problem.

If it only happens when you turn the switchto the parking lights then it is most likely the swich that is the problem. Light swich failure appears to be a common fault with fords

Are the bulbs out of the sockets and the fuse blows?
Take bulbs out and check again
Place one back at a time if fuse was OK with bulbs out to locate bad bulb.
Do this........if still needed with bulbs out and fuse blowing.
Put a circuit breaker in to replace the fuse of the same amperage.
It will trip off then back on.
Use a standard cheap magnetic compass........place along lighting wiring........the wire with current will cause the needle to jump as circuit breaker trips on and off.
Follow path of current to problem.....the compass will stop moving once past the shorted /grounded wire/connection.

There is a short to ground in your tail/park light circuit. If your blazer is equipped with a trailer hitch, the first place I would look for the problem is in the trailer wiring. Otherwise, the circuits need to be traced from the fuse to the tail lights and/or all of the park lamps to find out where the short circuit is located. Whatever you do, DO NOT put a larger fuse in the fuse block. This will result in your vehicle burning to the ground. (I have seen this several times and it isn't pretty)
If you have a full-size Blazer, it should be a 20 Amp fuse. This fuse also powers your cigarette lighter, so check there also for a problem.
If you have an S-10 Blazer, it should be a 20 Amp fuse. This fuse also powers the courtesy/dome lamps.
