Look closely at the cover. You will see a small slot. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver, and pry it off. Very easy..

SOURCE: tail light fuse keeps blowing when lights on at

I have the same fing problem with my 2002 Land Cruiser. I have taken it to the dealer 4 times. The only luck I have had was removing the tire tools from where they were stored by the rear tail light. It has been 3 months since they last blew. Hopefully that will solve the problem until I swll the truck. My Toyota dealer scked and was - 0 - ZERO - 0 - help. I will not buy another toyota due to my experience at the service department.

check for loose bulbs and dirty earth points. Bulbs blow because of power surges normally from bad connections and loose bulbs.

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

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...

The interior light bulb in my suzuki swift 2006 keeps blowing. I have had to change the bulb twice in a month


I haven't got a solution. I just have the same problem. The interior bulb regularly blows, about every couple of months. The local dealer suggested roughing the contacts with emery cloth, which is almost impossible to do.

F350 horn blows and dome light comes on randomly


Is the battery fully charged.
Sounds like you have a short in or near the fuse block. Best taken to a good mechanic to have it checked.

1997 Crown Vic blows radio fuses


The quickest way to find a short circuit is by putting a bulb in place of the fuse. Anytime the time the bulb lights there is a load. And if the load is a shorted wire the brightness of the bulb will give you a hint. So while you're at it, finding a 'short' is a quicky...keep your eyes on the bulb. gotcha!
