Question about 2004 Saturn VUE
Replaced the headlight/turn signal switch and the running lights stopped working along with the dashlights. and when you turn the headlights on maually the park fuse blows but the headlights stay on. ive replaced the drl relay, took out all the bulbs, checked grounds and have search alot but not all of the wiring and no burnt wires. no i dont have trailer lights, and this vehicle doesnt have a headlamp relay or park relay just the fuses, also not automatic driving lights. please friggin help me do not want to take this to the dealer!
Just have to check for short circuit that's what blows the fuse.

Does it go completely black or just dim? Most displays dim when you turn the lights on to make the display darker so its not too bright. GPS and other displays do this. Do you have any problems with any other of the car's electronics?

The fan may run with jumper wires but if it''s blowing the 30 Amp Maxifuse it's needs a new or used fan motor.It's pulling too many amps.I have almost never seen a fan relay concern.Only other thing you may check is the wiring down near the fan shoud I have seen the 2 wires get loose from the conduit & melt onto exhaust manifold.Hope tHis Helps

On your bulb. It should be labeled DOT 12V and then have something like 45W,50W, 55W or whatever wattage your bulb is. If it doesn't, then the bulb is not a proper bulb. I've seen a lot of people installing aftermarket bulbs that burn the wiring and harness because the bulbs draw much more power than the wires are designed (I've seen some install 100W bulbs for 50W harnesses)
If the car was purchased new and the bulbs are the original bulbs, then I don't believe they would. In that case, I would be lead to believe it is an issue with the harness, which could cost upwards of $100. You could splice in a new wire (14GA and better recommended). I don't think headlights are covered under warranty, but you could give it a shot and see what they say.

SOURCE: Replace headlight bulb
actually according to saturn you must remove the front bumper to remove the headlight to be able to replace the bulb,,,if you got small hand you can remove the front part of the inner fender liner and go up thru there and do it,you cant see it ,, you gotta feel it,yes dumb idea i agree,i gotta work on them all day

it is probably the wiper motor,its building up to much resistance and blowing your fuse
