Question about 2002 Buick Century

1 Answer

Light The fuse for tail lights keeps blowing, but only when the trunk is closed. As the trunk lid is slowly closed, the tail lights begin to flicker, then dim, then go out completely blowing the fuse again. So far unable to find any wires that are directly being pinched or affected by the trunk being closed. Please help with any thoughts!

SOURCE: 1992 Buick Century tail & dask lights went out - blow fuses

I would imagine the mechanic checked the fuses, so i would say it has a bad headlight switch or the power feed to it.

I have a 96 grand am and it keeps blowing the fuse for the tail lights and dash only


There is a short in your wiring.. i would look first near the tail light connector in the trunk.. and around the tail lights. If it blows that quick it is a dead short and you should be able to find it. move wires around and try another fuse.. if it stops blowing look at the last place you were checking the wires.

2001 cherokee xj. Tail lights and dash light fuse keeps burning out. Replaced light switch in dash, still burning out fuses. Do I need to replace the tail light harness.


if the fuse keeps on blowing it is because of too much current being used by the lights you may have a bare wire in the trunk touching something causing a short circuit or one of the tail lights may be damaged if you have had something in the trunk EG. a tool box or the like that has been moving around while you have been traveling,you need to check for any damage to the lights or wiring.....hope this helps......cheers.

I have a 2004 Chevy Malibu. and recently, the interrior lights and Instrument/tail lights fuses keep blowing out. I replace them, and the next day or sometimes within hours they fuses will be blown again....


You are correct,now to find out what circuit is blowing the fuse.If the car was in a accident check that area first.Chances are its interrior or running lights.lets start with interrior lights,install new fuse turn on interrior lights on for 1/2 hour.if fuse blows remove interrior lamp lenses and look for one of the hot wires to be shorted out on the body.To check the tail lights turn off the interrior lights and turn on the running lights.If fuse blows start with any damaged areas,check the trunk area for damage to the wire harness,if you have a trailer hitch chcek the trailer harness for damage.theres no easy fix here,hope I have been some help.Thanks for using FixYa......Ray

I have a 98 Camry and was having problems with tail lights and fuses. I kept blowing a fuse which was making my tail lights not work. I tried paying very close attention to when they would be working and all the sudden not be working. I know it sounded funny, but I told my mechanic that it seemed if I used my trunk, my fuse would blow. Come to find out, the wire was touching the hinges of my trunk. So when I popped my trunk and closed it, it blew my fuse every time.

Hi,

The jiggle method is not enough you have to look at the wires. I just did and I found out that all six wires were broken close to the splice. That splice is located close to the back seat.

Hope it hepls.

No brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park


I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.

Fuses blowing out


Check to see if the vehicle has trailer wiring. You may need to get down and look closely under the back bumper area. Or maybe in the trunk area. Let me know one way or the other.
