Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Galant
Replaced alternator, a week later fuse 15 (indicators, fuel guage, tacho, reverse lights )blows. Has blown with fuel guage disconnected, once blew as reverse gear was selected.
Sounds like a minor short somewhere.... firstly check around near the Alternator for any possible wires in the wrong place..... but I doubt if you will see anything wrong.... This COULD be an Auto Elec job.... but check first just in case it is a loose wire or something

SOURCE: reversing lights not work
sounds like it could just be the reverse sensor located on the acctual gearbox under bonnet, you can tell which one it is as it is one of possible two.

open up the wiper motor. you will find a gear system . it is probably frozen. clean it weel and use new grease. it should be fine. also check the carbon brush on the armature.

You have short circuit between battery positive terminal and chassis.Follow a cable from battery to an alternator.If O.K. remove alternator and check all diods- 6 pse.Also check cable from battery to a starter motor.

Make sure that is the correct amp fuse for that ,the alternator,also,check the large wire on the alternator,make sure it is not touching anything.

SOURCE: 100 amp fuse in engine
For the 100 main amp fuse to blow it has to be a alternator issue , ECM or dead short with the electrical part of the ignition switch.
If the alternator is replaced and still the fuse blows then check the actual electrical contacts of the ignition switch to see if they are shorted out.------
Check the wire between alternator B+ (large wire) and battery for problems. check negative ground wires to chasis and motor. --------- Also recheck all battery, starter alternator and ground wires and see , that no wire is connected in reverse order.------ Also try cleaning the 100 amp fuse socket with contact cleaner and then install the fuse and see , if it still blows.------Many a time fuse socket itself gets dirty and cause fuses to blow.------ Getting this possibilities checked should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
