    With all due respect, a bad ground will not cause a fuse to blow - only a feed wire that is shorted to ground. Something coming from that fuse is touching ground somewhere.

You have to look at a wiring diagram and unplug circuits that are fed by the same fuse until it stops blowing the fuse. Then you have to find the short on that branch of the circuit. Very time consuming, even with all of the diagrams.

2004 Chevy Impala lowbeam headlamp socket/connector burns--though bulb is fine. Replaced once already and now same socket has burned again--and the bulb is still okay. What gives?


Hi Miles, Have you replaced the head lamp bulbs and maybe used a higher output? That can overheat the fuses and or the connectors. The over heating and damage will usually be caused by loose connections causing high resistance and heating. Make sure the connections are tight. Regards John

I have a 2002 chevy impala and suddenly both headlights stopped working. They do not come on even when I pull out the light knob to turn them on manually. Everything else works fine including the high...


It's possible that both low beams have burned out. These modern bulbs are bright enough that sometimes you don't realize that one burned out, before the second one burns out.
You need to check for voltage at the headlight with a volt meter or test light. Or you can replace one bulb and see it works.
I suppose it's possible that a relay or fuse is out. You might check the owners manual for the fuse location.

DRL WORK BUT NO TAIL LIGHTS OR DASH LIGHTS AT NIGHT


I FIXED THIS ISSUE IN MY CASE. NOT TOO HARD IN A FEW MINUTES.

I didn't know there was another fuse box in the crevice of opening the passenger door. It helped when I found that out in the owners manual.

Narrowed things down by checking to see if I had rear parking/running lights since I heard this was also the dash light fuse.
*I did not have these rear parking lights coming on, just when I would apply the brake*

Sure enought that 15A fuse was blown, its in the passenger side box. I heard in my searching for a fix that this fuse also controlled dash lights. Sure enough it does! ( I have 2000 base model 3.4 impala)

SO, Things worked after that, UNTIL I MOVED MY ASH TRAY IN AND OUT A FEW TIMES!!

The dash lights flickered a bit when I moved the ashtray in and out and after a few times I heard a POP! and no more dash lights just like before. Fuse was blown, and I didn't have another 15A that wasnt plugged in making something work. My ashtray light had not been working for the last while by the way.

SO, I pulled out a 15A fuse from the the slot that said CIG on the passenger side, I never use the 12v ports anyway. (used it for the rear parking light/dash light slot to get the dash lights working again.)

*But, the dash lights looked a little lazy, meaning I could see a bit of a powerup happening over 1-2 seconds to full illumination*

SO. then I went in the book and found out what fuses that had anything to do with the ash/aux outlet sliding tray which was good at popping the fuse that lit up the dash. I wanted to disable the ashtray light and 12V ports in the tray to be safe.

I already pulled the appropriate 15A fuse on the passenger side which I used to bring the dash and rear parking lights back. But also, I decided to remove the 10A fuse on the drivers side that was for the accessory outlet. ( it might have been labelled CIG?)

Dash lights come on fast and solid now, sliding the tray does not have an influence or cause flickering.

My car is old enough that I don't care about having to rearrange fuses to make things work, If end up needing the 12v ports I can put the 10A fuse back in since the tray needs to be held open anyway.

I hope this helps.
