Headlight keeps blowing


use the process of elimination, disconnect both headlights at the bulb and put another fuse in it and see if it blows. if the fuse blows without the headlights plugged in then its the wiring to the bulbs. if the fuse doesn't blow while the headlights aren't plugged in try plugging the lights in one at a time to see which headlight or socket is shorted. possibly corrosion at body to ground connections near the headlights, you may not see the corrosion, remove the ground wires and sand those ground wires down..

What would cause the number 9 maxi fuse to blow?

The first time this fuse blows you could assume that heat and age were the culprit. If it is replaced and blows a second time you will need to check for an improper ground (broken wire or loose ground wire or bad connector) at each device powered by the fuse.

I have a1994 gmc Sonoma. Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing. Dealer said it was fuel pump. I replaced it and it still will not hold a ffuse. I disconnected the fuel pump wiring harness and it still blows a...

Somewhere you have a ground fault in the wiring system. Sometimes if the O-ring on the fuel pump assembly is bad it allows a improper ground. Be sure to also check the fuse box wiring to assure that all grounds are tight. Some fuse boxes have multiple grounds.

On my 1972 duster,when i blow the horn,the fuse blows and the tail lights go out also. the same fuse runs both.what could be the problem?

This sounds like the horn may have a short in it somewhere. Does the horn blow at all? Try this: Make sure you have a good fuse installed to this circuit again. Disconnect the horn and place a volt/ohm meter set to DC volts on the horn connections. If there is just 1 wire going to the horn, put that wire on the red wire of the meter. Put the black wire of the meter to a good ground, preferably the negative battery terminal. Now press the horn and see if there is a reading of around 12 Volts. If so, replace the horn. If not, and the fuse blows again, check the wiring for a fray/short to ground. When you're looking at the horn of course, make sure the positive lead isn't shorting to ground as well.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need any more assistance! :)

Reverse lights fuse blew

check the wire because if the fuse keep blowing there's a wire somewhere on the car that has contact with the frame so everytime you put your car on reverse the 12V wire shortcut on the frame so the fuse blow check all your positive wire and your bulb as well
Good luck

Blows fuel pump fuse

The most common thing when a fuse blows is a short to ground condition. A short to ground is basically a wire that is being grounded in the wrong place. If the wire has a any open spots touching metal it is grounding out in the wrong spot. Seeing that it is blowing fuel pump fuses, your problem is in the fuel pump circuit. Check the wires running along the floor board on the driver side. You will have to use a wiring diagram to know what wire exactly. You will have to remove the tape around the wires to get to the wires. Look for breaks or exposed portions and repair correctly.(a saudering gun) I have the same problem right now and have started to look for the short. Is your alternator bad?(making loud growling noises)
