You shouldn't have replaced the switch... it was probably good from the start

your key words "fuse just keeps blowing"
that means a wiring problem / got to trace the circuit and find where that wire is short circuiting to power is the only fix for this situation

Stuck in park,power windows don't work,reverse lights don't work dash doesn't work. keeps blowing 10 amp fuse for reverse lights.changed brake pedal switch didn't help


of course changing a brake pedal switch will not help in a reversing light problem
they are two totally different circuits
check for a damaged wire at the reverse light switch or bulb holder for the reversing bulbs for a dead short
as for the rest check the IGN fuse under the bonnet

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Dash lights and tail lights don't work


Lights and electrical circuits are sometimes in pairs so that you notice something is wrong (tail lights and dash). On a '90 merc grand marq., that would be fuse #4,the 15 amp blue one, in the panel next to your left foot. If you are lucky,it
just failed from age. If you are not lucky, there is a short in the system containing
the dash, tail,parking,side marker, license lamps and trailer tow relay if equiped.I had to replace the push/pull main light switch which was shorted. If you are lucky, just replacing the fuse in the panel will do it. Referance Grand Marquis Owners Manual for fuses and function.

Tail lights wont come on keeps blowing fuse blows 10 amp 15 amp and even 5 amp fuses


put a 12 volt light bulb in place of the fuse. It will stay lit until you find the short circuit. Check tail and park light & side marker bulbs first.

How about if you just turn parking lights on, not headligths

I have a 1996 dakota with no tail lights. The brake lights work. I think it may be a fuse, but I don't have a manual to see what fuse it may be,????


Why would it be a fuse?
You have front parking lights? Then no fuse

If it was a fuse ---would that fix it -- NO it wouldn't
Why do fuses blow?

Have you even removed the tail light housing & checked the bulbs,
or checked the sockets for ground or under truck for wiring
harness issues?

Don't need a manual to check all fuses under the dash &
in the box near brake booster

2000 Jeep Cherokee #7 10 amp fuse


You will have to check the positive wire of the wires that go to the parking and side marker lights for a short to ground.Check the easy things first like the bulbs for these lights.It could just be a shorted bulb.You can remove one at a time and see when the fuse stops blowing.You an get a short finder from a part store and save the trouble of getting a bunch of fuses.Hope this helps.Good luck.

No parking lights, fuse keeps blowing.


There is a ground not connected or a wire open that is causing it to blow

10amp fuse keeps popping


check each of the terminals of those bulb you mentioned. wonder if there's a relay associated to this circuit, check for short if this is the case. remove all the light bulbs [of course - the dash may not be necessary (it's a PITA) & let's hope that it's not the culprit]. visually inspect those bulbs & replace if something unusual. put back the relay if it has no short, turn on the switch, let's hope the dash lights up & it won't blow the fuse anymore, otherwise look for uninsulated wire touching the chasssis or ay metal part of the car. you may continue replacin the bulbs.
