Indicator fuses go out in drive

I keep blowing indicator fuses on my 4runner. They work in park and in reverse while testing, once I put the car in drive the fuse blows. Any ideas what this may be caused from?

    Hi Jason, when you say Indicator fuses, do you mean the lights the say P R N D 4 3 2 1 ?

    Those lights are fed off a main fuse on my Tacoma. Which one are you blowing exactly.

SOURCE: unsure if promblem is fixed. Blowing efi fuse.

The most common reason for the EFI fuse to blow is the wiring is rubbed through somewhere in the engine wiring harness, this fuse supplies power to many EFI parts on the engine, always look for shorts where the most movement is, the engine is that place, most likely the next time you go down a really rough road the short may occure again, carry a few fuses just to be safe.

SOURCE: Reverse causes fuse for instrumental cluster to blow

Yes there is a reverse light back up switch located on the side of the transmission it will be the only 2 wires going to the tranny. There might be a short in the switch itself or the power wire to switch might have a bare spot where it might be grounding out on the vehicle somewhere.

Mitsubishi l200 indicator lights keep blowing a fuse

Put in a fuse that's rated 5 amps higher than the ones you are currently using. This won't harm anything. Otherwise you may need to install a current dampener on the line.

The transmission is in "D" but the tach is showing as if it's in "2". It's not shifting as it normally would in "D". I put it in "2" and it there's no change. I put it in park then neutral and that all...

Your shift indicator is simply stuck. Until you have the time to fix it, your best solution is to start from park then slowly shift to the next setting which is reverse, then neutral then park. All automatic transmissions shift pretty much the same which means you only have to move 3 notches the opposite way from park to be in drive. You don't need a shift indicator for that. Later you can replace the indicator with a dealer factory replacement.

1995 4runner automatic 2wheel drive 3vze 6 cylinder, can you help me? the number ten fuse keeps popping, fuse pops for all gauges, problem got worse over time, any help would be appriciated

This is a +12v short. Remove the fuses that blow. Install only the one(s) that will allow you still drive. If it blows then you may be on the right circuit thats the problem. If it does not blow add another fuse untill one blows. Start by making sure all conectors to the fuse box are tight. Put a +12v circuit indicator at the input to the fuse. Have a partner start wiggling the lines from the dash area and see if the +12v light flickers.
I'm assuming this happens while driving. A wire is loose or bare and touching metal. It's a tedious operation but it need to be isolated.
Good luck

Transmission shifter is "frozen" it won't move

It's a fuse issue. Part of the shift interlock system.

If the radio is also not working, it's the cigarette lighter fuse. This one fuse controls the cigarette lighter, the radio, and the shift interlock system. It's in the kick panel fuse box on the driver's side.

If it's not that fuse, it's the "Stop" fuse in the same panel. Both blown fuses create the same behavior.

Easy fix! Don't bother with a mechanic. If the fuse continues to blow, take it to be checked.

Good luck.

Fuse keeps blowing

Sounds like you have a wiring problem. May want to begin by determining which circuit is causing your fuse to blow. If you are not mechanically inclined, I recommend you take if to a trust worthy repair shop.
