Check to see if anybody has put a aftermarket plug on the left rear corner of the under the bed for trailer light, they short out and cause fuses to blow also make sure the wiring is not rubbing on the frame and cutting the insulation

Check the tail light assembly for corrosion.instead of a fuse alone,wire a 12 volt test light in series with the fuse.when a short appears say from a bad wire,the bulb in the test light will glow bright.there has to be a short somewhere ,maybe in the wiring.

My dash lights not working? taillights not working? fuses keep blowing?


the fuse for the tail lights blowing all the time indicates a dead short in that circuit
first place to check is the bulbs and the condition of the bulb holders
a single point bulb in a 2 point holder will cause the short as will corroded wires /broken wires

Fuse # 2 keeps burning out


Put a taillight bulb in place of the fuse. It will light when wires are shorted. Wiggle and check wires until the bulb does not burn. You can also get fuses that light up when blown.

Keep blowing taillight fuse on 1995 jeep xj sport country


The taillight circuit includes the front parking lights.
You would need to take the bulbs out and check each socket for a short to ground.

2004 jeep grand cherokee laredo keeps blowing the fuse for the parking lights and taillights


If it "keeps" lowing the fuse, there can be only one reason for it...you "keep" replacing the fuse without diagnosing the circuits to find out WHY the fuse is blowing in the first place.
When a fuse blows, there is a reason for it. If you do not find the reason and correct it, the fuse will continue to blow.

Please also review this article: Where's The Fuse?

With all of that said, the first thing I would check is all of the light bulbs. Sometimes the bulbs get really hot and melt inside and it causes the metal contacts in the bulbs to touch each other and short the circuit out. This is especially true if you can replace the fuse and everything seems to work ok for a while. They will all work until the offending bulb gets hot and "POOF" there goes the fuse again.

This condition can be hard to diagnose since the short circuit usually goes away as soon as the bulb cools off for a few seconds. In cases like this, what I usually recommend to save time and money is to replace all of the bulbs.

If it is fuse #6 (15 Amp) in the Central Junction Block that keeps blowing, it only powers the tail lamps, licence plate lamps, front park lamps and the front side marker lamps. The cost of replacing all of these bulbs is a LOT cheaper than an hour of diagnostic time at most shops. If this does not fix the problem, then you will have to trace all of the wires going to all of these bulbs to find out which one is shorting and where it is shorting. This could turn out to be very time-consuming and expensive, but at least, you will have eliminated the likelyhood that it is caused by a bulb.

My tail lights are not working, it keeps blowing my fuse.


1.Unplug your taillights at the sockets and the front running lights from sockets.
2. put in new fuse after unplugging taillights.
3 turn on taillights if fuse blows then the wiring is grounding out somewhere between the switch, fuse panel, and rear and or front parking lights.
4.If fuse does not blow then plug in one socket at a time keep rechecking fuse. when the fuse blows after plugging in a certain socket suspect that one to be bad and replace.

No brake lights


Check the bulb sockets for rust and corrosion. They may need replacing. Also, check to see if the taillight covers are damaged. Water getting in can also cause your fuse to short out.

Fuses will blow out when there is a wire that's grounded out somewhere. Take the brake light sockets with the bulbs in it out of the lens and check for a wire that's broken or maybe corroded. Something is grounding out when you hit the brakes.
