If you have a trailer hook up, check that the wiring is not touching ground. Constant fuse blowing is an indication of a short to ground.

you obviously have a short to ground on one of the wires to the back (if it was the front the brake shouldn't blow the fuse). the most common problem is usually in a trailer light harness. if you look under the drivers side rear of the truck, down under the tail light there will be a plugin junction. pull this plug-in apart and see if the fuse still blows. if it does then the problem is forward of that connector, if it doesn't then the problem is behind that plugin. be sure to check for "green death" (electrical corrosion) at all joints especially any trailer hook ups.

98 chevy silverado:


There is a short in the electrical circuit that is protected by the fuse. If this fuse protects the tail lamps then there is s short in the wireing from the fuse to the tail lamps, the insulation on the wires could be could be broken and shorting againt the bodywork.
If you cannot find the fault, the quickest solution is to rewire the faulty circuit and bypass the faulty wiring.
If you cannot DIY then you need an auto electrican to find the fault and fix the problem.

First check all fuses. If they look good, more than likely brake light switch is bad. Switch is mounted just above brake pedal under the dash. Small plastic switch w/a couple of wires coming from it. Easy fix.

Run continuity test from brake switch to brake light connectors. Sounds like a short in the wire.

90 chevy silverado lights not working


You must have a bare wire at the back of your truck that's shorting out where gravel stones have pounded the outside coating off. If you have an after market trailer plug on there, you might want to check that out too. The connections to your main wires from the trailer plug, are never done properly, and always cause problems somewhere.

I have no brake lights, no hazzard lights, but the signal lights work. Wiring has no breaks, but the fuse blows as soon as the brake or hazzard lights are used.


there is a short somewhere-try disconnecting all components on that circuit,put new fuse and try using one,if the fuse still blows,problem is in wiring or switch unit,if not,plug one component in and a time until the fuse blow,replace component
accordingly.make sure there is no slightly shaved wire touching the chassis,this will show when all if d/c'ed and fuse still blows,good luck
