Why when i turn on lights fuse #16 blows and i lose tail lights, turn & break lights work though.


You will probably get a better answer if you repost and give the make, model, and year of your vehicle. But the most likely cause is a shorted wire to metal contact somewhere in the circuit that fuse protects. Check the owner's manual, if you have it, to find out everything that is on fuse #16, but assuming it is just for the tail lights: usually the tail lights are a separate circuit, no other circuits involved. The turn and brake lights are on a separate circuit for sure, as a safety precaution. So, somewhere between that fuse and the tail light socket, or including the sockets too, and the headlight switch, for that matter, there is a short that is blowing the fuse. Ever heard a little sparking under the dash, or smelled burnt rubber when the fuse started blowing?. Any snagged wires hanging from underneath? There are some neat electrical gadgets that help find shorts or bad wires, Fuse Buddy, Short Finder, things like that, kind of pricey, most of them, but you might find a reasonable tool. Otherwise probably a lot of digging, pulling harnesses apart to find wires, checking for power all along, etc., if you have to just start following a wire. Better invest in a multi-meter or a test light, and a wiring diagram would help to keep track of any changes in the wire colors you are following. See if you can unplug the bulb sockets at the tails and then see if fuse still blows. Finding shorts can get so frustrating it will chase you into bars-beware.

What could be the cause of my 1994 Isuzu Rodeo to keep blowing the #1 fuse for the tail lights and dash lights?


More likely coming from the tail lite area. Check all bulbs, replace if the filament looks black, even if it works. Next look underneath car for wire(s) hanging or broken and grounding out on chassis or other metal. Must be something shorting the circuit to ground or a bulb drawing too many amps.

I have a 1995 nissan pathfinder. i keep have electrical issues. when i first got it two months ago it wouldnt start. replaced battery terminals and it was fine for a while. then the meter fuse would blow...


It sounds like just the one problem. Your tails and the dash illumination lights are all on the one circuit that the fuse keeps blowing. Don't get confused thinking of another main fuse, just focus on this one circuit..
It is very seldom that a short develops at the fuse box, it certainly can happen from corrosion or loose terminals, but it is rare. More likely is a bad wire just like the one you found near the exhaust. Somewhere very likely a wire has had insulation stripped or scraped off, soon as the wire touches metal it will blow the fuse. Were any other wires damaged in that harness for the speed sensor? Or do you see any wires hanging down from under the truck, anywhere going back to the tail lights?
If you did the stereo yourself, were any wires cut going to the dash? I doubt this as the wire for the dash lights would be in a wiring harness that is like a bundle from under the dash up to the instrument cluster. You just have to keep looking for the short.

My tail lights and dash light doesn't work. I replaced the fuse, and as soon as i put the fuse in, it blows immediatley. What can cause this? Please help.


Check around the tail lights for rust. There is a dead short somewhere. Could be on the drivers side under the strip just inside the door on the floor. Usually you have to take four to five screws out to expose the wiring. I found one time where the left foot would rest that the wires were rotten causing a short. Electical problems are not fun. Happy hunting.

I have a 1995 Maxima, and the brake lights keep going out as the 15 amp fuse under the dash keeps blowing. The tail lights themselves work, and all the other lights work. No brake lights will work. I'm...


TO SIMPLIFY,fuse box-pedal switch-tail light cluster,maybe something inbetween but hardly likely...start with cleaning the contacts for the brake bulbs as they may have verdigris on the brass connectors,then change the switch,then worry.

Rear tail lights/Dash lights keep blowing fuse why would this be ?


There is an electical short somewhere in the system, it could be a power wire shorted to ground, or one of the components has failed and caused or created a short. (burnt wires in circuit or in part)

Tail light fuse blowing


If it has a towing package harness,it might be in it.Remove all the tail light bulbs,and put a new fuse in to see if the fuse will blow.If it does,check the head light switch ,and the dimmer for the dash lights for a short.If the fuse does not blow,with all the bulbs out then look for a bad light socket shoring ,out,by putting one bulb in at a time,and when the fuse blows,that will be the socket that is bad.

Tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it


you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.
