Hi, I have a 2009 Ford Territory ST, the fuse for the tail lights keeps blowing

I replaced fuse but as soon as lights are switched on it pops. The dash lights and audio dimming are also affected. Any advice on where to look? Thanks Gavin

Fuse pops on taillights and brake lights


My information shows, the 4th. fuse is 8A for Turn signals, Tail lights, Heated mirrors:
The 5th. is 16A for Brake lights, Shiftlock, ABS.
You should check carefully to see which fuse is blowing and what circuits it controls.
You are then able to trace those circuits to locate the short.

Does the fuse blow as soon as you plug it in or only after you turn on lamps?
Your front and rear park lamps and tag lamps all get voltage from the same source. When testing, did you unplug the front park lamps to see if fuse still blows? You don't have to blow all your fuses, you can a test light between fuse terminals, If the lite comes on, the circuit is still going to ground.

2001 mustang v6 automatic convertible keeps blowing fuse #10 (park, tail lamps)


The fuse doesn't blow till you turn on the light switch? If it blows before turning on light switch, look for a short to ground between fuse box and light switch.
If it blows after turning on light switch, I believe they make a short finder tool.

1986 RV blows instrument panel fuse when switch pulled


The headlight switch has a rheostat built into it to dim your dash lights, it may have shorted out. As soon as you turn on the switch this rheostat comes into play and is probably whats blowing the fuse. I think if you replace the headlight switch, it will solve your problems.

Blows fuses when parking lights are turned on. Headlights work fine even running lights.


If it only happens when you turn the switchto the parking lights then it is most likely the swich that is the problem. Light swich failure appears to be a common fault with fords

Fuse keeps blowing for my tail/instrumnet lights '98 ford escort


Here is an easy start. Start unplugging things. Start with the tail lights. 1 then the other. Then unplug the instrument lights then maybe the switch itself. after that its gonna be a matter of pulling trim panels to find the culprit (dashes and kick panels are common areas for this to happen). There is also another means too. when you unplug the item in question you can use a Ohmeter and use the black to a known ground then you can start touching wires to see which one has no resistance to ground. then you will need to trace that wire which can be a pain. As you can see this can get progressively worse as time goes on, but be patient and methodical and you'll get it figured out soon enough!

Tail light fuse keeps blowing on my 1995 geo prism


Took it to the shop. The side marker lights were missing on my son's car. The wiring loops from the side marker lights to the tail lights. As the wires were touching in the front, they shorted out the tail lights. Capped the wires, problem solved!
PS: ordered side marker lights, too.
