Change out the bulb out, the bulb may have blown but then welded back together causing a high current draw and the fuse to blow. Hope that helps.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

How do i tace the cuuse


trace the cause of a lamp fail 97 wrangler.
fuse blow for shorts, (preventing the fire)
so, there are only 3 ways to find shorts,

  1. visual inspection ever inch of shorted wire, (luck happens)
  2. pull all loads off the wire feed, is short not gone (BINGO?>)
  3. use an AMMETER, this is what we use, to get them all.

one nice way to find shorts,(not wanting to blow 100 fuses)
is to remove the blown fuse ATC and put in a Circuit breaker ATC fuse in that place, not it trips , cools off and repeat the trip
this allows for fast testing (meter) and pulling loads, checks.

your car is jeep TJ
and the wiring is free here.
the schematic tells you all things that can short to this node.
click wiring,
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service
Tail/park shorts, (lots of loads, the highest of all wires it is)
answers USA only not export and no DRL light option.
we are tracing the complex path called PARK (tails)
see chapter 8W that be IT.
and page. pdf page # 8w-40-7 (pdf #93)
turn the dash dimmer to lowest, still blow fuse.
no, then the short is not in cab (easy huh?)
so parks are shorted, see 8W-50 (pdf 134)
see park there/ see those fues # which one blew, that is a big CLUE.
my guess is fuse 1, (others are head lights)
F1 blows
main HL switch park pin 9 ,black yellow wire feed.
see that?
see 8w-50-4 then page 5 , see all rear parks.
then see page 8w 70-20 for fogs.

there you go... i cant teach you how to use and ammeter.
so google that.
see all those junction C connectors, all can be pulled to isolate that short.

see connector C110 , pulling that isolates front parks
conn C322 , pulling that isolates tail parks.

as you see park feed is hug (simple) but huge, lots of places to short
and big time short if trailer wiring hacks are on car. look first.

My fuse keeps blowinng when i turn on my lights but the headlights ,blake lights and turn signals work but no tail or parking lights


If the fuse blows, you have a dead short to ground somewhere, likely around the tail lights or parking lights. Try this:

Get a box of the correct fuses.
Remove all tail and parking bulbs and put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, try installing each bulb at a time to see which light assembly causes the fuse to blow.
Let's suppose its the RH tail light assembly. Pull it off the car and check for dirt and damaged wiring.

If this is an older vehicle, there may be wiring damage (due to rust) in the harness under the carpets.

What type of fuse should be used for the tail and dashboard lights to go on


you have a short to ground or accessories like bulbs or other circuit on the same fuse take more current then the fuse rate.
example: the circuit fuse is rated 20 amps an the circuit draw 24amps at peak ,the fuse will blow even no short to ground.

My tail light fuse on my92 s-10 just keeps on blowin and when it blows my tail lights and my inside dash lights doint work, howcome it would b doin that??


Check your tail light and other running light sockets for corrosion.
Pull each and every bulb to check it, also check the back side of the socket.
(Your headlights are not part of this circuit.)
Rust or water with rust will conduct enough current to blow the fuses.
Please revert back to the 20 amp fuse, as you may damage the wires leading to the bulbs in places you won't be able to find or fix.
It's unlikely that it's one of the actual light bulbs, all light bulbs tend to go open instead of shorted, but you can check them too.

Tail lights, turn signal and hazard lights, dsh lights not working. when i change the fuse it blows


If the FUSE blows then it is confirmed that the circuit is SHORTED and so the heavy current drain make the fuse melt off.
So it is important that the circuit is traced to find the short. So remove the bulbs of the light circuits and check the holders, check the wiring harness, see for damage on the sections where the harness passes through. Now without the bulbs replace the fuse. If the fuse blows then the harness can be short to this circuit sections.

Tail lights do not work TAIL_FUSE burs out every time I Replace it


The fuse is blowing due to a high current draw.
You could have a high resistanc connection or a short in the power wiring to the tail lights

Tail light fuse keeps blowing. I have traced the wiring back to the tail lights and it all seems fine. I have taken out the turn signal lights and the light switch, put in to the first position for parking...


Are the bulbs out of the sockets and the fuse blows?
Take bulbs out and check again
Place one back at a time if fuse was OK with bulbs out to locate bad bulb.
Otherwise.......
Do this........if still needed with bulbs out and fuse blowing.
Put a circuit breaker in to replace the fuse of the same amperage.
It will trip off then back on.
Use a standard cheap magnetic compass........place along lighting wiring........the wire with current will cause the needle to jump as circuit breaker trips on and off.
Follow path of current to problem.....the compass will stop moving once past the shorted /grounded wire/connection.

FUSES KEEP BLOWING FOR THE DASH AND TAIL LIGHTS


your lights are grounding out some where you will have to check for a dead short in the wiring use a volt meter in the resitance mode and track through you power side of the lights untill you find your dead short, start at the back and work your way to the fuse box pull the fuse and follow the wire. there is a short in it it will just take some time going through look for worn coating, cracks, or melted.
good luck & and happy hunting
