You are right you do have a short,but it's easy to fix at the same time it is expensive. In your trunk area you will find a bulb out relay it can be either in the right corner or left corner panel in the trunk area,if not there if may be under the rear deck of the trunk(under the rear window inside the trunk) It might be yellow brown or green.One fron the junk yard will work just as good as a new one.If you are skillful you can open it and solder the burned circuit,but you have to know what you are doing.You also neet to find out if you had a bad bulb that shorted so you can rest knowing that what caused it to burn out in the frist place is fixed.

This isn't a complete answer to this problem, but I thought others might benefit from just knowing how to replace the lights on the license plate. Just remove the 2 screws holding the lenses (there are two of them). You will probably already read some of the instructions posted on the web telling you to unscrew the harness from inside the trunk...do not do this for the 97. All you have to do is unscrew the lenses, they will probably not just drop out so use something to gently pry them out (I used a paint can opener). Once the lenses are off the bulbs pull straight out. Don't turn them, don't twist them, don't push them in, just pull them straight out. If they stick, it's probably due to corrosion. Be very careful that you don't squeeze too hard and break the bulb. If they won't come out use a lubricant that promotes breaking down corrosion like Liquid Wrench or even WD40.

97 geo Prizm. My tail light fuse keeps getting blown. I know it might be because of the marker lights cause one of them fell out and then the fuse got blown for the first time. How do I check and fix the...


Replacing the wiring is simple IF all upi are replacing is the socket. If you haven't already, check the socket for rust, corrosion, etc. Replace if needed. Check and replace the fuse as well as the turn indicator relay (this is under the dash). To find it, turn on your blinker (left or right) and feel for it (you will feel it clicking-assuming its working ay all, it should be). These get weak, and don't make a "clean" connection and can cause shorts at either end of the vehicle in respect to blinkers, hazards etc. Also, make sure that all other bulbs and sockets are in good repair\condition. If the problem persists, than the problem may be a break in the wiring, but not likely. Check all other fuses as well whole your checking the blinker\tail light fuses(s) and relays.

Inside dash lights and tail lights won't turn on in my '95 Isuzu Rodeo, what can I do?


My 97 Rodeo had the same problem. No Tail lights, no. Dash lights. There is also an annoying buzzer that goes with the set telling you the lights are on, there is no key in the ignition and your door is open. (you don't notice it when it's gone but you sure notice it when it's back)
The Fuse (taillight Illum) was good, The Light relay under the hood was good and all bulbs were good.
What fixed this problem was replacing the tail light relay which is located in a panel just to the left of the brake pedal also called the kick panel.Inside there are 3 relays. I replaced the one in the middle and got everything to work.
If you need to identify the relay you can put your hand over it and then turn the lights on and off. The correct relay should click. Mine was the middle one.
Hope this helps someone because it stumped me for months.

Headlights and door locks not working


Fuse is probably blown out. Replace fuses for respective functions. Find the fuse box: might be in engine near battery or below steering wheel. open top and check for blown fuses. Try replacing if blown fuses are found. If all fuses are OK then it is very unlikely that all the bulbs are blown.
