The positive wire in the headlight circuit is shorted to ground someplace, you have to check the wire by following it from where it connects to the headlight back to the switch and then to the fuse block

I came up with schematic diagrams which may help you trace out the circuits. I hope this helps.

The fuse for the left headlight keeps blowing every time i turn the headlight on .I already replaced the switch,checked for cracked wires or bare and still get the same result


Obviously there is a short to ground or a major draw.
You should be able to use a meter to check resistance in the circuit between the light and the fuse.
You said "switch" so have you checked the headlight switch and dimmer switch too ? And does the fuse blow if the headlight bulb is unplugged ?

Dash lights quit, gauges and idiot lights work. Help


It's most likely a burnt fuse. Check the fusebox in the cab first. If none of those match the dash, check the underhood fusebox next. A burnt fuse looks like a burnt light bulb. As long as the metal part in the middle is connected it should still be fine.

Headlights are out but it appears the bulbs are still fine, what else might be the cause. i don't think it's wiring and i can't tell in regards to the fuse but the fog lights are still functional. help


The fog lights should be on a different circuit then the headlights so that's not conclusive as to whether the fuse is good. I assume both headlights are out? Locate the fuse block and look for a fuse labeled hdlmp or similar. If you have a test light, use it to determine you have power on both sides of the fuse with the key on, you may have to turn the headlight switch on as well. If you have power on only one side of the fuse, the fuse is blown and replacing it should get your lights working. However it may blow again as there might be a short. If you have power on neither side of the fuse then there is a problem with the headlight switch, fuse block, ignition switch or wiring. Let us know what you find with the fuse.

Keep blowing fuses for the taillights when i turn on the headlights...everything else works, even the headlights..what could this be? a short in the wiring? bad headlight switch?


short in the wiring. More or less a positive wire is grounding on the body of the vehicle. you are going to have to trace it from the switch to the lights to see where the wire is broken, stripped , burnt or touching.

If it keeps blowing up fuse then you need to check the wiring and make sure the fuse is rated at the correct amps.

No parking lights, fuse keeps blowing.


There is a ground not connected or a wire open that is causing it to blow
