Check your tail lites to see if you have rust or a grounding on the hot side of the wire seating or the wrong bulb or wrong fuse.

Try to narrow your problem down. Remove the globes from both tailights, does it still blow a globe? Remove both light housings from car and disconnect cables, does it still blow a globe?

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.

My 1997 buick lesabre keeps blowing fuses. first it blew the turn signal fuse which is a 20 amp replaced it with a 20 and it blew when i turned on the signal. put in a 25 to see if it would work and it...


I strongly suggest your first priority will be to discover why your tail lights are seemingly consuming many times more current than they should. A 30 amp fuse has less resistance than a 10 amp though the difference is hardly measurable.

I suspect when that is sorted out the other faults could disappear without further effort.

It is time to find a circuit diagram and to trace the tail light wiring from the supply to the lamps in order to discover what went wrong.

Tail lights wont come on keeps blowing fuse blows 10 amp 15 amp and even 5 amp fuses


put a 12 volt light bulb in place of the fuse. It will stay lit until you find the short circuit. Check tail and park light & side marker bulbs first.

How about if you just turn parking lights on, not headligths

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

Left tail light out on 02 S10


I had this same symptom after I pulled a trailer that had light "issues". I tried wiggling the trailer light connector around until the trailer lights begin working. Next think I know they were not working again and now my left tail light was out. I thought it odd that is wasn't both lights out being on the same fuse, but checked wiring etc with no problems found. Mine turned out to be the "left tail light fuse" in the engine compartment fuse box. All of the parking and tail lights as independently fuse, You can tell which one it is by the guide on the fuse box lid. You will be looking for a 10 amp (red) fuse near the center of the fuse box.
