reverse lights get power from a reversing switch and hove a separate circuit
check for correct bulbs in the holders as a duel contact bulb in a single point contact holder will short and blow fuses

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

My 2004 maxima rear lights dont work but brake lights do can it be a fuse or the bulb


Could be either one. I'd start by checking the fuse, and if it is okay then checking the bulb. Both sides could have the bulb go out at the same time, but it is more likely the fuse, and the brake lights work off a different circuit. Hope this helps. Good luck :O)

We have no back up lights, no brake lights (except the 3rd brake light on the rear window), no license plate light and no tail lights. Replaced the 10 & 15 amp. fuse and it blew (almost) as fast as we...


Does the fuse blow without using the lights or only when you step on the brake? Only when you switch to reverse? Only when you turn on the parking lights? Troubleshoot to which lights are causing the fuse to blow, then access the bulb socket to see if it is shorting out. Remove the bulb(s) and look into the socket for corrosion and burning/melting. Replace any sockets that apprear to be damaged. Let me know if you have more questions.

TO SIMPLIFY,fuse box-pedal switch-tail light cluster,maybe something inbetween but hardly likely...start with cleaning the contacts for the brake bulbs as they may have verdigris on the brass connectors,then change the switch,then worry.

Would you like a factory manual? You're going to need to start with checking all the bulbs for corrosion and damage. Then trace the rest of the circuit. You are probably going to find moisture in the high mount stop lamp. If you need the manual, email me at iambanshee74@yahoo.com

2003 silverado 1500 v-6 brake lights dont work


ljones, Did you check the "VEH stop" fuse in the left side instrument panel fuse box. There are 3 stop light fuses, 1 for all the stop lights located in the under hood fuse box. 2 in the left side IP fuse box. 1 for the upper stop light and 1 for the lower stop lights. The fuse box in the IP is where the upper and lower stop lights split. Let me know.

Brake Light Fuse & Gas Gauge


Start by replacing your brake light bulbs. If it still blows the fuse, them your brake pedal switch. If it still happens then you have a shot circuit in your wiring between your fuse panel and your brake lights.
