Interior lights fuse discription


Basically every light that comes on inside the cabin area. Dash, dome, and door lights. All these are controlled by three different areas. Light switch, dimmer switch and the body control module. All the lights have one power source, but three grounds sources.

The 20 amp stop/haz fuse keeps blowing. I put a new one in but after using the brakes 18 to 24 times the fuse is blown. I noticed that the fus/circuit breaker box under the hood does not have a brake lamp...


Not easy to diagnose. Most probable cause is an intermittent short in the power wiring between the hazard module under the dash and the brake and center stop lights, or a problem with either that module or brake light switch on the pedal. I would start by inspecting the socket wiring and interior of the sockets on the rear light modules.

1989 chrysler new yorker dash and dome lights and fuse problems


You have a direct short. Take the bulb out of dome light, inspect the socket. Try putting fuse back in while bulb is out. If the fuse blows again, Id say it's in the wiring from the fuse box to the the switch. If the dome light fuse also covers other electrical things, such as lighter, check the socket at all points. You mentioned that other fuses were replaced as well? Which ones, and why did they blow? Sometimes it could be moisture entering your fuse box, or condensation near the computer, but is sounds more like a short. Could be as minor a a bad ground wire, or a chafed wire. While you are putting the fuse back in, it will help to keep your eyes looking around the fuse box for sparks as soon as the fuse goes in. You should also listen for that electrical snap. If this doesn't help, I'd suggest taking head panel down and follow and inspect the wires from dome down to the switch. Then from switch [ which could also be the cause ] to fuse box. look for hot spots, arcs, and bare spots. I hope this helps you out. keep me informed

Pull the electrical connector to the visors out of the headliner and disconnect it from both visors, see if the short goes away.

All the lights work except the dash lights. The 5 amp fuses keep blowing and if I put a 15 amp it doesnt blow but no dash lights


DASH HAS A SHORT CIRCUIT.DASH NEED REPLACING BUT CHECK FOR SHORTS IN THE WIRES TO DASH.DONT PUT A LARGER AMP FUSE IN A CIRCUIT TO KEEP FROM BLOWING FUSE BECAUSE IF FUSE DONT BLOW WIRES GET HOT IN THE CIRCUIT THAT HAS A SHORT IN IT AND CAUSE A CAR FIRE.

My brake light and interior dash lights keep blowing the fuse, every time we change it and restart the car the fuse blows again, and the engine runs great, and some times when it is ran for a while you cut...


mcdevito75 here, I would try to isolate the problem with the fuse blowing, ---- sit in the car and step on the brake, without the car running see if the fuse blows, the just put the key to on not strat just on see if the fuse is blow, if it is you may have a problem under the dash, if not, now with the key just on no start, step on the brake see if that fuse is blow, if so you may have a problem at the brake light switch under the dash or at the brake lights themselves at the back of your car, a bad ground, loose or broken wire, inspect if you can. The hard or no starting after you drive for a while could be related or a problem with the ignition coils or ignition module. In any event have your local auto re[pair shop check these items out for you, a short could cause real problems in your car.

Interior dash out, tail lights and running light out, is this a fuse? where is it? Signals and brake lights work but blow fuses when it rains


No interior dash lights and no tail lights on a GM usually means it's time for a new headlight switch. To check the fuse, it's in the middle of the fuse box marked instrument cluster. If the fuse is good, buy the switch. Lights blowing fuses means you either have a bare wire running down the driver's side of the truck or up into the tail light assemblies. There is also a plug in under the box on the driver's side near the bumper that may be getting wet. Hope this helps.
