I think your problem is somewere in the roof behind the head lining and it could be burnt out as its only a small wire and could be rubbing on the metal roof but check the roof light first and take it out and check it 100% at the same time check the colour of the wire and which way the wire is running so if you know were ti look you will no were to start looking

What causes fuses to blow after there replaced.


A fuse blows when there is too much current drawn thru it. Let's say it is for the radio. If the radio is turned off and the fuse blows immediately then the power wire to the radio has a bare spot somewhere and is touching the metal of the car or the power wire is touching the negative wire. If it blows when you turn it on then the radio has a short inside or a malfunction causing it to draw too much current.
Let's say it is for the dome light. If you put the fuse in with the door closed and the dome light is set for DOOR and blows right away then the short is in the wire leading to the door switch or the switch is shorting out, letting + touch the - metal body of the car. The entire body is negative. That is why there is usually only one big thick black wire on the battery for negative. If the fuse blows when the door is opened, then the switch is probably shorting out, or the wires going to the dome light.
Generally when the fuse blows when you turn something on, then whatever you are turning on is probably junk, unless it is a stereo that draws too much power for the thickness of the wire, or the stereo is junk.

Have a short in the Horn/dome light fuse on a 1990 chevy suburban, keeps blowing fuse even when truck isn't on. using a 20 amp fuse and with truck completely off as soon as the fuse is put in it blows...


You will have to trace the wiring. There is a short somewhere before it reaches the actual horn or light. Horns pull an extreme amount of amperage. The relay may be stuck or the wiring to the switch may be bad. My bet would be a shorted switch or relay.

1988 Dodge Omni. I have no park lights or dash lights. I have replaced the fuse multiple times. I have the Chilton's and have traced the hot wire from the headlight switch to the battery with no errors...


then the short is between the battery and switch. so take a test light and hook it on the positive battery cable and the other end to the wire going to the headlight switch (with switch disconnected) if the light is on, start pulling on the harness until it flickers and that will show where the short may be. If the light is off, then wiggle the harness until the light flickers, then find it. either way, you will find it.

I have a 1989 chevy s10 horn radio and dome light not working keeps blowing horn/dm fuse out


Check inside the drivers and passenger side door jam for the little push in type switch. 9x out of 10 one or the other will be causing the short to the dome fuse. These little **** get rusty and also get alot of wear and tear from the door opening and shutting over and over. These switchs are what causes your dome light to come on when you open your door and or likewise they shut your dome light off when you shut you door. A very good way to test to see if one of these little switchs is the couprate is to take and hook up a voltage light into the negative side battery post after you disconnect the battery negative line.. If your voltage light is on than that would mean that you have a short somewhere in your system. Now, since you already know that you are blowing the dome fuse then your already halfway there. With the light on your votage light still on indicatin a short, unscrew the little switch on the door jam and disconnect the power wire from it. Check to see if the light on your voltage light is still indicating a short, if not then you can be sure that the door jam was the coulprete. Hope this is of help.

I keep blowing fuses on my 1989 acura ledgend


What circuit? Check the owners manual and see what all is powered by the circuit that blows. For example - the dome light and cigarette lighter could be powered by the same fuse. A dirty element on the lighter could cause cause shorting that would blow the fuse and put the dome light out. The symptom that you notice might not be the cause. You could also have a wire that has damaged insulation that is shorting to ground and blowing fuses. Faulty or worn parts could cause blown fuses.

Just recently my 98 Toyota Corrolla has started blowing a fuse.


I would remove the dome light, and disconnect the wiring connector, and then put in another fuse. If it does not blow, I would think that the dome light switch is shorted to ground.
