Since the fuse blew for a reason, I would consider taking the first fuse back out, and then disconnect the batter for a few minutes, to reset everything. But if you have the a radio with theft protection, make sure you have the code to re-enter. If that helps, then put an ammeter across the fuse connector to see if it is drawing to many amps.
Should be less they two thirds what the fuse is rated for.
If you don't have an ammeter, then just try putting the fuse back in when the engine is off. If it does it again, then you need to look for a short in that wiring. Probably where the wires cross over sharp edges or where it could get pinched, like near a dent.

Why would only one out of 4 marker lights work?


you are right all marker lights come off of one fuse, inside instrument panel, number 29, a 10 amp fuse my manual does not give a lamp number, it has a chart, head lamps (high) lamp 9005 60 w type a, headlamp (low) 9006 51 w type b, front marker lamps 5w type d, for the rear it says to use a lamp 7443 21.5 w type d, I do not use these, I have special lights on mine, hope that it helps

I have all back lights except the running lights on my 1995 chevy silverado. What fuse is blown?


Hi J, The hazard warning is for the indictors when they all flash at the same time. The park or marker lights are what you should look for. I would suggest that you check all the fuses one at a time and replace any which are blown. That way you are more likely to learn what fuse is for what circuit and cover all details. Regards John

Hi i have an 1986 toyota 4runner the dash lights and running lights stopped working... fuse is blown and checked wires in the tail lights, marker lights and behind the dash with no luck... is there a...


The tail and marker lights and Instrument lights are on the same circuit so both will go out if the fuse for this circuit blows. If fuse continues to fail, check the tail light or marker globes, including the globes for the number plate, for a globe that may have an internal short causing the fault and replace as necessary. As you have already checked the wiring near the light fittings for any chafed wires that could be shorting to the body causing the fault, then a closer inspection of the wires inside all the light assemblies for any shorts may be needed.

It could also be that the instrument dimmer control has failed and is causing the fault. The electronic bits inside the dimmer control for these lights sometimes go faulty. Try disconnecting the connecting plug on the rear of the dimmer control and checking if fuse still blows. If fuse continues to fail, then the fault in the tail and marker lights circuit.

Remove all the tail, number plate and running light globes from the light assemblies and leave the instrument dimmer control disconnected and check if fuse still blows.

Disconnect the plug near each of the light assemblies to see if any of the individual assemblies is causing the fault. With all light assemblies disconnected and fuse continues to fail, then the fault must be in the main wiring loom some where.

If you have a Multimeter, it could be used to determine which light assembly has a fault between the lamp supply and earth connection.

Marker lights do not work. 1994 nissan pickup SE


I would start by checking all the fuses, then check the headlight switch,test it for power as you did the tail light, then check the wiring coming out of the cab down the frame to the rear of bed check for a short but if all fuses are good then will not be a short, may be a bad switch and the most important is the bulbs, make sure they are good.

1985 Celica GT dashboard and running lights out


Hello, the 15A tail fuse is the only fuse in this circuit, yes there is a short to ground, remove all the bulbs in the rear and check to see if the fuse still blows, if not the problem is at the rear lights, possibly a wrong bulb in one of the sockets or s short between the green wires(power) and ground(white/black) wires. If this doesn't stop the short then the problem is up front, possibly a parking or side marker light, do the same, remove the bulbs, if the fuse stays in replace the bulbs one by one until it blows again to isolate which light is causing the problem.

2005 Chevy Tahoe Trailer Running Lights Out


Depending on what type of trailer you have, a blown lightbulb on one marker could kill them all (like the old Christmas light strings). Look at those, and make sure your ground is good.
