The most common source of a short in this truck is the turn signal switch or shorted trailer connectors if u have them.

When I connect the battery the blinkers come on constantly glowing, nothing else works, check the fuses, the alternator fuse is blown, replace that, connect the battery fuse blows again. 2007 solara.


Bad alternator or short in alternator wiring. You much need a wiring diagram. Is that the car? Was in an accident? You may have pinched wiring or a wire shorted to ground. Try new fuse with alternator disconnected, then with key on, connect alternator-watch for sparks, or clicks, -you might want to have the alternator tested, just to be sure. You have to start somewhere...
Maybe a wiring short in the blinker system? Or is the fuse blowing an alternator fuse?

Hello, Im a US Marine and dont know alot about automotive but Im not completly numb... My father in-laws 2003 4x4 dodge pick has been blowing fuse #18 which when blown or removed the dash lights go out......


That fuse also supplies illumination to the radio, hvac controller, cup holder and cigarette tray. I think the best thing to do is start unplugging each one of these until the fuse stops blowing. Then plug the last think in that you unplugged to make sure that makes the fuse blow. If you suspect the instrument cluster start with that first.

Fuse for brake lights blows


There is a short in the brake light wiring, that I guess you know, these types of problems have no common fix, each is different, did you add any wiring like for a trailer?

EEC fuse: 1992 ford explorer


sounds like you have a bad relay that is shorted out or you might have a bad fuel injector shorting out fossible fuel pump wireing short do some probing aroun with the multi meter try to find direct short , use the process of elimination .
now let me see does your truck start up and run then fuse blows? is the fuse the correct amperage check your owners manual to see how long does it run before blowing fuse ? when its running is it running smooth while is running?
