You have to back probe this entire circuit to find out where its is shorted. Most likely short is at the bulbs connector but this is no way conclusive. You have to do the testing. Good luck

Fuses keep burning out; rear lights don't come on when brakes are applied. Is there a connection between these two problems?


There is a problem with your question
from what you say the brake lights do not come on when the brakes are applied --that would most likely be a faulty brake light switch
The fuse blows when the hand brake is applied indicates a short after the hand brake switch before the brake indicator in the dash that lets you know the hand brake is applied
you say that the rear light come on when the light switch is turned on--does the fuse blow then , when the brakes are applied or only when the hand brake is applied
a clearer question with a lot of detail ( make , model year , engine size etc)will get a closer answer

1987 fiero #17 fuse keeps blowing...any suggestions?


fuse 17 looks like it operates the brake switch/brake lights/ and audiable alarm system. go thru the elimination process such as brake bulbs first(take out) see if fuse pops.after applying brakes the hazard-flasher is on this circuit as well so if u have a tilt steering wheel make sure wires are not frayed inside steering wheel column as well. from there it goes to the audible chime warning module..hope this helps

How do I keep fuses for hazards and brake light from blowing


They use the same bulbs in the back.
Check the light sockets and wiring for shorts to ground.

What fuse is it for taillights and dome light 2000 ford focus


Running lights (left side): Fuse #47 -- Running lights (right side): Fuse #48 -- Brake lights: Fuse #54. Fuse panel is on the lower left side (underneath) the dashboard. NOTE: If it is your brake lights that are not working and fuse # 54 looks okay, check the brake light switch, it may have gone bad. Dome light is fuse #46 or #47 depending on model.

2000 ford focus keeps blowing fuse #54 for brakes, door open light is on unless you push brakes, blower moter fan only blows on 4, when fuse blows cannot take out of park unless we use the manual release...


The blower motors problem is the resistor has gone bad. Sorry I don't know exactly where yours is, But I think it is under the hood , passenger side ,against the firewall, next to the blower. It will have three or four big wires going to it. On the brake I would replace the switch, sounds as if it shorted and check the wires , see if they have melted. The switch is on the brake pedal under the dash. Let me know

there could be a problem with the linkage itself, when it does not come out of park there is a reason, when you force it, that is when you create bad problems for yourself. it could be something as simple as the brake lamp switch located directly on the brake pedal arm.
