Keep blowing tail light fuse 45 on my 2002 Pontiac Grand Am?


There is an issue, you have a dead short in the circuit, no quick fix for this. You must first get a wiring diagram of the entire circuit and then follow it until you locate the shorted wire or component.

What is behind the fuse box


You really need a good wiring diagram. Those cars are basically a toyota corolla on the inside with a good amount of mods to the electrical system. Grab a manual from an auto parts store or go to a local tech school that has an auto repair program and make copies. This will save you loads of time troubleshooting the problem. 25322389-21syibu3fgwpdxocjnkpw0ib-3-0.jpg

I just bought a 1983nissan 280zx 2+2 non turbo.drivers side rear running light ot wing But drivers side turn signal is checked bulb fuses ect. also oil gage volt and clock work sometimes and sometimes


You said same socket, so it couldn't be a bad ground or then neither light would work. And you also said there is no power on the tail light wire at the socket? There should be voltage on the wire with park lights on. Find the rear tail harness. Somewhere there at the rear of the car the park light wire (the tail lights, running lights, all the same) will splice off to both sides of the car. You have passenger side lights, so you know the signal is good that far. Somewhere between the splice and the driver's side, the power is lost, maybe right at the splice. So find the harness, it will be either under the car along the frame, or inside the trunk. That's an old effin car, Howard. Are you sure you want to nurse it back to life? lol. Buy a Haynes manual for it - it will save you money in repairs. Good wiring diagrams, too.
Are those gauges in the instrument panel, and not aftermarket? If they are in the dash, I may know what it might be. I have an '87 Sentra. Fuel gauge, temperature gauge, and warning lights, and turn signals would only work intermittently. Car would start and run, but those things- sometimes not, or they would come on way after down the road. I traced it down to a faulty ignition relay in a relay block above the instrument fuse panel. The run wire out of the ignition switch trips this relay on, and it sends power to a portion of the fuse panel that has the fuses for the gauges and turn signal lights. Replacing the relay was the answer-they always work now. Your gauges may be similar, but almost as likely a loose connection somewhere.

What is the cable connected to the ignition that controls the dash board's gadgets


You mean by gadgets, warning lights and gauges? That would be from the ignition switch's run wire, the wire from the on position. This wire sends voltage to the ignition system, and to the dash for the warning lights and gauges-but not directly to the dash-the signal would reach the dash after being routed through the fuse panel to a fuse for the dash gauges and warning lamps. You need to check if that fuse is good.
Recall seeing any wiring diagram? The fuses are labeled either "hot at all times" or "hot in run or start". The fuses labeled hot in run or start are only sent power when the key is on, so power for those fuses are routed through, or turned on by the key being on. Depending on the car and its wiring set up, many will have relays that are turned on by the run wire, and power is then sent from the relay to that circuit's fuse in the fuse panel. This relay may be called the ignition relay. Or your car may have a different relay to send power from the run wire to the fuse panel.
The only way to figure yours out is to see a wiring diagram for it. Then you will see how power is sent from the ignition switch to the dash.
Wiring diagrams are almost always found in repair manuals. Check if your library has a manual for your car. Most libraries have quite a few repair manuals. Or parts stores sell repair manuals too, for about $25. Try to find a Haynes repair manual for your car. The other popular repair manual is from Chilton. My preference is Haynes, just my preference. I been burned by Chilton manuals sooo many times-incomplete wiring diagrams, incorrect information, incomplete information. Haynes are not perfect by any means, you want perfection-spend big bucks for a factory service manual ! In general, Haynes is more complete than Chilton.
OK, enough venting. If you have a test light, check for power at the fuse for the dash (may be labeled "gauges" or "instr pnl", something like that) with the key on. If it has power with key on, wire from the fuse goes to the dash. If that fuse has no power to it with key on, power has been lost between the ignition switch and that fuse-now you definitely need a wiring diagram to find the problem.

2001 3500 chevy duramax all running lights,tail and dash lights not coming on..


The wiring diagrams on 2000 and newer models are not easy to read sometimes, but it shows a 30amp park lamp fuse and a park lamp relay. The relay is controlled by the PCM. There is also a 10amp Int - Park fuse. I think the small fuse is inside the passenger compartment and the large fuse is in the engine compartment box.
You may have to get a shop manual to get the diagrams to be able to check each circuit.

I need diagrams for the fuse boxes in the dash and engine compartment so I can find the fuse/relay I need to replace. My dash lights, tail lights and windsheild wipers are out.


Hi
There are a couple of wiring diagram and manual available on the net. The relay you are talking about is the park lamp relay which supplies power to the tail lamps, license plate lights and both front and rear park lamps. If the park and plate lights are working the light switch, relay and supply power are good. You need to verify for a broken brown wire to the tail lamps (assuming the sockets, lamps and grounds on both tail lights are good) .If none of the lamps are working then the 15A fuse number 3, the light switch or the park lamp relay could be bad (note different contact in the main light switch work the other lights)

You can find a wiring diagram and component location at
www.autozone.com and http://www.pdfgeni.com/book/1998-ford-ranger-wiring-diagram-pdf.html


Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.

No tail rnning lights-brake and backup works-wire


It may not be a fuse at all it sounds from the description (14a) it is a 14 gauge fusible link which is a wire that will burn out like a fuse, check for 12 volts with a multimeter or test light from the fuse box and then continue down the circuit until you cannot find power. Just before this point you should be able to see a part of the wire that looks different and that should be the fusible link.

Click on the link.
Did you check fuse circuit for voltage? Use a test light with headlamp switch on to check for voltage. See the park lamp relay, I'm not saying the relay is faulty, but, you might be able to use jumper wire on load side of relay, if lamps work, the problem is on control side of relay, for some reason.
The load side of relay is that line with arrowhead. There could be other issues.
