This is the type of question that would leave most people confused about what you mean because to us it sounds like you have not changed anything as far as lenth or size other than a bulb. This would lead me to believe the wiring harness is somehow caught on something not allowing you to fully pull it out or its misrouted

Is there something were missing here ???

No turn signals,no flashers keep blowing fuses .are fusestoo small


Presuming that the maximum load that the indicators can draw is with the hazzards on, this would be 4 x 21w bulbs, maybe 2 x 6w repeaters. Throw in another 10w load for the relay its self and the dashboard indicator and your total load is about 110 watts.

110 watts / 12 volts says that your load is 9.2 amps tops. So a 10 amp fuse should be man enough. You might want to see what happens with a 15 amp fuse, but that's probably pretty much overkill. The lid of your fuse box SHOULD have the fuse ratings for each of the positions in the box imprinted on it.

I would suggest that the bottom line here is that if you are popping 15 amp fuses, you probably have a short somewhere.

Thoughts about how to fix this. While the usual effect of a bulb blowing is for it to fail OPEN circuit (The fillament in the bulb that lows burns out and there is nothing there), very rarely, when a bulb blows, it goes SHORT circuit (Part of the fillament will burn and cause the electrodes it hangs from to get welded together). This is a possible cause for a short.

Your first action should be to see if the fuses blow when you turn left, or right, or both. Chances are that it will only be on one side.

Now you have identified the side that the problem is on, remove the front and rear indicator bulbs (if it has repeaters in the wing and you can get this bulb out too, do so. Now engage the indicator again. Does the fuse still blow? (you will probably hear the relay clicking wildly because it has no bulbs to fire up, this is not important, the integrity of the fuse is.

If you have got this far, either start putting bulbs back, one at a time and seeing if the fuse pops. At the moment that the fuse DOES pop, you have found the faulty bulb. Or, if you got as far as the fuse surviving with the bulbs out, you may just want to replace all the bulbs on that side. Unimportant how you go about this, so long as you have a few spare fuses.

IF however removing all the bulbs on the affected side still blows fuses when you engage the signal, then you have a short somewhere in the wiring. Favorite places are in the wiring loom between the bulb holder and the point where the wires are wrapped in black tape. Cherck for chafing of a wire. If you find some and the wire core is exposed, simply tape it up with insulating tape to fix it.

Hope this helps. Please drop a note on this thread and let me know how you get on and if you need further help.

Column shifter would not shift. Brake lights aren't working due to blown fuse. When trying to replace the fuse the fuse gets real hot and melts.


you have a short circuit in the brake light circuit or the shift interlock circuit.

Look under the dash at the switch on the brake pedal arm and see if it is burned looking or the wiring is frayed and shorting out.

For emergency, there is an over ride for the shift interlock so you can get car to a shop. Look up shift interlock in index of owner manual for over ride procedure.

I think you turn key to OFF position, step on brake, and pull shifter into neutral. Start car in Neutral, put in gear, drive away.

Remember, you have no bake lights.

Also, check brake light bulbs and sockets in tail lights. A bulb or socket could be shorted.

please rate, thanks

How do you replace the shift indicator light in a 2001 highlander. It does not have a console.


I have a v6. the bezel surronding the shift selector panel will need to popped off with a trim stick (i use a flat narrow putty knife. Once the bezel is free move it to the right (keep the wires attached) out of the way. the shift indicator panel can now be removed by using the trim stick to release the four retainers (two on each side near top and bottom). Once the indicator panel is removed, you will see a very small bulb protruding through the left side . reach down with a pair of needle nose pliers or a hemostat (forceps) and rotate the plastic bulb holder/ retainer towards the front of the car(counterclockwise) the bulb and holder can now be pulled out and bulb replaced.

How to replace the console light in a 2002 Nissan Sentra GXE?


Remove cover for storage bin under stereo. One hand on each side and pull towards trunk. Remove cup holder, pull up to remove shifter cover. The light is located under the shift indicator on the left. The black component will pull up but wire for light is short so use caution and try to remove light socket with out fully removing indicator. Light bulb is a #194 or peanut bulb. Pull bulb to remove. Reverse to reinstall.

When i put my 92 honda accord into d4 it starts blinking and wwont take off. also one of my belts will make noise


This is a bit involved. When the D4 light blinks, it is indicating a problem with the input or output systems for the A/T. If you find your Service Check Connector (it should be near or at the top of the kick panel on the passenger's side; it's usually blue and has two holes in it; it is at the end of a wire so don't look for a fixed unit; it is often simply tucked in behind the top of the kick panel. You should pull the kick panel out to find it) you can insert a paper clip so that it connects the two holes. Then, if you turn your ignition to ON II (do not start the car) the D4 light will blink out a code, using both long and short blinks. The blinks have to be carefully counted. Problem codes 1 through 9 care indicated by short blinks. Problem codes 10 through 15 are indicated by a series of long and short blinks (you have to add them together to get the code).

I tell you all this to indicate that the procedure is fairly involved, and since you probably don't have a list of what the codes mean, I would have to say that it would be best to find, if you can, a Honda dealer to read the codes and check your transmission. Most of these problems are connector or sensor related and are usually indicated by the transmission not shifting from one gear to another, or by the transmission jerking hard when it shifts. The belt problem you are hearing is probably related.

I hope this is of some help.

Most of these problems are connector or sensor related and are usually indicated by the transmission not shifting from one gear to another, or by the transmission jerking hard when it shifts. If your having no problems and you are in a position to not have access to a Honda service department, you can find the backup radio fuse in your engine compartment fuse box and take it out(not with the car running) for 10 seconds or so, then put it back. It will clear the computer. If the D4 starts blinking again, it would indicate that the warning was not just a glitch.
I really hope that this is helpful; I'm sorry if it is only disheartening.

How to replace the headlight bulb on 2006 C280?


1. Figure out best way to light the tight area to see.
2.look directly behind the light headlight bulb under hood. You will see a round black plastic cover ...Pull it off. Remind yourself how it came off. It will hook into the bottom and snap back in nicely when you are finished.
3, Do NOT pull off wire connector yet. Note/feel how secure it is for when you replace new bulb.
4. On the outside perimeter of the backside of bulb housing you will see a black plastic round ring (this holds the bulb in)...(there are 2 finger tabs...one for clockwise, 1 for counter clockwise). There is hardly any play to either way...push gently Counter-Clockwise to allow bulb loose.
5. Pull Bulb with wires still attached straight out slowly and see how you will reinsert new one.
6. Have new bulb ready...don't touch bulb glass. Pull off wire connector.
7. Put new bulb on exactly same way onto wire connector
8. Gently house the bulb back the way it came in and hold flush.
9. Now push outer black plastic tab clockwise to hold in bulb...bulb should be as secure as before you took it out.
10.Test Light
11. Put on round black plastic back housing with hooks inserted into 2 two holes on the bottom and press top back its connector and you will hear a secure click.
12. You are done...have a beer...congratulate yourself. Tom.
