Hello my name is Ben. I know you checked the wires, but I'm thinking you missed something. Try unplugging one of the headlights and see if the fuse blows, if it does plug that back in and unplug the other one. This may give you a place to look for a problem in the wires.

The fuse for the left headlight keeps blowing every time i turn the headlight on .I already replaced the switch,checked for cracked wires or bare and still get the same result


Obviously there is a short to ground or a major draw.
You should be able to use a meter to check resistance in the circuit between the light and the fuse.
You said "switch" so have you checked the headlight switch and dimmer switch too ? And does the fuse blow if the headlight bulb is unplugged ?

You checked to make sure you didn't blow all the bulbs at once?
If your front park lights work, then the headlight switch is probably alright.
You may have a taillight relay in your fusebox. Check the owner's manual. It may show it.

No Dash lights, or tail lights. All fuses and bulbs are good. Headlights and turn signals fine. Very confused....please help.


Sounds as if you may have a short did you check the bulbs? I would check the bulbs and make sure they are good. when you lift the rear hatch lid search around the wires and see if you have a exposed wire or perhaps a loose wire connection. Allot of times wires in a vehicle that year start getting frayed and worn from putting different items in the rear of the vehicle.

My tailights and dashlights won't work because the fuse blows.


it sounds like a short in the park lights.you will have to start by disconnecting headlight switch then install fuse,then check all park light bulbs and there sockets, its gonna be a bad switch or socket, enless theres a wire touching ground ,but start with the switch and checking all sockets. hope this helps.

92 lexus ls 400. Tail lights will not turn on. Brake and parking lights turn on. Fuse is good, verified.


check power to your rear tailight bulbs positive to see if they even get power with the headlight switch on. if your headlights come on then it's probably not a switch issue. Just check and make sure that you have power and ground to your tailights. It sounds most likely like an electrical problem. The best way to find the problem is to get an electrical wiring diagram and go through the system. But definately first check power and ground at the tailight bulbs to start.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

you could have a shorted tail light bulb. these also controls the park lights at the fronts. so please check all four bulbs. replace what ever busted bulb you can find.

Headlights not working


It sounds to me like you might have a loose headlight connector, or something is causing the conduit inside the headlight to shatter, if you take the car to work every day do you go over a big bump at all? also what brand are you using and what does Hyundai recommend using, the wrong headlight bulb can also make this happen - just because it fits doesn't mean its right.
