2005 kia sorento change ext fuse and it keep blowing


I have a 2004 Sorento EX and my EXT fuse along with the stop lamp fuse kept blowing. The ext would blow as soon as I turned the vehicle on. The stop lamp would blow after a couple pushes of the brake pedal causeing me to have no rear lights at all regarding brake and the lights that you turn on at night. After much reading online in forums such as this, I was led on a chase looking for grounding wires, broken wires, dirty battery terminals, faulty altinator, and for a drl module. I could not find a drl module as I now do not believe there is one in sorentos, or at least in mine. I then came to the brake switch that is located on the arm of the brake pedal. I disconnected it, put a couple of new fuses in, started my vehicle and checked my fuses, and at last they did not blow! I reconnected the brake switch and checked the fuses and they had blown. I have a hunch that I am dealing with a faulty brake switch. Hope this helps

Brack lights wont light up on my 1988 ford ranger we keep blowing fuse and put in new brake switch


If you keep blowing the brake fuse than you have a short in the system. Unplug the brake switch. Install a new fuse. If it did not blow than the problem is after the brake switch. Next unplug the turn signal switch, then plug the stop light switch back in and press the brake pedal. Did the fuse blow. If not than the wiring is good in between the two switches. With the turn signal switch disconnected use a jumper wire in between the light green wire (power from the brake switch) and the orange with light blue wire (power to the right brake lamp). If the fuse blows than there is a short in the right side brake circuit between the plug in and the rear socket assembly. If the fuse does not blow than jump from the light green wire to the Light green with orange wire (power to the left brake lamp). If the fuse blows than the problem is in the left hand brake wiring circuit.

When i turn of headlight the parking and tail light remain on


The combination switch has a separate parking switch you can turn on and off to keep the marker and clearance lights on with the headlights off

The stop lamp that turns off when the brake pedal is pressed has been jammed into the socket backwards (it happens!) or the black ground wire is disconnected or broken

Brake lights on my 2003 Saturn L200 won't come one but the center brake light does light. Tail lights are working as well. Would this be the brake switch under the brake pedal?


I just solved a similar problem on my 2003 Saturn. The tail light assembly had gotten wet on a stormy night with the trunk open. There was no problem until the weather turned cold. After looking at the fuses, relays, brake switch etc. I got my trusty voltmeter out. Testing the voltage on the light blue wires in my tail light connector I found the required +12Volts for the brake lights when the brake pedal was pressed. Checking the lamp sockets I found the 12 volts was still present when the brake pedal was pressed.

The water that leaked into the bulb connectors (right and left) and spread the contacts when the water inside them froze! Blowing out the water and pushing the contacts back together solved my problem! Lesson...Keep the trunk closed when it's raining hard and dry out the bulb connectors if they get wet.

Brake light dont work. 2006 chevy truck, 4.8L 2wd


Some of these had two fuses for brake lights. One for the top/center stop lamp and another for the rear left and right brake lights. Usually one said "stop" and the other said "brake" and one was in the underhood panel while the other was in the dash fuse panel. It's not uncommon to blow a brake light fuse [LR and RR] if you tow a trailer but some of these had seperate fuses for the trailer lights also. If you have a test light check both sides of the two fuses for power [ignition key on] while stepping on the brakes. It should at lest narrow your search a bit.

Rear tailight , top, goes off when I press the


This sounds very much like a grounding problem on your lamp cluster, some times a cluster of lamps use a common ground ( negative wire). Also some cars use the car body as the ground connection. I think the reason the tail light works when the brake light is off is because the tail light is grounded through the brake light bulb. Check the bulb holder and the ground connection.

Rear driver's side tail light goes off when break pedal applied


I had the same problem. They were on when the headlights were on, but turned off instead of brightening when I pressed the brake. I replaced the bulb and now it gets bright when I press the brake instead of turning off (like it should).

Start by replacing your brake light bulbs. If it still blows the fuse, them your brake pedal switch. If it still happens then you have a shot circuit in your wiring between your fuse panel and your brake lights.
