Not sure if this will help but I ran into a similar problem. If you use your ash tray for spare change and the lighter is in the same location check to see if there is a coin stuck in the lighter.

You are going to need to determine the cause and place of the short. The three main problem areas I come across are (1) trailer wiring (2) corrosion in the rear tail lamp housing (3) light switch shorted internally. You may also try and see if the horn works after replacing the fuse, if it blows the fuse you will know there is a short in the wiring going to the light switch and not in your lights. good luck

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

2002 tracker,keeps blowing 15 amp fuse that runs heatr fan and lets car shift out of park


I looked at the wiring diagrams and those two circuits should be on two different fuses.
The shift lock solenoid is powered by the 10amp turn signal fuse and the 15amp stop light fuse. If the fuse blows when you put it in park, I would say the shift lock solenoid is the problem and the stop light fuse is the one that is blowing.
The heater fan and relay are powered by a 60amp fuse and a 15amp fuse but not the stop light fuse.
Its possible there is a short some where that has connected these two circuits.
You could disconnect the shift lock solenoid to see if the fuse still blows.

Fuse #47 blowes on my 2000 focus all bulbs are good


it only means that your elecrical system on your running light was grounded thats why everytime you switch on the running light the fuse blown. The only solution to that is to find out where the line was shorted or grounded. you must start tracing it from your switch going down the elecrical line going to the fuse, relay and lights.
That's it, good luck then.!!!

Turning my headlights on blows the fuses to running lights and dashlights


headlight switch is bad, change the headlight switch itsellf will short out, therefore blowing your fuse. turn signals and break lights are on a different relay, therefore they will still work

My tail lights are not working, it keeps blowing my fuse.


1.Unplug your taillights at the sockets and the front running lights from sockets.
2. put in new fuse after unplugging taillights.
3 turn on taillights if fuse blows then the wiring is grounding out somewhere between the switch, fuse panel, and rear and or front parking lights.
4.If fuse does not blow then plug in one socket at a time keep rechecking fuse. when the fuse blows after plugging in a certain socket suspect that one to be bad and replace.

I have a 2004 Chevy Malibu. and recently, the interrior lights and Instrument/tail lights fuses keep blowing out. I replace them, and the next day or sometimes within hours they fuses will be blown again....


You are correct,now to find out what circuit is blowing the fuse.If the car was in a accident check that area first.Chances are its interrior or running lights.lets start with interrior lights,install new fuse turn on interrior lights on for 1/2 hour.if fuse blows remove interrior lamp lenses and look for one of the hot wires to be shorted out on the body.To check the tail lights turn off the interrior lights and turn on the running lights.If fuse blows start with any damaged areas,check the trunk area for damage to the wire harness,if you have a trailer hitch chcek the trailer harness for damage.theres no easy fix here,hope I have been some help.Thanks for using FixYa......Ray

It's blowing fuses and lights are dimming while idling


Need more information than what you have given me Bud will help with what info i have got.
For the fuses keep blowing and the lights going dim when going it sounds like..
Turn on Parking lights ,if still blows fuses then parking or tail lights shorting out,(remove all light plugs and re fit 1 at a time till the falt comes back that is the problem one),,if ok turn on dip beam and do the same as before,,then of ok do the same ot main beam,, but the part is when the fuse blowes and it goes dim,, that could be the dead short to earth and so it could also be Alternator problem which should be charging at 13.5 max volts when running,so get it checked out....

1986 RV blows instrument panel fuse when switch pulled


The headlight switch has a rheostat built into it to dim your dash lights, it may have shorted out. As soon as you turn on the switch this rheostat comes into play and is probably whats blowing the fuse. I think if you replace the headlight switch, it will solve your problems.

Blows fuses when parking lights are turned on. Headlights work fine even running lights.


If it only happens when you turn the switchto the parking lights then it is most likely the swich that is the problem. Light swich failure appears to be a common fault with fords

Fuse blows when I turn on the tail lights.


May be a tough one to isolate, hopefully not a bare wire to lights but very well could be. Personally, I'd try removing all the running light bulbs, then turn them on and start replacing one at a time, to see which one causes fuse to blow. have a real good look for a bared wire at or near connection , or one full off water/moisture.If you have one that looks like water or moisture in it, that's where I'd start.
