A short is a possibility but...

but check the fuses again. I had a car come in last week that had the same problem, and the guy swore up and down that all the fuse were good. I spent more than an hour tearing into the dash and after that drenched with sweat I scratched my head, and then checked the fuses again, taking each one out, and looking close.

Guess what....

he had a bad fuse.

But a short is possible, you will have to trace a lot of wires to isolate it, and once you find it an an easy fix. But like i said recheck the fuses first.

What would cause the doom light fuse on my 2006 Kia Rio to keep blowing?


It is because there is a hard short to ground. It is either the wires have a short leading to the dome light, the dome light itself has a short, or the switch that turns the domelight on has a short. I would suspect either a bad switch or bad domelight if you have not messed with any wiring.

check the fuses again, sometimes they blow right after you install them.

No power on dome light and stereo


Sounds like you may have a short in the ignition switch. I advise replacing this. If the problem is still there, it may be that the stereo was wired wrong, or there is a short or broken wire further down.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Dome lights stopped working... then found a blown fuse... went to replace fuse and the new fuse blew as soon as I installed it... but the door was open, could have been the reason???


Not likely. Usually the dome light fuse is also the same one for the cigarette lighter. Most common problem is that there is soemthing inthe cigarette lighter that is causing a short. If there is nothing in there, then you will need to check the wire for the dome light to be sure that it is not shorted.

My back window will not let down and the power lock doesnt work on it. My cigarette lighter wont work. My dome light went out. HOW DO I REPAIR/ REPLACE THESE THINGS


Check your fuses. Look at your lighter element. A dirty or damaged element could cause shorting that blows the fuse. A new element can be purchased for less than $5. Check your owners manual and see if these items are all powered by the same fuse.

I keep blowing fuses on my 1989 acura ledgend


What circuit? Check the owners manual and see what all is powered by the circuit that blows. For example - the dome light and cigarette lighter could be powered by the same fuse. A dirty element on the lighter could cause cause shorting that would blow the fuse and put the dome light out. The symptom that you notice might not be the cause. You could also have a wire that has damaged insulation that is shorting to ground and blowing fuses. Faulty or worn parts could cause blown fuses.

I have a 1991 Mazda Navajo. Dome Lights and Stereo wont work.


You have to be very careful working with cigarette lighter assemblies. The inner parts of the assembly can rotate without you realizing it, and this can bring the positive and negative portions of the assembly together. This can create a short circuit. Normally, the fuse will blow.

I would take the assembly back out and make certain that there is separation between the positive and negative sections of the assembly.
