Sounds like somthing is grounded, along the way.. The easy to find it is using an inductive amp meter, and a 30 or 35 amp, self resetting, circuit breaker for diagnistics.

replace the fuse with the circuit breaker, and get it to start tripping, like pressing the brake pedal. Once it strarts cycling, follow along the wiring with the amp meter.... It will bounce wildly along the good portions of the wiring, and then give no indication AFTER or downstream of the grounded area....

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

Rear park lights keep blowing fuse


first mistake you make is to increase the fuse capacity to above that required. You have a short in the circuit and by putting such a large fuse in you run the very real risk of burning the wiring loom. Check the bulb sockets and check that the right bulbs are in the sockets. bulbs come in two styles. one has 2 contact points and is either for 2 filaments (stop and tail) or a earth wire (Plastic light units) and the other is a single contact that earths out through the metal base . If you have the wrong bulb in place the current will short directly across the contacts and the light will not come on and the fuse will blow. Fuses for tail lights will be 5 amp maximun

2001 mustang v6 automatic convertible keeps blowing fuse #10 (park, tail lamps)


The fuse doesn't blow till you turn on the light switch? If it blows before turning on light switch, look for a short to ground between fuse box and light switch.
If it blows after turning on light switch, I believe they make a short finder tool.

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.

96 dodge ram 2500 tail lights and instrument panel lights quit working at the same time all other lights work help please!!!


Check your tail light fuse, on the dodge ram the dash lights and tail lights use the same fuse so if the tail light fuse blows your dash lights will go out to alert you of no tail lights.
