You have a dead short either at the tail lights (bulb) or the dashboard lights. It's possible that the wiring to either of these two places is shorted. Don't resort to using a very heavy fuse and watching for smoke! That can trash other wiring running in the same wire loom or even start a fire! 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

My 1997 buick lesabre keeps blowing fuses. first it blew the turn signal fuse which is a 20 amp replaced it with a 20 and it blew when i turned on the signal. put in a 25 to see if it would work and it...


I strongly suggest your first priority will be to discover why your tail lights are seemingly consuming many times more current than they should. A 30 amp fuse has less resistance than a 10 amp though the difference is hardly measurable.

I suspect when that is sorted out the other faults could disappear without further effort.

It is time to find a circuit diagram and to trace the tail light wiring from the supply to the lamps in order to discover what went wrong.

All my interior lights work except for my dashboard lights


Bigird,

I would recommend checking the fuses for the dashboard lights. If no fuses are burned, there could be a possibility of the bulbs in the dash being burned. In any case, start by looking in the manual for fuses relating to dashboard/gauge cluster lights. Once you find out what fuse it should be go from there.

Good luck

Abslight stays on no brake lights


Fuse 12 (10 Amps) may be burned out. Its located in "Junction Block". Losing
fuse 12 would kill the ABS systems and light the ABS dashboard light.

Fuse 11 (20 Amps) may be out. Its located in "Power Distribution Center". Losing fuse 11
would kill the brake lights, and light the ABS dashboard light. If fuse 11 is blown,
check your (3) brake light sockets for shorts of any type, or fuse 11 will just blow again.

Here's your ABS Indicator Light wiring diagram:

Fuse number 9 (prkinglmps) blows. taillights, dash lights, and parking lights donty work. why? i replaced the fuse 12 times. same ****. went with 30 amp instead of 20 . blown. what the ****? why does it do...


You have a wire touching to ground (the frame or metal part of the vehicle) somewhere. Do you have a trailer light hook up? If so I'd start there, look for bare wires, or damaged wires. Do you have any broken tail lights or parking lights? Look for bare wires there too, or it could be a bad bulb. Good luck. Don't put a bigger fuse in the system, the wires will burn up. The wires will only handle so many amps if you put in a higher amp fuse the wires will get hot and start the vehicle on fire.

Blowing 20 amp fuse


Hi that fuse should be a 25 amp and it runs the blower, heater, the day time running lamps, automatic light control and the rear defogger you would have to check each unit at a time what I would do is put a hire fuse and look for smoke on the wiring as soon as iI see whats burning I take the fuse off but you have to be quick and pull out the fuse before any thing burns if not check each unit mention and look for good luck.
