Sounds like a short either in the brake switch or wiring .The switch is located near the upper part of the brake peddle.

Amp fuse 30a keep blowing


You have possibly melted a couple of wires together along the radio circuit. Also the radio unit itself has 1 or more protection fuses actually inside the unit that have blown, usually at back of unit in little bay near the wire clusters.
Check your relays too, a blow out through jump starting can do all sorts of little burn-outs.

Blowing brake light fuse


you might want in this case try a higher rating fuse, example is if the fuse is 15 amp rase it to a 25 amp fuse,try not to go over 40 amp if possible,if that still blows it is more than likley a shorted switch or a bad relay causing the overload or short. after the fuse change an still a problem chech the relay for the break lights next,these are located in the engine compartment and on some models in the trunk,good luck,Gary

Brake light fuse keeps blowing


If the fuse KEEPS blowing it is because someone keeps replacing the fuse without diagnosing and repairing the reason the fuse is blowing.

Please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

Anyway, you have a dead short to ground in your brake lamp circuit that needs to be fixed before your wiring harnesses light up and smoke your entire vehicle.

2002 Isuzu axiom cluster lights and tail lights out


Don't try a higher fuse , it just makes things worse by adding extra burn to the problem.. First make a test lamp with a 21w bulb ( indicator size) .You now have a bulb with two wires attached , insert the "test bulb" across where the fuse should be.
When you switch on the circuit concerned it will glow BRIGHT as it is getting a POS (+) and a NEG (-) ie blowing the fuse (short circuit) in the fuse box and therefore a BRIGHT bulb.
As you disconnect and eliminate or disturb the problem the bulb will immediately glow DULL ( in series contact now) and no longer a short circuit . As you check the circuits the illumination will change and, your on the money ! Let's know how you get on , Good luck

Break lights keep blowing fuses in my van, they are the right ones.


are the lights blowing out? if just the fuses are you putting in the right amp fuse? Is moisture getting in to the light socket? Try the next higher amp fuse.

Fuel pump fuse keeps blowing on 99 dodge neon. Changed relay, but didn't help. Fuel pump or something else? It mainly does it when you hit the brakes.


Usually if a fuse blows when applying something else( brakes) indicates they are on the same circuit. Verify the brake lights don't work when the fuse is out or blown. If lights still are working then it's probably not related. If on same circuit then the extra load of the brakes is enough to blow the fuse. Insure you are putting in the correct fuse. Also, this indicates you fuel pump is in a strain either due to restricted fuel filter or worn pump. Replaceing the fuel filter now will only buy you a little time before the pump goes on out. It's blowing fuses because it's drawing more amps in order to run, but always replace filter when replacing pump.

I have a 1998 chevy blazer (s-10) 4.3L 4x4 it keeps blowing the #15 (10amp) 4wd fuse, if you put a 10 amp fuse in it will blow the minute you turn it on ,then we put a 15 amp in it seems to do it when you...


check transfer case electrical switch, sometime if it bad it will also blow the fuse. don't recommend you put any higher fuse than recommend, If the fuse blow there is a short some where and by putting higher amp fuse you might short or burn something else beside the fuse. if that check out than check your transfer case motor, might lock up and not allowing the motor to turn instead it short the fuse. don't drive the car, just leave it in park, put correct fuse amp back in and unplug transfer case electric switch and turn the key on (dont start the car) and see if the fuse blow; if not plug it back in and see if it blow the fuse. if that is not the case, unplug transfer case wire, and do the same and see if it blow the fuse.
