I have a 1992 Dodge w150. My question is this, as long as I have it in park the fuse for the taillights is good,but when put it in drive and go about a block the fuse blows. Can someone help me

This sounds as if you have a wire rubbing somewhere. This can be very difficult to trace without some electrical experience. You will need to isolate the lights from one another to determine where the actual short to ground is. I would locate the parking light wire in the middle of the vehicle that shows power when the parking light switch is turned on, using a digital multimeter. Try not to move the wire look too much as not to disrupt your ability to find the short. Cut the wire isolating the front from the rear. Re-insert the fuse and if it still blows you know it is forward from where you created the isolation. If it ceases to blow then it is aft where you cut the wire. One you determine if the short is forward or aft then isolate the left parking lights from the right. If you have isolated the lights from one another and the fuse still blows then may be in the instrument cluster, parking light switch, etc.

Hope this helps get you going.

Hooked up my new battery backwards, blew the main fuse. It has been replaced and now the meter fuse in the inside fuse box blows within seconds and gage cluster and alternator not working

Could have damaged regulator. When the car is running have you checked the voltage at battery terminals. If battery is charging it should be around 14 volts. If around 12 your charging system is fubar.

Meanwhile if you have to charge the car every day then something in the car is draining the battery, Using an ammeter you need to track it down, Hook it up to battery and pull fuse out one at a time till the drain goes down. That isolates the circuit with the problem.

Wiper fuse blowing while car is turned off

It's the wiring ,there is a dead short to ground ! Looking at a electrical distribution chart that shows if that is the only system powered by the fuse , then isolating the circuit . It's not the motor or the pump , wouldn't blow the fuse unless it was on . Looking at a wiring diagram I see that fuse feeds power to the wiper switch through the accessory relay located in the under hood relay center . The relay could be shorted inside .

Short need help 96 toyota camry

Test the relais condenser and replace , and test again if the fuse is blown.
Otherwise you must go to the repair shop.
The short is the most difficult are to isolate.
You will need a VOM.

Hey i have a 94 camry, Im having an issue with high beam.. Low beam,parker & all other lights work fine. If i hold high beam on manually they work. when flicked on they go off but the H/Beam dash...

It sounds like the dimmer switch is bad or out of adjustment. More than likely it will be bad. It should be located on the steering column right under the dash. For most dimmer switches, you have to drop a panel down, to see up on the steering column to locate the switch, and if you work the switch while looking, it usually has about a quarter inch steel rod running into it to work the switch and the switch is fastened to the column with two small screws and is adjustable up and down. Yours may be different.

No lights on dash board,no parking lights.

if you have no parkers and no dash lights then check fuses first as these circuits are connected and share a common fuse and switch. Test the fuses electrically, looking at them is not enough as a blown or faulty fuse may look sound but will let you down when under load. replace any fuses found to be blown and check the lights again. If the fuse blows again, seek a professional to diagnose the issue. NEVER use a fuse of a higher rating in the hope that it will not blow, this leads to fires and possible injury. You may also have a relay in the circuit which you will hear clicking when turning the switch on and off. Follow the clicking to find the relay and then check it electrically with a 12volt test probe ( a multimeter does not have the current to test this properly) make sure it has its supply and switched output..

1996 ford explorer windows, locks and seat fuse keeps blowing

Disconnect as many of the door switch wiring plugs, and wiring plugs for the seats that you can. Then, drop in a fuse. If it blows, you probably have a wiring issue, not a switch issue. If it doesn't blow immediately, reconnect the doors, and seats one at a time till the fuse does blow. Once it does, you've isolated your problem to a smaller area, and can replace / rewire that component.

If you've disconnected everything, and the fuse still blows, you probably have a wiring issue that will need to be traced. You will need a multimeter that can read ohms. You'll need to isolate different parts of the circuit (probably by unplugging and or cutting a wire in that circuit unfortunately) then use the multimeter to test the ohms from that part of the circuit to NON voltage side of the fuse holder. (If you try to test ohms on a hot circuit you will likely fry your multimeter!). If the meter reads low ohms, there is your short. High ohms (infinity) means there is no circuit, and there is no short. When you hit on something of low ohms, you've isolated the problem to a smaller area, and can keep tracing that wiring back to the fuse box to find your short.

Good Luck.
