There is a short somewhere-try disconnecting all components on that circuit,put new fuse and try using one,if the fuse still blows,problem is in wiring or switch unit,if not,plug one component in and a time until the fuse blow,replace component
accordingly.make sure there is no slightly shaved wire touching the chassis,this will show when all if d/c'ed and fuse still blows,good luck

1997blazer break lights, hazard lights and turn signal light dot work ,but third break light works


You MAY have a couple of problems here and I've experienced them all on my 2000, but first things first. Check your brake switch wiring harness next to the fender under the dash (where the wire is too short and may shortout). Make sure it's not burnt, or you'll be chasing this forever like I did. If it is, replace the pigtail up there. If that is ok, jiggle your hazzard light switch and see if they start working again. If they start working, replace your hazzard light switch. If it's not that, it's your multifunction switch. Your lower brake lights run through the multifunction switch.

This same problem has affected many people, you're not alone.

1994 dodge dakota brake light ground location


The ground wiring on newer vehicles is a little complicated. Older cars, the ground would have been to the body around the tail-lights, but these have a ground wire in the harness and is connected to the turn-signal switch, and other sources. I don't think you have a ground problem. Does the fuse blow as soon as you press it into the fuse-block, or when you step on the brake? I believe you have a dead short somewhere, possibly a pinched turn-signal wire close to the tail-light assembly. Brake lights work through the turn-signal wires from the turn-signal switch on the steering column. That's how you can have one side blinking for turn while the other side stays on for brake. I'm kind of shooting in the dark here because I don't know what all you've done. If you replaced the turn-signal switch in the steering column, you may have pinched a wire or something there. Another thing, if the fuse doesn't blow as soon as you press it in, will both turn-signals work as long as you don't press on the brake? If you can provide a little more information, I might be able to help you more. One last thing....Have you replaced tail-light/turn-signal bulbs? If so, be sure you used the right bulb. You should only have two bulbs, one for back-up lights and one 1157-type combination for tail-lights and turn-signals. I have seen people use a single contact (1056) bulb in place of a 1157, which creates a short from brake/turn-signal back into the tail-light circuit. I do have a 1994 Dodge Dakota.

Brake lights turn signal and hazzards


Turn signals are on fuse number one and brake lights are on fuse number 9. Both are in the fuse box under the dash or on the side of the dash. Both are 15amp.

Where is the brake relay on a 2000 tahoe


No relay in the wiring diagram. There is a 20amp hazard fuse and a 10amp vehicle stop fuse in the engine compartment fuse box.
If those fuses are good, and the brake light switch checks out ok, I would look at the turn signal switch next.

1995 GMC Jimmy brake lights not working


Brake lights run through the hazzard switch. There are known problems with this, and the multifunction switch. You may need to buy a new hazzard switch and OR the multifunction switch. Before you do that, check the pigtail that goes into the brake switch up by the fender, make sure it's not shorting out up there. Happened to me!

Blowing brake light fuses everytime you hit brakes.


Sounds like a short in the steering colume, maybe the turn signal switch, or a wire that the insulation got wore thru in the colume. Unhook break light switch and try the turn signals and hazards again and see what happens, maybe you can isolate it that way. Also if you havent done it already chk.the sockets in tailight housing for corrosion and bear wires, or anything, even ground wires.
