Hi, sounds like your shift lock actuator has shorted out. Go to the following post about half way down the thread there is a procedure for replacing the solenoid:

You might want to test the solenoid to make sure it's bad. The problem could also be the wire from the brake pedal switch shorting out along the path up the steering column.

1996 chevy 4 door blazer, i have tail lights, headlights,reverse lights and blinkers but i dont have hazards or brake lights and tried a new fuse and keeps blowing it as soon as u step on the brake


you may have to trace the wiring from the fuse all the way to the brake light globe to see if the wire has a short circuit to the body of the car.

Stuck in park,power windows don't work,reverse lights don't work dash doesn't work. keeps blowing 10 amp fuse for reverse lights.changed brake pedal switch didn't help


of course changing a brake pedal switch will not help in a reversing light problem
they are two totally different circuits
check for a damaged wire at the reverse light switch or bulb holder for the reversing bulbs for a dead short
as for the rest check the IGN fuse under the bonnet

98 ford taurus keeps blowing brake light fuses


check at the rear of the car in many cases trailer hitches are added and removed but the extra external wire harness stays and tends to get damaged causing shorts etc.in any case that is the problem with blowing the fuse check wiring at the rear and near the lights .disconnect both rear lights install a new fuse to see if it still pops if not problem is isolated to one of the lights if still popping then its the harness from the pedal brake switch to the rear of the car..good luck and please vote

My shifter locks when i've just turned the car on and try to shift from park to drive. It moves to the right a little bit, but will not move down into reverse. Ideas?


There may be a malfunction in the shift interlock sys.
This sys. keeps the shift from being moved from park
unless the brake peddle is depressed. There are 5 fuse's, directly or indirectly related to the interlock system. Fuse #6 15amp in the fuse box under the hood on the left side. The next 4 are in the fuse box
behind the left side of the dash. Fuse #3 15amp/fuse
#18 15amp/fuse #16 20amp and fuse #4 15amp.
Check these first, before you move on to the brake
light switch, under the dash at the brake peddle.
And the shift lock solenoid, under the console left of
the shift lever. Hope this helps.

My daughters 1998 honda accord ex keeps blowing fuses she is having to replace the brake light fuse after we replaced the brake light switch when she changed the fuse last the horn blew and she was shocked...


The horn and rear brake lights are on the same fuse. Eventually the horns rust out like on my 1998 CRV. Once I replaced the horns, I could put in a new fuse without it blowing every time I sounded the horn. Problems still remain, namely: the cruise control does not engage and the remote start only starts the engine that runs for two seconds then dies. Still looking for an answer. It's a "Code Alarm" with Codestart dated 11/24/99.

2004 chevy impala....my brake light fuse keeps blowing...fine when you replace the fuse but then when you step on the brake it blows (the fuse that say BRK SW}


you have a short somewhere. if it is the brake switch fuse it is probably the brake switch which should somwhere on the pedal arm or actuated by the pedal arm. also check your bulbs if you haven't already. hope this helps.

Continuous blowing of brake light fuse, hence, no brake lights...lol


there is a micro switch behind your brake pedal that activates the lights when you push the pedal. it will create a short if it's faulty
