Reverse fuse blows when reverse button is pressed.

Is there a common cause for this?

    Sorry, I didn't make it clear. It's not the reverse light that is shorting, its the fuse for the backup (reverse) button. I figure its a short, but don't know where to look.

Hello

I answered in your other post as well. I am assuming that this is an ELECTRICAL issue for the above problem so I will answer electrically as it wasn't 100% clear.

Its because somwhere down the line you SHORT-CIRCUITED the 2 wires going to the reverse light of your motor bike. If it is just ONE wire going from the reverse fuse to the reverse light then the main problem must be that the wire's insulation somewhere is going to earth (metal chassis of your bike) before it actually reaches the bulb hence it blows your fuse. First try by removing the bulb and see if it still blows without the bulb in place. Then this means that you will just have to check from the bulb holder to the fuse for any cuts in the wire etc. Your problem is a short-circuit.

Hope that this helps :) I love bikes :)

Best Regards

Car blows engine fuse when put in reverse


It would seem there is a fault on the reverse light circuit causing the fuse to blow, though I am surprised it is blowing the engine fuse, perhaps it is an auto transmission with electronic management?

Manual or auto? Given the fault it is probably auto so I expect the reverse light is unaffected and so too the gear selector inhibitor switch operation? If this is so it would suggest a fault with the transmission, the electrical connections, wiring or electronics.

Sorry I can suggest no more given your rather sparse description.

Why does my 95 chevy 4x4 diesel keep blowing fuses when i put it in reverse


You can rule out internal transmission wires. The only thing I know of would be the reverse light wiring. You have one power wire to the neutral switch. So when the lights are supposed to come on the fuse blows the turn signal . You said you check the wiring, Did you check for continuity? High resistance cause a higher amperage draw. Also did you check the hot wire for short to ground? Try leaving the engine off. No lights on. Put it in reverse, see what lights come on. Have someone stand in back and watch as you put it in reverse. The lights should flash for a split second before the fuse blows. If any other lights come on, you have lost ground to the reverse lights.

Reverse light fuse is continually blowing 1999 mitsubishi galant


The speed sensor is probably the root of your problems. Likely the reverse switch wiring is routed through the harness for the sensor. That could also be the reason it goes into limp mode. Change the sensor and see if all problems are resolved. Good luck.

Reverse light fuse blows when put into reverse


Unfortunately, many possibilities. If you have time, start by removing both reverse lamp sockets from light assembly(and keep from touching any metal), remove bulbs from sockets, CAREFULLY INSPECT sockets and wires. New fuse of correct rating. Turn key on and try again in reverse.
Fuse still blows: Next place to look is transmission reverse electrical switch and wiring as far as you can trace looking for burned/stripped wires near transmission and wires by sockets
Fuse doesn't blow: Turn key off and install one lamp in socket at a time. DO NOT install sockets into fixture at this time. Test. Remove first lamp to check second. If still O.K., each socket back into fixture(one at a time same as before)and test. Most common problems: Sockets contaminated, wires shorting at sockets, bulbs installed incorrectly shorting to ground.

Reverse lights fuse blew


hi
check the wire because if the fuse keep blowing there's a wire somewhere on the car that has contact with the frame so everytime you put your car on reverse the 12V wire shortcut on the frame so the fuse blow check all your positive wire and your bulb as well
Good luck

Reverse causes fuse for instrumental cluster to blow


Yes there is a reverse light back up switch located on the side of the transmission it will be the only 2 wires going to the tranny. There might be a short in the switch itself or the power wire to switch might have a bare spot where it might be grounding out on the vehicle somewhere.

Reverse light short


if im not mistaken, under the car on the tranny you should find the switch, youll have to consult a manual for the exact location. it should be on the drivers side, look for a bump with wires coming out of it. i was haveing the same problem with my 1985 trooper. i found that the switch was partially unplugged and causing a short, thus blowing the fuse. follow the wires until you find a connection. see if it is unplugged. if not, then check the cotinuity of the switch with a multitester. it may be a bad switch

Fues blown in xpower inverter 1750 plus


These fuse are often intend to protect voltage inversion. (reverse voltage)
So, if the eight fuse are blown, then maybe the voltage red and black wire were not connected to the correct polarity.

then again, even if these fuse are intend to be use as reverse protection, it may occure that transformer short out, transistor short out and many other short circuit inside the inverter as occure.

So replacing all eight fuse might not restore the unit function, they may even blow again.
Also, reversing polarity that cause the fuse to blow might have damage the transistor stage.

I am still, investigating few other problem with those unit.
I don't have all answer yet.

regards,

Hitheck
