Cheak all the junction boxes of wires around the ignition and under the fuel tank an make sure they are not corroded or shorting out, they simply need cleaning with a small pick or screwdriver and some electical cleaner

I blow the 15a fuse every time for tail, panel lights ,and dimmer,,every time I turn the headlights on


Headlamps and front parking lights/tail lights are usually fused separately on most modern vehicles.

The first position of the light switch would usually switch on the tail lights, number plate illumination, panel lights and front parking lights and the second position switches on the headlamps. From your description the fuse only blows when you select switch position 2 and the operation of switch position 1 is satisfactory.

If this is correct it would suggest a problem only with the headlamp circuits. This narrows the field somewhat which can be narrowed even further depending on whether the fuse blows only with the high beam or low beam. If it blows with both the fault must be common to both.
The use of a wiring diagram would be a tremendous help in tracing the fault but I suggest checking the bulbs first.

95 Dodge Dakota headlights, taillights dash lights suddenly went out. Have turn signals and flashers, no brake lights. Replace 15 amp fuse under dash that was blown nothing, replaced headlight switch


Did you check for voltage at the 50 amp fuse circuit. Even if the fuse is good if no voltage on the fuse circuit, the circuit is still dead. There is a light green wire that carries voltage from headlamp switch to dimmer, is that wire hot with headlamp switch on?

There are wiring diagrams for free, just about everywhere, if you don't have one. Autozone .com has free wiring diagrams on vehicle repair guides link. You have to register your vehicle, year--make--model, all that good stuff. It's free.

Have a 2009 ninja 250r with headlamp problems. For some reason the fuse keeps blowing out for no apparent reason. Both high/low beams will not work. I will reach up under cowling and wiggle low beam bulb...


Hi, Anonymous before diagnosing your blown fuse issue check the bottom of your seat if it's metal and comes in close proximity to the positive battery post you need to take the necessary steps to ensure there is no contact (electrical tape, thick rubber insulation, hammer a dent in the seat bottom etc.) also you are going to need a wiring from your service manual a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses. If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with and ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any number reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.

The park lights stays on after swtching off the bike and drains the battery, 2007 cvo ultra classic


Try pulling the lighting 15 amp fuse (not the headlamp 15 amp fuse) and see what happens. I take it the headlights are working properly. If the other lights go off when you pull the lighting fuse a short to power is indicated and your diagnosis will be narrowed but you will still have a process to go through to trace this problem down.

Fluid resevoir light in dash stays on all the time


The headlamp circuit is rather simple. From the 15 amp RH headlamp fuse, there is a red w/yellow trace that goes to the RH high beam. Out of the 15 amp LH headlamp fuse, the wire going to the LH Hi beam is solid red. Both of these wires should have power when the headlamp relay is energized. The wires from the Hi Beam bulbs going back to the switch should both be red w/black trace. The wire going from the headlamp relay to power the 2 15 amp fuses is white. The headlamp switch applies a ground to illuminate either the Lo Beams or the Hi Beams.

Subaru outback wagon tail light not working off


There are several components of your 1997 Subaru Outback that can cause your tail lights to stop functioning correctly. To help pinpoint the cause of the problem, it would be very helpful to also check your front marker lights. If the marker lights are working, then we know that the problem is not the headlamp switch or the tail and illumination relay (located in the fuse and relay box).

The components to check are:

> Fuse #23 (20 Amp) in the Main Fuse Box.
> Fuse #5 (10 Amp) in the Fuse and Relay Box
> Tail And Illumination Relay
> Headlamp Switch

2004 ford f150 no headlights


In the central fuse panel (one inside the vehicle) check fuses 23 for left headlamp and 25 for right (10 amp fuses) for power with the headlamp switch on.You should have power accross these fuses with the headlamp switch on. If u do not have power check fuse 6 (15 amp). If this fuse is good then check for power to pin 7 RD/YE wire at the multifuction switch, if this is good then check for power on pin 6 RD/BK,if u do not have power here then multifunction switch is your problem.
