SOURCE: Fuses keep blowing

Ignition and the Horn/Brake fuses. If all 3 fuses are good then the ignition fuse will blow. I can either have the Horn/brake and the ignition fuse in or the light and the ignition fuse in but if all 3 are in the ignition will blow. Basically I'm riding either with out headlights or no brake lights/horn. Has anyone experienced this before?Sounds like a short in the wiring somewhere.  I bet that somewhere along the wires the vibrations have caused one of the wires to wear through and its touching metal or another wire somewhere. ,,,

SOURCE: kawasai z750, keeps blowing main fuse

Hi,

To my knowledge, there are no onboard electrical/electronic components capable of shorting and blowing the fuse with out blowing any of the secondary fuse. The main fuse could possibly blow due to a short in the wiring or an exposed/frayed wire touching the body. The three most likely areas would be:

  • wire harness leading to the regulator;
  • wire harness leading to the fusebox; and/or
  • wire harness leading to the ignition switch.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: accessory fuse keeps blowing, headlight not working

I know this sounds aomewhat general, however please give the following some thought:
Check your relays, if you have an aftermarket horn you may have a different relay. To troubleshoot unplug your headlight, unplug your horn, etc.. Turn your ignition switch to accessory only. See if the fuse pops. If it does unplug whatever added accessories you may have still have plugged in. Once you can get the fuse to stop popping, turn the ignition switch to on. Then one at a time plug you accessory, headlight, etc. back in. When you find what pops the fuse, unplug that item, start plugging in the other items, if the fuse has not popped you have potentially isolated the circuit causing the issue. Now check the wiring for loose connections, bad ground, and CHECK the relay if that item has one. Hope this helps,

JP

SOURCE: right turn signal blows fuse. replaced

I don't have a wiring diagram for your '05 FLHRS but since the early '90's, Harley has used a turn signal cancelling unit to control the turn signals. Once you press a turn signal button, the turn signal controller activates the signal for specific lenght of time then it cancells the signal. There is a wire that comes out of the plug on this cancelling unit that goes to front turn signal and rear turn signal on each side of the bike. If you are blowing a fuse when the right turn signal is activated, I would suspect a short somewhere along the wire that comes from the turn signal cancelling unit going to either the front or rear signal light. The cancelling unit is a "black box" that is about 1 1/2 inch wide, about 3 inches long, and about a 3/4 inch thick. It may be located between the tanks on a split tank model or under the seat on other models.

Have a 05 dodge 1500 the 4x4 switch an overhead console leds quit working an keeps blowing the fuse as soon as i put it in


Odd that your vehicle runs both systems on the same circuit and with only a 10 amp fuse. I'd try a 20 amp fuse to see if that works. Worth a shot, it shouldn't harm anything.

What would make the fuse under the seat keep blowing


There has to be a short in the line somewhere in order for the fuse to constantly blow. A wire has rubbed against some steel and is causing the fuse to blow. trace the fuse to the link....such as the lights or rear light and check the socket or wiring for a short.

Need wireing diagram for 05 travel light trailer by r-vision


Disconnect converter. If that stops fuse from blowing replace the converter, it is shorted internally.

Below is the link to the company to get the wiring diagram from.

I have replaced....several times.... the 15amp fuse for my turn signal and overhead console read out and they continue to blow. All other lights continue to work, even the flashers, head lamps, and break...


When a fuse blows you have 2 choices

Replace it once or just go to the wiring
diagrams & start diagnosing & testing,
until you find the cause of the electrical
system problem causing the high current

You need to know what is on that fused circuit

Unplug the overhead console. If the problem
goes away, you know the console needs to
be checked out. Or you work on the signal

You wouldn't go on a road trip without
a map,if you never been there before !!

My tail lights are not working, it keeps blowing my fuse.


1.Unplug your taillights at the sockets and the front running lights from sockets.
2. put in new fuse after unplugging taillights.
3 turn on taillights if fuse blows then the wiring is grounding out somewhere between the switch, fuse panel, and rear and or front parking lights.
4.If fuse does not blow then plug in one socket at a time keep rechecking fuse. when the fuse blows after plugging in a certain socket suspect that one to be bad and replace.

I have a 98 jeep grand cherokee 5.2l v-8 4x4, keeps blowing the #6 fuse for the overhead panel it also kills my turn signals and vic. I have checked all bulbs and wires I could see it happens when i turn...


Check for any loose or frayed wires either near the fuse box or further down the line. If this does not apply then I would put a fuse that takes a little more amps to blow.
