Hi Anonymous, obviously you have a dead short, hook one lead of an ohm meter up to the out bound clip of the blown fuse. Clip the other lead to a sharp pointed scribe and start stabbing the wire from the fuse it keeps blowing untill the ohm meter quits reading zero and reads infinity and there or very close by is your short. For a wiring diagram go to: http://www.stcharlesharleydavidson.com/OEMpartfinder.htm#
enter your year and model then scroll to the " W " for wiring diagram. Good luck

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: I keep blowing the accessory fuse on my electra glide

I'd say that you have an intermittant short somewhere. These are very difficult to find. I'd start at the tail light assembly as most of the time, I've found the shorts in that area, from the seat back to the tail light assembly.

Good Luck

In this case, you're going to need a wiring schematic to trouble shoot the problem. You'll have to disconnect the power lead to each device that the fuse provides power to. Then, replace the fuse and start reconnecting the devices one at the time. When you connect a device and the fuse blows, you have found the problem. I do not have schematics for bikes newer than 1999, I'm sorry.

Good Luck
Steve

Fuse blow for brake lights as soon as i put it in i have no brake lights


check the wiring after the fuse to see it there is any where it is touching earth. The brake light switch under the dash at the top of the brake pedal would be a good place to start as the live wire may be off and touching the metal.

Brack lights wont light up on my 1988 ford ranger we keep blowing fuse and put in new brake switch


If you keep blowing the brake fuse than you have a short in the system. Unplug the brake switch. Install a new fuse. If it did not blow than the problem is after the brake switch. Next unplug the turn signal switch, then plug the stop light switch back in and press the brake pedal. Did the fuse blow. If not than the wiring is good in between the two switches. With the turn signal switch disconnected use a jumper wire in between the light green wire (power from the brake switch) and the orange with light blue wire (power to the right brake lamp). If the fuse blows than there is a short in the right side brake circuit between the plug in and the rear socket assembly. If the fuse does not blow than jump from the light green wire to the Light green with orange wire (power to the left brake lamp). If the fuse blows than the problem is in the left hand brake wiring circuit.

NO BRAKE LIGHTS - FUSE BLOWS


Really need more info but if it blows fuses you have a hot wire touching metal somewhere......
or something plugged in where it shouldnt be.....Or wrong size fuse..You have a brake light switch attached to the brake pedal which is common to fail.....also brake light bulbs and fuse ...check where bulbs are installed at recepticles....check for naked wires touching metal.....also use a good rated fuse...
should be a 15 some are 10 some 20...i would try a 15 if you dont know..................Sometimes your foot can accidently kick wires loose under dash at brake light switch........some cars also have
a cruise control switch above brake light switch.....DONT confuse one with other....NEED MORE INFO ABOUT VEHICLE TYPE TO GIVE CORRECT ANSWER................METALPOET

My car keeps blowing brake light fuses and i've put a new brake light switch into it and the problem is still there


Check the wiring in the trunk area. It could be that the wiring to the lights themselves got damaged and is shorting out. Look for bared, cut, crushed wires in the harnesses...especially the brake warning light that is in the rear window.

Brake lights blows fuses


Please check the brake light wiring there must be somewhere where the live wire is touching the body (earth -) and thus the blowing of the fuses.
Since the plug in had melted so must have the wires insulation top melted somewhere and its now shorting.
Hope this helps.
