Short??? I replaced the fuse that was blown and as soon as I turn ignition on it blows again.Does this mean I have a short somewhere?If so it would be in the headlight wiring harness right?Could that also keep tail light from working?

Not only headlight is energised when the key is turned on,so it could be anything on the switch,dont just replace it over and over,your wire harness will continue to acrue damage. Check for fuse purpose, then look at that circuit for damage
Tail light may be blown or be grounding out.(may be the problem)

Fuse blows as soon as you incert it into yhe ignition circuit on my C300H countax


You have a short somewhere and you need to trace the wiring. For your diagnosis, use "circuit breaker" fuse which will auto-trip/reset if there is a short or high amp draw. I even replaced some of my fuse with circuit breaker.

97mits mirage 1.5 blows 30amp fuse as soon as ignition key hits turnover position? Suspect bad ground


Try disconnecting the wires from the starter and try it again. If it blows the fuse again, then your ignition switch it'self is probably shorted. If it doesn't blow the fuse, your starter is grounded on the inside and needs to be replaced.

Suddenly blows fuse as soon as plugged in why?


Usually a fuse blowing immediately means there is a short in the amp somewhere.

Can a bad voltage regulator cause the main 30 amp fuse to blow?


Usually a bad regulator will only cause problems with charging...
Sounds like you've got a short somewhere in the wiring...I'd start by checking the ignition switch wiring and the connections going into the fuse box.

1985 Celica GT dashboard and running lights out


Hello, the 15A tail fuse is the only fuse in this circuit, yes there is a short to ground, remove all the bulbs in the rear and check to see if the fuse still blows, if not the problem is at the rear lights, possibly a wrong bulb in one of the sockets or s short between the green wires(power) and ground(white/black) wires. If this doesn't stop the short then the problem is up front, possibly a parking or side marker light, do the same, remove the bulbs, if the fuse stays in replace the bulbs one by one until it blows again to isolate which light is causing the problem.
