You need to determine exactly what is controlled by those fuses. Disconnect all of them on each circuit. Reconnect them one at the time unitl you blow a fuse. Then you have found the culprit. You didn't mention what year model your bike was but I can scan a copy of a wiring diagram for a 1999-on Sportster and send it to you. Contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net

1998 mazda protege running lights out


One of the light fixtures has a grounded power wire. Examine all light fixtures closely for bare or grounded wires. If you find nothing, trace the wiring harness to switch paying close attention to places where the wire harness passes through holes on the body for the harness. Any contact with the steel vehicle body from a power wire has the potential to cause a short, which will blow fuses faster than you can replace them. Start with the outside tail and marker lights. Also look for broken filaments inside the bulbs, as a broken filament touching another filament or wire inside the bulb can do the same thing. Good luck.

Tail light fuse blows immediatly it used to take a few minutes to blow all blubs are good what is the problem


There is a short circuit to ground. I am constantly preaching that it does absolutely no good to replace a blown fuse until the cause of the blown fuse is found. Fuses do not blow for no reason. If you have a blown fuse it means that you have a circuit overload that could potentially burn you truck to the ground. Simply replacing the fuse will only cause another fuse to give up its life to save your truck from roasting. On pickup trucks with trailer hitches, the first place I look for a problem with tail lights is in the trailer wiring harness. They are usually not installed properly. I have seen several of the plug-in type trailer harnesses (the kind that simply plugs in at the connector between the body harness and the bed harness) short internally. You can usually fix the tail lights by simply disconnecting the trailer harness and plugging the body harness back into the bed harness.

If this does not fix the problem, the tail light circuits will have to be traced from the fuse all the way back to the lights to find out where the short is.

Tail light fuse keeps blowing


you have a rubber through wire under the chassis near the shock mount or a bad tail light socket. this is very common on these have fixed alot of them. need to chase the wire harness that runs along the chassis an inspect really good. also if you have trailer wiring give it a good look too.

let me know if you have any more question or if you need a diagram for it i can only fax them but if you have a fax i would be happy too. let me know

Difficulty wiring into GM harness


well if your trying to actively wire it up with the car battery still connected that is why you are blowing fuses. just a heads up too if you have a live connection while hooking up the cd player you could short out other electrical devices and you could be in alot more trouble thatn just blowing fuses. the black wire is what is blowing fuses its because you have it hooked up wrong to a wire that is sending voltage not recieving voltage. ground the black wire to the actual chassis instead of hooking it to the ground wire from the harness or whatever color its grounded to which shouldnt be anything but black if you have the black wire hooked up to ANYTHING that isnt black that is why you are popping fuses. so hook up the red yellow and make your own ground you shouldnt have any problems after that.

Nissan pulsar 2000 model no tail lights working fuse keeps shorting out can i get a wiring diagram off the internet


Before getting too involved, first remove all the stop and taillight bulbs, and see whether the fuse remains intact. It may be necessary to remove the front clearance bulbs as well.
If the fuse still blows, carefully inspect all the bulb sockets for signs of wires touching. Repair anything you see.
If I remember right, there is a set of connectors within the boot (trunk) of the car. If the problem persists, disconnect all of them. Try the fuse blowing bit again.
If it still blows, the problem must be between the switch and the rear.
If you have one, an ohmmeter check between the "dead" contact of the fuse holder (no fuse fitted)and chassis ground may show a dead short. Tyring each of the connectors in the boot in a similar manner may isolate one particular wire. Then you know what colour wire you are looking for.
Then it's just a matter of tracing the wiring loom back (I think it runs under the floor coverings from memory?), until you find the damage.
A wiring diagram won't really help, lights are always wired in a simple circuit. Somewhere the wire from the switch will split to go to the other light(s), and a short could be in the second or other wire.
I have seen shorts occur even IN light bulbs... so if the fuse doesn't blow after removing the bulbs, check each one before replacing!

2003 durango brake lights stopped working


Something is being missed,start with checking the fuse for the brake lights. Then check the brake light switch for power in and out(when depressed).Your ground is intact so no power. If still nothing, remove the lamp in question and test the contacts. good luck. Don't forget to depress brake pedal while probing contacts.

Fuel pump fuse


Check the wiring harness for a live>ground fault
maybe the live to the pump(s) rubbed hard against the chassis somewhere.disconnect the harness from the pumps along the chassis rail somewhere and put a fuse in again. keep following the harness back and disconnecting til the fuse sts good. U may need 3-4 fuses. at some point you sould locate the section where the live is grounding. be patient it may take a while to locate. be optimistic - it may only take a minute!
:) good luck, hope this helps
