Remove the headlight from the nachele or the housing. Inspect the headlight "pig tail' . I've seen the plug get hot and melt on the backside of the light.

1999 isuzu rodeo short from ignition fuse 20 amp how to fix


wire up headlight globe into the fuse position that blows, headlight globe will glow very bright when short is there, careful you dont have globe on things that can melt or burn eg. plastic or carpet etc..glass and area around it gets hot
now everything will work but the circuit that has the short to ground and you wont melt wiring or cause dammage to other components. you now need to disconnect connectors and components one at a time to work out which section of wiring or component has shorted. to work this out a wiring diagram would come in handy. when the globe goes out or is very dim as in filerment element in globe just glows red like heater element short is gone.

My 2002 Vstar 650 classic, started blowing the 15 amp headlight fuse. Any suggestions where to start and where to get a wiring schematic. Thank you.


Hi, Marcovrendon before diagnosing your blown fuse issue 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.

I have a 1992 toyota paseo have changed the fuel pump and the fuel relay and it is still blowing the 15 amp fuse for the ignigtion can figure out why. thnx for the help


You may have a blown ignition module or a short at the coil, that's where this circuit goes. What I like to do when I run into a instantly blowing fuse, is wire in a headlight bulb to where the fuse normally is. A headlight has pretty low resistance so if you wire it in place of the fuse, it will pass enough current to operate most things that the fuse is there to protect if there was no short. With the bulb in place, you can go around the car wiggling wires and unplugging devices until you see the headlight go out, that means you have removed the short circuit and likely found what is blowing the fuse.

Lost headlight,horn,both turn signals last week after a pretty hard bump in the road.Keeps blowing the top and bottom 15 amp fuses on the left bank of the fuse block


Somewhere you have a dead short, i.e. wire shorted to ground. Only solution is to trace all your wires from the fuse box to the switches, headlight, horn, and turn signals. This will be much easier if you have access to a service manual, but can be done without one if you are patient.

Blown headlight fuse on 1998 Toyota Corolla.


When a fuse blows (regardless of the car make or model) there are two reasons this may happen:
1) There is a short circuit

2) The wrong fuse was installed


On both cases, the recommendation is that you:
1) Find the fuse box (on most Toyota vehicles it is located in the kick panel to the left of the driver's side.)

2) Remove the fuse box cover and look inside. There should be a diagram telling you which fuse is which.

3) Find and remove the fuse that serves each headlight (there should be one for each. They are both 15 amps or simply have a number 15 on the fuse). If your vehicle is equiped with fog lights, you will see a total of 4 fuses in the fuse box, labled as follows:

Head RH Head LH
Head RL Head LL

4) Inspect the fuses. Make sure the number matches the number in the diagram of the box (if no diagram on the box, then look in your owner's manual, but all I've seen have the diagram)

5) Replace any of the blown fuses WITH THE SAME amp rating fuse (15 Amp). If any of the fuses is not 15 amps, then replace with a 15 Amp.

IMPORTANT: Do not replace with a higher rating!!!!

A blown fuse may be caused by a short circuit. There is a real threat of ELECTRICAL FIRE if a short circuit is not caught in time. This is precisely what the fuses are for.

5) If after replacing the fuse with the correct 15 amp fuse you still have the same problem (i.e. you see the fuse blow when you turn on the headlights) turn the headlights off and consult your repair shop.

Cheers!
