If all the rest of the lights are working, I'd look for a bad ground. I'm not sure but the running light may be controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. I have a diagram of an earlier unit and wiring but it's from a model that did not have running lights.

The light has two functions, as a running light and a turn signal light if we're talkin about the same light unit. It must be switched for a continous 12 volt supply for the running light to a pulsed 12 volt supply to operate as a turn signal. This switching is controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. You'll need the pin-out and trouble shooting information for the newer unit.

Good Luck
steve

Why do Rascal Scooters have a common problem with killing batteries? I have a 625 that has killed 3 sets of batteries. I have read it is common. Help, you guys/girls are the best,


You must have some kind of circuit that stays on to drain the batteries. You need to find out what is still turned on with
the key off.
As a suggestion, lift one of the battery leads (these should be connected in series for 24volt operation). With one of
the battery leads to the other battery, or lead to the controller disconnected, temporarily connect the automotive 1156) signal light bulb in series between the battery post and the original battery lead.

If the light bulb glows red or brighter, you have something draining the batteries with the KEY OFF, and you may need to unplug disconnect the controller, or controller relay to see if the light bulb stops glowing, which may help to locate the area of what is causing the short.
Good luck finding wiring diagrams. it seems that the scooter
industry wants to protect it's dealers, and only they seem to
have wiring diagrams.

In place of a fuse connect a bulb... bulb should burn. trace wire with a compass or a magnetic field app on smart phone till you found the problem, way easier than a new wiring harness as well as cheaper... :-)

Toyota solara 2001, tail light nor working. Fuse pups every time. every one said i have a short some where. Toyota has a light failure sensor. I am unable ($300) small box at the rear of the car. help


There is indeed a short in the circuit however what you need to do is hook a meter set up to read amps across the terminals to determine how much current the circuit is trying to pull. Massive means either the light socket has a short, or your sensor has gone bad. Your local library should have a book on the cars wiring harness to help out.

When I turn on the lights I blow the fuse for the tail lights , dash lights, side lights and horn. I've changed bulbs , disconnected tail lights , traced wire looking for ground,disconnected lighter and it...


You might have a short in the headlight switch itself. I would check the positive side of the taillights to see if they are shorted to ground. Not sure on a manual, besides All-Data.com. You can also purchase it thru Auto Zone.com.

best bet is get a WIRING DIAGRAM. you should have current (12 volts) on both sides of the fuse that works the tailights.if not there is probably a broken wire or a shorted wire leading up to the fuse. you kinda need the wiring diagram so u can see in which order the current "flows" which will help point u in the right direction.

01 chrysler sebring was running good but now keeps blowing 20 amp fuse to starter and fuel system


something in the ignition circuit is drawing too much current.the starter draws 10 times that much current.check for shorted wires or a bad coil pack,or even the module,or a short in the distributor.get the wiring diagram.put a 25 watt bulb in the fuse instead,it will light and limit the current to 2 amps.disconnect items until the light goes out,and then check things on that power rail.

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!
