My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Why does my Atv Polaris sportsman 90 keep blowing headlights???


Lousy bulbs or poor voltage regulation (too high voltage will burn out incandescent lamps especially when you factor in all the bumps and vibrations ). Maybe you can special bulbs designed to withstand the conditions presented by your ATV.

Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

Headlight keeps blowing


Check the amps that are being drawn by the headlights. Compare that with what the bulb should be drawing using:
amps= watts / volts
I am going to guess its higher but not to the point of blowing the fuse for your lights. I would then start checking grounds.
Or, you used halogen bulbs and you touched the glass. I doubt they would both fail at the same time from that.

Wr450 headlight keeps blowing


Hi, Nathan if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
9. Weak charging alternator/generator.
10. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

My wifes 92 883 keeps blowing headlights. First the low beam then the hi-beam. Is it the headlight relay shooting too many amps to the light?


Check the headlight lens for moisture in them, that blows bulbs. Do you touch the bulbs with your fingers when installing them? Don't do that, that blows bulbs. And no to many amps is not possible, but to many volts,is poss, have the charging system tested by a local Autozone or O'reilly auto parts, its is free, it could be to much voltage due to a alternator issue or wiring problems. Please rate my help for fixya..

Anyone know about 1996 polaris sportsman 400 - none of the lights are working - headlights, tail lights, not even the neutral light or reverse lights work - have looked for for broken wires and can not...


I also have a 96 Sportsman 400...local dealer told me if these bikes are operated with a low\bad battery the electrical system is designed such that the light bulbs will blow. I and a bad battery and non of my lights worked when I got the bike started. So, I replaced the battery and headlight bulbs and they now work. I would recommend replacing your battery if it's questionable and then your bulbs...worked for me!
