Just a suggestion. Take apart your headlight switch and look for the harness and switch overheating and melting. I've seen this a few times.

My brake light works but the parking light on the back passenger side does not could it be a fuse or something else? And anyone know what fuse is for the parking lights?


Many vehicles employ bulbs with one and two filaments. Single filament bulbs are used for reverse lights, marker light, etc. Two filament bulbs have a heavier or thicker filament that produces a brighter light - typically for brakes or turn signal and a lighter or thinner filament that produces a dimmer light - ideal for "parking lights" (or other "always on" light). Chances are that the lamp that is lacking a parking light has a thin filament that has simply burned out. Any auto parts store should have a book or someone that can tell you the lamp you need based of your vehicle year, make and model.

I have a 1990 chevy cheyenne c2500. my brake lights,parking lights and blinkers arent working and when i try to replace the fuse,it blows immediatly. what could the problem be?


What is the amp rating on the fuse that keeps blowing? I looked at wiring for stop lamps, 15 amp fuse. Unplug connector for stop lamp switch, see if the fuse still blows? Also see if anything at connector looks burned or melted.

You could have problem with fuse box, itself. Look at back side of fuse box, see if anything looks burned or melted.

Tail lights dont work but the brake lights do


does your car have DRL option (canada) daylight running lights?)
my answer will be, non export jeep. USA jeep, no one ever says !!!!
the tail lamps are not brake lamps.
they are independant.
there are many parking lamps , and the tails are that.
do all parking lamps fail>? see FSM page 8w50-2
the tails run directly to the park headlight switch pin, marked park.
which gets power from fuse 34
the same switch and pin runs all other park lamps and same fuse 34.
so if the fuse is good, then all lamps are burned out , nah.
or the switch is bad, and can due to so many lights for so long.
if lamps are not dim then here is no short, so must be an open
Fuse 34 tops list , use an ohmeter to test the fuse. or replace it
as , they can get hair line cracks. inside fues
0 ohms = good, infinity = bad fuse.

2001 dodge ram van ...... my fuse for the parking lights keeps burning out....please help. Is it a recall ?


check the park lamp bulbs-pull them out of their sockets and look for corrosion-also look at the wires as you pull out the assemblies-does the fuse blow right when you turn on- this may be a shorted wire -cheers Denny

2003 impala keeps blowing rear parking lamp fuse


Same issue also when the fuse blows i looks my electric seat controls. I found the problem was underneath the hood underneath both the fuse boxes it was a power wire pinched under a plate that holds the fuse boxes on. This wire probably wore through after 140,000 miles of rubbing and being pinched. tell me if it works for you

I just rewired my 20'deckover trailer. I used good quality lcd's. I have the 7 and 4 pin plugs. everything works but the parking lights on both plugs. I have a 2006 f-150 extended cab. bought a test plug...


Did you check the fuse for the trailer tow adapter parking lamps ? This is a separate fuse from the truck's parking lamps.
Fuse #10 is the Trailer Tow parking lamps ( via the trailer tow parking lamp relay ) and this is the same fuse for the trailer tow reversing lamps ( via the trailer tow reversing lamp relay ).

If you did not get an owners manual with your truck ( purchased used ), you can download one from Ford :

Trailer connection not working need to know which fuse to change 2005 Ford F150 Lariat


Trailer Tow reversing relay ( non serviceable ) and the Trailer tow parking lamp relay are both fed from Fuse #10 ( coil on reversing relay is fed from reverse lamps & coil on parking lamp relay is fed from the parking lamps ).

Trailer Tow battery charge relay is fed from Fuse #106 ( coil is fed by fuse #13, hot in start / run position from key ).

Right Stop / Turn is fed from Fuse #36 ( powered from MFS circuit for truck stop/turn )
Left Stop / Turn is fed from Fuse #42 ( powered from MFS circuit for truck stop/turn )

1994 K1500 Chevy have short in parking lamp circuit, keeps blowing fuses


If you have a trailer harness, make sure it isn't shorted out under vehicle. Have also seen front parking lamp harnesses rubbed through on radiator core support.

Problems with brake lights on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee


YES -- process of elimination. Obviously there's a short circuit in the Brake/Headlight circuits - right? Blown fuse(s) is/are evident of this -- would you agree? Which fuse(s) is/are blowing? An analysis tells you that the only time a fuse blows is when the headlamps are turned on -- correct? Otherwise, brake lights work normally -- right? OK. Head lamps have relays which turn them on. Here's a wiring diagram of the 2000 Hyundai Sonata (NOT the Jeep Grand Cherokee)
7a9e354.jpg a663f53.gif It would appear the problem is with one or more bulbs or sockets or both. As you many notice, there are no connections between the headlamps and brake lamps except the parking lamps (which share the bulbs/sockets)
c7068ec.gif When the headlamps are turned on, so does the tail lamp relay. As you can see, these bulbs/sockets are 'DUAL' filament to ground (series-parallel circuit). Just a guess here - the short is in one of the lower rear brake/parking lamp bulbs/sockets.... just a guess.
