May be a relay has gone bad, but with those issues it could be the wiring harness has a short in it. GM make some bravada and trailblazer vehicles with defective harnesses

Hi,

Other than the dome light, all of the other electrical you posted operate using the ACC terminal of the IGN switch. The most likely then would be a loose connector either of the wiring harness, relay base or fuse holder fed by the ACC B+. Determining which is a matter of tracing the wiring from the ACC terminal to the fuse box/feeder (in some instances, there would be a relays likewise). From the fuse box/feeder it would go to the different fuses for the radio, defogger, auto door lock. The fuse(s) may be OK but their connectors might be loose and/or the main connector that feeds the fuse box/feeder being the common denominator.

The dome light should work even with no key in IGN swtich turned to ACC. But then again, it is fed from the fuse box/block straight from the battery's + terminal. Which leads back to the connector to the fuse box/block. Your best bet would be to remove/reconnect the different connectors going to and from the said fuse box/block.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I would look at the swithch dor it. Its built into the dimmer switch with the headlights. Sounds like it may b on....Also could be a door pin switch no grounding like it dosnt see the door closed. If you still want to pull the fuse it shoud be the one that says inst/curt thats instrument and courtesy. Just know that you will loose your instrament panel as well as a few other iems that are powered from that fuse.

SOURCE: tail light fuse keeps blowing

it sounds like it may be an electrical problem, you ae going to need to follow the wiring harnesses from the tail lites back to the fuse pannel as well as the dash lites if you don't find where it is shorting out. how ever the first place I would look is to see if you have a plug in for towing a trailer and if so I would start there. I would also check the pigtails where the lites plug in to see if they are all rite.

I'm not sure where the fuse is, but I'm pretty certain your door sensor is the source of the problem. In between the hinges on all your doors is a button that gets pressed and depressed when the doors open and close, this controls your courtesy lights, make sure none of them are broken, seized up etc.

Let me guess? You cut the wires. You are supposed to disconnect all of them in the old door and pull them through. Then you remove door. Remove wires from donor door. Install donor door and pull the original UN-CUT wires through and re-connect.

2003 Pontiac Vibe no tail lights, brake lights and turn signals work just fine. The dimmer switch does not dim the dash lights but does work the dome just fineand the lights for the Heat/AC are off.


The tail lights work off the headlight switch, and there is a fuse for the tail lights. Make sure the fuse is good, first, a 15 amp (blue) fuse in the instrument panel fuse block. Then, you might have a bad headlight switch.
So you DO have dash lights, they just don't dim from the dimmer switch? In the wiring diagram, there is a green wire from a "tail light relay" (in the "Junction Block-Right Instrument Panel") that carries power to all the exterior lamps, as well as having a splice to the Instrument Panel Cluster (illum. bulbs), and to the lamp dimmer, and to the radio bulb.
To do any further testing, you would need a voltmeter or a test light, so you could chase down this power loss. Good luck.
