Kindly help with the fuse layout for VW Polo Classic 2007 as my headlights' bulbs keeps on blowing up and I am not sure what could be the cause. maybe its the fuse ?


cant put your fingers on the glass of the headlight bulbs when fitting
they will blow straight away


could be a faulty earth wire

for a large headlight fuse to blow will be a wire shorting to the an earth or chassis somehwere

Headlight keeps blowing


hi,

use the process of elimination, disconnect both headlights at the bulb and put another fuse in it and see if it blows. if the fuse blows without the headlights plugged in then its the wiring to the bulbs. if the fuse doesn't blow while the headlights aren't plugged in try plugging the lights in one at a time to see which headlight or socket is shorted. possibly corrosion at body to ground connections near the headlights, you may not see the corrosion, remove the ground wires and sand those ground wires down..

Headlight fuses keep blowing


You have a short circuit somewhere in the wiring. Either a cut or bare wire. If not, the headlamp is causing the short. Last resort, use a higher amp fuse (but this may compromise wiring system).

Fuse 16 keeps blowing when ignition is turned on (fuse for headlights), 1996 honda accord.


You have a short somewhere in the headlight wiring. I would start by unplugging the headlights and see if it still blows. If so then you might need to trace the wiring back (with the negative battery unplugged) and find where the wires are touching. If it doesn't blow with the headlights unplugged then you should just need to replace the headlights.

My headlight fuse keeps blowing. The headlights are good but the fuse keeps blowing. I tested them in bothsides. I tested the fuse with know lightbulb installed and it does not blow the fuse.


Have you tested the amps being drawn with all bulbs in the circuit. This can be done easily by the DIY with an amp gauge and a few feet of wire. compare the result to the fuse amperage.

Keeps blowing fuse in fuse block ,burnt block and wire also burnt headlight switch replaced headlight switch and still blowing fuses lights will not work at all now


The positive wire in the headlight circuit is shorted to ground someplace, you have to check the wire by following it from where it connects to the headlight back to the switch and then to the fuse block

2000 honda civic vp keeps blowing low beam fuses left and right.


Fuses nearly always blow because of a bad earth. The switch only needs to short for a moment and the fuse will blow.

See if you can find a replcement swtich from a local breaker's yard or ebay and go on from there.
