2004 Ford Ranger 10 amp fuse keeps blowing no brake lights,abs, turn signals?


Fuses blow because there is an overload on the system. If the fuse blows when you step on the brakes then there may be a short in the wiring from the brake light switch to the lights, abs module or turn signal switch. If the fuse blows when you turn the key on then there is likely a short in the wiring to the brake light switch. Basically you will need a wiring schematic to check the wires at the switch and at each of the loads. Also verify that the fuse is supposed to be a 10 amp fuse. Hope this helps

I've a 2004 malibu front headlight signals blow out driver side blows most ? Tried replacing bulb, replaced entire headlight assembly still continues to blow out? Help


Replace the turn signal switch. That is what is shorted out. All the exterior lights run threw it except the high mount brake light.

Why does my turn signal/ hazard light fuse keep blowing out


you have a short in one of the light sockets or a worn wire from the wiring harness. could be the flasher assembly. are the turn signals different bulbs from the brake lights? Does using the brakes blow the fuse? (Rear lights or brake light switch on brake pedal). left or right turn signal blowing the fuse will tell which side has the short. 4 ways only, replace the relay.

Fuse keeps blowing


Hi Anonymous, you got to many things going on to give an educated guess with out being in front of the bike. Before you take it to your local dealer or reputable shop check to make sure battery connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends and your charging system. Voltage at battery should be 14.3-14.7 volts at 3600 RPM. Good luck

2005 kia sorento change ext fuse and it keep blowing


I have a 2004 Sorento EX and my EXT fuse along with the stop lamp fuse kept blowing. The ext would blow as soon as I turned the vehicle on. The stop lamp would blow after a couple pushes of the brake pedal causeing me to have no rear lights at all regarding brake and the lights that you turn on at night. After much reading online in forums such as this, I was led on a chase looking for grounding wires, broken wires, dirty battery terminals, faulty altinator, and for a drl module. I could not find a drl module as I now do not believe there is one in sorentos, or at least in mine. I then came to the brake switch that is located on the arm of the brake pedal. I disconnected it, put a couple of new fuses in, started my vehicle and checked my fuses, and at last they did not blow! I reconnected the brake switch and checked the fuses and they had blown. I have a hunch that I am dealing with a faulty brake switch. Hope this helps

Brack lights wont light up on my 1988 ford ranger we keep blowing fuse and put in new brake switch


If you keep blowing the brake fuse than you have a short in the system. Unplug the brake switch. Install a new fuse. If it did not blow than the problem is after the brake switch. Next unplug the turn signal switch, then plug the stop light switch back in and press the brake pedal. Did the fuse blow. If not than the wiring is good in between the two switches. With the turn signal switch disconnected use a jumper wire in between the light green wire (power from the brake switch) and the orange with light blue wire (power to the right brake lamp). If the fuse blows than there is a short in the right side brake circuit between the plug in and the rear socket assembly. If the fuse does not blow than jump from the light green wire to the Light green with orange wire (power to the left brake lamp). If the fuse blows than the problem is in the left hand brake wiring circuit.

My 2005 buick rendezvous keeps blowing the fuse for the turn signals and brake lights. Fuse #42 in the inside fuse panel. this just started happening two days ago. Nothing is different with the car.


most likely caused by a short, could be any were. start with the light assembleys remove it and clean any rusty or coroded spotspull all bulbs clean and or replace .auto parts stores sell an electrical parts wash about 9 to 14 $ . spray as needed let dry and put back together.if it still blows fuses its some ware in the wire s , could also be at the turn signal switch or the brake switch . you would have to get it to blow to figure out witch one it is and witch one it is not example put in new fuse then keep putting on the brakes if not blown then keep doin the turn signal then check to see if blown

FZR 400R Deltabox Exup. wont idle properly Howzit everyone. I have a "small" issue with my FZR 400R Deltabox Exup. So it doesn't want to idle properly(the moment I reduce the idle speed to any point below 3000rpm it continues to drop and dies) and also revving the bike it bogs around 6000rpm doesn't go any higher. When restricting the airflow through the airbox it revs better(all the way to 14k rpm) but still doesn't want to idle as the revs then hang on it's way down. I suspected this was all caused by an air leak somewhere, sprayed some quick start on the boots between the carbs and the intake as well as between the airbox and the carbs with no jump in the revs. Nevertheless I sealed the boots just to make sure they aren't the problem. I then stripped the carb and cleaned it properly, put everything back together, sorted out their syncing and reset the mixture screws to 3.5 turns out(which sounds a bit far out, but thats what the manual said-since then I've tried everything from 0.5 to 4 turns out with no significant effect). Then the cylinder started acting up(not firings- a different cylinder about every third time the bike was started) I then replaced the spark plugs with new ones(NGK cr9ek as per the manual) after that cylinder 1,2 and 3 was firing, but 4 was still dead. I Replaced the coil, leads and caps, still not firing. I checked the compression, which was fine, I checked the valve clearance (cylinder 4 the one intake valve was way out of spec, so i replaced the shim), still not firing. I've got no idea what else could be the problem or what to check next. PS. When i pulled the spark plugs(both new and old) they where burnt black so I'm not sure if my jetting could be out of spec perhaps?
