Sounds like the wire for the headlights is shorted out somewhere. So the fuse is doing what is should, blowing to prevent a the wire from melting or starting a fire. Start at the headlights and look for any obvious damage to the wires. Look for pinch points or spots where it goes through a hole in the sheet metal. Any missing grommets? The wire may have rubbed a bare spot. If you can find the damage, repair it and fix whatever caused it. If you don't find it, take it to a qualified mechanic - don't bypass the fuse or put heavier fuses than the circuit is rated for in the slot. If you burn up the switch or wiring, you will have a much more expensive fix in the long run. Answer 1 is not incorrect, BUT when the headlight switch is turned on, it supplies current TO MORE THAN the headlights. It also feeds to the instrument panel lamps, front parking lamps, all side marker lamps, tail lamps, and to the license plate lamp[s]. Therefore, a SHORT in any one of the wires in ANY OF THESE circuits would cause the fuse to fail [blow out]. I don't know about the horn because I thought it was on a different fuse[circuit]. Also, as stated in answer 1, DO NOT bypass the fuse, DO NOT "OVERFUSE" the circuit, and take your vehicle to a QUALIFIED automotive mechanic, or better, an automotive electrical technician. j3h.
Short in the wiring.
Nearly every manufacturer utilizes LED technology in their headlights. This became the standard around 2009 when Audi began to replace their tail-lights with LED.
Every vehicle that I've experienced this problem in was due to the tail light fuse being burned out. This condition is because the tail lights and dash lights share a common fuse, which makes the dash lights act as an indicator as to whether or not your tail lights are working (although, this doesn't indicate whether the bulbs are good or not).
A cold breeze blew every morning?
It's a short circuit in the wiring. You'll have to get a multimeter or test light and go over the whole wire for the headlights and check for continuity . If there's a current through it all is what youre checking. Hope it helps .
Ralph blows the conch every meeting
volcanos are both destructive and constructive . how? because when a volcano erupts it blows rock then every time it blows more rock and that is how you make another volcano!
Stock lights? If not, they might be drawing too much current for the relay.
It might be because of moisture. Mine would go out every time it rained. I had my mechanic put a new silicon seal on the headlights and that solved it for me.
I have a 1995 neon dodge and my dash lights will not come on or my tail lights and every time i change the airbag fuse and turn on the car the airbag fuse blows.
Check all int fuses first since unlikely both went out at same time. Headlights should have their own (fuse)
yes the wind blows every time it just blows so slow that you can't feel it
You have a short to ground somewhere. Start at each lamp socket, then the wiring and look for problems. Possible bad headlight switch. Also in checking shorts, don't forget the license plate light in addition to all marker lights. Dash lights normally go out when the tail light fuse blows as dash lights are fused from the tail light circut.
They are in the state of Ky and I suspect they are in every state.
sounds like a short circuit in trailer plug or wires to it?
Check your charging system. Your alternator should put out less than 14.5 volts. Any more and it overcharges the batteries and burns out lights.
Wiring for power in buildings is in parallel. If it was in series every time a light or power switch was turned off, the entire building would be turned off. This can be seen with Christmas tree lights when one bulb blows every bulb goes out.
somebody put a single filiment bulb in a dual receptacle socket or visa versa chech rear bulbs first
If it blows every time you try to crank the engine over, the starter may have failed.If it blows every time you try to crank the engine over, the starter may have failed.
When you turn on the headlight switch, you are turning on 2 circuits. The headlights are on one circuit and the other circuit is the tail lights and the dash lights. The tail lights are on a separate fuse and the dash lights feed off that circuit with usually a 5 amp fuse also. Sometimes when the dash lights don't work, the dash light fuse is blown. Sometimes the tail light fuse blows and it feeds 12v to the dash fuse. Also a bad headlight switch can cause the dash (and or tail lights), not to work also. Do you see two green arrows and no dash lights?. A loose ground clip is the suspect and a real pain to fix. A hard slap with the palm of your hand on the hump forward of the steering wheel has turned the lights on every time I have tried it. You must know all of the bulbs will never burn out at the same time also the fuse controls several other things including those two green arrows.
Because then your lights don't work and every room becomes dark
They change shape every time the wind blows.
Check to make sure that the tail light bulbs are in the correct sockets. Whenever there is a different watt bulb in an incorrect socket, braking may result in headlights and dash lights to light up.
Lights are required on every trailer
According to my neighbor, a local NJ cop, any lights accept standard brake, turning signal and headlights are illegal. He said it depends on the cop who sees you. Some know the law but don't sweat it and some will...just like every other State law.
