That is the main fuese for the brake light circuit.
Does the fuse blow right when you plug the new one in?
Will the fuse blow if the switch is operated with no bulbs/sockets installed?
Was there anything that triggered this to happen?
You mentioned something about "different" brake light bulbs. What made them different?
Has the car been in an accident?
Why was the convertible top switch replaced?
Sorry about the wait, I had to step out for a minute.
There is a short in the system. Do you have a volt/ohm meter and the ability to do some electrical diagnosis?
No particular brand is nessecary, just one that can measure voltage and resistance.
How did this issue present itself? Did the lights just stop working one day?
I didn't realize I had an issue with the brakes until a friend following me told me. I don't feel safe driving at this time and would not want to be the cause of an accident. I have another vehicle but would like to fix all of the related issues with the Z.
I will get a volt meter today before work and try to contact you.I work on Sunday and Monday but can test related items on Tuesday. It would be great if you could give me a little advice before Tuesday. Thank you very much!
I can give you advise on whatever you need. Let me know what you need advise on.
We can do it when you get time, I'll be here.
