Customer: replied 4 months ago.
this is one issue! all the lights and turn signal are connected to the 10 amp fuse, question I have is how to fix the fuse problem!
ie some sort of relay? or an idea where to look for a short(i doubt it is a short), i am thinking something simple but am not sure what direction to go
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
oh yah the fuse blows when i hit the turn signal
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.


There are 7 10 amp uses used by the lighting system. Which fuse number is *****?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
that i will have to see in the daylight, will contact you in am. i do know it says hazard light on the fuse box lid but not sure of the number
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.


Customer: replied 4 months ago.
looks like it is number 15 10 amp hazerd light
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.

Fuse 15 under the hood is used for the right headlight. There is not a fuse 15 used for the turn hazards as far as I can tell.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
All i know is it is a 10 amp fuse that blows when i hit my turn signal, It has a connection to dash lights , battery, AT tmp, and break. Because when the fuse blows these lights come on, so to ask the question one more time , why does this fuse keep blowing, ie, the cause?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 4 months ago.

I can not answer " why is this fuse blowing" when I do not know which fuse is failing. Can you not look at the fuse diagram on the cover and tell me the number for the fuse slot where you keep replacing fuses?

  • What would you like to do regarding your question now.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I may never know it.)

Thanks Chris
