Once replaced, how long does the fuse last? Is there a particular thing used or turned on which blows the fuse immediate?

The fuse blows instantly when the headlight switch is turned on, the headlights still work. It seems as though there is a short in the brown wire coming out of the headlight switch, position R.

If you remove the brown wire from the headlamp switch and replace the fuse, does the fuse fail anymore with the headlights turned on?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
