Thread: Blown Fuse
08-22-2008, 01:38 PM #1
My 1994 K1500 is running great. Iíve finished all of the standard maintenance like, brakes, shocks, fuel filter, spark plugs etc. The last and most annoying item on my list is the turn signal fuse keeps blowing out after only a few hours. I now have a large supply in my glove box. Has anyone encountered this problem and what fixed it??

maybe your not putting a larger enough amp fuse in??try putting a higher amp fuse in see if that works.. or maybe you got some loose wires crossing?2006 Silverado Z71 ext cab

check your connections at the bulb, they might have corroded and you might be shorting out the circuit therebd1326

I wouldn't recommend installing a higher amperage rating fuse. The circuit is rated for a certain amperage and using a higher amp fuse may cause the wiring to become the fuse and then you have a real problem on your hands.
I would isolate which side is blowing the fuse. Once you know that remove and clean the bulbs and the sockets. Sometimes a flasher can short out when it gets hot and blow fuses too.Jim

Make sure you are using the correct size fuse, it should be labeled on the fuse box cover. Assuming you are, the first thing I would check is a trailer wiring plug. They can get corroded and cause current leaks. You can actually disconnect the entire rear harness, the plug is behind the rear bumper. That will help you find out if the problem is in the front or back.When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

if you figure it out be sure to post what your resolution was on here so we can all benefit from it. never know when that might happen to someone else and you may be able to help some one else out with your experience also.
