Fuse Problems

I got a 65 Chevy Impala.I keep having a problem with the fuse blowing out.Its the fuse for the Dash lights and the brake lights.The same fuse runs both.Is that right or is something wired wrong?The fuse keeps burning out everytime I have the dash lights(Headlights) on and I hit the brakes it will burn it out.Any ideas what is causing this?Any help is appreciated.Thanks,

Eazy

I agree, I would pull all the bulbs associated with this circuit and re-install them one at a time to insure that none of them is the culprit. If that doesn't fix the problem look for some hatchet job on the wiring at the rear of the truck. Bad trailer wiring is usually responsible for this.

EasyDuzsIt102,

I had this problem on a chevy of mine way back when. It turned out to be a bare wire in the trunk from carring heavy items in there and one of them pinched the wire causing the intermitant short of the lighting circuit.

Good Luck

Had a similar issue in my 78 Malibu. Turned out to be the wire powering the internal lights was grounding out, on a connector that runs to the engine bay.

So check the ENTIRE Power wire.
