I would check the wires coming out of that button. There's a short here somewhere. If you cannot find a bare wire, the motor itself has shorted out.

Why would the fuse blow every time the windshield wipers are turned on in a 2002 Sable wagon?

\n Answer \n. \n . in my experience i have found that the wiper motor cover is the problem, you may check your local mercury dealer there was a recall for this. you may also check the wiring I have seen wiring that has been eaten through by mice or other varments.\n . \n . I took it to the Ford dealer for a dionostic test...$75!!! Turns out the windshield wiper motor had a short in it...Cost me $55 to replace it myself. But,on another note, we did find mice in the engine compartment earlier in the spring! So maybe they caused it!

What would cause a fuse to blow when turning the light switch off if you have 3 switches hooked up in your bathroom and the power blows every time you turn the switch off but not while it is on?

Answer . \nIs it just one switch that causes it or do they all cause it? Sometimes a switch will cause a surge when turned off because electricity will arc inside the switch trying to continue powering the device. This can be seen if you unplug an appliance while its still on: you'll see an arc at the outlet. Loose wiring at the switch or anywhere on the circuit will cause this as well.

Why would the CD player blow a fuse in a 94 Chevy Lumina every time the drivers side door is opened?

Answer . I'm assuming that the CD player fuse and the interior lights are on the same fuse. I'm also assuming it only happens on the drivers door. Opening the door activates the interior lights via the little plunger thing. So there must be something shorting out in that plunger thing. \nRemove the plunger thing and inspect the wire. If it looks fine, note the color of the wire. Then get up under the dash on the driver's side and look for that wire. Inspect it for a short. Maybe a remote starter or security system was added and now there's a short under there.

Why would the fuses for your marker lamps and gage light keep blowing every time you turn on your headlights in your 1998 Chevy sillverado?

your head lamp wire has a short in it get some extra fuses and unhook each side then plug them back in that will tell which side it is. if it does it without them being hooked up check for a bare wire before they split off too each side . you can also ask your local gm dealer if that is a common problem or a good local shop \n. \n Answer \n. \nyou may be putting the wrong size fuse in it or there may be wires bad wires

What causes the horn and flasher fuse to blow out every time you try to replace it on a 1984 Toyota 4WD pickup?

Answer . \nThe reason they are blowing, as soon as you install them, is because there is a short somewhere, in the flasher/horn wiring. Have you or anyone else, done anything electrical, to the truck lately, added something or tapped into the flasher/horn circuit for any reason. There is usually a common denominator, when a circuit all of a sudden, starts blowing fuses. \n. \nI suggest you buy a circuit breaker, with the correct amperage rating and start there. Put it in the horn/flasher slot in the fuse box. You will hear the device "pop" when it blows, but unlike a fuse, it will reset in a few seconds, then it will again "pop" breaking the circuit, and reset itself again. This gives you a way to check the circuit, without using up every fuse you own. Get yourself a copy of the wiring diagram, and start at the end of the circuit, working towards the fuse box. On a 23 year old truck, good chance it's a worn wire. Eyeball the wiring in the bad circuit. The under side of the wire, the part you can't see, is where most shorts occur, as over time the insulation will wear away, allowing the wire to touch metal, and "Poof" there goes your fuse. \n. \nTake your time, and don't rush it, finding a shor,t can be a real test of your patience. If you have to stop the work for any reason, no big deal, just leave it as is, drive it if you have to, and when you get time to continue again, pick up where you left off.

Why would a 15 amp fuse blow when you try to start a 1994 Geo Tracker?

15 Amp blows on start. HI, As I read the schematic, I see a couple of options. One Could be the Ignition Coil, another is you could have a bad main relay, another option is the Igniter. Any of those could be a culprit. I have left out the Ignition Switch itself. Any of those could be bad, I'd probably start with the main relay first as it's the easiest place to start. See nif you have an auto recycling center (junkyard ) near you and find a used part first and work from there. Steve H. I just had this issue with my 1993 Tracker and it was intermittent and it ended up being a short. It was the ground wire that was attached to the thermostat housing right up front. That ground wire was shorting to the plug that is right near it. Good Luck Bob Y.

What would case a 1995 buick park avenue to blow a fuse when adjusting the power seats only when trying to recline back?

Answer . Regardless of the make and model of your vehicle, AND AS A MATTER OF FACT, ANY TIME a fuse "blows," it does so because the circuit in which it is located, and which it is intended to PROTECT, has experienced either a SHORT CIRCUIT, or some kind of overload event which has cause more electric current to flow through the circuit than the wire(s) is capable of carrying.. Since you say that the fuse failure occures when trying to recline the back "only," that indicates that it is that portion of the several circuits [one for each function [up-down, forward-back, etc.] of the seat control.. Find the solenoid/motor which controls the seatback position, then carefully trace the wires from that device, particularly the HOT wire which carries battery current to that motor.. Look for wire on which the insulation has been partially cut through, or pinched against or by a sharp grounded metal edge of the seat frame or the vehicle's body sheet metal. Once the short has been removed, and the insulation repaired or replaced, the fuse should not fail with use of the seat recliner.. On the other hand, IF there are no shorts in the wiring or switches, it is possible that the problem is in the recliner motor, or the solenoid controlling it. Good luck.j3h.. I had a similar problem with my driver's seat recliner. The reclining adjuster motor just didn't run anymore. The cause was found to be lack of lubrication of the drive cables that come out of the small motor located under the seat right in the center of the seat. I sprayed WD-40 on the drive shaft of both sides of the small motor and then on the input shafts of the gear boxes on both left and right hinges of the seat back. It solved the problem. While down there I also lubricated the other two motors and their respective gear boxes. Now the seat operates as new in all directions.

What would cause a gear shifter of my Toyota 4Runner to be stuck in park the car will start but it blows the 'tail fuse' every time?

Need Year and Model of vehicle? what type engine? 6cyl 4 cyl. it's a 1994 Check auto transmission fluid level. Does fuse blow right as you replace it or when you try to shift it? both! took it off-roading this wknd and every time it was put in PARK it got stuck! changed the fuse & it blew as soon as i hit the brake pedal. took a look at the ground to the stereo etc, and everything looks great.

What would cause the fuse for the brake lights to blow every time you hit the brakes?

Fuses That "Blow" Repeatedly .

What would cause my 336 35 Rem to let an extra round to try exit the tube while chambering thereby causing the gun to jam as you can't close the lever until you push the extra back in the tube?

This is a VERY common problem in the Marlin 336 lever action rifles and almost always easily fixed by replacing the Carrier Rocker Spring, part number 406300B available from Numrich arms. You can also contact Marlin directly, but they have been sold and who knows what the future holds for them in New Haven. I would call as soon as possible. PHONE: (one eight zero zero-five four four-eight eight nine two) is the customer service number

Why does every time that i put a fuse in for my taillights it blows?

There is a short-circuit somewhere in the taillight wiring that is causing a large current to flow through the fuse and blowing it. Fix the short, then install a new fuse. This can be tough. A car I had several years ago did something similar, and it turned out that the problem was a shorted backup switch on the transmission. I spent several hours tracing wiring diagrams at the local Chrysler-Dodge dealer.

What if the buttons won't let you push them?

Buttons may become sticky if sloppy people have spilled food or drinks on them, and did not clean up. That is one possible explanation. We would have to examine the buttons in question, to be sure what is actually wrong with them.
