What size fuse should I use for the brake lights?
I have a used Express cargo van with no owners manual, the fuse is burnt
out, and I don't know if it's because it's too small.
The old fuse was a 20 amp, and it burnt out. Are you sure a 15 amp is big enough?
Yes,but if it blowed a 20 amp,you have other issues,check your bulbs,
Sounds like a short if you are blowing fuses...
I just bought the van with a blown fuse. It has a receiver hitch, and electric braks for the trailer. I'm thinking they were pulling some big trailers with lots of lights. I'll put a 15 amp fuse in there and see what happens. Thanks for the help.
Your just going to blow the 15 amp fuse as it is a smaller fuse than a 20 amp.. Sounds like there is a problem with the trailer wiring...
Agree,there is a issue in wiring or bulbs,untill you find it it will blow fuses,and if you try to up the fuse amprage,you may cause more damage to the wiring,
I will check continuity between the brake light wire and ground. That will tell me if there is a short.
