Why does the fuse blow when switching the side lights on.

Asked by Nov 17, 2012 at 06:35 AM about the 1992 Toyota MR2 Turbo coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The footwell fuse- 15amp- blows when the light switch is turned on, the headlights still pop up and work but no side lights or dash lights and the turbo timer has stopped working. Ive checked all the bulbs, they are ok. HELP

You have a short in your wiring somewhere, the headlamp motors and lights are on a different fuse so they would not be affected by this short. You now have the annoying task of shorthunting. I suggest you start by checking connectors and potential chafing areas like bulkhead passthroughs.

Cheers, I will try that.
