My 1998 Riviera continuosly blows the fuse that controls interior lighting (overhead lights, vanity mirror lights, etc. How do I remedy this problem?

Asked by Aug 09, 2016 at 12:17 PM about the 1998 Buick Riviera Supercharged Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Additionally the battery keeps going dead after I removed the fuse as I think maybe the interior lights have been left on but I can't test that as when I replace the fuse it blows again immediately.

Interior lighting is usually all by itself in the fuse box, so once the fuse is removed that circuit is dead, so you may have more than just 1 problem. On this make and model you can perform the battery draw test and the only think you will loose is the radio stations and the clock time, and it may set the security system so make sure you know how to disable it before performing the test.
