fuse 9 keeps blowing

Asked by Sep 02, 2013 at 12:46 PM about the 1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Cheyenne Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the issue started about a month ago. dash lights/ taillights fuse blew. thought it may be trailer harness, changed out the plug, and checked wires for any bad places. none were found. so, i cleaned the ground attached to the truck. i unplugged the main harness to the rear, and tried a new fuse. it was work fine dash lights work. So, i plugged the rear back up, and pop. fuse blows after a couple seconds. i can't see any bad wires anywhere. i checked the tail lights both worked fine before the fuse blew again. do the plugs ever go bad?

yes....sadly to solve this problem (have seen them before) you'll need a "power probe" which has a tip that you can check for the presence of 12 volts with...you can apply ground with...you can "Juice it" with 12 volts all with the on-board breaker so you aren't starting fires here--- granted they aren't that cheap but this gives you the ability to check any wire and activate whatever can be activated~

My number nine fuse keeps blowing out what could cause this problem.
