I keep blowing my tail light fuse in my 01 Protege. Every time I turn on the tail lights, the fuse blows.

Asked by Jan 29, 2014 at 06:10 PM about the 2001 Mazda Protege DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Yesterday I replace my headlights. They work great. But my tail lights, dash lights, and
front parking lights do not work. I replaced the tail lights a few months ago, and they
worked fine until I replaced the head lights. I removed the parking light bulbs and tail
light bulbs, and the fuse still blew. I checked all of the sockets with a multimeter, and
they all read less than 1 ohm of resistance. I have four fuses left and would like the
problem fixed before I run out. Any suggestions?

Go back to the headlights and pull them out. You probably pinched a wire to the park lights in the front.

I have to go to work. But I'll try that tomorrow after class and post an update.

Did this problem get solved?
