Q: Fuse for turn signals going out

asked by on

The red fuse for the turn signal keeps going out.

It sounds like you may have a short circuit somewhere. If there is any exposed wiring that is able to come in contact with a metal surface, this can cause the problem. I would recommend having a technician inspect the wiring that goes to your turn signal for any missing insulation. I would also check for battery voltage on both sides of the fuse box in order to tell where the short circuit is located. Once the short circuit is located, it can be fixed as simply as applying some electrical tape or as difficult as replacing an entire wiring harness. The technician who inspects your vehicle will be able to tell you for sure.
