Q: Turn signal blowing fuse

asked by on

turn signal blowing fuse

Hello, thank you for writing in. When a fuse continues to blow, there is an extra power source coming from somewhere. Typically this means there is a short somewhere in the system. Tracing out this short can be difficult. If you have a voltmeter, you can likely trace where it is coming from. To help narrow down the areas where it may be stemming from, you will want to try and find what exactly is triggering the issue. What we mean by this is that you will want to determine if it is caused by turning on the left, right, or either turn signal. You will also want to consider if it blows immediately or if it takes a moment to fail. For more diagnostic help, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
