I think you have a short circuit in "that headlight wire" that is causing the fuse to keep blowing due to a dead short.
Maybe a positive voltage wire that is touching the ground (metal part) on you car or touching some other connection.

Hope this helps.

Regards.

SOURCE: Security Light always on, door lock fuse keeps blowing

This is most likely a problem with your Passlock anti-theft system which is known issue with these cars. Passlock is a "passive" anti-theft system, which means that it will disable your ability to start the car if it thinks there is a problem. The three components that can cause this are: 1) Ignition Switch, 2) Ignition Cylinder, 3) Body Control Module (computer). The dealer is the only one who can solve this problem (unless you can bypass it, but it is not that easy). Estimated repair from most dealers is $800 and up.

SOURCE: all brake lights suddenly stopped working changed bulbs park light fuse and cant find any blown fuses what else can it be

brake switch on the pedal bad.bad relay. do you have a second fuse box if so check it. look at the wiring see if it is frayed or chafed check the connections.check all the fuses not just the ones labeled brakes.switch the relay with one that you know is good like turn signal and see if the turn signal works then check brakes.use a 12 volt test light check the brake switch and probe the wires. hope this helped if not write back and i'll give you more ideas.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Focus electric locks/acuator failure recurring problem

I would follow their recommendation as I had the same problem with my car. They unhooked the power to that door and it was fine. The problem was a short in the wiring in the door that was causing the problem. So maybe get them to check the wiring in the door as well.

SOURCE: no low beams bulbs are ok fuses look good

There may be a relay that operates the low beam lights, check the owners manual to see if there is a relay, you should be able to hear it go "click" if there is one.

Replased right front blinker bulb. when taking broken burnt bulb out of socket wires crossed i could smell somthing burning front bulb works now. but the rear running lights dont work and head lights


Get a multimeter check for DC voltage at the light sockets. No voltage means blown fuses. You can also use the multimeter to check the bulbs to see if they have somehow blown.

2005 lexus gs 300 stuck in park


could be the fuse for the brake lights if its blown you will not be able to get the transmission out of park its a safety precaution built into the car so your not driving with out brake lights check all your bulbs in the tail lights and turn signals look for water in the tail/signal light this will cause the blown fuse and the bulb will be broken and the glass will be discolored with white smoked tint to it this comes from the bulb exploding from +/- touching each other blowing the fuse, another thing to check would be your brake light switch if you change the fuse and step on the pedal and if the fuse blows and the same thing happens that's the problem LATER MAN!

Have a 2003 Ford Ranger small truck. The headlights will not work. Put bulb in did not work, tried to dim and lights go out. pushing dimmer would not dim.


If both heads lights are out then it's likely a blown fuse. You probably have a fuse block under the hood near the battery. Remove the cover and look for any fuses labeled headlights. You might also a diagram in your manual. IF the fuse is good then look for a relay. Again its usually some where on the fuse block itself.

Yes, seems that you might have a few fuses that are blown out. There are two places for the fuses, one is under the bonnet, and one is inside the car, under the steering wheel. Both have a diagram either close to them, or in the dashboard fuses, usually the cover has the diagram on the back. This way you will know which ones to check. If you can't find the diagram you might need a "test light" to see which ones are not working. If a fuse is blown, you will see that the wire inside the plastic in between the pins is broken. Also, on the back side of the fuse you will see the amperage value. A fuse must be replaced with the exact same amperage value fuse.

Brake lights went out/has new switch, bulbs look good/no blown fuse that I know of


Remove a bulb and have someone step on the brake pedal. Use a volt meter or test light to see if there is power at the bulb socket. This will at least tell you where to head for the next step.

ABS light, gear won't change


Sounds like he may have blown the brake light fuse while messing with the bulb. Make sure the correct bulb is installed. It should be a double filament bulb not a single.The wrong bulb will blow the fuse.
The shift lock solenoid uses the brake light switch to unlock.
The ABS code will be for the brake light system and will clear itself when the power is restored to the brake light switch.
