The rotate signal fuse controls 2 things, revolve signals and backup lights. You stated it blows automatically when you start the truck, therefore this leaves a couple of things, multifunction switch, backup switch, or trailer harness, although the trailer exploit would have to have strength going come it, which that won"t uneven the signal to be on or the transmission remained in reverse. Do you have a hand-operated transmission?Hazards are on a different fuse/power source.

Yes it is a manual trans, so have to a put it in reverse and also see if my backup lights come on?? Where deserve to I go from right here to see where the actual problem is?

Well, if it"s not in reverse when you begin the truck, climate it"s nothing to do with the wiring in ~ the tail end. However, you have actually a quick somewhere within the dash or approximately the back-up switch (located on next of transmission). So now a few more questions. Have actually you removed the dash/panels recently? Is her multifunction move still the original? If so, it could be the multifunction switch shorting out. Try testing the switch, watch if you turn the left rotate signal on, turn the crucial to on and if it still blows the fuse. I"m just trying to view if there"s something you can do so it"ll prevent blowing fuses, that way it"ll narrow it down. The fuse only have power when the truck is in run/start position.

The turning back lights work-related off the the turn/ back-up fuse, so if it"s bad, castle won"t work. Ns was just trying to number out wherein your quick is.

Well below is a brand-new symptom ns went and also put a fuse in it to view if the blows as soon as I rotate the an essential on or when I turn the rotate signal lever. Anyways that doesn"t blow the fuse anymore, what is weird though is that the turn signals work-related properly, yet now when the crucial is on or the truck is began the reverse lights room on no matter what, they room on in nuetral, 1st, or reverse it doesn"t matter, but when I press the clutch in the reverse lights close up door off, yet if I put it in reverse and also am quiet holding the clutch in then they continue to be on yet anywhere else as soon as the clutch is in then the turning back lights closeup of the door off. Currently I am really lost
to answer your various other questions, yes ns have had the dash panels off freshly I take it them off quite often and I did in search of a quick earlier as soon as it an initial started offering me the problem about 4 mainly ago, I have just been driving approximately without revolve signals. And yes as much as I recognize it is tho the initial multifunction switch.

Now the you say the reverse lights room on, I desire you to unplug the connector to the switch, located on the next of the transmission and also see if the lights rotate off or not. Also check both sides because that a brief to floor via continuous test. There are only two sensors top top the transmission, one on the tailhousing (vss sensor) and also the back-up switch.

Also check both sides because that a quick to ground via continually test.How perform I carry out this? i don"t rather understand, sorry i don"t understand much on the electric side the things. I know the continuity test prefer you desire me to placed one prong the the multimeter come ground and the other where? also not understanding examine both sides.Anyhow I will go unplug that connector and see if the shuts off the lights
The plug is a an easy two wire plug, one wire goes to the rotate signal/back increase fuse. The various other side goes come the turning back lights wiring. For this reason by putting the multimeter on every side of it, you can see if either side is ground connection out, back the next to the tailights should ground out because they space grounded, you"d need to remove the bulbs for a true test, however for now, I"m wanting to understand if the lights stay on or not. If they turn off, verify that just one side has +12 volts and the various other ground.

Alright ns unplugged the plug and it didn"t shut off the lights. Just thing the was various was through it unplugged the lights would certainly still close up door off once I pushed the clutch in and also they would even shut the lights off if it was in reverse and also I pushed the clutch in whereas prior to when it was plugged in if it was in reverse and you pushed in the cluch it would just dim them.
You have actually power a quick somewhere, at first I doubt the trailer harness, still may be, yet I"m make the efforts to figure out wherein the clutch plays into this. Inspect the clutch pedal area, make sure there aren"t any wires gift kinked by the clutch pedal. Also, there should be a wire going ago to whereby the trailer exploit is for ago up lamp on a trailer.

I will go look around on that. Ns don"t think the clutch pedal is kinking any wires since you only have actually t press it in favor 1/4 inch and the lights walk off, don"t need to push it to the floor, but I will look in case. Its monster how around 4 weeks ago I couldn"t even get a fuse in it and now ns can and its doing monster stuff prefer this.
Well ns looked around and also I don"t see any wires that would certainly be acquiring kinked through the clutch pedal and I am no really certain what else to look at for. Thanks for all your assist so far reason I am shed with this one
You have actually a cable shorting somewhere, it"s a switched source, otherwise the lights would constantly be on. And also the reverse lights room on v the key on, lock don"t irradiate up with the brakes. If they lit increase only once brakes to be on, the would median that the ground wire on one side to be bad, however I don"t think that"s your situation here. YOu have actually a power wire shorting out with the reverse lights it sounds like.

Well just how come prior to it would simply blow the fuse but now it simply leaves the turning back lights on all the moment unless the clutch is in?? any ideas why the lamp shut off once I press the clutch in? If it is in reverse and also I press the clutch in the lights just dim a little though lock won"t shut off.
