Park light help!!!

When I turn my lights on, the only ones to come on are my headlights. Brake lights and turn signals all work but my fuse blows every time I turn my lights on. Also, my front marker lights blink with my turn signals, is that normal? How can I fix these problems? I traced most of my wires in the back, even my crappy trailer light harness. Thank you.

You say the fuse blows when you turn your lights on. What fuse and what stops working? Yes your marker lights should blink with your turn signals. Rob

I would try and eliminate the back as being the problem first since you have a trailer harness. To the left of the fuse block there are a few wires that run through a connector and then down the driver side to the back. This has your rear lights in it. Disconnect that connector and try again. If your fuse holds, the problem is in the back. If it still pops you have a short somewhere in the front or in the gauge cluster lights under the dash. Sometimes the wires running over the steering column can cause problems. Your gauge cluster lights wire should be orange I believe. Rob
