This sounds like the horn may have a short in it somewhere. Does the horn blow at all? Try this: Make sure you have a good fuse installed to this circuit again. Disconnect the horn and place a volt/ohm meter set to DC volts on the horn connections. If there is just 1 wire going to the horn, put that wire on the red wire of the meter. Put the black wire of the meter to a good ground, preferably the negative battery terminal. Now press the horn and see if there is a reading of around 12 Volts. If so, replace the horn. If not, and the fuse blows again, check the wiring for a fray/short to ground. When you're looking at the horn of course, make sure the positive lead isn't shorting to ground as well.

1999 Buick LeSabre keeps blowing fuses for the tail lights. Fuse - and lights - may be fine for a week, or may blow in an hour. I see no problems in the harness near the lamps. One person suggested a problem with the system that automatically turns lights on at dark, another wondered if running phone charger from lighter could be an issue. I have no wiring diagram and local library does not carry car manuals. Suggestions?


This would indicate a sudden surge or increase of current flow either from a short or an increased load. I would still suggest to double check the wiring of the lights, check the wiring of their switches wither from the brake or the light itself. A ... 1999 Buick LeSabre

My "ABS" light stays on and the fuse for my electric seats keeps blowing out. I'm wondering if the ABS fuse should be changed. If it also blows out then could there be a problem with the electrical system & if so how serious is the problem? Maybe even a rough idea as to how much this could cost or suggestions as to whether there may be no connection between the ABS and Seats.

When I hook up my horse trailer to my 2003 Ford Excursion, it blows the fuse for the running lights. The blinkers and brake lights work, but that is all. If I change the blown fuse, it will only blow again. I had the plug changed because it appeared loose and that did not seem to fix the problem. When the place put a 25 amp fuse in place of the 20 amp, it seemed to be fine. Is it safe to use the 25 amp. or could it be a grounding issue with the trailer. The horse trailer is a 2006 Sundowner.
