No running lights, fuse keeps tripping

I have no driver side running lights, I have blinkers and brakes but no running. Its killing 15amp fuses as soon as I put them in, and its killing 25amp fuses when I turn on the running lights. Anybody have any suggestions where to start tracing it? Has anybody had this problem?

First off have you made any changes to any wire harness?


Check your bulbs I had a customers vehicle do the same thing and it ended up being a filament wire inside the bulb. When the bulb blew it welded the two filament wires together and some how that overloaded the circuit. Didn't make any sense cause it should have just lit up the other filament but but how often do things make sense.

If you were some kid driving a Honda I'd chuckle and just tell you to put into a bigger fuse

Since you are a Jeeper I'd suggest you'd look for any lose harnesses or broken bulbs. Did you have any stereo work done where a tech might have been messing around with wires anywhere?

In my old Camaro I changed my interior lights to black lights and they ended up popping fuses every other day. Did you change or customize anything?
