      Could be an electrical issue, but maybe not. Check the dimmer near the light swich and see if you moved it to low by mistake when leaving car and rubbing on it. Been there done that.

    Why would the parking light fuse keep blowing leaving me without rear lights or panel lights?
    I have head lights and brake lights, but no rear lights. I have rewired the ground wire in the rear which fixed this problem in the past. This time I replaced the head light switch and cruise control switch thinking they might be the problem. Today I moved the ...

      The wiring diagram shows that the battery voltage that flows from the headlight switch to the parking lamp fuse also powers the cigarette lighter which has been responsible for causing more blown fuses than any other circuit. That being said, try unplugging the orange wire that powers the cigarette lighter from behind the cigarette lighter and see if the fuse stays good.

      Well...I tried it and I'm still blowing that fuse. I've had this happen twice in the past and each time it was the ground wire to the rear lights that was bad. After I repaired it back in May/June it's been fine until this past month. The wiring still looks good. Any other thoughts? Unfortunately, wiring is not my forte'. Thanks for any help you can give.

      I will try to give you an alternate procedure to narrow down the cause later tonight. I have to print a wiring diagram and tape the 4 sheets together like a puzzle.

      Locate the orange wire that comes off one leg of the fuse that is popping. Cut it in an area that allows you to reconnect the two cut ends again later if need be, but cut the wire before it goes anyplace that you can't see and definitely before any connection to any other wire. Now locate the orange wire that comes off your headlight switch and cut that wire several inches from the headlight switch. Now join together the wire coming off the headlight switch which you cut and the wire coming off the fuse using anything; a long jumper / alligator lead or a wire. Now make the temporary connection and see if the fuse is OK now when you turn the parking lights on. Update me.

      The location of the ground will not cause the fuse to pop.

      I appreciate your research! I won't be able to get to it for a couple of days due to work/overtime- gotta make the money to keep my trucks running. I'll let you know how things go. Thanks again, really appreciate it!

      Well I think we figured it out. The circuit board on the rear light was bad. I switch them out with another set that I had and it seems to have done the trick. Wow, electrical stuff is a pain. Thanks again for your help and feel free to add that fix to your list of possibilities. :)

    A/C will blow hot air on passenger side and cold air on driver side and sometimes it's reversed.
    180,00 miles, happens when in A/C or heat mode, and when driving or stopped, been doing this for year or so. no check engine light

    None of my power windows work.can't find circuit breaker location none in fuse boxes.

      The fuse box should have fuses labeled for power windows. If the window fuses are good you should test the driver side master switch. Power for all the windows routes thru the master switch. If no windows operate you likely need a new master switch.

    My fan speed dial only works up number3 added ground to fan motor to get that to work is that cluster bad and would that
    interfere with my air conditioner from not coming on

      Just so I can understand what you mean, your blower speeds only work up to and including fan speed 3, but the speeds that are beyond (higher speed) do not work. Is that correct? If that is what you are saying then you have a faulty blower motor resistor. The resistor is attached to the heater / AC housing and is easy to change.

    What makes my 2000 Chevrolet Venture's lights pulse / flicker when engine is running.
    This happens as soon as the vehicle is started along with a fluctuating gas gauge.
     
    • HouseCallAuto
      10/27/2013 HouseCallAuto
      Which lights flicker? Headlights, dash lights? Interior lights? Is it possible that the fuel gauge fluctuation does not happen at the same time as the flickering? Or you can be sure that they happen together? Important.

      The fuel pump does its own thing separate from the pulsing lights. I had a test light grounded to the body with the key turned on and the test light probe fell on the manifold and came on.

      A bad alternator ( even if it passed bench test ) is the cause of the flickering light.

      Thank you very much. I had asked someone if it could be the alternator due to a test light I was grounding on the fender well with the ignition key on but not started and the probe fell on the manifold and lit up which made me think that I was getting a positive feed back from the alternator or starter.
    • HouseCallAuto
      10/28/2013 HouseCallAuto
      If you unplug the electrical connector from the alternator and the flickering stops, that would confirm the alternator. if it still flickers then that would be a bad BCM.
