Question by  juncel (23)

What could be causing my Buick to blow fusees for my tail lights?

In the past month I have replaced the tail light fuses in my Buick two different times.

Blown fuses indicate insulation damage between fuse and light. Remove bulb, and examine the light socket. Follow the wires as far as you can forward, looking for insulation damage. Damage is most common near moving parts, like trunk lids, doors, pedals etc. DO NOT replace regular fuses with larger fuses, as this can cause a fire by overheating the wires.

It could be many things. Make sure you have the correct bulbs. Then make sure that water is not entering the light or trunk when it rains. And then inspect the wires coming from the lights for exposed wire. You need to find and fix/prevent the short.

Well you either have as short, there is two much vibration, or you have replaced the bulb with the wrong type of bulb.

The problem that you are having with your Buick has to do with your current wiring. It seems that one of your wires has been cut or loosened and is not working correctly.
