Where is the brake light system fuse located?

Like all fuses, the brake light system fuse can be found in the power distribution center, which is under the dashboard or tucked away underneath the hood. Never heard of the power distribution center? It’s just the technical name for a fuse box.

When do fuses and breakers need to be replaced?

There are two things that regulate the power circuits in your home: fuses and breakers. Breakers are designed to turn off when they are using too much power, as that will prevent the wiring in your home from burning out. Fuses serve much the same role, though they don’t trip — they simply burn out when they are overloaded.

What to do if your brake light fuse keeps blowing out?

You’ll need a connect test light for the next step (you can get one at any auto parts store.) Turn your car’s ignition to the “on” position, grab the connect test light and attach it to a ground, like the dash or the body of the car, and gently press the tip of the tester to each of the fuse’s two ends. Now, press down lightly on the gas pedal.

Can a circuit breaker be tripped when there is no power?

It is a rare occurrence, which is one reason why a situation where there is no power and the circuit breaker is not tripped can be puzzling at first. A circuit breaker, the connecting wire and appliance, however, are all components of a simple circuit that you can troubleshoot with a standard voltage meter.

Where are the circuit breakers on a MBEC fuse?

The MBEC fuse feeds the right door and power seat circuit breakers which are located in the relay center on the firewall near the break pedal. You can try installing a new fuse AFTER pulling the circuit breakers. If the fuse still blows the problem is between the outside fuse box and the inside relay center.

Where is the lbec2 fuse located on a car?

The LBEC2 fuse is located at position #75 in the underhood fuse relay block. The vehicle came with the low profile or miniature J-Case fuses. During testing I chose to use the standard length fuse as it is easier to install and remove. As always I consulted a wiring diagram to see how this circuit was laid out.

How to troubleshoot no power and circuit breaker not tripped?

Verify the voltage is correct. No power at the connection terminal while the circuit breaker is in the On position indicates a defective circuit breaker. Remove the receptacle cover from the outlet without power. Check for voltage at the wire connection terminals on the side of the receptacle.

Why is the fuse still blowing on my Avalanche?

If the fuse still blows the problem is between the outside fuse box and the inside relay center. If the fuse does not blow then reinstall the circuit breakers one at a time and see what happens.

Why does my brake light fuse keep blowing out?

Odds are the electrical system trouble is nothing more than a failed brake light system fuse. Each part of the car’s electrical system corresponds to a fuse, which protects it from amperage overload; if one electrical component blows out, the rest of the car doesn’t get fried.

Why are all of the brake lights not working?

If none of your three brake lights is working, it’s doubtful that all of the individual bulbs have burned out. It’s far more likely you have an electrical system problem. It may sound complicated and expensive, but don’t worry.
