Re: Fuses Keep Blowing
Your alternator isn't sending too many watts through the fuses because the alternator's messed-up (if it were, EVERYTHING would be blowing). The alt's putting all them watts through because the lights are actually drawing that many watts. You're right, though; they're not supposed to. I would look for shorted-out wires. Could be pretty much anywhere (yeah, it'll probably be a miserable job :-( ). A shorted-out wire will draw all the watts it can. Note that the short is probably after the switch; if the short was before the switch, first off, it'd be the turn signals or the brakes, not both, and second, it'd be drawing watts ALL THE TIME (including when the key's out of the ignition) and you would have drained your battery by now. Good luck!
