What is on Fuse 17????

Need some help sorting out my electrical problem. I keep blowing fuse 17. At first I thought it was a blown license plate bulb, and wrapped the socket in electrical tape and the lights started working again. A few weeks later the fuse blew and now every time I can get the fuse to blow. Whats odd, is that the fuse will be fine if I turn on the headlights with the key off. Once I turn the key to on, the fuse blows instantly. What is on that fuse that turns on once the key is inserted?

Try looking in your owners manual. It lists what each fuse location is for.

In the manual it just states "exterior ilumination" i believe. I know that the parking lights, fog lights, tail lights, dash and hvac/radio lights are on this fuse.

I'm trying to track down what else might be on it as the fuse only blows when I turn the key.

Tracking down electrical short???

Did you ever pull the radio/gauges and look for the short?

Yup. It's driving me up a wall. Hate having to put on my hazards to drive at night. I've checked all the bulbs, pulled harnesses and cannot find what is causing the fuse to blow. Trying to see what else is on that circuit that does not turn on until the key is moved to "on".

You are going to have to pull it apart... other threads have this issue after a radio install... something is pinching a wire.
