RE: [DML] door marker lights



If you have a short to ground it should blow pretty quickly, seems more
likely that it is an intermittent short.

 

Go buy a half dozen of the proper size fuse.  First, try just one door
at a time, see if either or both cause the fuse to blow.

 

If it is both check the +12 wiring from the fuse panel to where there is
a split to the left and right doors.  If it is one of them check from
that split point to the door marker light bulbs.  It sounds like you
have an exposed connector that is finding ground or a damaged wire that
is shorting to ground.  As the wire tends to run through grounded metal
in the door it is more likely your short is there than elsewhere in the
body where it routes near plywood, fiberglass and carpet.

ED,

I don't know why that is happening. You could replace the door lights
with LED's to reduce the current draw so that the fuse won't blow. Try
it and let me know what happens

Has anyone had trouble with the door marker light fuse blowing. It 
seems that if I leave the door open for more than five minutes it 
blows the fuse. I've put a larger 15amp fuse in but it blew too. Any 
suggestions are welcome
