12/21/2015 - FOUNTAIN, CO
THIS VEHICLE KEEPS BLOWING THE FUSE FOR FRONT PARK LIGHTS AND TAIL LIGHTS. WITHOUT LIGHTS, CANT DRIVE VEHICLE AT NIGHT OR LOW LIGHT, INCLEMENT WEATHER CONDITIONS. INITIAL INVESTIGATION/TROUBLESHOOTING LEADS TO FAULTY BODY CONTROL MODULE. THE BODY CONTROL MODULE PROVIDES GROUND CIRCUIT FOR MULTIPLE ELECTRICAL FUNCTIONS ON VEHICLE. THIS PROBLEM COULD RESULT IN VEHICLE WIRING HARNESS OVERLOADING AND CATCHING FIRE. PROBLEM NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED WITH MANUFACTURER. THIS FAULT CAN OCCUR WHILE DRIVING OR STATIONARY. FAULT OCCURS SIMPLY BY TURNING IGNITION SWITCH TO ON POSITION AND/OR ACTIVATING THE MULTI-FUNCTION SWITCH TO ACTIVATE HEADLIGHTS AND THE FUSE BLOWS IMMEDIATELY. SIMPLY REPLACING THE FUSE DOES NOT FIX THE PROBLEM. THE VEHICLE SHOULD BE DIAGNOSED BY GM DEALER TO VALIDATE PROPER FUNCTION OF LIGHTS/LIGHTING SYSTEM TO PINPOINT PROBLEM. LEFT ALONE, ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS CAN FAIL AND RESULT IN VEHICLE ELECTRICAL FIRE. SEE ATTACHED PHOTO OF FUSE BLOCK SHOWING DAMAGE TO AREA FOR PARKING LIGHT FUSE.
