Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla
My 96 corolla would not shift from park I used manual override to get home. When I got home I realized the brake lights and tail lights were not working. I checked fuse panel the stop fuse and tail light fuses were both blown out. I changed fuses and the stop fuse blew out when stepping on brake, the tail light fuse blew as soon as I turned on lights. Next step was the stop light switch located under the front dash hooked to the brake. Changed this switch put new fuses and they blew out again. What else should I check or change? Please I need help!!!!!!!
I just fixed my daughters car with the same problems. I found some ***** had ininstalled the tail/brake light bulb incorrectly, (that had to be hard) and the two contacts over time had started to make contact blowing the tail and stop light fuses.

I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.
