1991 toyota corolla tail lights

Our tail lights went out, we checked the fuse and it was blown. We replaced it and the fuse blew as soon as we put current though it. We are sure it was the right size fuse. How do we go about finding the problem. Also the dash lights are not functioning, they are on the same circuit, but they havn't worked for a month or so.

The tail lights in my sister's '90s Subaru had a similar problem, and nobody could diagnose it, so she just kept a bunch of fuses in the car. (When she replaced a fuse, it would be a while before it blew again -- days, weeks or even months).
In your case, there's a continuous short circuit somewhere. I'd start with the tail lights themselves -- remove the bulb on one side, replace the fuse, then test. If the other bulb lights and the fuse didn't blow, you know the problem is in the wiring to the bulb you removed. If the fuse DID blow, replace the bulb, remove the bulb from the other light, replace the fuse and test again. Examine the wires carefully looking for nicks or bare insulation.
If the fuse fails whichever bulb is installed (or even if no bulbs!), then the short circuit is probably at the fuse box connectors for those wires, or inside the fuse box itself.
I assume you're talking about the tail lights that turn on and off with the headlights. If you're talking about the brake lights, the test procedure is the same, but don't forget about the high-mounted center brake light, if your car has one.

SOURCE: no brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park

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.

and took out: park-tail, running lights and dash dim lights are all the same.

If the tail lights and the dash lights stopped working and the tail light and the panel lighting fuses are both o.k. and you can find no other blown fuses then the problem is most likely the headlight switch.

My 1990 toyota corolla tail lights and dash lights stopped working after i hooked up a stereo and sub and amp system...i checked the fuse and its good..i cant find any wiring problems..help? anybody?


which fuse did you check. verify the wiring to the radio than comes from the light switch to the radio. if all this worked before , then it has to be work that you have done. the only link from the light switch to the radio is for inst panel dimming. first disconnect that wire and ck fuse for tail lights. make sure there is power on both sides of the fuse, use a test light.

If you put your foot on the brake, the tail lights and parking lights will still come on. Possibly your brake is sticking. Check to see if it is and if it is put WD40 for a quick fix. See a tech for them to fix your brake alignment. Good Luck!
