You need to inspect the whole wiring harness for chafing/pinched wires. Something is exposed and shorting out.

have you recently replaced the bulbs in the rear for the tail lights Check to see if you put the right kind of bulb in. I myself have done this. Most ground wires are in the rear going from the harness to the frame.

you obviously have a short to ground on one of the wires to the back (if it was the front the brake shouldn't blow the fuse). the most common problem is usually in a trailer light harness. if you look under the drivers side rear of the truck, down under the tail light there will be a plugin junction. pull this plug-in apart and see if the fuse still blows. if it does then the problem is forward of that connector, if it doesn't then the problem is behind that plugin. be sure to check for "green death" (electrical corrosion) at all joints especially any trailer hook ups.

Trying to find the problem to why my park light fuse keeps blowing?


You are replacing parts but you should be focusing on wiring. you will need to physically check all the wiring for the rear tail lights and the front park lights for shorts to ground. you can also unplug all of the bulb sockets, replace the fuse, and see if it blows. if it does than it is in the wiring. If it does not than plug the sockets back in one at a time until the fuse blows, then inspect or replace that socket.

2002 dodge ram 1500 brake and parking lots went out


Both. If the running lights ( marker, tail, clearence, or parking) and brake lights are out since the rain, a tail light assembly is broken and filling with water enough to create a short to ground. If there's no broken lens, whitch normally only blows the bulb. Then, the problem lyes in the trailer light harness. the brown wire (tail) & green wire (left turn/brake or yellow wire (right turn/brake) must be bare exsposed that shorts to ground when wet. all the trailer wires could be smashed together damaged the plastic coating on them. no problem till water shorts to ground. The white wire is the ground wire make its not able to touch the other 3 wires or bare & wet. Tape wires seperate then replace tail/mkr fuse and brake fuse. That should do it.

My tail lights are not working, it keeps blowing my fuse.


1.Unplug your taillights at the sockets and the front running lights from sockets.
2. put in new fuse after unplugging taillights.
3 turn on taillights if fuse blows then the wiring is grounding out somewhere between the switch, fuse panel, and rear and or front parking lights.
4.If fuse does not blow then plug in one socket at a time keep rechecking fuse. when the fuse blows after plugging in a certain socket suspect that one to be bad and replace.

Tail light fuse keeps blowing. I have traced the wiring back to the tail lights and it all seems fine. I have taken out the turn signal lights and the light switch, put in to the first position for parking...


Are the bulbs out of the sockets and the fuse blows?
Take bulbs out and check again
Place one back at a time if fuse was OK with bulbs out to locate bad bulb.
Otherwise.......
Do this........if still needed with bulbs out and fuse blowing.
Put a circuit breaker in to replace the fuse of the same amperage.
It will trip off then back on.
Use a standard cheap magnetic compass........place along lighting wiring........the wire with current will cause the needle to jump as circuit breaker trips on and off.
Follow path of current to problem.....the compass will stop moving once past the shorted /grounded wire/connection.

I have a 1997 chevy silverado and I keep having a fuse blow that makes my hazzard lights and brake lights not work plz help me


If you have a trailer hook up, check that the wiring is not touching ground. Constant fuse blowing is an indication of a short to ground.

First thing I can think of off hand is to take an ohm meter and probe the center contact of the cig lighter, make sure your probing the center and not the side. If it shows connection to the ground then a wire has been cut and touches the ground. So either look in the dash behind the cig lighter or in the driver door.
