Question about 2001 Lexus IS 300
My tail light fuse for the lights being on at night without stepping on the brakes keeps blowing. I replaced the fuse numerous times, sometimes it lasts for a little while, most times it blows within minutes. Where can i look for what could be tripping the fuse to blow each time? Anything to do with having an aftermarket stereo? Thanks.
Seen this before ,,, You have to disconnect the ground wire from the radio to the vehicle... What has most likely happened is that the radio earth has been connected to the previous radio's illumination wire.
What will appear to be a ground connection while the side lights are OFF is in fact a positive that acts a a ground connection untill the side lights are turned ON
The radio should be earthed properly there after..

Where do you have the power wire for stereo hooked or hooked into?

The Tail lights and Instrument lights are usually on the same circuit so both will go out if the fuse for the circuit blows. Check for a blown fuse for this circuit and replace if out. If fuse continues to fail, check the tail light or side globes for a faulty globe and replace if necessary. Also check for any chafed wires that could be shorting to the body causing the fuse to blow.
