SOURCE: tail light fuse keeps blowing
it sounds like it may be an electrical problem, you ae going to need to follow the wiring harnesses from the tail lites back to the fuse pannel as well as the dash lites if you don't find where it is shorting out. how ever the first place I would look is to see if you have a plug in for towing a trailer and if so I would start there. I would also check the pigtails where the lites plug in to see if they are all rite.

SOURCE: tail lights
I had this same problem with a nissan. When I hooked up the aftermarket stereo there was a wire for lumination and the aftermarket already has this covered so hooking it up blew the fuse for the tail lights.

If you have the money you should take your car to the mechanic as soon as possible and have them check the wiring behind and under your head lights. Or have them check your main electrical harness that contains your fuse box. the main bulk of wires runs on the right side of the engine by your head light. I had the exact same problem in my 03 x-terra. By the time I took my car in (about 3 months after intial problem stared) my entire electrical harness was burnt up and melted. I am looking at a bill $1600-$2000 to fix the problem. I can't drive my car cause it could catch on fire. please look at that very soon. I couldn't find the problem either till I took it in.
