If the fuse blows, you have a dead short to ground somewhere, likely around the tail lights or parking lights. Try this:
Get a box of the correct fuses.
Remove all tail and parking bulbs and put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, try installing each bulb at a time to see which light assembly causes the fuse to blow.
Let's suppose its the RH tail light assembly. Pull it off the car and check for dirt and damaged wiring.
If this is an older vehicle, there may be wiring damage (due to rust) in the harness under the carpets.
there is one inside the car. 3 possible places; under the glove box, under the steering wheel or if you open the driver side door the corner of the dashboard usually triangular piece of plastic to remove
No taillights and the headligts blow the fuse when turn on would indicate that there is a wire failure with the tail lights and when the headlights, being on the same circuit, are turned on, the fuse blows because there is a short in the tail light wiring. Good luck
Tail lights OK too or are they blown. Could be centry lights working and no tail or running lights. Trace wires out of column to check for arc and also check wires at taillights, sometimes wires get damaged back there.
look for a short to ground in the tail light circuit. Place a 12v light bulb in place of the fuse. If there is a short, it should light. When you find the short, the light will go out. Looks like the brown wire is the focus.
96 f250 circuit, don't have 95. similar. please rate as fixya if this helps.
Took it to the shop. The side marker lights were missing on my son's car. The wiring loops from the side marker lights to the tail lights. As the wires were touching in the front, they shorted out the tail lights. Capped the wires, problem solved!
PS: ordered side marker lights, too.
