Hello, First off you have a direct short...this is where there is high resistance in the circuit such as corrusion from a water leak, rain or bad seals or a short to ground. Often there is a problem with bulbs that appear to be the same catalog number that match, yet they may have different filiments or bases. THE OLDER VOLVOS WERE VERY TOUCHY WHEN IT COMES TO CERTAIN BULBS AND THEIR METAL BASES.
Did you recently replace the bulb in the 3rd Brake light assembly in the back window? I just checked all Toyota service bulletins on ALLDATA and MITCHELL for this model year and found nothing.
Let me know what your next plan of action is........thank you

The taillight fuse should also feed the front parking lights. Check them . It would also help to buy a tech manual with wiring diagrams to see if anything else is wired to that fuse that could be causing the problem

    The front parking lights and therear taillights should be the same fuse. Is the fuse that is blowing for the rear taillights or the rear brake lights?

Keep blowing taillight fuse on 1995 jeep xj sport country

The taillight circuit includes the front parking lights.
You would need to take the bulbs out and check each socket for a short to ground.

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.

My tailights and dashlights won't work because the fuse blows.

it sounds like a short in the park will have to start by disconnecting headlight switch then install fuse,then check all park light bulbs and there sockets, its gonna be a bad switch or socket, enless theres a wire touching ground ,but start with the switch and checking all sockets. hope this helps.

I keep blowing my tail light fuse

Once you remove the Right hand side tail light assembly (by removing 3 wing nuts from the trunk), look straight down (from the tail light opening). You will see the top of the muffler and there is a wire harness right top of it. Check for wear/heat damage.

My 2002 nissan pulsar keeps blowing the taillight fuse,when it blows the fuse the interior lights,cluster lights all stop working,everytime i put a new fuse in it blows up so what should i do?

look for a bear wire in the trunk or somewhere along the way. The circuit is definatly overloaded. It could even be the cigar lighter. Have yuo had any work done lately?

No taillights, no dash backlighting, no headlights-on chime; all other lights okay

The taillights are commonly connected to the dash light circuit ( so you can be aware when they do not work ).
Start with the fuse box. Read carefully for the correct fuse to change. Sometimes they have a strange name associated with them. Turn the lights off before you change the fuse otherwise they may blow even if the circuit is OK. If it blows again you need to look further to find a shorted wire. ( Most likely in the boot, near the taillights, a wire has been crushed or damaged.

Keep blowing fuse for rear taillights and dashboard lights

Sounds like loose wires. Had a similar problem with my 03 Durango. Kept blowing fuses when I put them in. Came to find out my trailer wiring harness had fried and was shorting out.

Yes, the timing of the start of the problem indicates it's something that happened then. It could be a wire on the assembly was pinched or covering damaged by a screw holding it in place. How quickly did it blow the 1st replaced fuse? Let me know how u make out.
