Check the bulbs for the backup lights. Compare the wattage on the bulbs with what your owner's manual calls for. Or ask at a parts store what the wattage should be. "super bright" back-up bulbs at higher wattages than normal can cause this to happen.

Why does AM2 30 watt fuse keeps popping on my 1999 toyota tacoma 2.7

fuses keep blowing because the current flow exceeds the rating of the fuse . That means that something is shorting out . Find the circuit that the fuse protects and check the wiring for dead shorts or a unit that is shorting out internally.

I have 2011 toyota tacoma,standard shift and reverse lights stay on all the time,andwhen the motor is running and the lights are off the inside dash lights come on when i put it in reverse,what is the...

This is gonna be tough. It sounds like you have a short in the wiring harness somewhere. Being that it's a 2011, I'd be running it to the dealer for warranty work. Electrical problems like these can be a real bad experience for a person the really doesn't know electrical. The Toyota shop has what they call a break out box that the put on your car and they can isolate the problem by reading shorts with this box.

1998 toyota tacoma efi fuse blows when trying to start

Hello. Welcome to FixYa.

I have observed this condition many, many times.

The most common cause of this problem is a short-to-ground at the fuel tank wiring harness. If you can get to the wiring connction on top of the tank, and disconnect it, replace the fuse, and, with the wiring harness still disconnected, try to start it again. If the EFI fuse does not blow, the fuel tank sending unit assembly is the culprit, and it will need to be replaced. Rust and corrosion cause the power wire to short out. This is a very common problem.

1998 dodge neon ignition feed fuse in the car keeps blowing

Are you using the same power feed from the old radio? If so, your new radio may require a higher current fuse. Check the manufacturers information the came with the custom radio and make certain the current (amps) required is the same.
If the new radio has a higher power amplifier for increased audio, it will blow a low rated fuse.
On the other hand, it sounds as though you may have pinched the power feed wire in the radio bracket, trim cover or have it resting agaist a sharp bracket. So when you put the car in drive, the dash flexes enough to cause the short.
Does it blow the fuse when you shift to reverse?
let me know.

Toyota liteace fuse box

Hi do this first in this order:

1. Locate your fuse box. ( should be under the drivers steering column or under the dash ect).
2. Usually there is a diagram on the fuse box cover. (usually in Japanese)
3. If you can't speak Japanese, that's fine just go through every fuse in the fuse box and inspect them all
4. Replace burnt out fuses with an identical amp match. (eg burnt 10amp fuse replace with new 10amp fuse). Simple.

Warning do not replace a burnt out fuse with a higher amp fuse as this may cause a fire.
If you continue blowing fuses all the time then there is something not right.
A lose positive wire may be arcing out to negative earth (car body). And causing you to blow fuses.
Its a process of common sense and elimination that will fix this problem.
Let me no how you get on.
