Sounds like you got a wire shorting out most likely someware between front of truck to the rear. Only thing to do is trace the wires along the frame until you find it, and if you got a trailer plug that would be the place to start. Or any wear it looks like someone has spliced into the taillight wires.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Hi i have an 1986 toyota 4runner the dash lights and running lights stopped working... fuse is blown and checked wires in the tail lights, marker lights and behind the dash with no luck... is there a...


The tail and marker lights and Instrument lights are on the same circuit so both will go out if the fuse for this circuit blows. If fuse continues to fail, check the tail light or marker globes, including the globes for the number plate, for a globe that may have an internal short causing the fault and replace as necessary. As you have already checked the wiring near the light fittings for any chafed wires that could be shorting to the body causing the fault, then a closer inspection of the wires inside all the light assemblies for any shorts may be needed.

It could also be that the instrument dimmer control has failed and is causing the fault. The electronic bits inside the dimmer control for these lights sometimes go faulty. Try disconnecting the connecting plug on the rear of the dimmer control and checking if fuse still blows. If fuse continues to fail, then the fault in the tail and marker lights circuit.

Remove all the tail, number plate and running light globes from the light assemblies and leave the instrument dimmer control disconnected and check if fuse still blows.

Disconnect the plug near each of the light assemblies to see if any of the individual assemblies is causing the fault. With all light assemblies disconnected and fuse continues to fail, then the fault must be in the main wiring loom some where.

If you have a Multimeter, it could be used to determine which light assembly has a fault between the lamp supply and earth connection.

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.
