Quite often it is in your trailer plug, but you have a damaged wire somewhere, First check your trailer plug, replace fuse if it blows now then unplug the plug under the dash on the drivers side pillar that runs under the carpet, replace fuse if it blows now you will need a professional, if it works you know where to chase it

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

What type of fuse should be used for the tail and dashboard lights to go on

you have a short to ground or accessories like bulbs or other circuit on the same fuse take more current then the fuse rate.
example: the circuit fuse is rated 20 amps an the circuit draw 24amps at peak ,the fuse will blow even no short to ground.

When you turn on your head lamp do you notice that you also have rear tail lights that are lit up as well? I have noticed on some occasion, both front headlamp assemblies could possibly be blown at the same time. One of the most important tools for checking to see if you have power on the low and high beam circuit will be a automotive test lamp, you can purchase these at most auto parts stores.

Charging system, Replace the alernator it shorting out. In order for a alternator to work the rotor create a magnetic flux this flux is what gives the battery it charge. In order to creat this flux which is a A/C current it needs to be a D/C current there in place is a wheatstone bridge or a half wave rectifier. now why the light show? light bulds do not know the difference from A/C to D/C .power is power to it. replace alternator.

No tail lights , no dashboard lights and burns 20 amps fuse every time I put a new one. Whats problem ?

You have a dead short either at the tail lights (bulb) or the dashboard lights. It's possible that the wiring to either of these two places is shorted. Don't resort to using a very heavy fuse and watching for smoke! That can trash other wiring running in the same wire loom or even start a fire! Good luck!

I have a 98 Camry and was having problems with tail lights and fuses. I kept blowing a fuse which was making my tail lights not work. I tried paying very close attention to when they would be working and all the sudden not be working. I know it sounded funny, but I told my mechanic that it seemed if I used my trunk, my fuse would blow. Come to find out, the wire was touching the hinges of my trunk. So when I popped my trunk and closed it, it blew my fuse every time.
