Re: tial light bulbs keep blowing
Yes, you can replace the socket. Pick up the socket a t your local auto parts store and splice into the wires, or go to your local recycle yard and purchase a tail lamp wire harness and just plug it in.

Hope this helps
In the trunk, remove the plastic caps for the storage net. Use a 10mm socket to loosen and remove the three nuts holding in the taillight assembly. The entire assembly will come loose.
Twist the socket for the bulb you are replacing and it will pop out. I would recommend replacing both of the stop lights at the same time - two on each side.
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.
Replace the bulb,
1. Open the lift gate on the rear of your Blazer or drop it if you have the tail gate that folds down. Locate the screws on the inner edge of the lift gate frame. There are two screws--remove them with a Phillips screwdriver. 2. Slide the taillight assembly out of the rear of the truck, being careful to not break the locating tabs on the rear of the housing. Locate the bulb sockets on the rear of the taillight assembly. 3. Rotate the light bulb socket counterclockwise about a quarter turn to unlock it from the taillight assembly. Pull the socket straight out of the assembly with the bulb attached to it. 4. Remove the bulb from the socket by pulling it straight out of the socket. If you are removing the entire assembly from the truck, remove the remaining sockets from the rear of the taillight assembly, lay them aside and remove the assembly completely. 5. Reinstall everything in revers and don't for get to *** some grease to your socket before you place the new bulb in place and test the operation of the new bulb before you reinstall the tail light. Thank you for using fixya and here is the bulb you need for the trail light.The 1999 Blazer uses a 3057 bulb available at most auto parts stores.
Pop the trunk open and on the inside opposite of where the tail light is,you will see black plastic wing nuts.These are mounting nuts and you need to remove them to get the tail light off.Once off,you will see a couple of bulb sockets that twist and lock into place on the taillight.Look for a tab on the side of the socket,push it in and turn counter clockwise.Once you have done that it should pull out and expose the bulb,then the bulb just pulls out of the socket.
make sure bulb 1157 is in socket correctly- offset pins in proper slots of socket, and socket properly installed in taillight assembly- two small tabs one larger tab in proper slots- hint ground terminal is up
