Question about 1998 Toyota RAV4
The tail light fuse keeps blowing, i have changed the fuse several times, even added a higher amp fuse and it still fails
There is a short in the tail light wiring...look for a break in wiring insulation

This is a difficult and time consuming problem to solve unless you get lucky. I would probably by disconnecting the rear wire loom for the tail lights and trying a fuse then, if the fuse holds then there is a shorted or corroded wire, or a bad ground. BAD GROUND IS WHERE I'D LOOK FIRST. its all systematic checking after that till you find the problem. good luck.

I can get you a diagram on monday but it goes from the alternator to the power steering pump then around the tensioner pulley then around the crank pulley then to the a/c compressor then pull on the tensioner to give you some slack and slip it on the waterpump.I hope that helps.Let me know if you still need the diagram

If this vehicle has a trailer harness, that could be the problem; it could be shorted out. Additionally, if there is no trailer harness, look under the truck bed at the rear, look for a grey wiring connector that wires come out of, and run to the taillamps. I have observed corrrosion in this connector, which will result in a short circuit. You may find it necessary to cut the connector out and resplice the wires back together (eliminate the connector), if severe corrosion is indeed present.

I had the same problem. A computer check showed that the emission system was having difficulty. The catalytic converter had to be replaced. The car had under 80,000 miles on it so it was covered by a warranty (State law? Federal law?).
My battery was also dead. That was replaced free too. It had a 7 year warranty.
I do NOT purchase extended warranties.
