SOURCE: taillight fuse keeps blowing

Hello, First off you have a direct short...this is where there is high resistance in the circuit such as corrusion from a water leak, rain or bad seals or a short to ground. Often there is a problem with bulbs that appear to be the same catalog number that match, yet they may have different filiments or bases. THE OLDER VOLVOS WERE VERY TOUCHY WHEN IT COMES TO CERTAIN BULBS AND THEIR METAL BASES.
Did you recently replace the bulb in the 3rd Brake light assembly in the back window? I just checked all Toyota service bulletins on ALLDATA and MITCHELL for this model year and found nothing.
Let me know what your next plan of action is........thank you

SOURCE: 2000 honda civic vp keeps blowing low beam fuses left and right.

Fuses nearly always blow because of a bad earth. The switch only needs to short for a moment and the fuse will blow.

See if you can find a replcement swtich from a local breaker's yard or ebay and go on from there.

Are the bulbs out of the sockets and the fuse blows?
Take bulbs out and check again
Place one back at a time if fuse was OK with bulbs out to locate bad bulb.
Otherwise.......
Do this........if still needed with bulbs out and fuse blowing.
Put a circuit breaker in to replace the fuse of the same amperage.
It will trip off then back on.
Use a standard cheap magnetic compass........place along lighting wiring........the wire with current will cause the needle to jump as circuit breaker trips on and off.
Follow path of current to problem.....the compass will stop moving once past the shorted /grounded wire/connection.

Sounds like you have some electrical gremlins that have moved in...

Since the fan does not even come on, and the fuses keep blowing. It sounds like the resistor pack for the blower motor could have failed, or a wire is shorted somewhere.

The ABS could simply be a wire, or sensor that was carelessly overlooked to be plugged back in when the breaks were done. Or it could be more serious.

Fuse keeps blowing


Depending what amperage fuse was blown, ( agreeing with jtarin if you are dealing with the brake lights) Then you could have a possible short to Ground. Meaning that there is a break in the wire insulation allowing the bare wire contacting metal. This Break in the insulation is before the Load ( bulb, motor, etc) Allowing the fuse to blow.

Check wires for cracks and breaks. replace/repair as needed.

Break light will not work


It's blowing the fuse because there is a short somewhere in the circuit. Your inspection just hasn't found it yet. Look for bare spots on the wiring; places where the wire might be pressed against metal (especially sharp edges); damaged connectors; etc.

Both brake lights out--don't know for how long


The brake lights work off a different circuit than the tail lights do, that's why there is a seperate fuse.Check the brake light switch, which is under the dash near the top of the brake pedal on the back side of it, it might be stuck in.
