1998 Infiniti i30 - tail lights out, fuse blown

Hi - the tail lights on my 1998 Infiniti i30 are out. (I listed Nissan Maxima below). The fuse under the steering wheel, a 7.5 amp is blown. The fuse near the battery, a 15 amp, is fine. When I replace the 7.5 amp fuse under the wheel with a 15 amp fuse, the tail lights work fine. However, I'm almost certain I shouldn't do this - am I correct in this assumption? I'm wondering what I can do to diagnose it myself? Thanks!

dashboard lights are brighter when lights are off so you can see stuff in the daylight-check and make sure you have the correct bulb and its plugged in correctly-something is confusing the cpu-a blown fuse usually means something is shorted out-check for cut or bare wires around your tailamps-cheers Denny

Replaced tail light fuse, which turned on tail


most likely you have a short in one of the bulb connectors or the hot wire from them is pinched on medal somewhere. Or you have water intrusion shorting one out. Inspect the bulbs. Leave both bulbs out. install fuse. Press brake pedal several times and hold. Inspect fuse. if its blown its the pedal switch that's bad or a pinched wire from there. If good put one bulb in. Test again,, then the next bulb. If you see something obvious fix it.

Nissan march driver side park light and tail light problem


check the fuses- some car makes uses individual fuses per side. Just saw that in a mitsubishi- I believe Nissan does that too. Those fuses are probably under your hood.
