2001 Hyundai Accent Tail light issues

I have a 2001 Accent. And i beleive it is haunted. Atleast the wiring is for that matter.
The dash lights have always blinked on and off until the car warmed up, then they would stay on. After replacing the stereo with an aftermarket deck, i lost all dash lights and control stick lights. Also my Left tail light will not turn off, and my right one seems to be blown. I checked the fuse, and the fuse was blown in the right hand light. When i replaced it and turned the lights on, it blew again. It keeps blowing fuses. Could the relay be the issue?
I am dumbfounded, and the car isnt worth brining to a mechanics shop.

SOURCE: Tail lights stay on

There is a switch that should shut these off when the front door is opened. Have the dealer fix under warranty.

SOURCE: 2004 Tiburon - tail light problem. Left side tail

did you check if power was reaching the socket? you will need a test light to check, I would by one, it will come in handy for years. see if power is at the socket, if so there is a bad ground, you need to verify that to not waste a lot of time guessing, if the turn signals work OK the ground is probably good and there well may be a problem but check power in the socket first.

SOURCE: no tail rnning lights-brake and backup works-wire

It may not be a fuse at all it sounds from the description (14a) it is a 14 gauge fusible link which is a wire that will burn out like a fuse, check for 12 volts with a multimeter or test light from the fuse box and then continue down the circuit until you cannot find power. Just before this point you should be able to see a part of the wire that looks different and that should be the fusible link.

SOURCE: brake lights don't work

This sounds like a bad brake light switch, this switch is located on the bracket that holds brake pedal,you can test for power at switch,also if you remove connector and jump terminals with a wire and see if lights lite, if lights light then switch is bad,

Dash lights fuse for a 2001 Hyundai accent

Hi Shannon

To remedy this, check to see if the dash fuse is the right amperage, the likely cause of this is a dead short in that department.

Have you fitted a stereo system recently? - check the wiring behind the instrument cluster for either a lose connection, or a open wire (live wire) shorting to ground. Lastly check to see if you have a proper ground as well

Hope this helps

The Fuse Box cover should have any of these labeled Stop Lights, Tail Lights, Brake Lights. Find the appropiate fuse and replace it with one with the same amperage.
