I am not completely familiar with that make and model but I believe you will find the fuse you are looking for under the hood. There should be an accessible fuse/relay box located normally on the same side of the vehicle as the battery. If you have an owners manual for the vehicle that should have a layout of the box. If not, then a voltmeter can be used to find the blown fuse.

No rear running lights

go back to where you spliced in the harness and check that you have not spliced a power wire to a ground wire
( only reason why fuses blow is a dead short)

How to install a harness for trailer lights on a 1993 honda accord station wagon

The SIMPLE way to do it is...

You can buy replacement taillight bulbs with wiring pigtail wiring hanging out of the side of the bulb. You'd use them to replace your existing taillight bulbs and connect your trailer harness to the pigtail wires. You may need to drill through the taillight housing to get the harness wiring in to the bulbs - if you have to do that, seal it back up around the wiring with RTV silicone.

That's a lot easier than tracking down each wire, probing it to find out what it does, and splicing into it with pinch splices (which aren't very reliable), then periodically replacing the pinch splices that've gone bad and made your trailer lights fail. You can make a pretty good splice to the pigtailed taillight bulbs, and it's really easy to tell what each pigtail does - brake/turn or park light.

I have a 1991 Z71 k1500 chevy silverado 5.7L 350 4x4 the CTSY fuse is drawing power

This problem is usually caused by a door or trunk switch. It could also be caused by a reading light shorting out under the headliner. The only way to find out which one is the cause is to eleviate 1 at a time by disconnecting 1 at a time untill you find the one that is shorting out.Some times it is just the bulb that can cause this try removing 1 bulb at a time first this is the easiet to start at.Also if you have a trailer hitch with wiring eleviate this first.This trailer wiring harness can cause alot of this kind of problems because they are exsposed to the elemnts they corod oftenand short out or get pinched and short out.

Tail light fuse blows immediatly it used to take a few minutes to blow all blubs are good what is the problem

There is a short circuit to ground. I am constantly preaching that it does absolutely no good to replace a blown fuse until the cause of the blown fuse is found. Fuses do not blow for no reason. If you have a blown fuse it means that you have a circuit overload that could potentially burn you truck to the ground. Simply replacing the fuse will only cause another fuse to give up its life to save your truck from roasting. On pickup trucks with trailer hitches, the first place I look for a problem with tail lights is in the trailer wiring harness. They are usually not installed properly. I have seen several of the plug-in type trailer harnesses (the kind that simply plugs in at the connector between the body harness and the bed harness) short internally. You can usually fix the tail lights by simply disconnecting the trailer harness and plugging the body harness back into the bed harness.

If this does not fix the problem, the tail light circuits will have to be traced from the fuse all the way back to the lights to find out where the short is.

2006 Ford F250 Super Duty no running light for trailer and keep blowing a fuse

have seen this a few times on fords. I'm assuming it only blows when you use the trailer. then the only cause can be a shorted wire somewhere between the trailer connector to the lights at the rear of the trailer or maybe the light assembly is bad. If the problem happens when you have no trailer hooked up then inspect the trunk harness. and wiring under the bumpers. Something 12v got pinched.

No running lights on my trailer.

Turn your headlights on and use a test light to check the harness on your vehicle to make sure you are getting power through the connection. If so, connect the trailer plug into your the trailer receptacle on your vehicle and cut probe through the correct wire after the harness. This will check to ensure you are getting fire through the conection. Always start at your vehicle and work to the trailer. If you are not getting power through the conection, check for a loose wire or replace connector... this is where you will find your problem more than likely. If you're getting power through your harness, you are loosing power between your plug and your lights. Probably a short in the wire. It will be easier to replace the wire instead of trying to locate the short. Good luck!!

Pressing brake causing blinker issue

The trailer harness that was installed probably has a short inside the box that distributes power to the trailer pig-tail. Remove the trailer harness. You problem will be cured.
