Condensation is shorting out your socket when the cool air is warmed up by the heat of the tail lamp.
you need to re-insulate or replace the lens seal

Why is heat not blowing out vents?


Either your heater core is clogged with coolant crud, or your blend door is not actuating between cold and hot. If when you turn the heater control knob from cool to warm and you hear a clicking or gear grinding noise, your blend door gear is probably broken. If not, it is just a clogged heater core. Let the engine warm up, then pop the hood and look for two black rubber hoses running from the engine into the firewall. feel both of these hoses. One should be hot and one should be warm. If one is cold or room temperature, the heater core is clogged and will need to be flushed out.

Why won't my van start when it's cold outside & when I brake it acts like it's going to die on me. Also loud pops come out of muffler when trying to start. It starts fine when it warms up.


Possible bad coolant temp sensor is telling engine it is warm when it is not. Popping could be result of lean fuel mix because ECU thinks engine is warm.

Fuse pops on taillights and brake lights


My information shows, the 4th. fuse is 8A for Turn signals, Tail lights, Heated mirrors:
The 5th. is 16A for Brake lights, Shiftlock, ABS.
You should check carefully to see which fuse is blowing and what circuits it controls.
You are then able to trace those circuits to locate the short.

Engine turns over but will not start only when engine is warm


my car has the same exact problem!! i have 2 pop the clutch 2 get it started when it is hot. Mine starts great when its cold or hasn't ran 4 awhile but when we are driving around for more than about 20 min in it when we stop it doesn't start at all. it wont even turn over. so i have 2 have my husband push it while i pop the clutch & then it starts & runs fine till the next time we turn it off. its not a battery problem as we'v replaced the battery, & the starter & the alternater are fine as we'v had them tested. hopefully someone that knows & has fixed this problem can answer this mystery problem!! hopefully some1 can :D

Open tailgate. Remove with trim tool or flathead screwdriver the 2 pop bolt(Just inside the lip of the taillight). Turning the taillight to the outside of the van slide the tab or hook out of the grommet. Squeeze the tabs on the bulb socket & pull out. Pull blub straight out...

10amp fuse keeps popping


check each of the terminals of those bulb you mentioned. wonder if there's a relay associated to this circuit, check for short if this is the case. remove all the light bulbs [of course - the dash may not be necessary (it's a PITA) & let's hope that it's not the culprit]. visually inspect those bulbs & replace if something unusual. put back the relay if it has no short, turn on the switch, let's hope the dash lights up & it won't blow the fuse anymore, otherwise look for uninsulated wire touching the chasssis or ay metal part of the car. you may continue replacin the bulbs.
