1.Unplug your taillights at the sockets and the front running lights from sockets.
2. put in new fuse after unplugging taillights.
3 turn on taillights if fuse blows then the wiring is grounding out somewhere between the switch, fuse panel, and rear and or front parking lights.
4.If fuse does not blow then plug in one socket at a time keep rechecking fuse. when the fuse blows after plugging in a certain socket suspect that one to be bad and replace.

SOURCE: tail lights

I had this same problem with a nissan. When I hooked up the aftermarket stereo there was a wire for lumination and the aftermarket already has this covered so hooking it up blew the fuse for the tail lights.

I KNOW YOU HAVE AN ELECTRICAL SHORT.WAS AN ALARM INSTALLED OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ACCESSORY? CHECK WITH DODGE TO FIND OUT ABOUT A RECALL.IF SOMETHING WAS INSTALLED, TAKE IT BACK THERE TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT IF NOT HAVE A AUTO TECHNICIAN CHECK IT FOR YOU.

SOURCE: 2003 dodge durango #4 fuse keeps blowing,

OK there is a short in your car
take all the light bulbs out of the light that trigger the problem this break the current place one bulb in at a time checking that the fuse has not blown this will pin point where the problem is
once you find the problem you can replace the socket as it may have started to corrode check for water
once you replace the socket you should not have a problem
if you do let me know

SOURCE: tail light fuse keeps blowing

Terry: It's obvious I'm not dealing with a USA spec car, however, I had lived in the U.S. Virgin Islands and am quite familiar with the Bluebirds of the past. Nissan still uses the same basic circuitry designs as far as what circuits serve what. Here are the circuits to look at.
All lights which are switched on by the headlight switch. This includes the Cigarette lighter back light, radio light power supply, automatics have shifter back lighting as well as your climate controls and all dash lights. Your side marker lights are also served by this circuit. The dash lights go through a type of dimmer switch which essentially creates resistance, thus dimming the lights. Sometimes the clocks are tied into the circuits. Start with the simple things first and work your way in. There is a type of fuse called a circuit breaker which will plug into the fuse block in place of the fuse.
Get the same rating as the one you pulled out. DO NOT USE A JUMPER WIRE AND LET THE SMOKE OUT OF THE WIRES!
If the circuit breaker blows immediately, you have a serious short!
With the circuit breaker, if the short is not real bad, the lights will burn for a little bit before the breaker blows. Once it cools, it will close and the circuit will operate again. While it is in operation, you look for the lights that operate and the ones that don't. Check the ones that don't. Although it's rare for a bulb to cause a fuse to blow, it does happen.
I often find problems are due to radio installations or other types of installations. So if you don't have a factory radio or if you have some type of accessory which has been installed in the console or dash, this would be a prime suspect. Nissan's are not really known for electrical problems unless they have been in collisions. If your car has been in a collision, look in the area where it was hit. You may find a pinched wire or damaged insulation. I am not quite sure what model your car would compare to in reference to a US car.
The Bluebird's were 510's. Are the Maxima's now? What ever model it is, unless it has no sister model imported to the
USA, the odds are that the circuits are going to be real close if not identical! I hope I have been of some assistance. Let me know.

SOURCE: why does my fuse keep blowing for my tail lights

first remove the bulbs then put in fuse if fuse does not blow then your wiring is good and it is in one of the bulbs replace one bulb at a time to see if the fuse blows, when it blows on the light you put in that bulb is your problem, sometimes you can't see the bulb is bad so buy a replacement bulb and try again if it does not blow you have fixed you own problem, if it does not your out ten bucks and it's time to take itto a mechanic, Hope this helps and if it does please rate me.

fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw

My fuse keeps blowinng when i turn on my lights but the headlights ,blake lights and turn signals work but no tail or parking lights


If the fuse blows, you have a dead short to ground somewhere, likely around the tail lights or parking lights. Try this:

Get a box of the correct fuses.
Remove all tail and parking bulbs and put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, try installing each bulb at a time to see which light assembly causes the fuse to blow.
Let's suppose its the RH tail light assembly. Pull it off the car and check for dirt and damaged wiring.

If this is an older vehicle, there may be wiring damage (due to rust) in the harness under the carpets.

Tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it


you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.
