FIRST of all you check all the items on the fuse that blows then remove all the fuses or wires to that item,i dident think the tail lights were 50 amp but still remove the plug from the rear lights and trace them to wards the front ,it sounds like a wire harness is trapped and shorten out about where the door shuts .where the tail gate closes.something under the floor .or under the body on chassis,but when you check all that works like nothing on the left of cab then thats where you start looking .or a wire hanging on the side of the engine ,but dont put in any more fuses untill you have checked out all possible wires either trapped or not .
Keep looking and you will find it AND only use the amp fuses the book says nothing bigger as a dead short wont only blow it can cause a FIRE.
lET ME KNOW HOW YOU GET ON it will take you a few hrs ....goodluck.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?

fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

No dash lights or park lights/ tail lights. found the fuse that was blown # 14 its a 15 amp, put a new one in and it blew as soon as i turned on the lights, so i bought a new light switch for like 50...

As with any electrical problem where a fuse blows, you will have to trace the circuit to find the overload or short to ground. It could be any of the lamp sockets or in the wiring harness.

My tail light fuse on my92 s-10 just keeps on blowin and when it blows my tail lights and my inside dash lights doint work, howcome it would b doin that??

Check your tail light and other running light sockets for corrosion.
Pull each and every bulb to check it, also check the back side of the socket.
(Your headlights are not part of this circuit.)
Rust or water with rust will conduct enough current to blow the fuses.
Please revert back to the 20 amp fuse, as you may damage the wires leading to the bulbs in places you won't be able to find or fix.
It's unlikely that it's one of the actual light bulbs, all light bulbs tend to go open instead of shorted, but you can check them too.

Tail lights wont come on keeps blowing fuse blows 10 amp 15 amp and even 5 amp fuses

put a 12 volt light bulb in place of the fuse. It will stay lit until you find the short circuit. Check tail and park light & side marker bulbs first.

How about if you just turn parking lights on, not headligths

Driverside tail light goes out when hit the brakes and turnsignal fuse keeps blowing out everytime i try to use it. so i have no turnsignal or back up lights because the fuse keeps blowing even if i use...

Two more possible places to look:
I have seen similar problem because of dirt and moisture accumulation in the trailer hitch wiring plug, Does your truck have a tailer hitch? I so, inspect under the wiring plug cover and clean with electric contact cleaner. Also, inspect where the plug wiring harness connect to the taillight/stop light harnesses for broken/exposed wiring that may be shorting out the fuse. This problem is usually seen only in after market installed wiring.
The second place that might have a short is in the turn signal switch on the steering column. The steering wheel and upper column would have to be disassembled to make repair. The wiring could be checked from below dash by removing the steering column wiring harness plug and checking qwirs with a ohm meter for closed short. It is a tedious task.

Tail lights not working when lights are turned on but brake lights work whats the problem

Hi there,

I would advise you to check the power distribution center (black plastic box under hood next to battery). I have a trailer lamp relay and fuse in mine. It's possible that would affect the tail lights.

Hope this helps. Best of luck.
