Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The only reason a fuse would blow is because of excessive current flow. The tailight bulb by the very nature of its design could not internally short and therefore could not cause the fuse to blow. Initial possibilities then are:

  • corroded / rusted bulb socket;
  • pinched wire / harness specially under the seat rearwards.

Postback results of checks on above items.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

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.

Where is tail light fuse for Chevy Malibu 2003?


The fuse for the horn can not make it blow.only a bad horn switch/button can do that.The tail light fuse should be marked in the fuse panel.If you have the vehicle manual you can most likely find it in there.

My tail lights are out on my accord and I replace the fuse and then it burns out again


something is shorting out and blowing the fuse. remove both tail light bulbs then change fuse and turn on lights. if fuse does not blow then try new bulbs in tail lights to see if that works. If fuse blows without lights in tail lights then you might have to look at front lights as well since they are all on same fuse i believe.

Blowing fuses for my tail lights


Hi, Tail lights are probably the most common blowing problem. The tail lights are handed and shouldn't blow together ie , Lhs or Rhs.High or your check list should be Number plate wiring (it's more exposed and prone to damage, Secondly try the hinge areas where the cableing leaves the body and enters the boot lid.
On rare occasions it can be something you've previously tampered with ; ie cigarette lighter socket , front lamp bulb holder, even a towing socket if fitted etc . Finally a bad earth connection will not blow fuses unless the wire is completely detached and floating around the lamp cluster. Good Luck

Tail light fuse blowing


If it has a towing package harness,it might be in it.Remove all the tail light bulbs,and put a new fuse in to see if the fuse will blow.If it does,check the head light switch ,and the dimmer for the dash lights for a short.If the fuse does not blow,with all the bulbs out then look for a bad light socket shoring ,out,by putting one bulb in at a time,and when the fuse blows,that will be the socket that is bad.

96 dodge ram 2500 tail lights and instrument panel lights quit working at the same time all other lights work help please!!!


Check your tail light fuse, on the dodge ram the dash lights and tail lights use the same fuse so if the tail light fuse blows your dash lights will go out to alert you of no tail lights.

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.
