The problem is the "turn signal cancel unit". It's located behind the front fuse panel. The way I fixed mine was to remove the box and pull it apart. Inside you will notice a circuit board. On one of the corners there will be three diodes (D1, DZ1, D2). The one in the center will most likely be burnt. I simply snipped the burned diode off of the board. Once I hooked it up, I had tail light function and the trouble light went off. Fuse didn't blow and everything is functioning properly. The actual turn signal cancel won't work but that didn't bother me, it didn't work previously (probably due to that same diode).

WHAT CAUSES THE TAIL LIGHTS AND DASHLIGHTS TO GO OUT ON 1983 TOYOTA TRUCK?


GOOD ADVISE--I ALSO LEARNED THAT THERE MAY BE FUSES IN UNDER THE HOOD ALSO. FOUND OUT TODAY THAT IF THE DOME LIGHT DON'T WORK THEN IT'S FUSE COULD BE BLOWN AND HINDER THE CIRCUIT TOO. I'M NOT GOOD ON VOLTAGE READING , BUT DO HAVE A TEST LIGHT. IF NO FIRE AT THE COMMON TAIL LIGT-DASH LIGHT FUSE , THEN THAT MIGHT NARROW IT DOWN. I HAD THE SAME TROUBLE IN MY 1990 FORD XLT LARIAT AND WAS BLOWING THE TAILLIGHT FUSE. IT WAS A SHORT IN THE EXTERNAL TRAILER KIT HARNESS WHICH CAUSED FUSES TO BLOW REGUARLY. WHERE IS RELAY FOR TAILIGHTS AND OTHER FUSES UNDER THE HOOD??

I have a short somewhere in the car, the taillight fuse blows, I have checked for shorts in the taillights and replaced the taillights, then I checked the headlights, all were good and I couldnt find the...


Take rear lamps out of their sockets and turn on power if fuse still blows more than likely its a wire. Did you check the TAG LIGHTS, and side marker lights?

No taillights and headlights blow.


No taillights and the headligts blow the fuse when turn on would indicate that there is a wire failure with the tail lights and when the headlights, being on the same circuit, are turned on, the fuse blows because there is a short in the tail light wiring.
Good luck

No taillights, no dash backlighting, no headlights-on chime; all other lights okay


The taillights are commonly connected to the dash light circuit ( so you can be aware when they do not work ).
Start with the fuse box. Read carefully for the correct fuse to change. Sometimes they have a strange name associated with them. Turn the lights off before you change the fuse otherwise they may blow even if the circuit is OK. If it blows again you need to look further to find a shorted wire. ( Most likely in the boot, near the taillights, a wire has been crushed or damaged.

Keep blowing fuse for rear taillights and dashboard lights


Sounds like loose wires. Had a similar problem with my 03 Durango. Kept blowing fuses when I put them in. Came to find out my trailer wiring harness had fried and was shorting out.
