I keep blowing tail lights and fuses when I shift car out of park. I have change brake switch on pedal a couple of times and the bulb socket. I figured something shorted out somewhere, but can't seem to find it. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a transmission position sensor that is shorted out. Here are the diagrams and instructions on how to change it out below. Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.
