The 20a fuse keeps blowing everytime I turn on the taillights.

SORTA DOES NOT SEEM TO BE A QUESTION?

RETURN WITH INFO LIKE

WHO? WHAT? WHEN? WHERE?

MAYBE WE CAN FIGURE OUT "WHY?"

THE MORE INFO PROVIDED TO US THE BETTER WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP

OK

THE QUESTION WAS IN THE TITLE WHICH I TOTALLY OVERLOOKED

REPLACE THE FUSES

UNPLUG BOTH TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLIES

TURN ON THE LIGHTS

(FUSE STILL GOOD?)

(YES?)

TURN OFF LIGHTS

NOW PLUG IN ONE TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY

TURN ON LIGHTS

(FUSE STILL GOOD?)

(YES?)

TURN OFF LIGHTS

PLUG IN OTHER TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY

TURN ON LIGHTS

SORTA GET THE PICTURE?

WHICHEVER STEP BLOWS THE FUSE, MEANS WE NEED TO INVESTIGATE THOSE WIRES/ THAT ASSEMBLY FOR THAT SIDE

COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS A BULB INSTALLED INCORRECTLY TO A SKINNED PLACE ON A WIRE TOUCHING GROUND SOMEWHERE, OR SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE WHOLE TAIL LIGHT ASSEMBLY ON ONE SIDE. MAYBE EVEN A PARK LIGHT PROBLEM UP FRONT!

THE "ELIMINATION PROCESS" I SUGGESTED, MIGHT LET US KNOW WHERE TO START LOOKING.

I HAVE ACCESS TO "PRODEMAND" (SORTA NEW TO ME) BEFORE, I HAD ACCESS TO "MITCHELL I" IN WHICH I HAD SORTA LEARNED HOW TO COPY THEIR DIAGRAMS AND POST THEM HERE ON 2CAR. "PRODEMAND" IS A BIT MORE COMPLICATED FOR ME, WHEN YOU REPORT YOUR FINDINGS, I'LL SEE IF I CAN GET YOU A WIRING DIAGRAM OF THAT SYSTEM. THIS MIGHT SHOW OTHER POSSIBLE THINGS THAT MIGHT COULD GLITCH
