As many of you know I'm trying to fix this botched up car by the previous owner. My wife recently let me know that my taillights are not lighting up. However, my brake lights are fine. I suspected the fuse to be blown and as I checked the kick panel, I saw the previous owner wrapped a wire around the fuse and simply plugged it in (did not use a fuse tap). I pulled the fuse and noticed it was blown. I didn't know what the wrapped wire was feeding but I decided to unwrap it off and just seal it with electrical tape. I put in a new fuse, and the fuse still blew. My question, what else could cause the fuse to blow? Thankfully, the rear lights don't seem to have been messed with. I think the wrapped wire was used to power something and cannot contribute to why I keep blowing the fuses... any ideas?
