    My truck is a 2011 Double Cab, Long Bed 4x4 TRD bought in April 2011.

    I discovered last night that my running tail lights do not work after being pulled over.

    I tried trouble shooting the problem this morning and discovered the number 3 fuse in the interior fuse box was blown and every new fuse (10A #3) blew as I turned on my lights.

    I found that there seemed to be a short somewhere in the electrical system after using a multi-meter and disconnecting the stop brake light switch behind the brake pedal.

    Has anyone experienced a similar problem? How did you fix it?
