    Possibly a short in your taillight wiring? I had a similar problem where my gauge cluster went out and I believe it was my brake lights too. I had hooked up these reverse lights and the wires to them fell on the exhaust and melted together and once I fixed the wiring my fuses stopped blowing.

    The gauge would only light up for me, the speedo, tach and odo would not work. I'm pretty sure my reverse lights wouldn't come on either. The fuse that kept blowing was in the cab and I'm pretty sure it was a 15A fuse. GL finding the fix man hopefully it's something simple and easy.
