    I have a 2009 Toyota Tacoma double cab. My taillights are not working, the front marker lights are not working, the 4 way flashers blink 1 time then nothing when I turn them on. I checked the fuses under hood, they are all good. I need help please! I work nights and need them tonight to drive to work.

    have you done any offroading lately? make sure the hitch wiring plug below your bumper isnt damaged. If the prongs in the plug are touching it will make your lights do weird things

    You say you checked all the fuses under the hood and they are good. Double check your owners manual because there may be another fuse box you need to check.

    Sometimes fuses (especially the mini plastic ones) may look good but are bad. Are you checking them with a meter??

    Checked trailer, plug it is ok. The battery is good, and I checked the fuses with a meter.

    Did you check the fuses behind the coin holder, to the left of the steering wheel in cab?

    If you didn't check these, then start with the IG1 fuse.

    I just checked there the fuse is blown. I replaced it and it blew again so I am guessing bad ground or short somewhere.

    I didn't think a bad bulb could consistently blow a fuse...sounds to me like a short in the wiring somewhere.

    If a bulb is working, then it blows - it can blow the fuse. But after the bulb has blown and the fuse is replaced, it shouldn't continue to blow the fuse should it?

    It was broken tail light wire on trailer harness just where it comes out of the tail light.
