    Let's start off with my Tacoma has reverse lights under the bumper, my wife hit a fence and broke one light. A couple of days after, the battery went low and the SRS warning light on, then my turn signals stop working and the reverse light stop working as well, along with the automatic shift was locked at park. I jumped the battery and it has power now. I also changed the fuse IG1 10A and the turn signals, reverse and shift was unlocked and worked well. As soon as I shift from park to reverse, I can hear the fuse go out. So that means I got a short somewhere in the back, correct? After I overrode the shift lock to keep driving then my engine light came on. Not sure what to do??? Mileage is 75,350. and NO warranty. Any ideas?

    Yeah, you've got a short. If it is causing your ground to float, you're going to get lots of other electrical weirdness until you get it fixed.

    I'd start with the back bumper and look for a pinched or worn wire.

    Yes, you definitely have a short back there. Disconnect the battery, repair the short, reconnect the battery. That will clear the CEL. The CEL and SRS light are more than likely the result of the short. Fixing it will probably eliminate them. The IG1 fuse sends power to a lot of different systems and lose of power will cause different CEL's to be thrown.

    Keep it simple for now.
