2005 Toyota Land Cruiser Question: fuse for side lights keeps blowing

Yes, the fuse is overheating and melting, protecting the electrical system. Probably the fuse and circuit is not rated for the load of the spotlights. I don't know what the draw if the spotlights is, but I think you'd be well off to use a relay controlled, fused auxiliary circuit. Don't put a fuse in that has a higher rating than was originally installed or you'll melt your wiring.
