tail lights wont work. i have brake lights and turn signals. i found that the fuse was no good and replaced it with the same good one. the tail lights came one but when i put it in drive and went about 20 feet the tail lights stopped working again. checked the fuse and it was blown. where would this problem most likely be located? all bulbs and elliments are ok and good condition

    Do you have a trailer wiring harness on this vehicle? Sometimes you may find a short in that system.

    You could also have a problem with the headlight switch and / or wiring connector shorting out.
