New light/dimmer switch put in but still have same problem, please see below.

(1999 Ford Taurus)
in San Francisco, CA on May 28, 2015
Recently (March 2015) with the headlights on the rear tail lights won't work. I replace a 15 amp fuse under the hood and it's ok for a while. Then a few weeks later while headlights are on, same problem again, the tail lights aren't working. I took it to a mechanic in San Francisco, but the fuse still keeps blowing about every 2 weeks or so. I only drive the car on the weekends about 400 miles per month.

Check for ANY sign of moisture in taillight assemblies.

Thanks. I've had a mechanic take apart/check the tail light assembly.

You need to have that circuit checked. Stop putting fuses in until you find the problem.

Thanks, I've already taken it to a mechanic in San Francisco who checked the circuit and rear light assembly.
