hmmmmmmm

yea well last night i had to drive 177 miles with no tails. Now this morning I will check the fuses but last night i did remove and reinstall the tail light relay, however the problem is in the parking lights seeing as though the front oranges dont light either..

Where would the blown one be....

well its 6 am and im going to hit the road soon, dont need tails for now but tonight im hittin the home stretch.

Hmm, dunno...sounds like something you should probably get to a dealer ASAP to check out. Let us know what the verdict is.

problem solved

Well this morning I opened up the manual and found the page where it lists all the fuses out. Turned out that the inside fuse #14 third row down, second one in was blown. I changed it out the the lights finally turned on. I should have found it sooner but w/e.

My guess to the fuse cause was the aftermarket wirelass backup camera i put in, which was powered by the license plate light socket (I set it up so that it would display image constantly) the light socket put out 5w and i guess the camera overrode the system due to its being constantly on!

Thanks guys for the help.
