Hello, have you tried anything yet to fix this problem? do headlights, turns and brake lights work?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
is there a fuse for the running lights. we don't have the owners manual?
Expert:  Randall C replied 2 months ago.

Ok, so you have not checked fuses so,. yes there is, It is fuse F3 a 15 amp fuse in the inside fuse box, That fuse box is located along side of the center consol behind a cover, Swap out fuse F3 , very very good chance this is the problem, Here is a diagram of the fuse box showing F3

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
the f3 fuse was bad, I replaced it and it blew again.
Expert:  Randall C replied 2 months ago.

then this becomes a bit complex, you have a short somewhere. Were you towing? do you have a tow connector? if not to either? you then have to remove each bulb one at a time all around it and try and see if fuse no longer blows. Not possible for me to say where a short is. could be a bad bulb socket or even a bulb can short but this is more rare
