Isuzu: it blows fuses..tail lights..steering column

Customer Question

I have a 2002 NPR Isuzu and it blows fuses on the running lights and tail lights. Someone said it is most likley the curcuit board in the steering column is cracked. They say I may able to bypass it and use a manual switch if I find the wire in the column. Do you know what color wire is in the cloumn to the running and tail light?

Ok it should be a green wire with a white stripe.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

The green wire with the white strip is the right turn signal. I need the wire for the tail lights and upper running lights.
