Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is a system automated prompt , not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Try pulling trailer tow relay 1 and seeing if it still blows, also do you have a multimeter to do some testing?

hows the relay removal going?

Ask Your Own Car Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I removed both trailer tow relays 1 & 2, pulled the front markers, pulled the 30a & 10a trailer tow fuses and disconnected the trailer brake control harness. Still blowing #37 fuse.
Auto Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

ok next we will need to pull the fuse and all the bulbs on the circuit and trace the short to ground out, you can do that few ways, one using a multi meter following the wires until you find the rub spot 2 is a circuit tracer you can get anywhere but harbor freight has the cheapest one
