Customer Question
Brake fuse keeps blowing...

Brake fuse keeps blowing when I press on the pedal, the trailer harness controller fuse blew and I have disconnected the controller from the brake light

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Yesterday stopped at the store came out and my 2007 Lexus rx350 wouldn't start. I recently replaced the battery. turned out it was bad and I replaced it. car started fine but now all of the brake indicator lights are on and the car was locked in park. tries to get a code but reading was err. checked fuses found that brake 10amp blown replaced it blew again. there seems to be a lot of issues with trailer hitches. I had it installed 2 years ago. I checked the wires and didn't see any issues.
