I noticed the other day when I pushed the remote lock that the back-up lights did not light up. I checked the fuse (10A) and it was blown - I replaced it and tried it again - the backup light flashed for a second when I pushed "lock" and then the fuse was blown again. Has anyone else had an issue with this? I noticed this 2 days after I was playing around with a loose connection on the auto dimming rear view mirror - could there be any coincidence between the two? Thanks

a fuse that keeps blowing indicates either a direct short in the circuit or an overload of the circuit, where is hard to say without tracing it down.

Does anyone know if there a reverse light switch on the transmission? Could this possibly be the problem?

If you shift into reverse, does it also blow the circuit?
