Any of you guys had issues with rear brake lights and front side lights not functioning? I seem to be going through around 5x 10amp fuses a week... everytime i switch my lights on the fuse goes!

Is this a common problem?
cheers

Check for shorts.

After market lights or housings installed?

doesnt sound like a common problem.

anything specific seem to trigger the fuses blowing/lights not working?

Try a 15A. Maybe. If that goes then you have a problem.
