Tail Light Fuse on Isata 3

I blew the tail light fuse on my 2018 Isata 3 FW and cannot find where it is. I checked the manual and i don't see anything about the tail light circuit. I checked the fuses under the driver seat and dash. Does anyone know where the tail light fuse is on the Isata3 ?

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. I'm sure someone will have an answer for you. Try the search box at the upper right and see that doesn't provide you some answers.

If you look up under the unit near the bumper, around the middle...I think we fuse the Hopkins taillight combiner. Its the part that lets us run LED tail lights.

Help

Bruce,

I dont have any power to the tail lights. No brake, turn or tail. Would'nt there be a chassis fuse somewhere? I could not find anything in the rear bumper area that looked like a fuse.

Can you take a picture of the underside, around the middle up near the bumper? If it’s not a chassis fuse (I assume you have checked those) there is an inline fuse holder under the driver seat. There is a fuse on the Hopkins controller at the back end.

OP is asking where the chassis fuse is so my guess is he hasn't checked it.

Can't be of any help with fuse location, but I was wondering if your Isata 3 was affected by the tail light recall. Yours may be too new; my 2017 had to have work done to seal the rear lights to keep water from entering the and causing them to fail. Just thought that might be why a fuse blew.

Found it!

Thanks Bruce! I would never had found it w/o your help. Turns out there is a fuse under the fuse block under the drivers seat that was blown.
