My 96 Gmc Sierra is blowing the fuse for the parking lights. What would cause this to happen?

Got a trailer connector ? Very common area for problems, especially if one was tapped into existing wiring with scotchlocks. Check for corrosion at the plug, primarily between the tail lights and ground. On a flat four connector it will be the brown and white wires, on the OE round connector it will be a little harder to see, however look for a pile of debris inside the connector especially with winter road conditions ( salt,sand etc.)

Thanks a lot! It happened to be the licence plate light wire grounding out on the trailer hitch receiver. I took the bed off recently to replace the fuel pump and I guess when I put it back on the wire was rerouted and started to touch the receiver. I wrapped it up and now it seems to be working out. Thanks again.
