I checked my owners manual and it guided me to the blue 15 amp fuse I switched it and it blew again then I saw the wires hanging and I assumed it was because of them

First thing to do would be find where the wire went to,i think it may go to your fuse panel if it is close to it,

But first check the for fire,meaning power before you hook them to anything.

I found the issue loose wire was stuck on some metal go figure! Thank you for helping me out man!

    I turn on the lights and the tail lights don't come on. Everything else works, even the brake lights. What could be the problem? There is no specific "tail light" fuse apparent in the fuse box.
