    Try a different brand LED. Technically, you should keep your fuse at 15amps. The problem is your bulbs.

    Try going back to your OEM bulbs to make sure everything works properly and that you haven’t messed something else up before moving/resetting into the new bulbs.

    A little of this and a little of that.

    I had the same problem. I had to end up using VLEDs LED stop lights and BAM! Worked just like it should. Look 'em up.

    According to the eBay listing, you may see that if you install a "standard" base bulb in a "CK" socket. I searched on this forum and it appears that 2017 might use the CK socket. Below is a copy/paste from the eBay listing you linked to.

    PLEASE NOTE: IF OU PLACE A STANDARD BASE BULB INTO A CK SOCKET, THE BULB WILL LOOK DIM, AND MAY POP THE ASSOCIATED FUSE, AS WELL AS BURN OUT IN A COUPLE OF DAYS SO IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED.

    Thanks Guys. You Tundras are very responsive. I love it.
    I restored the stock bulbs and it worked.no more fuse popping.. The LED was causing the short circuit and the plastic around the contacts was already melting.If I had left it there a couple of days I would have had to replace the whole socket.
    Am now looking for another brand of LEDs.
    Any suggestions? Please send links as well.

    For 2017, stop/tail/side marker bulb is 3157KX. I'm actually using a different JDM in that application with no problems. If my current LEDs go south, I recommend and will use these...same specs as the JDM and at half the price:

    Vleds is the way to go. A little pricey but, outstanding quality.

    Been using Profile leds in my brake lights for 1.5 years now in my 18’. Zero issues. 18’ trucks are no longer CK sockets. You probably have the wrong bulb.
