Asked by Apr 25, 2018 at 05:18 AM about the 2015 Kia Optima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It was 4weeks earlier that it first happened. Autohold and
ESC lights appeared in yellow... Took a lot of tinkering for
the DEALER to find out it was the blown fuse of stoplight
causing the problem. (Brake lights didn't work) Now the
problem is; the same fuse keeps blowing randomly and i
dont know WHY? or What to do? Its the 3rd time im
changing the fuse since then
My tail light is the oem LED

If the fuse keeps blowing, this is a sign of a short somewhere in the circuit line. I would take it back to the dealer, they did the repair and had to give you a warranty on the job.
