Re: fog light fuse keeps blowing
Check the fog lights for water intrusion, this will cause a short, also look at the wiring where it goes to the fog lights, look for worn wires where it runs through the body of the car, I know the short is one of these things, have seen it before.

you may have to replace a circuit breaker (30amp ) or more, your blower motor may be part of the ignition system, it takes alot to blow a CB, but maybe thats what you did. under the hood , near battery, find the box that houses all or most of the CB'S. IT SHOULD BE clearly marked, which CB is for each circuit. look for the ignition circuit, replace it, also check if theres one for blower motor, this is probably a fuse only @ fuse box inside the car. see how this works , and let a qualified mech., wire up your fog lights, good luck
Obviously a short somewhere. Check sockets for corrosion, rust etc where current could be traveling across, as well as take a look at wiring into rear if you can get to it. One other thing you could try to isolate, would be to try one bulb in at a time, perhaps one will cause fuse to blow & other won't, which will give you a reference point to start looking.
Re check the connections, it sounds like you have a short in the Wireing harness. If you park you car where there are lot's of small animals link mice, squirels ect. They come out this time of the season looking for things to chew on and make a home out of.
Sorry for the shot in the dark but it does happen and if you do park your car where there are lots of small animals. Fabric sofener's in the car like under the seat keep's them away.
Good luck and hop this helps
hi mate if you keep blowing fuses disconnect your front fog lights and try again if your dash lights work then a bulb has failed and gone to earth if it still blows the fuse disconnect the dahs pod (clocks) and reconect the fog lights if it does not blow the fuse the it probably is the dash pod or something associated with the pod hope it helps
check the wiring too the tailgate it very common for it to break up and tuch other wires, also check trailer socket wiring,if it has one it will be a black wire and a brown one for the side lights.Good luck Davelee
it sounds like the wiring is all wrong as if its a bad earth on the car after he wired the fog lights maybe you should check and see if there is any wires hanging down underneath the bonnet that have been stripped back or see if there is and loose wires on the back of your lights or fuse board if you dont find any problems there take out the radio in the car i find that most problems to do with bad wiring or electrical problems in cars is to do with bad wiring on a radio i.e not having been installed proberly. hopes this helps
check fuse #7 in the fuse block inside the vehicle and fuse #25 in the fuse block under the hood...more than likely you blew one of these fuses when it sparked. as for the drivers side being inop once you replace the blown fuse if you have a test light check for voltage at the bulb connector...the light assembly itself may be bad
