The fuse to the running lights will blow from time to time. i know i can put a fuse back in, and they will work only when the clock on my radio dims when i turn on the headlights.
Just like i know the fuse blows when the headlights are on and the clock is dimmed and then comes on full. i am checking bulbs, but I haven't found anything unusual and all bulbs light when problem is not occurring.

This all depends, if the fuse blows as soon as you put it in without stepping on the brake pedal then theres a dead short in the fuse box or the power wire going to the brake switch is shorting out, this 15amp fuse runs from the fuseox to brake light switch, so the short is between that but if it blow with brake pedal pushed then you said you dissconnect the rear brake light at fuse box and fuse still blows so the next step inwhich power is feed from this fuse is the following and you will need to unhook these components one at a time until short is gone. the next location is the the abs brake control module which is by the master cylinder area after that it goes to the cruise contorl servo also under the hood, then it goes to the shifter release solenoid which is very common problem, the wires melt or short out in that area, and next it goes to computer which i dont think is the problem and from there it feeds the rear lights and third brake light. hope this helps, good day.
first check two fuse box's one in the engines compartment and one underneath the drivers side left of the brake pad is at you should to see if there are any fuses that are blown but if you have a fuse blown most likely that there is a short some where with some of the wires that causing this to happen to blow the fuse so if you know how to use a multimeter that you can test the fuse that is bad if any with the two leads from the multimeter to see if the current is jumping because of a short two contacts inside where that fuse was.
mcdevito75 here, I would try to isolate the problem with the fuse blowing, ---- sit in the car and step on the brake, without the car running see if the fuse blows, the just put the key to on not strat just on see if the fuse is blow, if it is you may have a problem under the dash, if not, now with the key just on no start, step on the brake see if that fuse is blow, if so you may have a problem at the brake light switch under the dash or at the brake lights themselves at the back of your car, a bad ground, loose or broken wire, inspect if you can. The hard or no starting after you drive for a while could be related or a problem with the ignition coils or ignition module. In any event have your local auto re[pair shop check these items out for you, a short could cause real problems in your car.
my 1993 range rover will not start when i turn the ignition, no dash lights, can not put it in gear, no power to the windows or seats. It has not shown any signs but it started and cut off and now nothing. The horn blows, head kights come on, the alarm engages when i lock with remote. Do fuses or the ignition control this? What could it be????????
It's kind of strange that all 3 bulbs would blow at the same time.
Check the fuse, which is on the side of the dash when you open the driver door, or it could be the brake light switch, which is under the dash, near top and on back side of brake pedal, it might be stuck, or bad.
