This is an easy solution with potentially hours of looking. You have a short in a wire somewhere along the line. It could be from brake light to brake light or the wiring to the fuse panel itself. Another place to check is at the socket itself. Grab a meter and start eliminating.

Fuse pops on taillights and brake lights


My information shows, the 4th. fuse is 8A for Turn signals, Tail lights, Heated mirrors:
The 5th. is 16A for Brake lights, Shiftlock, ABS.
You should check carefully to see which fuse is blowing and what circuits it controls.
You are then able to trace those circuits to locate the short.

1994 plymouth acclaim no brake lites as soon as i put in a new fuse it instantly pops


So, open the trunk of the car and see if you have a couple of plastic panels covering the taillights on each side, and an access panel to the extra brake light in the back window. That access may be either inside the car or from inside the trunk.
Remove the panels and remove the brake light bulbs. If you don't know which ones they are, take 'em all out, make yourself a map and tell yourself where each one came from, and set those aside.
Now replace that fuse again, and press the brake pedal. If the fuse blows, and you don't even have any brake light bulbs in, you have a short in the wiring somewhere.
This might be from an earlier car accident where some wire insulation has rubbed off, or from someone messing with the wires, like when someone adds a trailer wiring harness to the rear.
Let's pretend the fuse doesn't blow.
Now, put back one bulb at a time, and each time press the brake pedal to see if that was the offending bulb.
This should help you pinpoint the problem.

Brake light fuse keeps blowing and no brake lights


you have a short somewhere in the brake wiring, you will need a multimeter and knowledge on how to use it to find the short, you can open the trunk, remove the interior pieces to gain access to the wiring to see if it is apparent to the eye where the damage is you might luck out

1997 Buick Lesabre parking lights fuse keeps popping. I put a new fuse in and soon (sometimes seconds, sometimes a day), the fuse blows. Brake lights, head lights, reverse lights are OK. Is it most likely...


If the bulb is of too much wattage maybe but is more likely the wiring is grounding to the frame at some point. You are of course, using the proper fuse....
