Question about 1994 Plymouth Acclaim
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.

I did it twice and if you are fairly skilled it will take 4-6 hours, if you have the V6.
Here is the steps:
1. Move car to a place that can support a jack and engine stand.
2. Disconnect battery
3. Loosen wheel lugs on passenger side front tire
4. Jack car on passenger side to lift wheel of the ground
5. Put a block under the oil pan to support the engine
6. Block car frame on left side
7. Remove left front tire
8. Remove v-belt
9. Remove idler pulley
10. Remove and support air conditioner compressor
11. Remove PS pump if you have one
12. Remove motor mount on left side and vacuum / gas connections connected to mount ( mark bolts as to locations )
13. Remove metal plate on engine ( mark bolts as before )
Tricky bolts are on the PS pump (Remove them through PS pulley holes)
14. Remove 3 plastic covers over timing belt ( mark bolts as before )
15. Note timing marks on overhead cams and crank.If none, make some.
16. Ease pressure off timing belt tensioner
17. Remove belt and replace with new. Trick here is to make sure you get the belt notches lined up. Head cams will shift when you remove the old belt. Do not tighten the belt tensioner fully or it will not perform as designed, it should be snug but be able to move.
END... replace part is backward order and drive away !!!
