Definitely a short in the system. You need to find where a bare wire is touching the earth (any metal point on the car). Your brake lights work because they are on a different circuit to the tail lights. It is common for things like the cigarette lighter and dash lights to also run off this circuit - Hopefully the lid of the fuse box will tell you if they run of the same circuit. I would start by disconnecting the tail lights and removing the interior light (cigarette lighter also if on same circuit) make sure the wires are not touching any metal part of the car and also check their condition (no shorts in the plugs themselves wires touching). Test with a fuse and if it blows it is in the wiring between the fuse box and the lights. Unfortunately if the fuse blows still with these things disconnected you at at a point of tracking down the short. You could try a larger fuse and check for a warm wire but this can be problematic as it can melt the plastic (I have done that before - I did find the problem wire quickly but then had to re-run a new one). The good news if the fuse stays in tact with the things disconnected you have can connect one by one till the fuse blows and that is where your problem is - fix or replace.

You have a short in this circuit, it must be repaired before you stick that fuse in. a wiring diagram is how you can trace that circuit, testing each wire for continuity, or a short, is the only way to find your problem.

All the lights in the rear is out on my le sabre


check the fuse and if it is ok then check the brake light switch for power if it has power you need to get a jumper wire and check the rear light to see if they function if so then the switch is bad ,but make certain it is the brake lamps and not the driving lamps.
