May sure the ground is good and test the brake light switch on the brake pedal it self and if you have the truck wire to pull a trailer check out these wire also.

My tail lights are out on my accord and I replace the fuse and then it burns out again

something is shorting out and blowing the fuse. remove both tail light bulbs then change fuse and turn on lights. if fuse does not blow then try new bulbs in tail lights to see if that works. If fuse blows without lights in tail lights then you might have to look at front lights as well since they are all on same fuse i believe.

I have a 98 Camry and was having problems with tail lights and fuses. I kept blowing a fuse which was making my tail lights not work. I tried paying very close attention to when they would be working and all the sudden not be working. I know it sounded funny, but I told my mechanic that it seemed if I used my trunk, my fuse would blow. Come to find out, the wire was touching the hinges of my trunk. So when I popped my trunk and closed it, it blew my fuse every time.

No brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park

I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.
