Question about Mazda Protege
After seeing a similar post, I tried finding the short that keeps causing my 15A tail fuse to keep blowing out. I removed all of the rear light bulbs and installed a new fuse, and sure enough it popped. What else could be causing the short and how can I possibly fix it?

Took it to the shop. The side marker lights were missing on my son's car. The wiring loops from the side marker lights to the tail lights. As the wires were touching in the front, they shorted out the tail lights. Capped the wires, problem solved!
PS: ordered side marker lights, too.

You have a ground issue.Current from another circuit is running through the lights to get to ground. this causes them to burn out quickly.You need to do a real detailed visual check.A good component wiring diagram and component locator is a requirement here.

your lights are grounding out some where you will have to check for a dead short in the wiring use a volt meter in the resitance mode and track through you power side of the lights untill you find your dead short, start at the back and work your way to the fuse box pull the fuse and follow the wire. there is a short in it it will just take some time going through look for worn coating, cracks, or melted.
good luck & and happy hunting

sounds like a short
look at wires under dash
then look at te wires coming through the fire wall
check lighter too it might have a coin stuck in it as it will cause a short too
