It's blowing the fuse because there is a short somewhere in the circuit. Your inspection just hasn't found it yet. Look for bare spots on the wiring; places where the wire might be pressed against metal (especially sharp edges); damaged connectors; etc.

Interior light fuse blows

Sounds like something is making a short circuit somewhere. First, check in each light socket to make sure there is nothing loose in them and that nothing is touching the body of the car. If that doesn't do it, one of the wires going to one of the sockets could be cut, pinched or rubbing against something enough to wear through the insulation. That is a little harder to check as it requires pulling the headliner, door panels and anything else that is hiding the wires.

any half *** wiring job could do a number of things from no lights to no radio if its half *** then its not worth a hoot i would have the trailer brake removed unless you plan on using it then i would have a shop redo it trailer brakes when half *** installed can cause problems i prefer a whole *** job rather then a half *** job any day.

Get yourself an ohm meter or just a regular test light, start from there, check wires to fuse box and behind gauges and so forth, if the light don't light up, most likely is a break in the wire, can also be an electrical switch or another possible fuse

1992 acura integra tail light fuse keeps blowing

it sounds like the wiring is all wrong as if its a bad earth on the car after he wired the fog lights maybe you should check and see if there is any wires hanging down underneath the bonnet that have been stripped back or see if there is and loose wires on the back of your lights or fuse board if you dont find any problems there take out the radio in the car i find that most problems to do with bad wiring or electrical problems in cars is to do with bad wiring on a radio i.e not having been installed proberly. hopes this helps

1998 GMC Sierra Signal Fuse Blowing

it seems you have a short in either one of the lights or interlock. all are connected to the same fuse. trace the wiring from the fuse box back to the component. Using a test light test in between the wires. check for any obvious breaks in the wiring.
