Its just electrics, and ohms laws..
if the right fuse is there, it burns out for one reason, a short.
(excessive current) and prevents fire, the battery can supply 500 amps
easy and you'd not want to short that, ever.
first thing, is to post the name of the fuse, they all have names.
rule 2, most fuses can have 20 loads, not just the named, load on fuse.
so, only schematic of the system shows ALL loads.
no named fuse, no joy, or post a photo to it with finger pointing, >>> here.

the car came with an opertators guide, in the glove box and all guides
name the fuses, if lost get one.
here it is for free.

and once the name of fuse is know , the full scematic is
DIY, discounted here..... (i make nothing saying that...)

to find a short we use an ammeter, and a circuit breaker
to replace fuse that burns out.
then we drop loads off this buss until the short, goes byebye.
thats it.
if it dont go way, then the harness is shorted, (ask how to find if so)

Check the prones inside the connector that you plug into the brake light module. You may have to squeeze, wiggle, tilt each one to see which one is not connecting all that good. I know it may sound confusing. I tried to explain the best of I could.

Passenger side head light not work, Battery drain

jay: There are two fuses for the headlights. make sure you have checked both. The fuses are located in the engine compartment in the black box and they are 15 amps each. When you say you checked the bulb, did you try another bulb in it's place? Did you check to make sure you have solid ground connections?

In terms of the electrical draw: The first thing I would check is the alternator. One way you can check sometimes if the draw is strong enough. Get a hacksaw blade or something similar in size and thickness. like a small metal ruler. With the battery connected and the key removed from the ignition, place the blade flat on the front of the alternator pulley. If it sticks or if you feel a small amount of magnetic pull, the alternator has a short and is creating the draw.
Outside of that you would need an amp meter which you could put between the battery cable and the battery terminal to measure the draw. From there you could start pulling fuses one by one until you notice a drop on the meter. Typically a few tenths of an amp draw is normal because you have certain components which use very small amounts of current to maintain memory such as your radio.
Let me know how you make out. I'll be more than willing to further assist you if you need it.
