1 - are you SURE theyre the right bulbs! - if theyre too bright they can blow the fuse, if theyre the wrong type of bulb they will blow the fuse.. best get the bulbs direct from ford, they are always in stock, so are the proper fuses.
2 - theres a center brakelight isnt there? check this bulb too for proper wattage and size/shape
Other than that maybe the wiring in the boot is damaged and shorting?? -----
Leave feedback good or bad.

My gearshift doesnt work and my #42 stomp lamp fuse keeps blowing


Put a taillight bulb in place of the fuse and disconnect things till the light goes out to find a short. Or-you can buy fuses that light up when blown.

02 Focus Wagon - Rear tail light/brake light keeps blowing bulbs. Bulb is white when removed, replacement bulb last about a week, then blows again. Any idea what the problem may be.


If a bulb blows white the gas mix in the globe is incorrect and you probably got hold of a bad batch of globes from your supplier. Try buying your bulbs from another source and see if that works out better.

Blows fuses when parking lights are turned on. Headlights work fine even running lights.


If it only happens when you turn the switchto the parking lights then it is most likely the swich that is the problem. Light swich failure appears to be a common fault with fords
