The multifunction switch has a short in it. Unplug it and the fuses should not blow. If this is the case, replace the switch. But first inspect the wiring going to it

1987 ford ranger turn signals keep blowing fuses. have changed flasher fuse and switch on column. just keeps blowing?

first thing i guess to understand what is going on here ,is a little back to basics on how turnsignals work , first item you have is power fuse then it's off to flasher module than it goes to the turnsignal switch on colum ,of course anywhere on it way to there the power could got to ground and cause the fuse to trip, now the power depending on Left or right selection , is directed to lights on both front and back of truck,thankfully rangers don't have em on the side) now any place in this pathway the wire could go to ground and blow the fuse, now to troubleshoot and narrow down the area that fault is located , (1) replace fuse with correct size and ck for proper fit in fusebox and start and operate truck for a few minutes DO not use turnsignals, ck fuse is it still good if so go to step 2 if not stop and ck wire conditions in steering colum and switch(2) start truck and try right hand turn signal only verify lights working ,Ok yes/no if not replace fuse and try left side same way, Ok yes /no if right or left side only blows fuses take ALL bulbS OUT of lights and try again , if fuse still blows then look for wire fault on that side of truck if fuse is still good then look carefull at light bulb sockets for rust and powered corrosion (ill bet an 87 has some ) you may need to replace bulb sockets , they do sell em in autoparts stores .

Driverside tail light goes out when hit the brakes and turnsignal fuse keeps blowing out everytime i try to use it. so i have no turnsignal or back up lights because the fuse keeps blowing even if i use...

Two more possible places to look:
I have seen similar problem because of dirt and moisture accumulation in the trailer hitch wiring plug, Does your truck have a tailer hitch? I so, inspect under the wiring plug cover and clean with electric contact cleaner. Also, inspect where the plug wiring harness connect to the taillight/stop light harnesses for broken/exposed wiring that may be shorting out the fuse. This problem is usually seen only in after market installed wiring.
The second place that might have a short is in the turn signal switch on the steering column. The steering wheel and upper column would have to be disassembled to make repair. The wiring could be checked from below dash by removing the steering column wiring harness plug and checking qwirs with a ohm meter for closed short. It is a tedious task.

Tail,brake,turn,dash,hazard lights keep blowing fuses

With the exception of the dash light, everything else runs thru the turnsignal switch. I would start there.

I have a 1992 Buick La Sabre Custom. My brake lights are not working but taillights, turn signals and hazard lights do work. Switch ok. fuse ok. ????????

if your fuse is good. and you have power at the brake light switch and when you hit the brakes you have power coming out the otherside of brake light switch/which would be the white wire/ check that the white wire is sending power up the turn signal switch. if theres power there and your turnsignals work? im afraid that your turnsignal switch is bad rare but it has been known to happen.

My brake light fuse continues to blow out, the rest of the tail light, turnsignals, tail light, work fine, it is just the brake light.

There is a short in the brake light circuit, the 'live' wire is earthing somewhere,you will have to trace tht wire and rectify.

Brake lights/tail lights won't work

tail light fuse and brake light fuse, and they are marked, if they are good then you have a bad light switch or a bad turnsignal switch assembly harness.
