Is the fuse a 15 or higher, if so you probably have a dead short in the wiring, like the positive wire is touching metal somewhere on the body or chassis

My2004 Hyundai Santa Fe blows the fuse to the right tail light

if the fuse blows right away when you turn the lights on or blows as soon as you put the key in and turn my car on, then you may have a dead short in the circuit.

Turn signal is blowing fuse as soon as I turn on signal.

the problem may be in the flasher control unit
It is a short but not all shorts are dead shorts although you now have a dead short
fuses blow from excessive current draw so if you have a fault where the wire is rubbing through on an edge of material, the current flow is just enough in some circumstances to blow the fuse ( high humidity , moisture, one of the fine copper wires that make up the wire may be touching across a power supply to ground etc)
or the wires move from vibration and contact is lost but regained when the conditions alter
you are right when you say the dealer put in a new fuse on it as there is nothing to tighten , but by putting in a new fuse they probable moved the problem enough so that it went away for a period
I can understand your reluctance to used the dealer again as most dealers do not employ fully qualified auto electricians and the problems they encounter are fixed by parts replacement
I would find an accredited auto electrician that has a lot of experience on your make of vehicle as finding electrical faults needs heaps of experience
always get a quote as time is of the essence when chasing a fault

Fuse pops on taillights and brake lights

My information shows, the 4th. fuse is 8A for Turn signals, Tail lights, Heated mirrors:
The 5th. is 16A for Brake lights, Shiftlock, ABS.
You should check carefully to see which fuse is blowing and what circuits it controls.
You are then able to trace those circuits to locate the short.

Have a 2001 road king as soon as I turn on the ignition switch the 15A fuse for the horn turn signals brake light front fender marker light speedometer blows any help would be greatly appreciated I didn't...

you have a hot wire grounding out somewhere do the simple things first you may need a couple of fuses but it save you alot so you do not have to take it somewhere to get fixed , start with the horn ,usally it would be the fender light or brake light do them first , disconnect it then put the fuse back in and see if it blows , then so on to save some fuses take the bulbs out of the turn signals and put one back in at a time to see if it blows this is the best way and easiest way to find your short ,

1989 honda accord headlight fuse blows as soon as replaced

you more than likely have a shorted wire in the headlight harness... you will have to check the wiring from the headlight bulbs to see if it has been pinched up against a sharp metal edge causing a grounded wire, or maybe the harness was crushed by an improper headlight installation.

Alternator fuse blows

Kevin, chances are that when the new alternator was put on. The wires were put too close to something either hot or that it can rub on. If you do not find that this is the problem then return the alternator to the store and have it tested for internal problems. Bad Alternator can do this. Good luck
