My old motto is if it can get in then let it out ,drill a couple of holes one either side in the bottom of the light with a 2mm drill bit ,i suspect that the drain in the bottom of the light is blocked as most vehicles have a drain but its impossible to see as its between the plastic mouldings

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?

fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Tail lights keep blowing fuses why is this

The most likely thing is a short circuit on the rear lights.
If you are lucky, take off the rear lamp assemblies and look for corrosion. If they are corroded, you will probably find the corrosion is bridging across anothe circuit or straight to earth, resulting in a power surge which will blow the fuse.
If you are un-lucky, you will have to follow the wiring right back through the chassis possibly as far as the fuse board. Somewhere there will be a wire which has chaffed through and is shorting against the bodywork, or w wire will have been nipped by a screw or between 2 pieces of metal, and again causing a short circuit.
Good luck.

2005 Chevy Impala. Water leaking into rear tail light assemble. Mechanic suggested to put a silicon seal around the gasket area but having a problem removing the water currently in the assemble

Over the years, I've dealt with that problem on numerous vehicles. The only real way to prevent water from getting in is to replace the gaskets with new ones. To remove any water in the assembly, you need to remove it and leave it in the sun or in a gas stove oven that has a pilot light that's always on, overnight. (actually turning the stove on can melt the lens).
Rather than do all of that, I've found that if you park the car on a level surface and use a very small drill, make a hole in the bottom part of the lens where you see the water. Usually I find that by making two small holes, several inches apart, it permits any water that gets in to quickly drain out and as such does no damage. Leaving the holes open, they act as a vent and as any water inside now evaporates, as you drive the air exchanges and the moisture leaves with it.
One thing about drilling plastic....don't press very hard. Let the drill do the cutting or you can cause a crack. The actual size of the holes does not need to be larger than the lead in a pencil.

The left break light sensor comes on and off on the car indicator and will cause the three pack of lights to go out also this will happen with the right side of my 2003 bmw 325i with 45K

water in the rear brake light assemblies. common problem. remove the brake lite assembly------very very easy thing to do. there are three nuts holding it in from inside the trunk. once they're off the whole assembly just pops out. then it can be cleaned. usually the rubber gasket around the assembly leaks water into the lights and messes up the contacts where the bulbs screw into the circuit board.

Replacing drivers side low beam headlamp

To replace the headlights on your aurora, theres 2 silver looking screws on top of the headlight assembly under the hood. take those screws out(1 long and 1 short) and CAREFULLY pull forward on the entire light assembly. theres tabs on the far inside of the light assemblies that can be loosened with a flat head screwdriver. good luck.
