1994 plymouth acclaim no brake lites as soon as i put in a new fuse it instantly pops

So, open the trunk of the car and see if you have a couple of plastic panels covering the taillights on each side, and an access panel to the extra brake light in the back window. That access may be either inside the car or from inside the trunk.
Remove the panels and remove the brake light bulbs. If you don't know which ones they are, take 'em all out, make yourself a map and tell yourself where each one came from, and set those aside.
Now replace that fuse again, and press the brake pedal. If the fuse blows, and you don't even have any brake light bulbs in, you have a short in the wiring somewhere.
This might be from an earlier car accident where some wire insulation has rubbed off, or from someone messing with the wires, like when someone adds a trailer wiring harness to the rear.
Let's pretend the fuse doesn't blow.
Now, put back one bulb at a time, and each time press the brake pedal to see if that was the offending bulb.
This should help you pinpoint the problem.

Brake light fuse keeps blowing and no brake lights

you have a short somewhere in the brake wiring, you will need a multimeter and knowledge on how to use it to find the short, you can open the trunk, remove the interior pieces to gain access to the wiring to see if it is apparent to the eye where the damage is you might luck out

My brake light over the trunk will not work, was wondering where the fuse panels are?And if it could be a fuse??

This light works off a power inveror which is at fault. The light consist of light emitting diodes which take alot of voltage to illuminate these diodes. The invertor is located inside the trunk and they cost well over $160

My daughter's 2003 Spyder needs the brake light bulb replaced. She is at college about 3 hours away and I cannot help describe what she needs to do to get the old one out and the new one in. Please help....

i dont own an eclipse but usually you can gain access to the brake lights through the trunk. with the trunk open there should be a carpeted cover behind the brake light. the cover usually pops open and you should be able to see the inside of the brake light from the trunk. find the brake bulb and it should just twist out. find the correct replacement from walmart or an auto parts store. the type of light is sometimes listed in the manual of the car if the store does not have a computer...

Brake lights dont work

On some cars the bulb for the brake lights is separate than the tail lights. If not then check the fuse for the brake lights. It is typically separate from the tail lights. Also check for broken wires in the trunk area. These could be damaged from items in the trunk moving around.

My Brake lights don't work

2004 Rx8 kept blowing 15amp brake light fuse. Solution: wire going to rear lights was worn and frayed where it feeds through the left trunk lip on left side of trunk. This can be seen when you open the trunk lid. The wire routes by the trunk lid hinge. If the support connectors come loose, the wires are crunched by the hinge or lid. Re-splice, insulate, zip-tie, replace fuse and replace any blown bulbs.

No brake lights, fuses keep blowing and wont shift out of park

I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.
