Tail light out on 2005 hyundai santa fe and a couple weeks later the rear signal lights went out too. Replaced fuse for signals and they work for a couple minutes then blow fuse again. Replaced bulb in tail light but still didn't work so replaced fuse and it blew as soon as I plugged it in. Any hints?

Your fuses blow because of a high current draw. This means there's a short to ground somewhere in the circuit, probably due to worn/cracked insulation in a wire. You'll need a test light or voltmeter to isolate the area one section of the circuit at a time.
