The problem started when the blinkers went out once that happened the brake lights went next. Was told to replace brake switch and did that but fuse still blows when I replace. Then was told to replace blinker switch which have done as well still shorts out brake light fuse. When the car is on and the lights are on the brake lights are lit. I know it is probably a short somewhere but is this a known problem with this vehicle? And where can I go from here? Thank you.

Is there a trailer light harness? If so remove it and see if short goes away. Remove rear tail lights and inspect wiring at rear lights and inspect sockets where bulbs go for shorts

No trailer light harness and also checked brakelights they seem to be fine. When inspecting sockets is there anything paticular I should be looking for? Any other suggestions or questions?
