The taillight fuse keeps blowing on driver side. blinker and brake lights still work only affecting running light.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I unplugged the tail light in back to see if trouble might be in tail light but still blew fuse. i have also followed wiring harness and didn't find any damage.
