Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer.I will try my best to help you with your question.
First, inspect all the bulbs and sockets including the 3rd brake light. Leave them all unplugged and see if the fuse still blows. The [plug in one at a time until the fuse blows. Most of the time it is the third brake light socket assembly.
