Changed 10A stop fuse in cab and under the hood. Fuse under hood blows whenever I press the brake. Took out bulb from passenger side rear light, fuse still blew when pressing brake. Removed connections from driver side light, fuse did not blow when pressing brake.

Thanks , it seems there is a short in the light assembly on the left side since the fuse stops blowing when it's disconnected from the harness. Does the fuse still blow with the lights connected but the bulbs removed on the left side?
