Are you planning to diagnose and fix yourself?

If so do you own tools to check car electrical?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
No I'm going to take it to an auto repair shop- but the car was at an auto repair for 2 days and those people could not fix it. Please let me know what.i can ask the persons at the repair shop to do for me

The turn signals, the hazards and the brake lights are not working - even though the fuse has been replaced. It's a vw jetta 2014

By myself
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
The 25 amp fuse in the fuse box keeps on blowing up- the person who fixes the car replaced it a bunch of times - but it blows up within minutes again
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 11 days ago.

This is going to be tough for me to tell you what is wrong or what they need to do being you and I are not doing any diagnostics together.

Which fuse number and in which fuse box is failing?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Fuse number 25 in the box that is inside the car in the bottom left
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 10 days ago.

Fuse 25 under the dash would only be related to the reverse lamps, are they the only exterior lamps not working?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
It is the brake lights, turn signals, and hazards that's are not working- when the fuse 25 is replaced it works for a minute and then the fuse blows again
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 9 days ago.

I can not see how fuse 25 has a connection to those lamps failing. I will opt out.
