You have a short circuit. None of us can know where it is but if you have aftermafket turn signals... I'd start looking at those connections.

Pull the tail and disconnect all the lights. Replace the fuse and try the signals with everything dosconnected. If the fuse blows its most likely in the wiring along the frame back to the box or in the switch. If you have a meter test for continuity with the power off across different lines that run with the power lead to the lights. If you get a reading on anything but the same line they are touching. You can also check the continuity on the wire to the frame in multiple locations to see if its grounding out on the frame somewhere.

its easy you have wires touching somewhere, does it have aftermarket lights? and hold on.. if you found the fuse that keeps popping why did you need to know where the fuse box was? what fuse keeps popping?

It has to be wires touching somewhere. I had the same problem, and it turned out I had two wires touching with my integrated light. It would blow fuses. A re-tape job did the trick!

boo for tape, best bet is to use heat shrink tubing over connections. cost like $4 for a multi-pack with many different tube sizes. its the best to use for any connections
