2000 Metro blows signal light fuse

I have a 2000 Metro that keeps blowing the signal light fuse.
What do I need to do to fix this?

Probably a short somewhere. I'd start by replacing all the bulbs. That doesn't fix it, time to start tracing wires.

I dont know if you come from a snow area but often the snow built up in the wheelwells cause damage to the wires down by the side lights.
A good place to start looking.
One day I was working in a BMW shop and a old 3 point 0 was in for a tune up and it started to burn around the fender.
For no apparent reason
We put the fire out and investigated.
That was about 20 years ago and I forget what wire caused the short.


Morale of the story is that fuses are not 100 % reliable.
