Default Fuse blowing on lighting circuit

The fuse protecting the circuit on the tail lights and dashboard
lights keeps blowing. This has happened 5 times now. When I replace
the fuse it either blows again straightaway or soon after I drive the
car again. The car is a UK spec 2001 1.8 VTEC Sport.

Any clues as to the likely cause ?

You most likely have a short somewhere. The fuse is there to protect
against such a thing.

Start by checking the bulb sockets and grounding of the sockets.

=======================

You changed your car stereo and left the extra 'illumination' wire
dangling around unprotected? Maybe you've pinched a wire and it needs a
good shake to short to ground?

Just a thought...check for water in the tail light bulb sockets. I had this
in an old Dodge Dakota. Packed them with grease and never had the problem
again.
