    her rear lighting fluid is extremely low, and when her tail lights come on, its causing the pump to work harder than intended causing over heating resulting in blown fuses... just kidding, probably water in the light sockets somewhere, or a wire has been pinched and is shorting out. trace down all the wires you can and check for any nicks, worn out insulation, etc.

    so that eliminates the neutral side of the line leaving only the positive side. the best i can tell you is to look up the fuse sizes, and make sure they are the right amperage. there should be a diagram on the fuse box panel cover. then you probably are gonna have to trace down the wiring. there might be another wire touching the light fuse holder causing a short. you probably need to check all the other fuses to make sure there is no others blown too. look behind the fuse panel, trace down the wires as far as you can. pay spcial attention to pinch points.
