The only way to resolve this problem is to use a meter to find out if the problem is an over-current fault or a short-circuit fault. WHatever the case may be, the wiring and lamp assembly will have to be inspected for damage

(#23fuse)No turn signals/backup lights - keep blowing fuse. hard to get out of park.

You have a short to ground on that circuit , you need to look at a wiring diagram an see what all is on that circuit . It's hard to get out of park because this circuit supply's power to the shift interlock actuator . You don't need to step on the brake pedal for this fuse to blow ? just stick in a new one an it blows ? This fuse also powers the brake switch , which powers your brake lights .

My 88 Acura the 7.5A fuse to the turn signal backup/light blows.

Get an exact replacement at a junk yard. It must be for the same transmission, etc. You won't get too far without the gages. The fuses are sized for the load and I think you are on the right track. Putting a larger amperage is never a solution. Remember, all of the lights have a corresponding "message" lamp on the little car/door ajar key on that cluster.

Fuses no. 7 & 37 on my 318is K-reg Bmw keep MELTING.

you have to figure out where there is a short in your wiring--follow wires, look for broken, missing insulation--if it started in lights, look there first maybe. Also check the connections of plugs. Good luck it may take some searching.
