Default Fuse 46...suggestions?

I've had fuse 46 issues on-again, off-again over the past few years, with my 1998 M Sport, but now the car seems incapable of healing itself like it has in the past and every time I start the car I pop the newly-installed fuse. With kids in the car with me everywhere I go, I really want my brake lights to work. The radio is the factory original tape deck, and nothing else on the car has been upgraded or changed that would effect the wiring. When I get new fuses (and I buy a dozen at a time), the dealership gives me blue ones which seem to be 15 amps /32 volts. Is this the right fuse? Does it keep blowing because its the wrong amp or volt amount? I'm just really hoping its something easy like that. If not, I guess I'll need to start seeking out actual wires and seeing if they're shorting out? Any suggestions are welcome!

I don't have an answer for you, but I've had the same problem. Mine just disappeared, but I'm almost positive it should be a red fuse, 10A. I don't think that will make a difference, but you never know. Sorry I can't help out more.

when mine kept blowing last week it was my after market deck but since you have the factory deck thats probably not likely. but what about pulling the deck just to see does the deck work. maybe its shorting out inside the deck.

try taking the deck out and put a new fuse in. or maybeopen up your back lights out to see if its something back there. cnnectors or anything.

what about trying some automatic resetting fuses?

i had one in my quad because when you started it blew a fuse but once it was running it wouldnt blow them.

so the fuse would blow and then reset and the lights worked again.

Default Fuse 46 solution

Okay, got to the root of the problem (which was fuse 46 constantly blowing out and leaving me with no brake lights)... apparently a bulb somewhere in one of my rear lights was improperly installed. Boy, that was an easy fix. For those who responded, thanks so much and for those of you who may be having this problem, I hope it's as easy to solve as it was for my little ti!
