Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi there I am wondering if anybody has ever had this problem and fixed it I
have a 1993 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Royal and the park light fuse keeps
blowing after about 5-10 minutes of driving with the park lights on, the tail
lights also go out which makes driving the car at night safely very difficult. so
far I've tried to fix it first off by replacing the fuse. gone though at least 10
fuses so its safe to say faulty fuses can be ruled out. I have replaced the
switches which didn't change anything. Any feedback is welcome.

after 20 fuses i figured out that it happens when you make a 90 degree turn and found out that the short was caused by the steering wheel climate and radio controls so after unscrewing the airbag and disconnecting the controls wire the problem went away. i will post again once i have figured out exactly how to solve this issue fully. i couldn't find anywhere else on the internet of how to fix this problem. i hope this post helps someone with the same problem as me
