Have you checked for socket, shorted wiring and ground problems?

Yes, and with the help of a friend we think the problem is in the switch of the turn signal. That will take some effort to correct. But we have no other ideas into what can be wrong as new fuses can make the turn signal work, but soon signal stops as the fuses blow. This also effects the brake light on the driver's side, not on the other side. Ground problems may also exist, but we are still looking. Thanks for any suggestions you might have.
