Default Keeps Blowing Fuse

Well for the last couple of months I've had problems with my car blowing the tailight and dashlight fuse. This happened right after I installed a set of fog lights and a new stereo. Well I went through all the wiring and still have found nothing. The weird part is it will only blow it at random. Sometimes it will blow 5 or 6 in a row and sometimes it will work perfect for 2 weeks straight. i'm starting to think that maybe it'* the headlight switch. I've checked most of the wiring and I've came to the conclusion that it'* not in the dashlights. So I know I need to check taillights and sidemarker lights. I think i'm gonna change the headlight switch out next. Anybody else have any suggestions? At this point in time i'm sick of electrical problems.

Try driving for a while with the new fogs disconnected, see if it continues to blow. Try to isolate the problem. Turn on your fogs and rattle wires around to see if you can get it to blow. There is probably something exposed touching the frame somewhere. Are there any pinch-points where you installed the new wiring?

Did you add a new circut for the fog lights or just add to the existing wiring?

It'* all new wiring for the fog lights. I'm still thinking it'* the light switch. Cause they worked fine last nite. It probably won't blow again for another week or two.
