I do not know electrically were the fuse is in the circuit but if it
protects the lamps and the relay...you may have a shorthed bulb or it's
contacts. If my assumption is correct you will have a short to ground
thru the fuse, the closed relay contacts and the shorted bulb and ....
Test each lamp individually. Typically bulbs are supossed to blow OPEN
but ....check socket and contacts
