Default Brake Lights keep fusing

Hi, Just picked up a 51 PT Cruiser LE and the brake lights aren't working. Check to fuse in the engine and it's blown. Replaced it. Blown again.

History... A tow bar was fitted and the connections were made to the lights at the RHS, I've disconnected that now, but still blows fuses.

Any other suggestions were I could look next at other known points where there maybe a earthing fault?

There's NO known faults with the PT Cruiser lights. After saying that, check for moisture inside the lights themselves. If no moisture, what you have is someone that hooked up the tow bar and screwed things up electrically. You might have to start from scratch and pull all the wires from the bar and test the wires on the car with a multi-meter before slowly putting it all back together.
