Turn signal Fuse keeps blowing
I own a 2004 6 59 V-Star. Recently i found that my turn signal fuse keeps blowing.

It only blows under certain conditions. The bike must be on, turn signal must be on and then when i press the brakes(either) it blows the fuse. Nothing occurs when the bike is off(with key on)

Phase 1: Replace the fuse
It would blow when brake was pressed when turn signal was engaged(and engine was started)

Phase 2: remove seats, fuel tank
I then traced all the wires and could not find any wires that were torn or frayed. Most of the wires are still in their sleeves and there doesn't seem to be any excessive pressure/twisting on the wires. All connectors appeared to be sound(no decay/rot)

Phase 3: replace the fuse with a 15a(only fuse i had on hand)
I then removed the HEADLIGHT fuse(which is not blown) and started the bike. then applied turn signals and brakes and the turn signal fuse DID NOT blow.

So now I'm a little confused as to where to go from here and as to why the headlights would effect the turn signals when they are on separate fuses.

edit: was formatted weird with font and size

Have you tried replacing the brake light bulb?
