Default Tail Light Fuse Keeps Blowing

If I turn the headlight switch on, both turn signals and tail lights stays on w/o any blown fuse but if i turn on the right turn signal, fuse blows out. what kind of problem it would be?

before it keeps blowing out, I've installed a depo driver side headlight and e55 projectors. Never had any problem
Someone please help me out thanks!!

Sounds like something is shorting...it's going to be very hard to diagnose over the internet...you're going to need to start backtracing your wiring to find the issue...

If the head/parking lights are off, does it still blow the fuse?

Did you mean that the parking lights up front come on? Until you engage the right turn signal? It could be wiring, but i doubt it unless the car has been in an accident. Likely going to be a bulb. What kind of bulbs/lights do you have in the front and rear?

yes parking lights up front come on until i engage the right turn signal

I have led turn signal with resistor and LED tail lights.

Even though I switch to halogen turn signal w/o resistor, and disconnect the led tail light, it still blows the fuse

Look at the wiring for the cornering lights. They run off the same fuse and only come on when the head lights are on. Hence why it only blows when the the head lights are on.
