Brake light circut

I have a "95" Suburban that keeps blowing the brake light fuse when the
brake pedal is engaged. I have replaced the brake switch and the
multifunction switch in the collum, and have traced the wires along the
frame to the rear of the vehicle and cannot find a short any where.
There is no trailer harness. what else could be the problem?  Thanks
any help would be appreciated.

    Spend $6 and replace all of the brake bulbs in the rear.  Should fix
    your problem.  Look closely at the bulb sockets for any terminal
    deformation while you are in there.  The rear brake bulb sockets will
    be filled with greasy, dirty dielectric crap, so you may need to clean
    that out with solvent to really get a good look at the actual contacts.

    these trucks are known for having circuit board problems. When you take
    the bulbs out of the rear, they plug into the circuit board. Look
    closely at the board for burns or corrosion. .

    Most likely you do have a trailer harness.  Its just taped up and balled
    up and shoved on top of the rear hitch somewhere.  Thats how my 95
    blazer came be default.  It does not have a connector on it.  If you
    have a hitch, you probably have a harness.

    Yes, unlike the fake mechanics found here.
