Fuse #7 aka left side tail light

For some reason fuse #7 blows as soon as I turn the headlights on. This happens even when the tail light is disconnected. A visual inspection doesn't show an issues and ohming the wiring at the taillight plug doesn't show any undesired grounding.

Has anyone had a similar issue?

find out what else is connectd to your #7 fuse

start inspecting all the wires - everywhere

start with wires that did not come from the BMW

assembly line, any wires in the area of prior

body shop repairs

what changes to the car to make this start ?_____

how long have you owned the car ?_____

The only change was that I removed the tail lights to re-paint the plastic that lost its silver. The fuse blows without the tail light connected.

There have been no changes other than that. I'll start inspecting near the taillight plug and work back to the fuse block. The car hasn't moved since Xmas( I live in pa)
