Added Euro Turn signals and it's blowing a fuse

Finally got the euro turn signals installed but they keep blowing my 8A fuse for the turn signals (same fuse as the brake lights). Gone through a few fuses and can't seem to figure out what the problem is. Anyone else run into a similar problem and can advise? Or better yet, if you're in Seattle, I've got coffee/drinks/food if you want to help tackle this together.

 

Thanks!

Suspect number one is a short.  Look for any place where the turn signal wires could possibly short to anything.  Good luck.

Well.... how did you wire the 2 wires at the bulbs?

That's the question, right?  If it was working fine before, what did you change?  That's the place to start.

I had the same issue on one side when I did the conversion. Discovered it was the bulb socket contacts had a weak return spring allowing one of the two contact wires protrude and  short circuit at the base of the bulbs two contact points.  Make sure you have an inline fuse on each turn signal circuit.

I think that might be my problem. I think the springs are touching when the bulb is installed. Here are some photos.
