It is possible you have a short in your system. A short is where positive connects to ground. Best to check your tail lights and make sure that there are no frayed wires at or leading to them. Also check that there is no rust/corrosion or damage.

That short could be hard to find. Here's what I'd do, after checking everything obvious. Find an old headlight bulb ( I always save stuff like that) and hook the high beam (which seldom burns out, the low beams go first) in place of the fuse. Be very careful with the wiring and tape the connections. Drive around and see if the light ever comes on brightly when you hit a bump or something. It may dimly glow when you use the taillights.
