orange wire

An orange wire feeds the 'hot' side of the brake light switch. Does someone have a schematic showing both sides of the fuse and how voltage is fed into the orange wire? Out of nowhere, my brake light switch blew the fuse because evidently there is somewhere in the wire that is touching because the wire shows continuity with my tester. Even with the fuse blown, there is continuity on both sides of the fuse so I need to know where the fuse gets voltage. Can someone please help? Thanks, Rich

Brake light switch goes to turn signal switch and then to brake light bulbs.
Remove brake light bulbs and you should have no continuity.

orange wire

The white wire comes out of the brake light switch to the turn signal switch and then is distributed to the brake/turn signal bulbs. It's the 'hot' orange wire going into the other side of the brake light switch that I'm referring too. The orange wire is how the white wire gets voltage through the brake light switch. With the orange wire unplugged from the brake light switch there is still continuity in the orange wire. That's why I need a schematic of the orange wire routing.
