Need help! Spod fuse keeps blowing

I just recently installed a 50inch LED, one set of cube led on the windshield mount and another set on the front bumper. All are wired up to an spod. Everything worked great for 2 weeks. But now the cube lights on the number keep blowing a fuse and I don't know why. I've already replaced it several times an used 10, 15 amps but I blows every time I flip the switch. The other cube set is using 15 amp fuse which was on the ones that keep burning out. Not sure what to do. Please help

Check your wires from the light to the sPod to make sure the positive wire hasn't had the insulation rubbed off and touching metal.

Took a look at all the wires. There is no exposure. Any other ideas?

Put the wires on a different switch number and see if it blows that fuse to eliminate the sPod being the problem. If the fuse is still breaking and your wires are all good then I'd think that 1 or both of the lights are bad. Disconnect 1 light and test, disconnect the other and test the first light u disconnected. There's an easier way using a multimeter but I'm not positive how to tell u what to do and rather say nothing than to mislead u. Inspect your wires, test your power/switch source, test your lights. Without using a multimeter, u can switch everything around using process of elimination.

If you cannot find anything wrong, get a volt meter out and look for stray voltage on the ground side or high resistance on the positive side. You are blowing fuses which means there is a wiring or component fault somewhere. Isolate the positive and negative for each light unit. See if there is unusual resistance in any single pair.
