Check to make sure your backup lights don't have water in the lens that is causing the short that is blowing your fuse.

Could also be the wrong bulb in one of the sockets.

Otherwise it might just blow another fuse.

I will definantly cheack it out b/c I had some of the light not work on the car before I bought it and I made the guys who owned the car replace all the ones not working (and a tire, and the plug wire, and many other things)

The plug wire they repaced was for another car and rusted that spark plug all to hell so I believe they would do something stupid like that too...

So I got another fuse and the rear window defrost DID work but then a day (or less) later the fuse was blown again. I think that its the back up lights, one is probably a different size bulb than its suppose to have...

Been sick lately so have not had a change to check out the bulbs

Update

Alright, I finally looked at my reverse lights, one of them WERE burnt out, it was wierd b/c the string part was not broken off like most lights that are blown but it did have burn in it, I replaced both bulbs and replaced the fuse once again, hopefully the bulb wont burn out again.
