Exclamation taillights and dash lights

Ok Here is the problem, i bought the car about a week and a half ago (2001 Ford Focus ZX3), and while driving that night after work i realized i had no dash lights so i called the dealership the next day cuz there was no dash light fuse, they said they would fix it, a few days go by and i put my subs in, then the next day someone pulled up next to me and said i had no taillights so i went home found the fuse for that, and it was a 10 and was blown, so i didnt drive at night for a few nights and called the dealership and said the taillights didnt work either and i told them that it was probably a law to sell a car without working safety lights, so the next day i bought some more fuses, put it in, turned the lights on, it blew again, tried all the way up to a 25 fuse and it smelled like burning wire but the DASHLIGHTS AND TAILLIGHTS worked, so i took it out as soon as i smelled that, maybe drove a half a block. so i tried another 10 in the day light and i watched it pop again as soon as i turned the lights on. So i brought it back down to the dealership (an hour away from my house) and said i would leave the car for them to fix it, now they dont want to fix it cuz they said it worked when they sold it to me and that it was the subs that shorted out the fuse, i dnt kno how that would be possible if the subs have there own wiring and fuses, so please tell me what u guys think i should do and i wished i would of made a video before the subs went in.....
