My malibu goes through lightbulbs and fuses like crazy. Most recently the taillights and the instrument panel are out. We'll replace the fuse which will make it work once but at next start up it's blown again.

2005 Chevrolet Malibu Question: tailights/instrument panel

If the fuse is blowing then there is a short in the circuit. If this just started happening after replacing a bulb, double check you installed the correct bulbs and not an incorrect one.
Diagnosing this type of problem is best left to someone with experience in diagnosing electrical circuits.
