Fuse is blowing on instrument panel

First all my instrument panel went dead and froze in the place they were. Then I went to drive home (at night) and turned on the lights and the alarm for when you open the door went off and stayed on.The car then died. I replaced the altenator and replaced the fuse for the instrument panel and all was well for 10miles and the fuse blew again. Not too sure where to go now.

When a fuse blows something is grounding out in the system you need to find where it is grounding out and replace the wires that are bad, as well as whatever the bad wires messed up. eg.. guages. etc.. I hope this helps you out.

My F450 class C motor home keeps blowing the fuse #36 for the instrument panel lights

If possible check all running lights,they are usually on the same circuit. You may want to put a circuit breaker in place of fuse for testing

Instrument panel has frozen what could be the possible cause of this.

Check fuses for Steering control module and connections to back of Display, same thing happens on Volvos usually fuse or heatsink on display control IC gets hot due to heat paste drying out clean and replace if possible or seek service agent , An OBD reader may possibly show up fault so you need to get a scan of the DT faults your local garage will do this quite cheap for you.

Hello! There is a flexible flat connector that supplies the instrument panel...
They are well known to break at the point of the connection...If you can remove the instrument panel and inspect it with a bright light; Look for a solder break where the Orange wire (power feed) enters the panel...

I have a 87 jeep comanche. auto. transfered to 4x4. my dash light wont work, i believe its a dead short because i raised the fuse number and it still blew. my question is, were would be the most likel

When say "dash light" I'm assuming you mean the nighttime illumination for instruments like the speedometer for example. If your truck has a stand-alone digital clock (not part of the radio) that has a feed wire from the instrument panel lights for it to dim at night, otherwise it'd be too bright. That could be a source of a short. The radio also makes use of the dash illumination as well, making the digital display darken at night and lighting the radio's controls and face plate at night, another source of a short in this circuit. Do not ever increase fuse ratings when replacing a fuse, that defeats the safety purpose of the proper fuse being able to blow, opening the circuit which prevents wires overheating and potentially catching fire. You don't want to go there. If you have recently installed another radio the wiring may be wrong. This happened a LOT on Pontiac Firebird's and TransAm's. People often wrongly assumed all black wires are ground and ended up grounding the dash illumination input. This blew the dash light fuse and made the retracting headlight doors stay up.

Radio and center car instrument panel went out changed fuse and it blew out upon connecting

You have a dead short somewhere. Try disconnecting the radio and replacing the fuse. If the fuse blows you'll know that radio isn't the problem. Try accessing and inspecting the wiring, you may have a grounded wire somewhere.

What's wrong if the car works but the instrument panel is completely dead?

Sounds like a fuse or the instrument panel is dead. Either or. Check the fuses, then if their all good, then it's the instrument panel (as it is one whole piece). Before buying another panel, also check that it's all plugged in correctly in the back (as it could have been replaced (if it's used or if your not the first owner) and the previous owner could have put it in and not pushed the plug(s) in all the way.

Instrument panel went dead

Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).
