    I have activated the dashboard, and all is well, by feeding battery voltage externally to the input side of the fuse (added info from eldorena).

Left side parking lights/dash lights don't come on. 10 amp fuse just keeps blowing. Checked bulbs and replaced head light switch.


you shouldn't have replaced the switch... it was probably good from the start

your key words "fuse just keeps blowing"
that means a wiring problem / got to trace the circuit and find where that wire is short circuiting to power is the only fix for this situation

Why dome lights with fade do not work when doors are opened or closed?


All of the items you listed are controlled by the Central Control Unit (AKA body control module) which is located under the right side of the dash behind the glove box.

The CCU has several battery voltage inputs which should be checked:

Fuse #8 (15 Amp), (Hot in RUN or START) and Fuse #15 (20 Amp) (HOT AT ALL TIMES) in passenger compartment fuse block.
Fuse #10 (10 Amp) (HOT AT ALL TIMES) in the engine compartment fuse block, via the inertia switch located ay the left rear side of the engine compartment.

Note: the inertia switch supplies power to pin #18 (BLUE/GREEN wire) at the CCU connector C0428. If there is battery voltage at this pin, the inertia switch is OK.

When you check your fuses, make sure they have power when they are supposed to have power. I have had many people simply LOOK at the fuses and tell me they are OK only to find out that the fuse has no power even though it is not blown. (possible connector or wiring problem to the fuse itself).

If this information is not enough to locate the problem, you will need a scan tool that is capable of two-way communication with your onboard computer network to continue diagnosis.

its aprocess of tracing the wires on the circuit with a tester from the power sorce & checking along its path to the other ends!
a bad earth or ground can also cause loss of continuity [result looks like no power]
