    You obviously have a short somewhere. Are they both on same fuse? Is the stereo factory or aftermarket installation? I'm thinking they shouldn't be on same fuse if they are, but will wait for reply. Bared wire rubbing against metal somewhere I'm thinking.

Find any wiring that isn't factory setting. If a positive lead is touch anything grounded it'll cause a short and the fuse it blows will be almost different every time. Tape or cap any open leads and make sure every wire is where its supposed to be. And simpler, find a chart of all the reccomended fuses and put them in accordingly.

The problem could possible be a dead short in the wireing, or in the radio its self

My 98' Chevy S10 Warning lights stay on after it is turned off and the key is taken out

I would suggest you take it to a Chevy Mechanic/Dealership. This maybe a common problem inherent to this make/model. Sounds like a relay issue. Various recalls were issued for this make if I recall. Always good to have the dealer check those.

Dash & rear lights out with fuse that keeps blowing when replaced

The radio should have a wire that connects to the dash lights to light up the face at night. I'm guessing that's shorted out

The fuse for my tail lights and dash lights in my 91 Chevy S10 Blazer constantly burns out. I put a new one in and it burns out within a couple of minutes on the road. What's up with this?

you most likely have a wire short or a wire cross. Look for any wires that may have the insulation open and lying on metal. check the battery compartment and the battery cables to make sure they have not been pinched against something sharp. look at any recent parts you have replaced to make sure you have not accidentally smashed (grounded) a wire against the frame. also make sure the fuse is the correct amperage, and make sure that some small amount of debris hasnt lodged itself into the fuse box where the fuse plugs in. (do not attempt to dig any debris out of the fusebox without first disconnecting the negative cable from the battery, then the positive cable.)

1997 chevy s10 blazerdash wont light up when key

the dash sound's like a fuse, check the fuse box under the hood and in the door jamb on the side of the dash, also check your fuel filter and fuel pump, im betting on the pump because i have a 2001 chevy blazer that has had two replaced and it has 233000km on it!

I need to get a diagram of the fuse box for a 2001 chevy blazer so I can determine which fuse is for the radio

the diagram is on the panels that cover the fuses take off the fuse door on the inside, driver side on the dash board you have to open the door and look inside on the other side of the door and its the same with the relays in the engine compartment but the radio shouldnt be under the hood i know i have a blazer

I had a wire running from my amp to the fuse box

You have obviously damaged neighboring wiring in the fuse panel. The reason the dash lights and radio is pulsing is because of feedback.

1991 Chevy Blazer dashboard lights are burned out. Can't read

Your dash needs to come out. These bulbs push into a plastic piece that "twists" into the back of the dash board. (About a 1/4 turn) Unless you can get at them from underneath, but I think it's to tight.
