    oh thanks for responding, didnt think i would get a response. Any ways after working on it for hours i traced it back to the license plate wire, right where the spare tire is mounted. the tire smashed the wire against the frame exposing the wire and grounding out casuing the short.

I KNOW YOU HAVE AN ELECTRICAL SHORT.WAS AN ALARM INSTALLED OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ACCESSORY? CHECK WITH DODGE TO FIND OUT ABOUT A RECALL.IF SOMETHING WAS INSTALLED, TAKE IT BACK THERE TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT IF NOT HAVE A AUTO TECHNICIAN CHECK IT FOR YOU.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

No tail lights


no (park -tail-running lights) is dash parking lamps glowing?
check the tail fuse yet?
94 accord
this circuit is huge, park/tail, up to 20 lamps. are all dead>?
front park, side park, tail park and dash lamps all out.
this i the red-blk feed. all comments , USA, as lighting varies by country. (laws)
license plate light dead too????????? that too is park
there is NO RELAY.
the fuse 32 feeds the HL (head light) switch and in PARK posistion
it feeds 12vdc raw power to all 38 lamps. (side corning lamps,etc)
the license plate lamp is key, there are 2 lamps.
and both probably are not out.
so if they are good lamps and both tail lamps are good and fuse
then they must glow, if one lamp shorts as 1156 or the like love to do
then it blows the fuse. as does the trailer jack (option) .

so fuse 32 park/tail blown
or HL park switch bad, if all 20 odd lamps dead. and fuse holds.
that simple, and this cars wiring is very simple and nice.

Tail lights, instrument panel lights, and license plate lights not working. Fuse blows immediately when changed.


that line on that fuse is shorted, the fuse saved the fire.
we use an ampclamp DC ammeter to find the wire that is shorted
and the actual point of short.

the park-tail circuit (tail fuse, right) is the most complex of all.
20 lamps inside car, and many out side, it is the hardest to find of all shorts. but not with the tool
first check for damage behind all park lamps
i bet the fuse blows in park (1st click) not head lights. right?
side lamps the 4 front rear park lamps, some call it tail its not really tail now, was in 1920 ,not now. park is everywhere.
but the fuses can be marked tails, for fun .
imagine, calling the 2 front lamps tails. and are on .(my on going joke)
sidelamps,
the inside lamps are many too.
all dimmable lamps. so turn the dimmer down to zero and see if fuse blows now, NO?, bingo.

the best way to fix this is , visual inspections for collision damage or wire hacks in the cab.
then the fuse is pulled and circuit breaker inserted 15amp
(they sell em)
then we connent the ammeter to the wire (output of fues)
i push the switch and amps goes to infinity and the CB trips
if follow the cables, and find what line is shorted.

i missed one problem
on the rear or front 4 corners of the car may be twist lock blubs.
like 1157 or? these love to short. push in lamps never short.well not the lamp actual.
in not sure what lamps the 06 uses, but replace the brass based lamps. (in park tail ckt)

My 1995 honda accord, dash light stop working, tail lights and brake lights all at the same time. what is the problem and how hard is it to replace the part.


I'm having the same problem on my 1995 Honda Accord.  I hit a bump hard last night, and my dash lights, tail-lights, license-plate lights, and the bell which 'bing's when the door is open and the headlights are on all stopped working.  The fuse for "Small lights" under the hood was blown.  Replaced it, turned on headlights, and it blew again instantly.
I'm guessing that I have a wire crossed (possibly inside the bulb itself) in the dash somewhere;  I checked the taillights and license-plate liights already.

Good luck!  I'll let you know how my fix goes.

Tail, dash, and license lights will not turn on with head lights


the plate and tail lights are on the same fuse you can check that fuse and the dash light fuse with a test light,
but i'm pretty sure your head light switch is the problem,

My brake lights work but the tail lights and license plate light don't work every time I turn on the fuse it blows I have a 1984 pontiac fiero.


Remove all bulbs on the tail lights and license plate circuit.
Replace fuse, turn on parking lamps- check if fuse blows without any lamps connected.
If it does, check for short circuit to ground on the taillight/license plate wiring.

If it doesn't blow, re-install one lamp at a time until all lights work. you may have a faulty lamp or lampsocket.
