SOURCE: Instrument cluster failure causes fuse #29 to blow.

ok it could be quite simple
lets look at wrong size fuse
example 15 and you need a 25 fuse
also if you did any work on vehicle its quite possible that you grounded something out wrong retrace your work and fix accordingly
bad cluster relay is another problem that would cause these problems

SOURCE: Instrument cluster not working and truck wont go

I had the same issue with my 2002 F250 7.3 L. The overdrive switch was shorting the circuit due to exposed wires in the steering colum. I replaced the switch and resolved the problem.

2003 honda element fuses blown

One more thing to check , an it's the Main Fuse , it should be either 100 or 150 Amp fuse , ill be back at work Monday and ill check it in my wiring diagram . Usually this Fuse blow up when jumping a car incorrectly or mistakenly touching the terminals together . So I would check the big fuses first . Also why spend 600.00 at the dealer for a cluster when you could find one with a same or close mileage at Ebay for a fraction of that's .

I have a 1995 nissan pathfinder. i keep have electrical issues. when i first got it two months ago it wouldnt start. replaced battery terminals and it was fine for a while. then the meter fuse would blow...

It sounds like just the one problem. Your tails and the dash illumination lights are all on the one circuit that the fuse keeps blowing. Don't get confused thinking of another main fuse, just focus on this one circuit..
It is very seldom that a short develops at the fuse box, it certainly can happen from corrosion or loose terminals, but it is rare. More likely is a bad wire just like the one you found near the exhaust. Somewhere very likely a wire has had insulation stripped or scraped off, soon as the wire touches metal it will blow the fuse. Were any other wires damaged in that harness for the speed sensor? Or do you see any wires hanging down from under the truck, anywhere going back to the tail lights?
If you did the stereo yourself, were any wires cut going to the dash? I doubt this as the wire for the dash lights would be in a wiring harness that is like a bundle from under the dash up to the instrument cluster. You just have to keep looking for the short.

The Meter fuse controls the circuit energizing the odometer in the instrument cluster. If the fuse blow there is usually a short in the circuit powering the instrument panel or in the connections at the back of the instrument panel.

Hello, Im a US Marine and dont know alot about automotive but Im not completly numb... My father in-laws 2003 4x4 dodge pick has been blowing fuse #18 which when blown or removed the dash lights go out......

That fuse also supplies illumination to the radio, hvac controller, cup holder and cigarette tray. I think the best thing to do is start unplugging each one of these until the fuse stops blowing. Then plug the last think in that you unplugged to make sure that makes the fuse blow. If you suspect the instrument cluster start with that first.

Reverse causes fuse for instrumental cluster to blow

Yes there is a reverse light back up switch located on the side of the transmission it will be the only 2 wires going to the tranny. There might be a short in the switch itself or the power wire to switch might have a bare spot where it might be grounding out on the vehicle somewhere.
