SOURCE: 1995 ford escort ... fuse diagram

Funny story: I had a similar problem until one day, on the way to work, the fuse blew and the dash just wouldn't light up at all. That's when I found out that the dash light fuse is the same fuse that protects the tail lights. It was too dark to drive without tail lights so I replaced the 15 amp fuse with a 20. It blew too. In desperation, I used a 25 amp fuse (stupid!). Back on the road and five minutes later, I smelled burning electrical wires. By the time I found a safe place to pull over the damage was done... but at least it made it easier for me to notice the problem. I waited for dawn.

In the light, I started tracing the problem. This time I started at the back instead of under the dash. I opened the hatch (it's a wagon) and saw it right away. The wire bundle that feeds the rear door had become quite chewed up from opening and closing for 13 years. I had to cut and splice at least a dozen wires and re-insulate them. Everything was fine after that, even my centre brake light(that hadn't been working for YEARS). I only wish I had checked this BEFORE I threw in that 25 amp fuse. Since everything was shorting out in the tailgate, it really heated up some wires under the dash too. Now my power locks don't work. And I blew all but one of the lights in my dash. Now I HAVE to take the dash out to replace those lights. Argh.

So. Check the fuse (I think it's labeled TAIL LIGHT). But REALLY check that wire cluster to the rear door.

SOURCE: headlights and dash light dont work

You would have to check and see if you are getting any power out of the light switch. There is a seperate wire for the headlights and the dash lights.

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

SOURCE: My headlights on my 1997 Jeep Wrangler will not

I retract my entire solution, having not read correctly your situation. You may simply have lost a body ground wire.????

Which fuse should i change for my headlights ?

Look at your fuse panel board either under the dash board on drivers side or possibly under the hood depending on vehicle. It will tell u which fuse is for the headlights.

Or from the sounds of it... Possible head light bulb burnt out and not a fuse. A headlight fuse should not be popping or burning out. I would suggest looking at the filament on the bulb to see if intact. Replace broken head light bulb with working other working headlight to eliminate one possibility. If it works buy a new bulb. If it doesn't look at fuse panel.

Lights are headlight/bulb out indicator relay and the windows are most likely the conveinece relay or a fuse. Spin the fuses because due to corrosion they may not have clean contact.

Instruments lamps don't turn on in Mercedes 300E 1992

Make sure your dash "dimmer" is not turned all the way done, its a small rod thats twists clockwise to increase dash illumination, counter clockwise to decrease...
Next..the bulbs in the back of the gauge cluster might be burned out , if they are the original bulbs, thats probably the case...
