You have a direct short. Take the bulb out of dome light, inspect the socket. Try putting fuse back in while bulb is out. If the fuse blows again, Id say it's in the wiring from the fuse box to the the switch. If the dome light fuse also covers other electrical things, such as lighter, check the socket at all points. You mentioned that other fuses were replaced as well? Which ones, and why did they blow? Sometimes it could be moisture entering your fuse box, or condensation near the computer, but is sounds more like a short. Could be as minor a a bad ground wire, or a chafed wire. While you are putting the fuse back in, it will help to keep your eyes looking around the fuse box for sparks as soon as the fuse goes in. You should also listen for that electrical snap. If this doesn't help, I'd suggest taking head panel down and follow and inspect the wires from dome down to the switch. Then from switch [ which could also be the cause ] to fuse box. look for hot spots, arcs, and bare spots. I hope this helps you out. keep me informed

I can not find the cruse control fuse for my 1988 crysler newyorker the book i bought for it want tell me were it is eaither

Usually your fuzes are either under the drivers side kick panel, up under the dash or under the hood, it may also be running in line with another circuit, if you have anything else that isn't working, you CC may be in line with that. Visually inspect all your fuzes by pulling them out one at a time to make suer their all good.

I have no brake lights in my 1989 chrysler new yorker but have every other lights whats the problem?

Check the stop light switch down by the brake pedal. there's 2 wires going to the switch. when the pedal is pressed the little button on the switch comes out and causes the brake lights to come on. Try unplugging it and putting a jumper wire in the plug to complete the circuit. Second guess: if the car is rusted, check the wires in the trunk above the wheels.

I have a 1990 Chrysler newyorker 3.0 w/air, and the car died all of a sudden, all fuses are good all relays are good ,(new spark plugs, new wires, about 3 months old). It gets plenty of gas, but no spark....

I am just guessing but there should be a fuse box under the hood as well and one of the fuses will be marked engine or ignition. These are larger fuses and the fuse box is generally mounted on the upper wheel well towards the back of the engine compartment nearer the windshield on the right or left hand side of the engine. Let me know if you found it and the problem is fixed and if not I have other ideas. Please leave a thumbs all the way up for me. I can use a good woed. The Raz Shack
