The first place to start is under the box at the back of your truck. Check the trailer light wiring and the plugs that go to the tail lights for broken wires and shorts.

Dash lights blow fuse


you have something shorting out you would need to find out which one. dash lights can be connecter by fuse to other parts. I.e door lights ignition timer light timer control etc you would need to find what one of these is causing the problem

Fuse keeps blowing out


The parking lights, dash lights, turn signals, and hazard flasher should be 4 different circuits.

check the parking light fuse or taillight fuse to make sure it has not blown. replace it if it has blown and see if the lights work or if the fuse blows again. if it blows when you turn the lights on then you have a short circuit that needs repaired. if the fuses are good ,then most likely the headlight switch is bad not allowing the taillights or dash lights to work.

Are the bulbs out of the sockets and the fuse blows?
Take bulbs out and check again
Place one back at a time if fuse was OK with bulbs out to locate bad bulb.
Otherwise.......
Do this........if still needed with bulbs out and fuse blowing.
Put a circuit breaker in to replace the fuse of the same amperage.
It will trip off then back on.
Use a standard cheap magnetic compass........place along lighting wiring........the wire with current will cause the needle to jump as circuit breaker trips on and off.
Follow path of current to problem.....the compass will stop moving once past the shorted /grounded wire/connection.

Well, probably there are 2 reasons for that:

1. The fuse is too small

2. You got short in the wiring harness
