Fuse keeps blowing out

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

Fuse keeps blowing

Sounds like you have a wiring problem. May want to begin by determining which circuit is causing your fuse to blow. If you are not mechanically inclined, I recommend you take if to a trust worthy repair shop.
