Question about 1994 Nissan Sentra 4-Door
I have a 2001 ford escort zx2 the dash lights went out and also the tail lights. the fuse was blown i replaced it and when started car and gave gas it blows it got down road and it smelled like hot plastic
You have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.
