But there would be a fuse for those lights, somewhere. The park/taillights and the license plate light would for sure be on the same fuse. Not sure about the shift indicator light, that might be on a separate fuse like for dash lights and/or instrument panel lights. But yes, you need to look at all your fuse panel sites again, there might be more than one under the dash, too, maybe behind the glove box or under the dash on the passenger side.
Check to see if your brake lights and rear turn signal lights work. Do they still work right? If they don't work either, there may be a ground problem with the rear lights. If still no help with the lights, one would need a voltmeter and a wiring diagram of the lights to track down the problem. Things like looking for power along the electrical path from the switch to the fuse panel to the lcm to the bulbs. First find the fuse. good luck.
Check your fuses and double check your wiring. You've likely mis-wired something to the radio that also supplies power for the lights in the dash. So if you find a blown fuse, you might blow it again if it's a wiring issue. Of course, you may have bumped a wire to ground during the install which blew the fuse, so replacing it may be all that's needed.
I had an issue where a "small light fuse" in my 97 accord blew and my parking lights and dash lights didn't work. Small fuse under the hood was all that needed to be replaced.
The fuse to check is 20A fuse #42 (brakes & horn) under the hood. Use a test light or multimeter to measure voltage to body ground at both test tabs at the top of the fuse.OR YOU CAN REPLACE THE SWITCH WHICH IS ABOVE THE BRAKE PEDAL,AUTOZONE,20 BUCKS,OR CHECK THAT TAILLIGHTS ARE GROUNDED AND NO CORROSION.
Fuse boxes located under dash.under hood.in a small plastic cover on left side kick panel on drivers side.should be marked lights or tail-lts. Is all lights on rear of vehicles out or just one side or part of one side as any lights work fuse is still good.brake lights also if they work fuse good.access bulbs from trunk remove 6 screws pull cover.remove wire plug push light socket in turn back counterclockwise.
look for a "small light" fuse in the fuse box under your hood.
You probably shorted something while installing the radio. If it continues to blow the fuse, you need to pull the radio out and check your wiring.
It should be the taillight fuse or instrument panel fuse . there is a small panel to the left under the steering wheel that has fuses in it and there is also a fuse box under the hood on the passenger side .
I'm having the same problem on my 1995 Honda Accord. I hit a bump hard last night, and my dash lights, tail-lights, license-plate lights, and the bell which 'bing's when the door is open and the headlights are on all stopped working. The fuse for "Small lights" under the hood was blown. Replaced it, turned on headlights, and it blew again instantly.
I'm guessing that I have a wire crossed (possibly inside the bulb itself) in the dash somewhere; I checked the taillights and license-plate liights already.
This sounds like you have a bad ground on your Dakota. Trace the wires back until you see that one of the wires is connected to the body or frame with a small screw or small bolt. Make sure that your have a good clean ground to work with.
Another thing that you can check for is to see if there is another light out somewhere else on the truck. Its like christmas lights, when one bulb goes, it can effect all the others just as well. The only other option is to check your fuses, get the fuse diagram and see what controls the taillights. On my truck I have the wrong fuse in there cause only the taillights to work and not the brake lights. Vehicles are very picky with there fuses. If the correct fuse is in there, make sure that the fuse isnt burnt out. You can check that by seeing if the filament in there looks burn or is broken like it popped. Hope this helps!
