Question about Mazda Protege
Dash,tail and parking lights are out. Keeps popping fuses. Replaced switch and problem is the same. What else could it be?
One of the light fixtures has a grounded power wire. Examine all light fixtures closely for bare or grounded wires. If you find nothing, trace the wiring harness to switch paying close attention to places where the wire harness passes through holes on the body for the harness. Any contact with the steel vehicle body from a power wire has the potential to cause a short, which will blow fuses faster than you can replace them. Start with the outside tail and marker lights. Also look for broken filaments inside the bulbs, as a broken filament touching another filament or wire inside the bulb can do the same thing. Good luck.

Conrad, up north.
My protege is a '99. The turn signals and hazard flashers use the same flasher unit. It is located under the dash to the left of the steering wheel and above and a bit to the right right of the driver's side fuse box.
