Question about Cars & Trucks
My dash lights stopped working after I was trying to fix a problem with my stereo. I found that the fuse was not blown but was the wrong rating-10A instead of t 7.5 as per the fuse chart. I have pulled out the dash and found and replaced 1 blown lamp. However I still measure an open circuit and no volts when I remove the fuse and check the circuit. I'm not sure what to try next so any ideas would be much appreciated.

remove pos batt cable 1st
I would start examining the door switches since they are a constantly cycling part, Im not exactly sure how many accessories run off the door switches but I would examine the drivers door switch, study how the switch removes from the door, gently pull switch assembly out, being careful not to yank wires loose. remove it and look for arcing marks or soot, try all the doors, then I would disassemble the dome light itself if you cant find it, if you find the short you should reinsulate with thermoheat wrap heated with a hairdryer and maybe even some extra electric tape.
