Dash lights out-fuse comfirmed OK

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.

SOURCE: Chrysler PT Cruiser interior light fuse blown

hi ,
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.

good luck

JM

Dash light doesn't work


Check fuses for dash light / instrument display. If the fuse is good, you may want to check if stereo share an illumination wire with dash. You may have broken the connection behind stereo.

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.
