You have a short in the running light system. All connections and lights in that system must be checked for a loose or fault. Try disconnecting the back light connections and the tag light first. If you don't blow the fuse it is in the tail light area. If this vehicle came with a factory tow package it could be related to that system as well. This is common with factory tow systems.

fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw

My dash lights went out. i replaced the fuse and that worked for about three days and the fuse blew again.

could be a short in the tail lights, i had this happen to. same truck. check for stretched wires through the body behind tail light as they might be pulled hard enough to ground out, blowing the fuse, i couldnt find anything, try a rebuildable fuse so it cant blow, or just wrap it with tin foil. the qwik fix for stuck on the road

My tail lights and dash lights quit working

The Tail lights and Instrument lights are usually on the same circuit so both will go out if the fuse for the circuit blows. Check for a blown fuse for this circuit and replace if out. If fuse continues to fail, check the tail light or side globes for a faulty globe and replace if necessary. Also check for any chafed wires that could be shorting to the body causing the fuse to blow.

96 dodge ram 2500 tail lights and instrument panel lights quit working at the same time all other lights work help please!!!

Check your tail light fuse, on the dodge ram the dash lights and tail lights use the same fuse so if the tail light fuse blows your dash lights will go out to alert you of no tail lights.
