SOURCE: no dash lights or rear tail lights

Often stereos have a dash light feed to dim the display when the park/head lights are switched on. I suspect this wire may have been shorted during installation, causing a fuse to blow. Are you certain that the fuse for the park light circuit is intact? I know you have checked them all, but I have overlooked blown fuses in the past, easy enough to do. The best way is to use a test light with the ground clip to a good earth point, and probe both sides of the fuses (ignition key on, park lights on) to see if the test light lights up. If it only light up on one side of the fuse, it's blown.

Hope this helps.

It could be that your brake light switch, located right behind the upper part of your brake peddle, has a short or is no good anymore. Check the wires for cracks, breaks or exposure also

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

2003 Olds Alero keeps blowing fuse For dash and tail lights


Likely there's a wire loose that's shorting to the chassis. The way I troubleshoot these is to put a lightbulb in the fuse socket, and then go under the dash, and move stuff around while somebody watches the light. When it goes on, you're close to the problem. Yeah, it's a royal pain, but that's the best way I know.

Fuse for dash board lights and tail lites keeps blowing


You may have a damaged wire leading to one of the lights that keeps blowing.
Not fun, but you have to chase down the wiring to everything that keeps blowing out.

Tail lights and dash lights keep blowing fuse when you start it


you have a short somewhere, unplug the tail lamps one at a time and see if the fuse still blows. if you disconnect one and the fuse does not blow and everything else works, the problem is in the tail light assembly. if not, the short is most likely in the wiring harness which can be a bit tricky to diagnose. alldata.com/diy offers one year subscriptions to cars with all the repair info and they have excellent wiring schematics. dont forget to try the front marker lamps in addition to the tail lamps.
