1985 Celica GT dashboard and running lights out

Hello, I have a 1985 Toyota Celica GT. The dashboard and running lights went out as soon as I drove away from replacing my ignition control module. Replaced fuses (the tail light fuse 15A was destroyed/melted in the fuse box so we figured that's what it was, but nope) Do you think this could be a short somewhere? Or a fuse blown where I can't see? My boyfriend's friends think it's the fuse box itself. I am in denial about that because I can't find a fuse box for this car anywhere!

Hello, the 15A tail fuse is the only fuse in this circuit, yes there is a short to ground, remove all the bulbs in the rear and check to see if the fuse still blows, if not the problem is at the rear lights, possibly a wrong bulb in one of the sockets or s short between the green wires(power) and ground(white/black) wires. If this doesn't stop the short then the problem is up front, possibly a parking or side marker light, do the same, remove the bulbs, if the fuse stays in replace the bulbs one by one until it blows again to isolate which light is causing the problem.
