Question about 1997 Chevrolet Lumina
If its like my 1999 Lumina, its on the end of the dash on passenger side. Open pass. side front door, look at the end of the dash & you should see a little door that says "FUSES" on it. Grab the tab at the bottom of the little door & pull out. And Ta da, there they are!

For Chev Lumina 1997 3.1 liter model -
first you notice your instrument panel went dark, - then an officer notices your
tail lights are all dark as well - both loads, the panel lights and tail lights,
are on the same circuit, and that fuse is located in the fuse panel under the
hood, driver's side, labeled "PARK
LIGHTS." Note to the wise - this happens because yet a third set of
loads, your side-marker lights are also
on that same circuit, and chances are, road salt has corroded the rear side-marker light sockets and the
corrosion has entered one of the bulbs and deformed the metallic struts inside,
producing a metallic short-circuit, which
has blown the fuse. Simply remove and replace the bulbs, then the fuse. Or if
need be, cut the leads to the corroded sockets and toss both. Replacement
sockets and fresh bulbs can be purchased from the parts counter, or body shop.
But that won't prevent road salt from re-entering the plastic cowl assembly and
potentially repeating the corrosion fault. Apply sealing caulk or form-a-gasket
in two places, 1.) at socket capture
port, and 2.) all around the aperture in
the plastic body-side trim panel, where side-marker lens seats with it.
To check the fuse panel on the driver's side of the engine compartment, you can usually get enough clearance underneath the body strut to unlatch the panel cover. (If not, you'll use a 1/2" socket to loosen the (2) forward bolts that secure the strut, because it ties down the fuse panel cover). You'll find that the main 15 amp fuse is blown (no continuity). Replace that fuse, check tail lights, panel lights and front side marker lights, re-apply the fuse panel cover (re-fasten body strut if needed), and you're done.
Less likely that either of the front side-marker lights have developed the short-circuit that blows the fuse, but it's next in line to check, if the rears were found to be fault-free.
