    I had the same problem. The fuses kept blowing on my 2001 Pathfinder and rear lights and dashboard lights would go out. I finally figured out the problem. The battery cable has a part that goes directly to the fuse box under the hood on the passenger side. This is cable is actually part of the battery cable assembly, but it started loosening up, bending to the point that it was barely holding on, this was causing it to blow my fuse. Nissan is very sneaky with this, they try to sell you the whole battery wire harness witch runs 350 bucks. This lead on the battery cable separates from all the other cables and can be replaced. Problem is that Nissan does not sell the part by itself. You have to go to a salvage yard and get it. It is very easy to replace and costs less than 10 bucks at a salvage yard.
    This part is the red lead that connect directly to the positive terminal on your battery. You would not be able to tell if is is breaking apart because the whole part is covered. It's one big red piece that conceals everything that is underneath. Replacing this should take care of your dashboard and back light issue.

Sounds like loose wires. Had a similar problem with my 03 Durango. Kept blowing fuses when I put them in. Came to find out my trailer wiring harness had fried and was shorting out.

SOURCE: FUSES KEEP BLOWING FOR THE DASH AND TAIL LIGHTS

your lights are grounding out some where you will have to check for a dead short in the wiring use a volt meter in the resitance mode and track through you power side of the lights untill you find your dead short, start at the back and work your way to the fuse box pull the fuse and follow the wire. there is a short in it it will just take some time going through look for worn coating, cracks, or melted.
good luck & and happy hunting

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

What would cause my front dash light and my tail lights go out on a 98 Chevy Tahoe? It keeps blowing fuse after fuse. I have put in about 5 of them back to back and they keep blowing. Help


If the fuses keep blowing it means you have a short somewhere in your wiring harness. These can sometimes be a pain to track down. I would check the wiring in the rear closely first. If you have ever had a trailer hitch and wiring installed check that as installers sometimes screw things up.

First put the required fuse dont go up you do more damage, For a fuse to blow you left rear side light and side light has shorted out to ground. left side rear light look at the wire are there any exposed, If no go to the side light inspect the wire are the exposed, if you see any repair it, Now if fuses keep blowing go the lamp belonging to that fuse and pull the bulb out with the bulb out an fuse installed twist the socket one at a time did the fuse blow,if it did you found the source,more than likely you ll need a bulb socket, as long as the wire are in good shape . Remeber correct fuses,No foil No nails No other Range just the required fuse

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.
