Do you have trailer light hook-ups? Fifth wheel lighting and brakes, maybe a gooseneck ball? I would start with anything foreign to the vehicle(Not OEM).Most OEM wiring isn't subject to damage without help from you and I. :o) Hate to say it but we (or the guy who wired the truck for aftermarket lights) is sometimes the worst enemy.

Well my runnung tail lights to my 2005 Dodge magnum are not working...we recently been haveing problems with it we noticed it was the fuse blowing so we kept changing them out..but one day they quite...

You had a short, which kept blowing the fuse. Now the wire may have been pinched somewhere and finally come apart. You now need to trace the circuit with a voltage tester of some kind. Look for 12v dc at the fuse, then the switch input, the switch output and along the wire which usuall runs along the drivers side under the moulding at the door sile, under back seat into the trunk to the lamps. The fron light wires go through a grommet in the firewall up to the lights. Was the car in an accident or had work done just before this started.

Signal lights stop workingno sound no lights. Fuse

likely a short
also it is likely the flasher reley was the original problem now you have likely fryed some wiring with what ever you were doing with the signal light switch it is likely you will have to replace the switch also
good luck hope it helps
unplug the switch and replace fuse
if fuse doesnt blow and every thing works
then you likely cliped some wires or striped the sheilding and created a dead short hopefully it hasnt permiated past the plug or you beter buy some tape and zip ties as it is going to be a long night
and i would sugest some A535 rub for your back after laying under the dash tonight

Jimmy electrical burning.

The wire has rubbed somewhere and is shorted to ground. Replace the wire from the door switch to the light, replace the fuse with one of the correct amperage and it should work. Disconnect the battery while you are replacing the wire.

Interior dash out, tail lights and running light out, is this a fuse? where is it? Signals and brake lights work but blow fuses when it rains

No interior dash lights and no tail lights on a GM usually means it's time for a new headlight switch. To check the fuse, it's in the middle of the fuse box marked instrument cluster. If the fuse is good, buy the switch. Lights blowing fuses means you either have a bare wire running down the driver's side of the truck or up into the tail light assemblies. There is also a plug in under the box on the driver's side near the bumper that may be getting wet. Hope this helps.

Why wont my taillights work on my grand marquis and everytime i put in a fuse it blows out

I had the same problem - the headlight switch was bad. It was drawing too much current and melting the plastic. Solution was to get another headlight switch from the junkyard. Then I used a dremel tool to remove the plastic from the area that kept melting. No problems since.

Brake lights

If fuse keep blowing, then it is a short. If fuse does not blow, then it is a broken line in the brake light wires, follow the wires down to the fuse. Buy a tester, which costs couple of dollars, to test were is power and were not.
