Chilton's Manual- but if you have a multimeter, check continuity on the fuses while they are still in block. This is the quickest way to do it.

My sister has a 2000 chevy cavalier b4 the door chime and the interior dome light worked now they both dont, we replaced the bulb and fuse to no avail and I have no clue what's wrong with the chime.


the chime actually is done with the radio. the front drivers door speaker. so if the radio works and the front left speaker works. then more then likely you have a defective door switch. located in the door jam that controls the dome light

Where is the 2014 taurus trunk light fuse


It is the interior/dome light fuse. If you have dome lights, Then the trunk light should work. If it doesn't , then you will have to replace the bulb or start tracing the wires.

My interior light fuse keeps blowing on my 1983 Lincoln continental mark 6


Your car has quite a few things tied into that circuit. I believe it's a 15 amp fuse you are referring to. that is what that circuit is calling for.
I feeds into the headlight switch where it then runs the dash lights, auto delay exit light. Power door locks, illuminated entry module, LT and RT door switches, door lights, lights under seats, glove box light, engine compartment light, trunk light, lights on warning chime, antitheft system, clock(analogue dash only), radio, cigarette lighter lights and courtesy light switch.
Light bulbs can cause fuses to blow. If the fuse blows imediately you have a dead short somewhere. You can buy a circuit breaker to put in place of the fuse and it will take longer to blow than the fuse unless it is a serious short. I would first suspect a bulb. Start removing them 1 X 1 starting with the dome light. Note: also try putting the dome light switch in different positions, the cigarette lighters, remove them. All the bulbs you have easy access to, remove and reinstall if the problem is still there.
You can only go so far before it is going to take a professional to solve the problem. Electrical problems are among the more difficult for an untrained person to diagnose and fix. You can deal with the obvious and simple things, but you can actually do more harm then help if you start digging without knowing what you are doing. EVEN POOR GROUNDING OF A CIRCUIT CAN CAUSE HIGH RESISTANCE AND CAUSE A FUSE TO BLOW.
I hope I have given you some understanding of what is going on. Your car is one of the more complex ones to works on in certain areas.

No dome light


You shorted the interior lamps/or it is burned out. get the car manual and look for where the interior lamp fuse is located to check if its the fuse. IF all the courtesy lights on your doors are working, then your dome light bulb is burnt, check modifiedlife.com for the correct size bulb and order it from an online automotive lighting store for a fancy color or go to your local auto store for the standard bulbs they have available.

2004 PT Cruiser dome light doesn't work


If there is a switch on the dome light, that may be your problem. You would need to remove the assembly and check for voltage coming into the switch using a voltmeter with the door open.
