That sounds like there maybe damaged wires or that there is a wiring fault. the new fuse you put in wasn't a bigger fuse then it is meant to have in it is it? cause if so instead of the fuse blowing the wires may melt together and damage parts or catch on fire etc.

Start by getting a multimeter with a current coil clamp. Put around one battery cable and measure current leaking out.

Even after two years, you could have a bad battery

Dash and radio lights don't work at night. They are on during the day. 2003 Chev Impala. Have checked all the fuses.


The same thing happens on my 2003 Impala. I found that my dimmer switch has an intermittent failure where sometimes the dash lights go out even with the headlights on.
If I wiggle the dimmer just right, the dash, radio, steering wheel, door locks, and every other light comes on (when the headlights are on). My fix was to mount my Garmin on the steering column in front of the speedometer so when the lights go out I know how fast I'm going. A replacement dimmer (or bypassing the current one and adding a resistor) should take care of it.

It sounds like you blew fuses other than just the main fuse. Hooking the battery up wrong can destroy major components as well, like the starter, battery, Computer, moduals. You might need a good shop....

I have a 87 jeep comanche. auto. transfered to 4x4. my dash light wont work, i believe its a dead short because i raised the fuse number and it still blew. my question is, were would be the most likel


When say "dash light" I'm assuming you mean the nighttime illumination for instruments like the speedometer for example. If your truck has a stand-alone digital clock (not part of the radio) that has a feed wire from the instrument panel lights for it to dim at night, otherwise it'd be too bright. That could be a source of a short. The radio also makes use of the dash illumination as well, making the digital display darken at night and lighting the radio's controls and face plate at night, another source of a short in this circuit. Do not ever increase fuse ratings when replacing a fuse, that defeats the safety purpose of the proper fuse being able to blow, opening the circuit which prevents wires overheating and potentially catching fire. You don't want to go there. If you have recently installed another radio the wiring may be wrong. This happened a LOT on Pontiac Firebird's and TransAm's. People often wrongly assumed all black wires are ground and ended up grounding the dash illumination input. This blew the dash light fuse and made the retracting headlight doors stay up.

sounds like a bad ignition switch, which is most likely what blew the fuse the first time, the igniton switch does'nt have anything to do with the lights on the dash or headlights, but it will affect the radio and the starting of the car

no the horn and dome light are on their own circuit with there own fuse the horn is a (red) and the dome light has a 15 amp(yellow) fuse. either one will be located in the fuse block under the dash or in the power distribution box under the hood. you will find other info in the owners manuel in the glove box
