This problem is so common when replacing factory radio with aftermarket, you will need to remove the radio and unplug it, next use a test light and probe the wires you are using for the radio, whats happening is that the factory radio had lights inside it that were controled by the headlight switch so they light up when the lights are used and you could dim or brighten them, some cars may use two or three wires to light up a radio you will need to locte them and not use them, most people use them as a ground and then when lights are turned on they turn into power wires so test each wire and turn light on and see if they get power the one that do power up with the lights cut and tape them up also any wire you are not using make sure they are taped up and not touching, good day, hope this is helpful.

I put new radio in my 96 jeep grand Cherokee now dash lights don't work


dash back lights, you mean, not the warning lamps in cluster
the dash back lamps run off a dimmer (park ckt)
and if you wire this line wrong called dial light line.
you blow up the dimmer or just the fuse for it.
check fuses.
do not ground that wire, at radio ever.
the schematic is free. posted here over 100 times.
here it is 1 more time, click wiring, radio
chapter 8w (wiring)
see page 47 (Radio)

blew up fuse 12 did you?
radio conn. C1 pin 4.
do not ground this wire or boom.... (you let smoke out)

My 2006 dodge ram 2500 diesel keeps blowing fuse


The Internal light is normally tied to your dash lights on a factory installed radio. Find the main p[lug on the back of the radio and unplug it then try it with a new fuse if it still blows then it is the wiring if it does not blow the fuse when the radio is unplugged, chances are the radio is bad and will have to be repaired or replaced.

Fuse keeps blowing to my dash guages in my 95 gmc sierra why?


have you recently installed a new radio ? I have knowen people to install radiosincorectly the dim wire behind the radio shows as a earth. however when you turn headlights on this becomes a positive. if you have wired this wire to your sterio this is whyyour dash lights & internal cab light etc keep blowing.. if your wondering why sterio still works is because its earthed through the aerial or mounting bolts.

All the lights work except the dash lights. The 5 amp fuses keep blowing and if I put a 15 amp it doesnt blow but no dash lights


DASH HAS A SHORT CIRCUIT.DASH NEED REPLACING BUT CHECK FOR SHORTS IN THE WIRES TO DASH.DONT PUT A LARGER AMP FUSE IN A CIRCUIT TO KEEP FROM BLOWING FUSE BECAUSE IF FUSE DONT BLOW WIRES GET HOT IN THE CIRCUIT THAT HAS A SHORT IN IT AND CAUSE A CAR FIRE.

I just put a touch screen deck into my 1995 6.5 2500 gmc and an amp and sub and then my dash lights keep blowing fuses and now it just wont do anything anymore


There is a wire that comes from the dash lights and lights up the radio at night. You probably hooked that wire up wrong, causing the fuse to keep blowing and now maybe the dash lights are toast from repeatedly being shorted.

1998 dodge neon ignition feed fuse in the car keeps blowing


Are you using the same power feed from the old radio? If so, your new radio may require a higher current fuse. Check the manufacturers information the came with the custom radio and make certain the current (amps) required is the same.
If the new radio has a higher power amplifier for increased audio, it will blow a low rated fuse.
On the other hand, it sounds as though you may have pinched the power feed wire in the radio bracket, trim cover or have it resting agaist a sharp bracket. So when you put the car in drive, the dash flexes enough to cause the short.
Does it blow the fuse when you shift to reverse?
let me know.
Regards,
