Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. Check with a circuit tester.

Fuse for dash board lights and tail lites keeps blowing


You may have a damaged wire leading to one of the lights that keeps blowing.
Not fun, but you have to chase down the wiring to everything that keeps blowing out.

No daytime running light no interior dash light


I am betting there are no tail lights as well , as they are on the same circuit as the cluster lights.

Change the fuse.
Note ; it could also be a broken filement in one of the light bulbs in this circuit causing a dirrect short , should the fuse blow right away after you've changed it.

DOES THE DIMMER SWITCH FOR DASH LIGHTS NOT WORKING HAVE ANY THING TO DO WITH TAIL LIGHTS AND PARKING LIGHTS NOT WORKING


Automobile companies make the dash lights stop working to let you know that the tail lights are out. Usually it is just an indication that you have blown a tail light fuse. First make sure that you do not just have the dimmer turned down on the dash lights. But if the dash and tail lights are out, first check the fuse block to see if the fuse for the tail lights has blown. If you change the fuse and it blows right away you will have to start searching for electrical shorts.
Another tell is when you notice that the turn signals are flashing faster than normal. This means that one or more of your turn signal bulbs has burned out.

OLDS SILOUTTE BLOWING FUSE


Check the rear tail light boards if there is any water then they cause a lot of problems. Try just touching the brake and have someone look. If you can see rev or turn light comes on dim with the tail lights replace both rear tail light boards

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.
