Make sure that the fuse that u are replaceimg it with is the same fuse ie same amps that it calls for it should be on the fuse box and if this does not do the trick you may have a short somewhere or a loose wire ar a blown bulb check all of these ok and if no luck consult a local dealer or repair shop for more help

Tail lights, instrument panel lights, and license plate lights not working. Fuse blows immediately when changed.


that line on that fuse is shorted, the fuse saved the fire.
we use an ampclamp DC ammeter to find the wire that is shorted
and the actual point of short.

the park-tail circuit (tail fuse, right) is the most complex of all.
20 lamps inside car, and many out side, it is the hardest to find of all shorts. but not with the tool
first check for damage behind all park lamps
i bet the fuse blows in park (1st click) not head lights. right?
side lamps the 4 front rear park lamps, some call it tail its not really tail now, was in 1920 ,not now. park is everywhere.
but the fuses can be marked tails, for fun .
imagine, calling the 2 front lamps tails. and are on .(my on going joke)
sidelamps,
the inside lamps are many too.
all dimmable lamps. so turn the dimmer down to zero and see if fuse blows now, NO?, bingo.

the best way to fix this is , visual inspections for collision damage or wire hacks in the cab.
then the fuse is pulled and circuit breaker inserted 15amp
(they sell em)
then we connent the ammeter to the wire (output of fues)
i push the switch and amps goes to infinity and the CB trips
if follow the cables, and find what line is shorted.

i missed one problem
on the rear or front 4 corners of the car may be twist lock blubs.
like 1157 or? these love to short. push in lamps never short.well not the lamp actual.
in not sure what lamps the 06 uses, but replace the brass based lamps. (in park tail ckt)

1993 Dodge B250 Ram Van (Conversion) -- I have no rear running lights. The brake lights, turn signal lights and hazards all work fine. While driving through rain, I hit a big puddle. Some time later...


something in the wire setup has gottn wet and caused it to short out . i would recomend ordering a new wiring harness for the engine compartment. and when re connection everything use di eletcritc grease in them so they will not do it again.

It is very much important to take care of your vehicle's service routine to keep it in good condition. If your rear and panel lights are damage then you should change it immediately by mechanics.

Did you check fuses under hood as well? You may want to check if power is getting to the headlight switch. That controls all the lights that quit working.
