I have no brake light/parking lights, I have lost power to the radio, the dash, powerlocks, and interior/dome lights. Could this be that my 50 AMP Fuse(red -parking & interior lights) is blown ?

I can't tell by the picture? Nice picture, by the way.
I usually pick one component that has a problem, look up wiring diagram, check voltage and ground for that component. Sometimes fixing one component or circuit, may or may not fix the others? It just depends on the vehicle?

Speedometer odometerand gas gauge interior lamps not working

There are probably 2 wires for illumination and dimming (grey and brown, if I recall). If either of these are shorted or connected to other wires, problems can occur. BTW, older GM's had the dome lighting tied into the brake light system; No dome light also meant no brake lights. Make sure your brake lights work!!! Check fuses for instrument lighting and brake lights as well.

Make sure these wires are electrically isolated, then check/replace the fuse(s). This should take care of your problem. Good luck!!

99 neon dome light wire diagram

Hooked all wires up right??? Fuse is fine??? Somehow, I do not think this is the case. I wish I had a dollar for every time I have seen this happen....I would be a VERY rich man!

You do not need a dome lamp diagram. You need to replace Fuse #13 (10 Amp) in the Power Distribution Center in the engine compartment. This will make the power return to the PINK wire and get your dome lamps working.

The only way that the RED/WHITE wire is going to have power with the ignition switch off is if either the ignition switch is shorted to power or the RED/WHITE wire got hot enough to melt the insulation in the wire harness and short to another B+ wire. This wire is supposed to have power when the ignition switch is in the RUN and ACC positions. Make sure it is in the OFF position. If this wire still has power, then YES, you probably smoked the wiring harness. If this is the case, the dash should be removed so that full access to the wiring harness can be achieved, allowing a full inspection/repair of ALL of the damage (there are most likely several other wires in the harness that have also been damaged).

1996 Chevy Lumina Car. No dash gage lights. Radio works and has lights.Which fuse should I replace? There isn't one that indicates dash. Service Engine light sometimes comes on for a day or so and then...

It's probably the dimmer switch, chevy is bad for them going out or shorting. It should be on the fuse with the dome light. Try working the dimmer back and forth, see if it works then.

Short ?

the wiring for the dome light, door ajar and radio is most likely crossed with the brake light wires causeing it to turn off power or on when pressing the brakes giving electricity to the lights and then it could be cutting off the power to the radio
