Go through them, turn them all off and then back on. Breakers, once tripped, have to be put in the 'off' position before they can be reset.

check your ciggerette lighter and power point and make sure they are clean. pull the lighter right out and try again. also a 7.5 amp fuse seems very small to run your dash and tail lights. should be a 20 amp fuse.

Cadillac lights won't turn on

No relay that I know of.
On 1970s models the headlight switch had a circuit beaker built into the switch for the headlight circuit.
If you have power to the headlight switch and nothing coming out of the terminal for the headlights the circuit breaker may have died.
You would need to replace the switch.

Changed oil in bike, started right up to move it where i then changed the oil, went to turn the key to the on position, NOTHING, none of the gages come on, fuel pump doesnt prime either.

Hi Richard, and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine run switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, loose, corroded or broken battery cables, especially the "NEGATIVE" cable at both ends (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.
Good luck and have nice a day.

No power is getting to the heater

Check the circuit breaker(s) that feed this AC unit. It may have tripped a beaker in your home's Circuit Breaker Panel.

I took my 1996 nissian maxima into the dealer ship today to get my check engine light checked out. They didnt fix my engine light and plus when i went to go pick up my car my shifter was stuck in park...

Most automatic cars require that the foot brake be applied before the gear selector is allowed to be shifted from the Park position as the unlock signal is taken from the lamp side of the brake light circuit.
It appears that you have an intermittent fault in the brake light switch and replacing it should solve the problem. The switch is located on a bracket under the dash near the top of the brake pedal arm. You could put a bridging wire across the terminals to confirm if the switch is out and the rest of the wiring is OK. If the shift enable and lights then work, replace the switch.
Replacement is as follows:

To remove switch, disconnect wiring, loosen locknut and unscrew switch. Replacement is reverse procedure. To adjust, screw in switch until operating button is fully depressed by pedal arm, tighten locknut and reconnect wires. Check for correct operation of lights. You may have to unscrew switch slightly to get best operation.
