1999 sentra gxe dont have tail lights or dash lights. Was blowing 10 amp fuses until someone put in a 15 amp fuse. now even with new fuses got no rears or dashlights
That was my first thought, too. But it would not "fry" the whole circuit, so don't give up yet, using the higher fuse may have just cost you one more step of finding the problem.
So is it still blowing a 10 amp fuse? Either way what you really need is someone with a voltmeter or multi-meter to track down where the power has been lost. Most cars have the tail (or park lights) and the dash illumination lights on the same circuit, therefore using the same fuse, so an electrician could start by checking if the fuse has power with tail light switch on, then checking the wire going up to the dash, and how the tail lights wire is spliced with that or separately from the fuse and then routed to the rear.
It always helps to have a wiring diagram, sometimes absolutely necessary with involved circuits. Your problem should be simpler, not so much to look after, although the colors of the tail light wires may be needed. The person with the voltmeter can follow the wires that way, sometimes you have to pull a harness apart to find the wires you need. It may take a little time, but anyone who knows how to use a voltmeter should be able to find the problem. It does take time, sometimes, alas.
