How do you find a short in an 95 Chevrolet pick up that blows fuse for th tail lights and dash lights when you turn the lights on?
Try removing the tailight fixtures from the rear of the truck (GM had some problems with these) Replace fuse and see if it blows again. If so problem may be a dead short in the dash panel or in the switch itself. If it doesn't blow check and/or replace rear tailight fixtures

I have a 1993 Ford Explorer XLT and when I turn on the headlights the fuse for the dash lights blows out do i have a short if so where.?
Usually. Most GM vehicles put the instrument cluster and the tail lights on the same fuse so that if the tail light fuse blows you'll know something is wrong and hopefully get it repaired. The headlight switch uses the same fuse circuit to run both the tail lights and the dash lights. If the fuse is ok, check the headlight switch.
You have a short to ground somewhere. Start at each lamp socket, then the wiring and look for problems. Possible bad headlight switch. Also in checking shorts, don't forget the license plate light in addition to all marker lights. Dash lights normally go out when the tail light fuse blows as dash lights are fused from the tail light circut.
How do you find a short in an 97 Nissan Sentra that blows the fuse for the tail lights and dash lights when you turn the lights on?
Try removing bulbs from all exterior lights turn switch on to see if fuse blows--if not replace one bulb at a time to determine where problem is. If fuse blows without bulbs could very well be switch "dead shorted" to ground IM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM SO IF YOU FIGURE IT OUT PLEASE LET ME KNOW AT GODLIVERKILLA@YAHOO.COM A mechanic told me that the switch that is on the column is usually the problem. Cost…
1992 Buick Roadmaster the tail lights nor dash lights work tried replacing the fuse the lights and the switch and nothing seems to help Fuse just blows What else could be the problem?
If the fuse keeps blowing, there is a short somewhere. Since the dash and tail lights both go through the headlight switch, I would check the wires from the switch connection all the way to the tail lights, and the dash lights. Somewhere, a wire is crushed to ground or something like that. Make sure your switch is property connected and is a good switch! Good luck!

What is the problem when the dashboard light on a 1991 Dodge Dakota will not turn on with the lights?
Usually a fuse. when the fuse blows the dash lights AND tail lights dont work. If your tail lights work and dash lights dont, check bulbs, if all blown at once you may have a shorting problem. If bulbs are good you may have a bad connection. Tracing wires is a big job. Get yourself a good quality test light.
When you turn on the headlight switch, you are turning on 2 circuits. The headlights are on one circuit and the other circuit is the tail lights and the dash lights. The tail lights are on a separate fuse and the dash lights feed off that circuit with usually a 5 amp fuse also. Sometimes when the dash lights don't work, the dash light fuse is blown. Sometimes the tail light fuse blows and it…
