Most vehicle manufacturers use the same fuse for the dashboard lights, and tail lights. It is an attempt to make sure you know that something is wrong, and replace the tail light fuse when you don't have tail lights. It is also a method that doesn't seem to always work.

Is the odemeter connected to the fuse box?

Odometer Fuse Box RelationshipThat depends on the type of odometer. For example, a mechanical odometer which is driven by a mechanical cable will NOT have any connection to the fuse box OTHER than for lighting, IF the odometer has a light inside of it.On the other hand, if the odometer is of the digital electronic type, it will, in a remote manner, be connected to a fuse which is usually a fuse designated for the "Instrument Panel." In this case, the digital odometer is usually built into/on the Instrument Panel Printed Circuit Board [PCB], and thus will be connected to the fuse box via the PCB wiring harness.
