    The fuse for my dash lights keeps blowing. Not immediately, but after 10 seconds or so of driving with my lights on it will pop. So its not a huge short circuit, just a loose wire probably. My question is, do you know if anything else goes through that fuse. I don't want to spend a lot of time checking just the dash, when it could be a wire for somthing else. Thanks.

    I am no expert by any means, but I had the same problem, but I had to replace the switch 2ice to come to find out that my dad put this really heavy duty fuse in it (long time ago christmas of 89 and they were stranded) and it melted all the wires together in a ball...and everytime they touched they blew a fuse...
