Did you check all your fuses? Have you done any work on the car recently? Ie. stereo install, wire tuck, ANY electrical.

fuses are good. i did rewire my stock stereo in around the time it started, thats about it.

my friend said it could be one of the boxes on the back of the tail light or something with the dash dimmer control on the dash...

The dimmer dash COULD be it or you cut a wire under the dash you werent supposed to.

I would just go back thru and make sure you didnt cut the wire for your lights to use it as a switched 12v supply.

I had no dash lights and no running tails on my Isuzu P'up and it was a fuse that kept popping. Wrecked it soon after so I never got to find out the issue but it had to do with the wiring I'm sure.

First thing I learned when I was taking automotive classes at my local tech college was to CHECK ALL FUSES. And to NEVER replace a fuse with a higher amperage fuse. Putting a higher amperage fuse can cause problems in that circuit and possibly burn up whatever its powering. If its a 10 amp fuse, only replace it with a 10 amp fuse. If it pops again, find a wiring diagram and source your problem.

crazymikey is very helpful crazymikey is very helpful
In your engine bay fuse panel, check the fuse "SMALL LIGHT". This is usually the cause of the problem.

Your corners/tails will still work if your gauge illumination plug is not connected.

The small light fuse is for your running lights, and I think also to do with the gauge cluster and dome/courtesy lights.

It is common for this fuse to blow after fiddling with your stereo. I have had it happen to me several times, so I'll almost betcha that's your problem.

I had this problem too after I put a new radio in. The kid that owned my girls car before wired it to where the signal lights are on when turning the car on and when I wired in the new radio noticed two wires where crossed and I uncrossed them. So i went back and crossed them again
