The fuse which controls my dashboard lights, gas gauge and heat gauge as well as my turn signals keeps blowing out whenever I start my car? I have replaced the fuse twice, but whenever I start my car, about 1 second after I hear an audible click and the fuse goes out, none of my other fuses are effected by this.

What if you just turn the key to the run position without starting it?

The fuse still goes even if I just turn the key to run, and I do not have a test light.

Your going to need a test light I was going to have you check and see if you had a dead short to that fuse.

U need a wiring diagram for that circut. So u can trace this short. Unplug everything and see where the shorted componant or wire is at. This is where u start. Ty for using 2carpros

Thats where the test light would help to isolate the short with a visual feed back.
