You probably lost the ground circuit-because if its short to ground it will blow the fuse-also could be an open circuit to the T/lites. Start by removing carpet and look for a quick disconnect going back to the lites. Test for power.
BTW do you have parking lites up front?[/Quote:60ed3eba6c]
Yes, I have all the other lights as well. I'll take a gander at the under-carpet wiring. Also, when I left work yesterday my battery was dead. I got a jump and as I was waiting the handles on the jumper cables began to melt! I disconnected the batteries and looked around and finally found the headlights were pulling a lot of amps and they weren't on!
In any event, I got the car started and drove about a mile when the transmission gave a rather loud hiccup and died right in the middle of Houston traffic. I cruised to a gas station where I parked and eventually got the car home later that evening.
I am as perplexed as a man can be about all this. It seems the new problem just sort of popped up (don't know if that's possible) all on it's own.
Thanks for the suggestions; I'll give it a try and let you know what I find.
