Q: Dash blows fuses

asked by on

My dash lights keep blowing fuses.

Hello. When this happens it means that there is a short in the circuits that go to your dash lights. It could be in the dash board itself, the wiring going to the dash board, or the bulbs that light up the dashboard. It would be necessary to have your dashboard circuits checked by a certified technician to single out the electrical problem and get it fixed.
