    Sounds like you have already done it but check all the wiring, including in the engine bay for shorts. Also check that the globes you are using are the correct wattage and do not exceed the rating of the fuse.

    yeah i pelled out the tacho and the how fast your going cluster, checked the globes they were all good, followed the wire form ground to fuse and from switch to fuse, no problems, put in a bigger amp fuse and it the lights worked for like 5 seconds then blew. its got me stumped usually i can fix shit pretty easy without troubles but this has got me. is there anychance the actual switch could be fucked? and that is what is shorting out the fuse?

    i think what the bloke above is suggesting is to check engine bay wiring aswel (all wiring to headlights and the bulbs as mentioned)

    never just put a bigger fuse in. ever.

    and yeh could easily be the switch, pull it out and open it up?

    the brown ae71 car i have for sale is doing this, on the interior/parker 15a circuit. if you find a fix let me know. I disconnected the rear lights (parkers brake indicators) and it still blew but its something you could try on your car. it is one of the plugs near the fusebox in the passenger side kick panel.
