Angry Help, My tail lights, dash lights, and park lights dont work

I have a 97 probe that I receantly purchased. The only lights that are come on when I turn on my lights is the head lights.

The tail lights, park lights, fog lights, and dash lights are not working. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this problem?

damn bro sorry totell you but you probably fried a ground wire somehow and it melted with other ones . This hapened to me when I was installing neons and extracting power from the lighter. and through my carelesnes i conected the ground with the power suply for only a few seconds and the ground wire burned all the way to the main harness and then i realized that my dash or tail end lights didn't work. i had to take the radio and ac console out and follow the wire all the way back and replace.
Took about 3 hours. GOOD LUCK

Fuses blow when excess current is running through them, meaning that one of the wires is shorting to ground. Not fun stuff, as it involves tracing the wiring through the car, looking for wires with broken insulation.... DO NOT put a higher rating fuse in there, or anything else to replace the fuse, as that is a textbook way to start a fire.

To the original poster, your problem is a fuse. All those lights are operated off the same fuse. I can't remember which one, unfortunately, and I don't want to dig up my owners manual to find out

I got them to work. I had a wire off at the switch in the turnsignal.
