I have a 2005 Equinox LT and recently the dash lights, console lights, fog lamps, and rear driving lights went out. Thinking just a fuse I replaced it but it blew right after. I then tried the Park Lamp relay but that did nothing to help. Any help or advice.

Have you contacted your local dealership? There are many benefits to taking a vehicle to your local dealership. You can guarantee that technicians are ASE certified and that the parts come with a GM parts warranty. For these reasons, I would recommend taking the vehicle to your local dealership to be diagnosed. They should be able to assist you further and have a plan for addressing the issue. I can also look into this issue further. In order to do so, I will need some more specific information from you. If you could please send me your full name, address, phone number, the VIN for the vehicle, and current mileage, I will be able to take further steps. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me directly. Thank you.

Tricia, GM Customer Service.

Sounds like you have a dead short in the lighting circuit. If you know electrical circuits, then you can chance it down, but otherwise, go to a dealer. You can spend a lot of time chasing it down, and still not get anyplace. Have you made any changes to your lighting recently? If so, that is the 1st place to look.

I did take it to the dealership but it was $100 to just look at it plus the cost of the part and probably labor. Thank you for the advice though.
