Electrical Grimlans

So my park lights dont work nor do my gauge lights

I did not touch anything today. I just noticed while getting out of the truck and I locked it the park lights didnt flash

Fuse only blows if I put a lower size in there.

The only thing in common that comes to mind right off would be the headlamp switch itself.

I dont see why that would be the problem.

The in the passenger kick panel is the one making the noise and popping.

Could that fuse just be lose? I put 3 different fuses in there and all did the same thing.

How could you tighten a fuse up?

The popping your getting as you insert the fuse is due to something drawing a load on the circuit, i.e., headlamp switch is on, etc. Does it actually blow the fuse or just pop as you install it?

Well I have the headlight switch on. and If I wiggle the fuse the lights come one and off as I wiggle it.

I shouldn't be able to wiggle it that much though right

No, the fuse should not be loose in its plug. Unfortunately, the only way I know to properly tighten it up would be to remove the clips from the backside of the block.

LOL yes...however, I'd recommend wearing a Trojan when you re-insert it for personnel protection.
