Has anyone had a problem with Fuse 6 (Right Side Parking Lights and License Plate Lights)? Mine keeps blowing and I have checked all bulbs and still wants to blow. It really happens when you start the car and the auto headlights turn on at the same time. Any assistance on this? Thanks.

Welcome to SCoA! :)

Do your instrument panel lights go out as well? Can you disable the auto lights and see if the fuse still blows?

You may want to make sure you have to correct fuse installed in the #6 slot. A fuse with too low an amperage will blow every time the circuit is powered.

It is a 7.5a fuse. It is just like the left side. All bulbs work for 6 - 10 seconds and then it blows again. I am at a loss with it.

Check any dual filament bulbs carefully by removing them from the sockets. If a couple of pins are somehow shorted this could create a parallel resistance to ground, whose equivalent resistance low enough to blow the fuse....
