No dash or tail lights- 1997 accord SE

2 weeks ago had head gasket replaced

About a week ago the headlight warning buzzer/chime stopped working just long enough for me to leave lights on and drain battery

Several days ago the dash lights and tail lights stopped working

I checked ALL interior and under hood fuses

I learned later that the "small light " 15 amp fuse under hood is linked to these lights

This fuse was blown, but once replaced immediately blows again and again

I removed the light dimmer switch and disconnected same - this was mentioned on some other forum

Removal of this switch now permits the 15 amp under hood small light fuse to remain " intact"

I remain unclear if this light dimmer switch is the problem and if the headlight on buzzer/chime alert is a clue to the tail light dash light problem

I did check all tail light bulbs and what wiring I could see and all appears fine

STOCK RADIO works fine


I'm like Cinderella and have to return home before sun goes down until I figure out this mess

Big thanks

There must be a short somewhere. Here's the chart of the connectors & what they control. Maybe ones in the engine bay got loosened with the work done.
