update: my dash board lights (radio and gear selector as well) went out yet their fuse was not blown, i soon realized that they came back on when i pushed on the brakes, however after doing this a few times they got dimmer and dimmer and then would not go on at all. i blew the fuse to my left tail light. this morning i replaced the fuse and tried all combinations of lights and brakes and nothing blew the fuse, hopefully this was a fluke thing however having read that many people have this problem with circuts other than just the left tail light i was hoping someone had found the source of the problem. hope this helps anyone! thanks

hey friend, try putting in a new fuse,leave the car in park.put the headlights on. dash lights and rear left tail lights work? if they do now put he car in reverse does the fuse blow and you lose everything? this is the situation i was having with my 93 sts. drove me crazy . i am not sure exactly where the problem lay but try these steps; change any all tail light sockets that don't work or may have water in them . you can make the universal types from the auto parts store work with some tinkering. make sure each has the same number of wires as your originals. then check all the grounds in your trunk for rust/ tightness , inside at left and right tail light under cloth cover . then go inside the car shake around your main wire harness under the steering wheel area. the panel under your steerin wheel will pop out easily for better access.i think the short is in this area here most likely. but i don't know for sure because i fixed all these things things then put my lights on and in gear no problems. this is a nerve racker. i have been there. if none of that works pry up the gear shift area wood trim piece under stereo move around those wires too. by the way if your car has an aftermarket alarm like mine ,check that wiring too. good luck
