Those crazy lights....Dodging tickets! Help!

Yesterday the instrument panel gauge lights, left rear tail light and left front parking light all went out on my 1995 Seville at the same time....!? I checked all of the smaller colored fuses on the left sidewall in the trunk and under the hood, but didn't come across any that need replacing. I've also noticed that my blinker is blinking at a much faster rate than normal. I'm thinking that it might be one of the larger (silver in color) blinker fuses, but cannot locate them (not sure what they are called, I just know what they look like). Are they under the dash or on the firewall on my car and would all of these symptoms be pointing towards one of these blinker fuses or something else? Thanks! ---lack34 :angry:

When a blinker blinks fast its a sign that a bulb is blown, check that bulb..or socket

The MAXI fuses are next to the small fuses under the hood, you have to take the large plastic cover off.

I seem to remember people were also having problems with some of the sockets getting condensation and rusting, so when you check the bulbs you will want to also examine the socket and see if the contacts need to be cleaned up a bit.

Ok, I finally got them working again after spending a few hours on it yesterday. It turns out that my left back light bulb got so hot that the metal-to-metal contact had melted on the bottom of the bulb and touched other contacts that tripped a fuse. The fuse caused my front left parking light to go out and my dash gauge lights to go out. I'm guessing that by the fuse tripping the dash lights, it's Cadillac's intended design to alert the driver that there is a problem with outer vehicle lighting. Thanks for everyone's input, lack34
