Running lights don't work now?

Hi.I have a 1993 Bounder, My running lights wher working just fine.
Then i thought i would put a few bulbs in two in the front that did not light up on the drivers side.

So i changed out the two bad one's with two of the same new one's and now i have no running lights or rear taile lights..But i do have brake lights and turn singels still. and its light out side so i can't tell right now but it looks like i have no dash lights..but i can check that tonight.. So can any one tell me witch fuse it is and what its called that might blow that would cause this..or better yet what they think it might be..I need any help i can get right now.

Thanks Duane.

I have a 1993 Fleetwood Coronado and has the same thing happen, turned out it was corrosion in the metal bulb socket, some sandpaper and a little dielectric grease and now they all work good.

I would guess it is a fuse labeled "lighting" or "light" or something like that. Maybe near the fuse for brake lights etc. Since I assume you did have taillights but now you don't have taillights I would think it is a fuse also. Could also be in the lighting switch, but my money is on a blown taillight fuse.

The running light are in the chassie fuse and it sounds like a dead short for all of it to go out like that, did you change the whole light out or just the bulbs

Thank's. You are right it was a fuse, And it was one under the dash that was marked (tail lights)

And yes i did replace the hole light not just the bulb, And as i was doing it i did get a spark out of touching the two wires together

So thats what made the fuse blow..Put in a new fuse and every thing is back to working great. So Thanks for all your help.

It is the fuse marked Tail lights or running lights. Most vehicles will have the dash lights wired into the same circuit as the tail lights as a safety thing. It is hard to see your tail lights from the driver's seat, but if your dash lights go off, you will notice it right away.
