If you got voltage across the fuse, the fuse is bad! Check fuses like speedjester recommend.

Did same for several fuse positions and all were hot. I also checked several bulbs and they were ok.


Bill, based on the bold statement above I would suggest that is NOT a good test.
Pull each suspected fuse and check continuity across the fuse with an Ohm meter and I"ll bet you find one is blown.

Thanks, speedjester...

Checked each fuse with a common ground and found one with "0" volts.

New fuse=LIGHTS... I was convinced the fuses were OK but you guys made me look again...
