Re: lights on dash and fogs lights not working.

have you done any work to the car recently ? could you have nicked/screwed a part of the loom is what im aiming at while fitting a new HU for example,
The fact the fuse is blowing instantly is good as you should be able to find it easier then 1 that blows here or there.

sounds like a wire maybe has rubbed through insulation somewhere or has come loose check the integrity of all associated wiring to be sure
