I have no power to my interior lights, radio memory, power

Customer Question

I have no power to my interior lights, radio memory, power mirrors. I have traced it to the fuse panel under the dash, but not sure which fuse it may be, or if the problem originates before that. its a 1994 Dakota 2wd v-6
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: consistant
JA: Are you fixing your Dakota yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes I had lost all marker and tail lights, I found that when a previous owner had wired in a trailer light pigtail it had caused A SHORT WHICH MELTED A TRERMINAL IN THE HEADLIGHT switch . I replaced it and the markers and tails work great. the other lights were out before along with the markers. they all worke when I got the trk in June. I had removed the dash panel to fix a vacuum line to the ac control . after I replaced every thing is when the problem began
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: not that I can think of
