mine was a fuse. does your clock dim almost to the point to where it looks broken, when the headlights are on? if so, you have the same problem.

My car does that - and I'm sure I checked all the fuses - I'll have to check again. My clock stops when the headlights are on too! I'm about 2 seconds from unplugging the dang thing. It seems to be a bad ground or soemthing. FWIW, my foglights aren't working either.

with all those problems you have, kinda sounds like a short. thats just too many things involved with the electrical system not to be a short or a fuse.

I examined my fuse and couldnt find a problem. However, it burned in a place that was hard to see. I found the problem later and fixed it.
