Dash lights and headlight wipers stopped working

I have a 1988 Mercedes 420 SEL and tonight on the ride home while my headlights were on I used my windshield washers. My dash and console lights stopped working as well as my headlight wipers. Any ideas?

#1 troubleshooting rule: check the fuse

Thanks for the info. It was the fuse but it blows again as soon as it is replaced and the lights are turned on. Any clue?

Headlight Washer


Disconnect the plug from the headlight washer pump, turn lights on and activate the windshield washer. If fuse does not blow this will isolate the wiring circuits where the fault lies.
