No dash or tail lights and one head light dimmer

No dash or tail lights and one head light dimmer
2000 pontiac sunfire gt 2.4L about 240,000KM central Canada driven.
Every time that I turn the headlight switch from off to daytime or headlights it blows the EXT LP fuse. I have replaced the headlight switch with no change, checked the connection and grounding point under the battery tray with no faults found. At this point I am not sure where to look aside from a complete re-wiring of the lightning system. Any help is appreciated.

RE: No dash or tail lights and one head light dimmer
I would do a little investigating before completely rewiring everything. When you turn the switch on you are putting power to all of the lights. Headlights and all parking lights along with the license plate light(s). If there was any type of body work or body damage, that would be a suspect spot to look for a damaged wire shorting out. If the car has a trunk, that is another suspect spot. You put something in there and it slides around and shorts out wires. Just start at one point; the firewall may-be, and start visually following the wires looking for any type of rubbing, melting, corrosion, or pinching. You will probably find it quicker than you think.

I hope that helps. Please let us know what you find.
