Ok, ya your underglow must be fucked up.

So, the rest of the parking lights, headlights, brake lights, and signals still work fine, right?

All of that does not work fine. Once that fuse blew last night, my gauge cluster, parking, signal, fogs, possible heads and my tails all went out. But I unhooked the underglow wires and as I did, I saw some uncovered wires and also some wires stripped from the insulation that could of possibly be touching some metal or some sort so every time I would turn the switch, it would probably be shorting out. But I'm about to test it out right now, fingers crossed.

Well did you disconnect the underglows where you tied them into the lighter plug circuit?

Yes and still happening. So I went to Walmart and picked up a multimeter and a few extra fuses. My dad and I are going to work on it and find the problem tomorrow. If we can't find it, I have no choice but to take it to the shop and let them find the problem. Don't want to do that but if it comes down to it, then so be it :/

If you have the fuse out (or blown), what stops working? Because nothing else should be connected to or operating off of that fuse.

When that fuse is out all my lights will not turn on. If I hit the headlight switch to turn on my parking lights on, nothing. But I can put switch them to put my headlights on. The tail lights do turn on when in running mode nor will it flash when braking. And also the gauge cluster won't light up. So I'm thinking I have one rare truck where that fuse slot controls all my lights??? Crazy I know.

No you definately don't a rare differently wired truck. You have some hacked up wiring somewhere crossing multiple circuits. The instrument lights get their power from the parking light circuit too which is why they aren't lighting up. The headlights on a different circuit all together which is why they DO work.

Keep digging through your add-on wiring. Something is wrong.

Okay man. Thank you for all your help. My dad is going to dig deep when I'm at work and if he can't find it, then I'll dig for it. And if we both can't find it, I'm taking it to the shop . But I'll let you know what happens. Thanks again!
