2007 ZX3 Dome & Map light not working....

I was in the middle of installing these LEDs (http://www.oznium.com/flexible-5mm-led-dome) for my ZX3 when all of the sudden the dome light went out and the power to the map lights didn't work either. My first thought was that maybe I blew one of the fuses?? I'm not sure what else it could be. If someone could point me in the right direction as to what my next move should be I wold greatly appreciate it. Thank You!

There is a fuse on the back side of the interior fuse panel that may have blown. I beleive it's a 20 amp. The fuse panel has to be loosened to gain access. There are 2 bolts ( 8 or 10 mm ) that have to be removed and 2 clips have to be pushed in. Then you can twist the panel around and check the fuse. It's a big PITA, but that's the only way to check.

Thanks for that man! I don't have the manual anymore for my ZX3. Where exactly is the fuse panel located?

Lower left where your left knee is while driving. Pop off the access panel and towards the firewall.

Thanks again! Hopefully its the fuse. Is there anything else that it could possibly be?

When mine weren't working, this was the only problem I found. Check the other fuses though. Before you loosen the panel. There is info on the back of the access panel. Just look for the symbol with any lighting reference, and check accordingly.
