My dome light is suddenly not working! Please help!

Alright, so I ordered a new blue LED dome light and had it installed today. After about 2 hours I took the dome light down to mess around with the two side map bulbs, and then all the sudden they just shut off. I don't think I did anything, but I don't really have any idea. Now the dome light and the two side map lights won't turn on and I have no idea what the problem is. The two things are connected to the lights good... and I'm really confused.

Could someone help here, or gimme a clue about whats going on?

Thanks, and +Rep will definitely be given out to ANYTHING that helps...

-Spyder

I would say check the fuse and make sure the dome light is connected tightly. If that doesn't work try putting your old bulbs back in and see if it works then.

You need to check fuse #35. Sounds like you blew it.

Alright guys, turns out the fuse blew. So I went to Advance Auto Parts and picked up some more 7.5a fuses and put one in. Now its working good, but we'll have to see how long it lasts.

Thanks for everything guys, +Rep!
