holy no punctuation dude. Yeah I am no mechanical expert, but if you are replacing non led lights with led lights, I'm not sure if they would work anyway. Sounds like you blew a circuit or something though. If you can find which circuit runs those lights, see if it your burned it out and replace it.

check the fuse? if it popped like that you probably had the lights on when you plugged em in, so it sparked or something. i've done alot of swapping to LEDs and it's not a problem. they're actually better for the car cause they use SO much less power. i'd check fuses etc

Yes, check the fuse for the interior lights first. Everything else works normally?

Interior lights are polarity sensitive so you probably popped a fuse somewhere along the line.
