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...

Check your fuses. If you didn't disconnect your battery before working on it, you could have blown the fuse by grounding the connection.

Hmmm... well I didn't disconnect the battery.

In the morning I will be sure to go out there and check out the fuses. How can I tell if I blew the fuse?

Pull it out, look inside the plastic center, if you see metal connecting the two points the fuse is good, if its broken or burned, replace it.

BTW, it "should" be a 7.5 amp, in location 35.

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!
