Blew a couple fuses when installing interior led lights

Hey Everyone,

So I was replacing my lights in my car with the F1 Authaus Euphoria Kit, and I guess I blew some fuses. Even after trying to change the polarity and every combination, a couple of lights still do not turn on at all (not even with the stock bulbs).

Anyone have a list for fuses to replace?

Specifically, the trunk fuse, glove box fuse, and the front and rear dome center lights, and the side lights on the rear center dome.

I know.. that's a lot. I messed up haha!

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

The glove and trunk light is on the same circuit. They tend to blow out during replacement of any bulbs. Check this Fuse Guide courtesy of Jz:

In regards to the center dome, you have to make sure the metal pins from the T10 adaptor base makes contact within the bulb holder itself for a connection. When inserting the bulb holder back into the dome unit, there are these metal tabs that lock into dome unit that have to make contact as well against/inside the dome unit. They tend to slide upwards.

If its the fuse I think you blew, you will notice your radio is not working either (at least that's what happened in my car) the fuse panel is behind the glove box. Have fun! there are spare fuses in there.

Hey Mike, thanks for the quick response!

I fixed the glove and trunk lights, but I still can't get the big center dome lights to work. I checked a couple fuses and none of them were burnt out...

Any idea as to what the problem could be? I tried wiggling the wire and the bulb holder in every direction but to no avail...

Edit: PS, other than those two lights everything else looks great!!

Update: Fixed it! Looks absolutely gorgeous and one of the best mods I have done so far. Highly recommend it.

I guess you just have to keep playing with the pins on it like you said. I went back to my car and all of the sudden the rear one worked so I did the same thing to the front and it worked.

Thanks Mike!
