i changed the interior lights with LED...but they wont turn on, I tried swapping them out with the old ones and they wont turn on? maybe it is a fuse, not sure. can someone please answer? now i have no lights in my car?
Which ones? Do you have a multimeter or a test light? Test the light contacts and/or the fuse contacts. Are you sure you have the right fuse? Did you disconnect and reconnect the battery (There are a few different MICUs that will wreak havoc on electronics if they sense a disturbance). I'm not in town or else I would look at that circuit in the manuals. In the owners manual, what else shares that circuit? If anything else is shared, is it working?
i opened the hood, grabbed the fuse remover, went under the steering wheel in the inside of the car. I then pulled fused 16 (interior lights, i replaced it with the extra fuse in the case no luck. I then put back the originals lights for the maps and closed my car.
I wish I had my books... There is another fuse bank on the other side of the car... Check that one. Make sure the dome master is in the on position (simple, but who knows). How about the lights in the cargo area? There's a switch for those. Are those working? Make sure all of the switches are in the on or door position.
I want to say it's behind the dash molding, but DO NOT take my word for it. I am going off memory and I have worked on a couple of cars lately... I'd hate to confuse them. Check the manual; it should show one relay box in the engine compartment and three fuse boxes; one in the engine compartment, one by the driver's left foot or knee and the other by the front passenger's right foot or knee. Let me know what you find. Good luck.
Fuse # 16 (Interior Lights) is a 7.5 Amp fuse and is located in the engine compartment fuse box. Did you try that one? PM me with your phone number... I'll call ya if you wish and walk you through a few more... Namely Passengers side fuse box fuse # 6 (Interior Lights) 7.5 Amp.
Wait one... Go back and read my reply just before this one... There's two more worth checking... Maybe one or two more after that. You found the passenger fuse location, right. Let me know. I found a copy of the manual online and can walk you through if need be.
