So I'm pretty sure I blew the fuse to all of my interior lights yesterday.
Somehow shorted it while installing some LED interiors.
Anyone know which fuse it is before I got hunting through all of them?
Any help is appreciated ;).
TY

It's the 10A Interior Lamp fuse just below the On/Off switch. A spare fuse and the removal tool can be found in the fuse box next to the battery.

Really, no kidding?!? I would have never thought that the car already has spare fuses, that's awesome. 10A meaning location on the fuse box panel itself or type of fuse? Also, which ON/OFF switch and where, under the hood you mean?
Thanks a buch for the info Matrix!

Yeah the fuse you want to replace is in the dash fuse box, and the spare fuses and tool are in the engine fuse box.

Just blew a 20 Fuse to the HID's.
WHY?!? Why me? Is it because it's 26F? Is it because I hit a big old bump in the road that rattled my cabin? *sigh*

Actually, blowing a fuse in a car that is this new if you have not modified anything is a little disconcerting.

It could just be a fluke or a bad fuse. If you blow another fuse you might have a problem and I would take it in to the dealer well before the 1yr/12,000 mile "everything" warranty runs out.

Interior electrical systems can be hard to troubleshoot and very expensive to replace.

Not modified anything? Its clearly stated that an LED interior kit and HIDs are being used. Its actually quite common to blow a fuse when changing the bulbs to LEDs. You should disconnect the battery while doing them. The HIDs blowing a fuse can be an indication of a problem and Id diagnos that first or you'll keep blowing fuses.

Oops, my bad.

My experience with LED's is that while they draw less current each, they can have a fair amount of resistance and if you chain a bunch of them together in series they can draw a lot of current. Some LED kits have parallel wiring like the ones on printed circuit mylar strips or Christmas tree lights to get around this.

Led's all still work, no problems there. This is just for the headlights, hids, I bet.
I'm not that worried, yet, just seems odd. ;)
