alright...issues with my 2001 LS
Ok, so I got a little antsy and I decided to do my own instrument cluster mod and changed all my lamps to blue 8000mcd Blue LEDs. Everything was soldered in, re-assembled, and was working great. Had the dash lights working for about 10 min. then shut everything off. But the interior/courtesy lamps come on when I dial it all the way to theright and it "clicks"
Soooooo, I got a little bold and I decided to do my Int. light/headlight/dimmer dial next. Well, all was going well, until I heard a "BOING", and a spring went flying. Greeeeeeeat. Well, after I found the tiny spring, I began dis-assembling the plug location to return it to it's rightful location. It was suprisingly easy to re-assemble (both sets of conductor tabs are back in place from the white piece to the black piece), and figured I'll just wait on doing this one for right now.
I plugged everything back in, double-checked myself, and turned the lights on.
Well, the Int. lights came on for about a split second then, went out. WTH??? So, I figured I blew a fuse, because I still hear the relay on the pass. side fusebox "click" each time I turn the lights on. So, I broke out the Fluke and tested every fuse inside and under the hood (I think?) and found no burnt/blown fuses.
What am I missing here? For clarification, where is my dash/instrumentation lighting fuse located? Is it a fuse at all? everything is re-assembled properly, I just need to figure out what I'm missing, cause it's driving me batty. lol Thanks
The dimmer still controls the odometer dimming, yes. I may have fubar'd the headlight switch, but everything in that assembly is mechanical so what should I be looking for? Did I burn out the 30A relay? is there a jumper I can put on the harness to test out the interior instrument lights?
