PLEASE help., cluster & small light

I blew something.. Prob a wire touching.. Small light fuse kept blowing at touch of new fuse. Rewired my after market stereo. Small light fuse is now fine. However, my gauge cluster and small lights (gear shifter and such) plus the door chime, are not working. Something is blown, I just don't mnow what. Also on the cluster "srs" and "brake" light stay on. I have checked all fuses. Thank you!! I appriciate your time

Re: PLEASE help., cluster & small light

What were you doing? Installing a new radio or did this problem just start?

Year, and trim?

Re: PLEASE help., cluster & small light

At the moment I was putting LED bulb in my cluster. The stereo had been in the car for about a week at the time.

Re: PLEASE help., cluster & small light

Unplug everything related to the radio, then retry installing the fuse.
Make sure you did not connect anything to any wire marked 'illumination'.


This new LED you were installing in the cluster, did you get the polarity wrong?

Did you smell smoke? Smoke came out of the dash?
Burn a trace off of the cluster circuit board?

Re: PLEASE help., cluster & small light

No burn or smoke smell., don't remember hearing anything either. Not sure as far as trace.... Do small lights (gear shifter) run power through the cluster?

All of the dimmable dash lights do. The dimmer circuitry is in the cluster, a little wiring mistake can wipe it right out.

The first 3 lines of post #5 would be a place to begin


Check the 'meter' fuse too.
