    Installing my cabin leds, didn't bother to disconnect the fuse for the lights, and boom, I go dark after switching a few bulbs.

    I'm looking at the fuse box and I have no idea which fuse is for the interior lights on a 2016. There is no more "dome" fuse. I read somewhere it was the pwr outlet fuse, but I pulled that and it was fine. I even went through and pulled every other fuse that could possibly have the lights associated with them and they were all fine. I'm at a loss and super annoyed.

    Is there something else I could have messed up?

    Bingo. It's a 7.5 amp low profile fuse. Mine did not have a spare so you may need to go to the parts store for one.

    When you find the fuse box, driver side , take the top off and flip it over. You will see the diagram.

    You may have knocked the prongs out of whack in the dome light(s).

    ^^^^This. What Steve said! I would also recommend picking up a cheap test light for testing fuses without having to remove them. Makes life easier when you need to check them...

    Okay, day 2 of on and off trying to fix my interior bulbs. I replaced all of them with led's with no problem until I went to put in the vanity festoons. Lights out. I have done the work in my manuals and csuvipers replies, and others on this site. Have looked in the cabin fuse box at all power 15 amp fuses and none are blown. I guess the next step is under the hood? Thanks for any advice

    Ok, while I've got my heels dug in. All of these F'n manuals for our beautiful babies and no detailed diagram of fuse box? Most of us don't need to go to the stealership for a easy fix

    Well I guess I screwed that up too! I'll try the the way the thread says. I'm sure I saw that different somewhere else:hattip:

    Roger,

    Try under the hood, as I pictured above. The only issue may be is that my truck didn't have a spare 7.5 fuse. You can find them at Walmart or Auto Parts store.

    See the pics above.

    Steve is right, it's a 7.5 amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood.

    Holy crap Steve. I thought I kept my engine bay fairly clean. I could eat a sandwich off your fuse box or battery. Nice job on that for a 2015...:thumbsup:

    I blew my fuse when I replaced mine too. Again it blew again today. I ended up needing to take the reflective shields out of the light fixtures and filing the opening for the bulbs out to make them bigger. The LED bulbs were longer and a little wider than the stock bulbs. It fixed my issue.
