I tried to change the door lights on my 1999 Honda Accord EX V6. I took off the plastic cover on one of the driver’s side of the door, dome on the front, dome on the back, and one of the driver’s visor’s cover. However, I only removed the bulb(looks like a small fuse), from the visor, and the bulb from the door on the driver’s side.
I went to autozone, they gave me a set of LED lights for the door, and I tried to install one, but one of the clips that keeps the bulb in place was squeezed too tight so I could not insert the new bulb in.
When I placed the bulb against the clips, it would light up, but it would not stay in place on account of the tight clip not allowing me to insert it all the way, so I prodded the clip open a little bit with a small screwdriver, but when I did so, the screwdriver touched the left and right clips at the same time and I saw a spark. Now, NONE of the interior lights work(except for the dashboard), even when I use the old/non-LED bulb.
This is my first time trying to make modifications to my car, so I thought I would start with something easy, but look what happened. I am an amateur when it comes to cars, but if I had to guess, I think I blew some sort of fuse when I connected the screwdriver to the two clips. How to I fix this issue, so all my interior lights work again.
Thank you guys in advance.
