Electrical Help - Interior Lighting / Radio
Hi guys,

Long time reader, first time poster - I've tried searching, but wondering if anybody might be able to help.

I have a peculiar problem with my interior electrics. The guy I bought it from had added small LED lights adjacent to the standard interior lighting, that appear to have bypassed the standard lighting - ie using the wiring to power the new, brighter LED lights. Due to them being installed pretty shonkily, a red and black wire that feed into/from the LED light came into contact with each other.

There was a small spark, and the interior lighting no longer works, and neither does the (aftermarket) radio - although dash lighting, electric windows etc are fully operational. Everything was fully operational prior to this.

I've replaced the fuse, to no avail.

It's a 2000 X 1.9D Forte.

Where would be the next place to look for a solution?

Thanks a lot,

Sure you replaced the right fuse , Fuse 11 on mine.

Yep - fuse number 11, 5A one. It's odd because everything else on that fuse works perfectly other than the radio / lighting...
What about the fuse on the back of the radio?

Depending on the way it was wired it may have been wired through it .

Ah okay - will take a look at that one too. Thanks!

Are there any other common things it might be? All worked fine before (I guess) the lighting circuit shorted out.

Thought I would have learned by now...
