Please, need help fast

Alright so here's my story. I did the overhead console install not too long ago. that all works. Now today, I decided to get the explorer lighted sunvisors, as the harness for the OHC had the wires for it. I put on the drivers side and tested it out and it worked fine. went and installed passenger side. nothing. went back to drivers side that also no longer worked, but the OHC and everything else lit up. with not enough time to try and fix it I went on to my next mod, changing out the plastic color inlay at my heating controls. Then on my drive home from my grandpa's house, I come to find out that my spedometer is no longer working, but all the other guages are, and the trip meter is no longer turning either. what's going on here? Fuse? didn't hook a wire up right? Any help is GREATLY appreciated

Thanks for the reply. I had to go to work so I thought I would quick ask and see what people thought about it. after work I noticed I had no theft light, dome lights (but OHC was working ), and no wiper function. checked the fuse diagram and seen about fuse 26. checked it and sure enough burnt out. I replaced that and everything is fine again. However my visors work sometimes because I don't have it grounded right and have to address that next.

It sounds like you have them wired though one fuse and it's too much for the little guy.

Yeah, I dunno. I'm not an electrical genius and I followed the how to very closely for the OHC install. I didn't mess with the fuse box or anything, just used the wire taps you know to do that install. so I dunno how I blew it out haha.

Did you wire the OHC and the visors to it? If so that might be too much power for it.
