Stang dome causing problems?

i installed a stang dome yesterday, and after it was installed i tryed playing with the maplights, but the center light would come on with either switch being flipped. if itook the center bulb out neither light would turn on.

fast foward to today. i put some 194 leds in my ohc this morning and then i put it back in, but now neither lights work in my ohc and no lights work in the stang dome.


any suggestions or ideas?

my first guess would be to check your fuses... sometimes you can blow fuses when you plug somethin in when the battery isnt disconnected... that probably isn't it, but thats the quickest/cheapest fix i can think of lol!

the LEDs are polar, take them out an turn them 180 degrees and try again, as for the mustang dome light, you have a bad ground, do you have all 3 bolts in the light? is the ground bolt threading into the roof of the cab?

be VERY careful in tightening that screw, i was on the phone reinstalling mine after the OHC install and forgot the washers i had on it, and now you can see the indent in the outside of the roof of my truck
