DASH LIGHTS OUT

2006 Kia Spectra • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic •

I had my center console out in a 2006 spectra 5, to replace radio, when I put it back I accidentally reversed the plugs for the defroster and the 4way flasher. The first time I went to use the flasher, as soon as I pressed the button, the dash lights went out. I then checked behind the console and corrected the problem. Both switches are working normally, as is the vehicle. I could not find a blown fuse in dash box, what could be the solution.

A fuse or the flasher unit.

The flasher unit is now working normally, as is the rear defroster.

Which fuse would have blown? That would be hooked up to these switches and the cluster lights?

The other possibility is the dimmer switch is bad, try wiggling it.
