2000 Honda Accord LX
I bought both bulbs, replaced clock bulb. Upon turning it 1/4 turn to secure it, a wisp of smoke appeared and entire instrument panel and power windows failed, along with not being able to shift out of park. Car still started OK, but couldn't drive.
I found some help regarding fuse replacement, followed it, and everything went back to normal.
Then I needed to replace the battery, and since replacing it, now only the driver's door power window goes up/down, whether using driver's control or individual door control switch.
1. What would cause the replacement of the bulb to blow a fuse?
2. Could this be related to the power window issue, or would that more likely be from the battery replacement?
I have not tried to replace the clock bulb again (I re-inserted the old bulb when it smoked) and I never attempted to replace the odometer/trip meter bulb since this happened.
