Interior light not working

I was trying to put in led strips to replace the crappy two light bulbs. They were working fine but then my friend decided he wanted to see what would happen if he touched positive to negative and needless to say now they don't work. We checked all the fuses and none of then are blown. What do could the problem be?

Leds do not blow out if the polarity is reversed in DC, it is one of the good things about them. Its a fuse problem because your friend shorted the circuit. It is probably a mini fuse under the hood.

Are they switched on with the stock dimmer switch? Or a switch that you wired in yourself? I think the stock switch fuse is just below the dash on the firewall. Not too sure on the location, its been a while. It will be a 5 or 10 amp fuse.
