5.9 Interior light helppp!

Yesterday i replaced all of the interior lights in my 5.9 with LEDs.
As i was changing the light in my glove box and replacing it with an LED it caused all of my interior lights to go out and stop working except for the lights on the side of the passenger and drivers side door. I put the regular interior light bulb back in the glove box b/c i thought maybe the new bulb was causing the problem.
Now none of my interior lights are working.

Does anyone know what happend or how to fix the problem?

Interior light problem

The interior lights were working right before i started messing around with the glovebox light. As soon as i unplugged it they stopped working and now wont go on again?

Im not sure were the fuze is?
Do you think that could be the problem even though they were working right before i did it.

thanks

Maybe you should avoid doing anything having to do with your electrical system...

97 TJ Sport - 4.0/HP D30 w ARB/8.8 w LS/4.88s; 35s and flat fenders on 2.5 lift

84 CJ7; frame off restoration in progress.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

Eh addin led's to change the color of the dash and stuff is hardly worth avoiding..

Next time unplugg your battery while your doing electical work to avoid problems of shorting while your changing things like that
