W126 Console Lighting

Hey guys,

So I had the time off today and decided to change out the bulbs in my center console that were out; for future reference, they are 74 LL, I bought Sylvanias; 5.43 for 2 of em.

I get in there and change everything out, but now, NONE of the lights turn on with my headlamp switch, and two exterior lamps no longer turn on, the rear side indicators (where its red on the lens on a US model and just orange on a Euro.)

What the heck did I do wrong? Also, the buzzer no longer goes off if I have the door open and the light switch on. Interestingly, the buzzer still goes off if I dont have my seatbelt in.


Any ideas?

Thanks guys,

Carlen

Word for the Wise

Alright, I feel like a real heel right now, but I just basically ripped apart my entire console and cluster and headlamp switch trying to figure it out, and uh...

It was fuse 11. I didnt read it correctly, and thought it was 6, but turns out 11 was the culprit. Now all of them light up except the headlamp switch... Probably put the bulb in backwards or something dumb like that.


Good luck out there, with the world full of fuses waiting to trick you!
