HELP! glove compartment light not working

I recently replaced my head unit and now discovered that when I open my glove compartment, the light does not come on.

I have checked the bulb and it is still good. Did I disconnect the power by accidently while installing the head unit? If so, how and where can I check the power wire for this light?

You just blew a fuse that serves your glove compartment light, cigar lighter, trunk light , etc.
Inspect your fuses and find and repalce the blown one. If all the fuses are intact, then there was wiring that didn't get reconnected.

You might want to check it doesn't come on only when the headlamps are also on. I can't remember if this is the case or not.

I have checked fuses, wiring, etc...

I took out the wood cover but can't remove the climate control box to get to the bulb. I can see the bulb and it is not working.

When I tried to remove the climate control box, the side with the temperature dial seemed stuck.

Oops wrong post for reply...

I will check the wiring by removing the head unit out.

But please do read the above post and help me with that also.)
