Default dome light, map light, keyless entry will not work

I was doing some stereo wiring (splicing/crimping) in the dash and I think i might have shorted something. I know...I know I shoulda disconnected the battery but I was on my lunch break and bored so I didnt do it.

The dome light, the map lights, and the keyless entry now do not work. The power door locks will work if I use the buttons inside the car though. I do not have any alarm/security system.

I checked every single fuse in the car, even the ones that it wouldnt be associated with and all of them are good.

Any ideas??

Oh and the power mirror both sides are not working. The cigarrette outlet works which is on the same fuse. That stopped working a while ago!

Please help!

Gotta be a fuse somewhere. Did you check both fuse boxes? If you have a test light check the fuses that way rather then visually, it's possible for one to be blown and still look ok to the eye.

I had the same problem.

I would check the fuses again.

If it isn't a fuse, then there is a break somewhere in your splices (i don't know much about electricity). Once I found my bad slice, things worked fine for me.

The fuse you are looking for is in the under hood fuse box. I think its labled clock. HTH

It turns out I didnt see the "clock" fuse under the hood because it was dark out last night and I was in a hurry. I found it this morning in daylight, lo and behold, it had blown the 15amp fuse. I replaced it and everything works again!

Except for the power mirrors. I will pull up the console to see if the harness came loose.
