Default Trouble Shooting: Key fob and interior lights not working

Long story short i did a headliner swap on my 14wrx. Took the old one out and put the new one in. After i swapped the key fob dosent work and neither do the dome lights. The only things that were unplugged were the dome lights and they were plugged back in. I am puzzled as to what could have happened. Could it be some fuses? Something accidentally got unplugged?? Any insight is helpful. Would hate to have to take the headliner off again if it dosent have to be.

I think it is the fuse #2 in the panel under the hood (not SBF-2). Power to the dome light is always present. You most likely grounded the power lead for the dome light.

Eh? Why would you suggest fuse 2?

Dome/spot lamp power circuit flows from Fuse 8 under hood, to the 10a fuse in the fuse and relay block under the dash (pins 3/4, so it's the 2nd one over).

That also powers a pin in the BIU. I'm surprised other things aren't malfunctioning.


Fuse 2 is a 25a that feeds the main fan relay.

Thanks for the notice CosmoTheCat. I don't have service data for the recent models and I was going off info from previous years.
