Dash light help, burn smell
I have a 2003 TJ automatic and about 2 weeks ago I installed red leds and everything was working find. So today I put new carpet inside the jeep. I had all the seats and center console off. After I was done installing all the carpet, seats and center console, I took the jeep out for a drive. Driving back I turned my lights on and all sudden, I see half of my dash lights on, and this smell like burning wire. Then all might dash and ac light went off. Still I could smell something burning around the dash area. Now I have no dash light and the speakers don't work. I can turn the dimmer switch and it turns the dome lights on and off. My head lights work and so does my fog lights. I looked at the fuse and is good. What can have happened? Can the wire going to the automatic transmission light that lights up the park,reverse, ect have shorted while I was removing and installing the center console? Can It be the dimmer switch?
