I installed a set of vent lights today, I used the dimmer wire for power. A little while I went to check that the lights were working and I blew the inst. panel fuse and replaced it. Now none of my gauge lights work as well as my HVAC lights and fog lights. The fuse is not blowing anymore. Could I have messed up the dimmer and fog light switch somehow.

Yea i would say u have killed the dimmer switch...

Get a used one from the junk yard.... Better then paying for new.

If the overhead light still comes on with the dimmer switch, would the dash lights not working still be because of the dimmer switch?
And now the fogs are working again. wtf

Well the dome light will work but the dimmer part of the switch could have a burn out wire or the a gauge cluster fuse is blowin.

Have u check all ur fuse's...??????
