Default LED Problem?

I bought a cheap led kit for my interior and they finally came in. Well I installed the front dome light and all was good until i got to the rear lights. I installed the first rear light with no problem and as I entered the second light all the lights went out....including my door lights, floor lights, and even the light in the glove box. I checked to see if I blew the bulbs by plugging in the old bulbs, and they still don't work. I THINK I checked the right fuse and it was good too but to be safe i checked a bunch of other fuses I thought could be it, and they were good too. So what is my problem?

Secondly you most probably blew a fuse, sometimes bad fuses won't ALWAYS look blown but could be bad, and I say this from experience, first of all EVERYTIME you work on the electrical of the car UNPLUG THE BATTERY, I also speak of this from experience, replace the fuse you think could be wrong and any other as well, I don't have a maxima anymore or else I wouldve checked for you, but if none of the bulbs are working you definitely blew a fuse.

I don't think CHEAP has anything to do with it. It is most likely a fuse. Have you checked fuses in all 3 fuse locations?

Default Re: LED Problem?

Why does everyone keep saying "cheap leds" and "cheap HIDs"??? I have "cheap of both", not a single issue with them...ever!!

Most of the time you can go back to an install issue.

@officerfrasher, I speak from experience I bought cheap led's for the interior once and they were so cheaply built that the contacts on the LED's were poorly soldered causing it to blow fuses so my statement can be correct.

Default Re: LED Problem?

all of the "symptoms" scream fuse but i replaced the fuse and it still doesn't work. Am i looking at the wrong fuse? the two i think it COULD be is the "electronic devices" from the battery or the "room lamp" from the battery. Does anyone know exactly what fuse affects the front, rear, and door lights? it also affected the lights behind the radio controls when i have my headlights on (i have a 2007 maxima se)

Make sure you unplug the LED's that bought before you try the new fuse. Whatever is causing them to blow could still be connected.

Plug in your OEM lights and change the fuse, then see if they work. If they do, you have a bad LED and I suggest not plugging them back in at all.
