    Electrical Help!

    Ok yall I need some help. I was rather Ignorant and let a friend hook up a toggle switch to LEDS in the floor for me. I was hooking it up and got a phone call and he took over. This guy has done his own installs and I DID trust him. To make a long story short he shorted something out in the fuse panel. So my power locks, unlock and trunk release switch quit working. So I check internal fuses and then I check external (Under Hood) I find a Big Monster 60 AMP fuse under the hood blown. Ok no big deal went and replaced it. Now all lock, unlock work EXCEPT the driver side. When I push my lock/unlock button it does nothing, when you push the passenger lock/unlock all doors lock EXCEPT mine lol. I have looked and searched to find my issue. The only thing I have not done yet was pull door panel off and put a DMM on the wires inside. I normally do not have a issue finding problem but because I was not beside him when it happened and did not see I have no clue. I replaced all the door lock/unlock related relays in the fuse panel. I have looked over the fuses which I may have overlooked but I doubt that. It is really starting to bug me and I need to get this fixed. Any help or suggestions would be helpful.

    This DID NOT affect the LEDS in any way. They work perfectly. I ARE CONFUSED!

    I know flame me for letting someone else touch my but I can re-assure you NEVER AGAIN WILL THAT HAPPEN!

    I have a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am Se 2.4

    Thanks again for any help!

    Re: Electrical Help!

    that's happened to me and it would usually be the radio fuse, sometimes some other fuses, a real pain in the *** it was with the shorts you sumtimez get, and sometimes you have to take it to your car dealer and have them reprogram your key entry pad thing.

    check the fuses twice, sometimes they dont look blown but are.

    Re: Electrical Help!

    Well I bought a new pad because when I got the car it did not have one. I was going to take it to the dealer and have them program it until this *** did this. I checked all fuses. It has not messed with my radio or any other function in my car.

    hopefully you unhooked your negative battery cable to prevent any more shorts

    Re: Electrical Help!

    Yeah I hope...Thanks man for your input and taking the time to try to help. I am wondering if when he shorted it maybe some or A wire going to the back of the fuse panel burnt up? I am have never pulled a fuse panel though. My switch makes the working sound like it locked everything which it does just not my door. MY LOCK AND MY TRUNK RELEASE IS NOT WORKING!

    Take your car to your dealer and they will fix that for you and look over your car fuses hopefully for a no cost deal. that's what i had to do, since if ****ed everything up when i blew a fuse onetime. it fixed everything back to normal.

    Re: Electrical Help!

    Ok I know my local dealer charges $75 labor fees. I will talk to them and see if they can look at it for me. Hopefully I can get a freebie...
