I had the same problem...I was driving one night and my CD player started sliding outta the slot in the dash
. I pushed it back in and ALL of my dash lights and brake lights and marker lights went out. The whole diagnostic panel lit right up. I got home, and checked it. Apparently a CD player wire grounded something and blew the fuse that controls all of these things (weird eh?). Cd player and headlights still worked through all of this tho. Just goes to show ya even if the fuse looks okay it could still be blown. haha....even now the right hand side of my climate control panel goes dark...you just tap on the face to get the lights back....and my power windows still dont work...they did for like 2 seconds once when my friend opened the door
....Ill figure it all out someday when its warmer.
