    I'm a newbie and just installed a set of DDM 6000K xenon lights and it was simple and looks great!
    So I decided to try the Map light's on with the dome light and now i dont have any lights.......... I put everything back to the way it was except the diode is still attached to the map light. Also my clock is dim as well as not having a dome or map lights. Can anyone help me out?? :(

    If that diode were backwards do you think it would affect the lights??
    And the punching idea is sounding good about now!

    Yes a diode is directional. You have to put it in the right direction.
