    I was hooking up my 4X4 lighted switch and cup holder LEDs when I guess something touched that shouldn't have. I have no radio lights or AC dial lights. I have unhooked everything and still no lights. Before I try the reinstall I need to fix the radio and AC lights. I think when I stripped the wires on the AC connection they may have touched. How do I fix this, Please help, I know its a strange combination but I am at my wits end. Thanks and all suggestions are welcomed.

    Check the 7.5 amp fuse in the fuse panel by your left knee. I have shorted that one out a few times while installing my stereo...

    If that last fix didn't work, check each light. When I purchased my used 2006, the AC and Fan dial lights did not work. I pulled both lights(they have a weird circuit board type base) and they were burned out. Had to order from dealer at around $9-10 bucks each. I looked all over trying to find them at other locations (Radio Shack, car parts stores, foreign part stores, etc.) without any success. One parts dealer had seen them, but was unable to order.

    And I'm not saying this to be a dick, but next time if you are doing electrical work, you really should disconnect the battery.
    I know it's an extra step that a lot of people skip, but it can prevent these sorts of things.

    Finally got it right today and this has to be one of the best interior MODs I have done. For those who like me thought naw I wont have to unhook the battery for this little job. WRONG I let the two green wires touch and lost mt AC and radio lights. After some great help here on TW I finally found the fuse. Its the 7.5 tail light fuse next to your left knee. I kept skipping that fuse cause I thought that one wouldnt matter, well I was wrong and got this AM, quickly replaced, rewired everything in less than 20 minutes and BINGO lights everywhere. (by the way I did unhook the battery this time.) Thanks to ALL and maybe someone can reference this in the future...
