    i shorted something a couple times in my truck...nothing to really be concerned with i dont think

    check both fuse blocks (one in the engine bay and one in the cab)

    both times i just popped a fuse...replaced it and told myself to undo the battery every time i mess with wires

    i never learn

    Is your radio working as well? I have an issue w/my 05 that I loose power to the radio,clock,and overhead lights all at once. I have a short in my wire harness that goes to the fuse box under the hood.

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    well its safe to say you learned the lesson of disconnecting the battery haha. I did that in my last truck and drove w/o radio for a week until i realized i was an idiot. checked the fuses and sure enough that was it.

    btw, i was soldering stuff too.

    look at the cover of the interior fuse block...it should have a diagram listing which fuse you need to fix...if not just start pulling until you find the blown one
