    long story short. the other day i was wiring up 4 off road lights on the front of my truck. was trying to get creative by wiring them up t my highbeams. made a mistake on the wiring and accidentally wired the lowbeams and highbeams together. possibly toasted the relay?? anyway. now my truck only has one headlight on lowbeam (the left one). my windows wont roll down or up, abs light is on, ebrake light is on, and i dont have my temp sensor (in cab), clutch start bypass button doesnt light up, fogs still work (i did have the foglight on anytime mod) what the hell happened?? $$ to whoever solves this!!

    Its sounding like you toasted the relay and maybe more. I would take it to an auto electric garage and have them fix. I did something like this in my old car, and it screwed all kinds of things up. If I wouldnt have taken it to them, I never would have figured it out.

    You may have fixed already, but if not: 1st undo or remove the wiring you intended. then check ALL fuses and power side of fuse blocks. you may see the problem or even smell if something fried. Unfortunately our "Comas" are more intricate than ever... if its not in plain site you probably have to take to the dealer.:sick: alot of this can be be time consuming and if you're like me well just wanna get and drive the bad boy.... P.S. Good Luck!
