    Installed Flush Signals Now Headlights Won't Light Up?

    hello

    After I installed a pair of flush mount turn signals for the front the headlights stopped working so I checked the fuse and it seems that the fuse did not blow.

    I replaced the headlight fuse with a new one still no good, swapped the turn signal fuse with the headlight fuse (15a) and the fuse that was not working on the headlights is working fine with the blinkers but the one originally in the blinkers now in the fuse for the headlights still won't light the head lights up.

    Anyone know what the problem might be?

    thanks

    Got to give you credit for honesty. Most of us would have made up some lame story if pressed.
    I've had a few of those "Wtf did I just do" moments.

    Nice to hear I am not the only one with "Bone head" moments.

    Glad it worked out for you.
