Ok in an attempt to reattach my steering column shaft (the palstic around the hazard lights) I noticed that my interior lights suddenly went off. Smartlock isnt working either (cant lock using keypad). What can I do to fix this now? Cheers

like I said in my pm mate, find out why it blew if you can, if you have a wire squished or cut you'll only blow it again, or risk shorting somehting other than the fuse!
