Default 2003 vanity lights and map lights are out

I just had my sunvisors recovered. They look great, but when I went to reinstall them, I took a small screw driver to take the plug out of the hole above the windshield and accedentaly touch the metal connection. A spark flew out and now no lights on the visors or the map lights on the rearview mirror. I checked the manual but didn't see a fuse just for those lights. I pulled the interior fuse...that was fine. I pulled the rearview mirror/transmission fuse ( 10amp) and that also "looked" fine. Do you think I shortaged out a wire?? Thanks

I suspect you have several other lights out such as the underhood light, the glove box light and the footwell courtsey lights.

Try fuse #2 in the passenger foot well fuse box.

You may have just blown the fuse.
