Ok so just to catch you guys all up....I have a 97 mx5 1.8. I just got an aftermarket steering wheel and here comes the airbag light. tried resistors and what not with no luck. So next option rip the entire dash out and unplug the airbag computer. Done. So i thought.....
Today i had no parking lights, no tach, no third brake light, and no blinkers i tried turning on the headlights and the radio shut off. then i was at the gas station and my car wouldnt start. It had a dead battery... pop started it and drove it back to my cousins to put it on a charger. Then i found there was a 20a fuse in the 15a taillight fuse that was completely melted so i put a new 15a in it.
I thought there could have been a short in some of the wiring near my radio so i ripped that out and fixed some connections and heat shrank and wrapped everything (nice and clean lookin
). I also pulled the gauge cluster out to check if a had forgotten to reconnect one of the harnesses, but everything was in order.
I also removed the non functioning alarm system while i was down there....could i have cut something that i shouldnt have while doing that? Is there a different fuse i should check? Could it be a ground problem? I'm really at a loss at this point and ive been looking through forum pages for hours, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
