Just so you know, my car is a 1990, stock ECU.

Hey guys, I have been staring at a wiring diagram for my car for the last 30 minutes and cannot find the connection I am looking for. It is the light that goes in the cup holder/ash tray. There is a connector right past the center console, that allows you to unplug the whole thing to pull out the arm rest.

Anywho...this is what happened.

Long story made short, the connector was unplugged from the light and the arm rest was out of the car. I was testing some lights and I had a short right there. Who knew kids shouldnt stick a paper clip in things to try and make sparks

So naturally it popped the fuse under the dash, and all the dash lights went dead. So I proceeded to change the fuse, and the lights work again. But here is the problem. The dimmer no longer dims the lights, but the light inside of that still works. The car runs like ****, and keeps throwing check engine lights. It has a really bad stumble, then it throws a CEL. I just dont understand, do those wires go somewhere that would cause this problem? Nothing else has changed.

I appreciate any help, again, I have tried to look at the wiring diagrams but just cant find it.
