When you say map lights, do you mean the one at the grab handles?

What fuse numbers were blown?

What bulb were you working on, stop, signal, etc. and what side?

I will get back to you on the numbers. It was a 15 amp in the engine compartment and a 10 amp in the interior of the car on the passenger side. The interior one I don’t think had anything to do with it it was the cigarette lighter. Anyway the problem started when I was changing a bulb in the tailgate section interior and the clip broke and shorted to ground I am assuming Saw slight spark checked the fuses 15 amp was blown changed it and now my overhead pushbutton map lights rear pushbutton passenger lights by the grab handle all not working. More info to follow. Pouring in Ny so cant look now

If you know what fuses were blown, why can't you go back to those fuse boxes and look at the charts?

It appears that you want to make it easier for yourself.

Hi, I had said it was pouring rain out in previous post sorry for misunderstanding
F13 and F41 were blown. Let me add i just purchased ml320 and changing bulb on tailgate interior light lead to problem.

Interior lights get power from F1f13, map lights in the interior mirror F1f31.

Have you played with any other bulbs?
