Default Installing Mustang Dome Light

I put the mustang dome light in my ranger today and i cant get it to work. Everytime i replace the fuse it blows it instantly. Do i have the wiring done wrong??

You ran another wire?? IIRC you shouldn't need to run anything, just a direct swap.

If that's happening you've probably grounded you're power wire

If you want the map lights to work without the dome light being on you have to run another wire. I taped into the power wire for the stereo at the passenger side kit panel

he has a 98, it should be a direct swap. its blowing fuses, cause he ran the extra wire.
