Question Center Dome Light front and rear do not work after LED failure.

2009 G8

Hi, I installed some LED lights for the Dome lights and the map lights. The center dome light LED appeared to have overheated and de-soldered itself and fell down into the enclosure. After that happened I noticed the rear dome light doesn't work along with the front after fixing the bulb. But the map lights still work. I checked every fuse in the rear and front. I have not checked any fuses in the engine. Pin 1 & 2 which is for the center dome light has NO POWER at all when the door is open.

I have the interior lights schematics. It looks like the 1597 PK/BK wire is the bad one. It shows it going to a fuse labeled CF5 or CF6 its hard to read. But looks like the Map lights are also on the same fuse..... After the fuse it goes to the computer Pin #18.

Any ideas? I hope the computer didn't get fried for that circuit.

Did you look in the owners manual section that covers fuses and their purpose and use a voltmeter to check for power going to the fuses

Yes I'm pretty sure I know how fuses work and their purpose.

Fuse F11 Interior Lamps
But when removed Map lights still work. So I don't know what Interior lamps they are talking about in the manual. Tested F11 and has 12v.
