Instruments dead after changing bulbs
I have a problem with my newly bought Alfa 159 from 2001, and would love some technical assistance. Some of the lights in the dash had been out for quite some time, so I ordered new bulbs and installed them this morning. I changed all the bulbs in the speedo, fuel gauge, clock and temperature gauge. When I put everything back together, and turned on the electrics, everything flashed once, and then went dead.
No instruments working. The car starts perfectly, but the rev counter/speedo/gauges: nothing. No instrument lights either.
I traced the problem to a blown fuse under the steering wheel, above the main fuse box. When I replace the 10 A fuse, it blows immediately when the ignition is turned on.
What can the problem be? Been searching the interwebs, but without luck so far.
