I need a mechanic!
Ok, so I tried a little DIY project over the last three days: installing a backup camera on my wife new CRV. Yes brand new, 2011. I also bought a Gentex mirror so she can view the backup video on it.
It's a little tougher than I thought, but I'm like 90% done. Until I decided to 'test' if the cable had juice. All of a sudden the car's making noise and I knew I have shorted something. I can't start the car, or if it does start it shut off right away. I can't get out of Park. I can't roll up my windows.
So I started checking the fuses and found a blown one. It was a 7.5amp fuse labeled "Meter". I did not check all the fuses but about 75% of them. I replaced said blown fuse and car starts, but now it has a check engine signal. So what's the deal, is it all fixed or is there other problem I don't know about.
Another thing I notice is the anti-theft light on the radio is constantly on, whether the car is alarmed or not. Is this normal?
