I was changing a bulb in my trunk. The light lit for a fraction of a second, then nothing. Then I noticed my inside lights and remote door locks stopped working. I checked all the fuses and they were good. That only leaves me to believe that it's a cirquit breaker. Anyone know how I can reset one?

    They reset on their own if there is no draw or short to re-trip them.

    I was hoping it would reset but, as of now it hasn't. I tried disconnecting the battery for about five minutes, I had no luck. I can't imaging if there's a short what it could be. Like I said, everything happened just from trying to put a light bulb in my trunk. I wish I never did that.

    Check and make sure the breaker is getting power to it. I may be bad, temp put a fuse in it if nothing is going through it. The breaker should still kick back in momentarily as it cools and trip again it it's over amp.
