How can I pinpoint exactly why this is happening? All this just from trying to change a bulb in my trunk.
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?
I added freon while the car was started and had it turned on high/ auto. Still not blowing cold air. I checked to make sure the freon wasn't leaking. Is there a fuse i need to change? Could it be an easy fix or should i take it to the shop?

Thank you..

Have bypassed the ignition switch by installing the relevant value of resistor between switch and bulkhead wiring block. But security light keeps coming on ( steady ) car runs perfect, light will go out while driving for a couple of days, then will come back on. The car will start if the light is on most of the time but every now and then will have wait for 3 minutes for it to reset. Is there a permanent fix without having to buy new TDM.? Have come across a full vats bypass module on the net, anybody know anything about this bypass module and would it be worth buying one. Any help with this problem would appreciated.
