    You're shorting it out or overloading that circuit - get a voltmeter/tester and make sure you've got the right wires and aren't crimping them together thus shorting them out. What kind of light is it you're installing?

    just the basic bolt light--i think i found my problem but i wont know until i get home from work--i was using the brown wire as my hot wire because that appeared to be the original license plate wire--but i just saw a thread that listed the black/white tracer as my ground and the ehite/black tracer as my hot wire so ima try that--but heres a pic of the lites im using

    ok got it figured out--jus switched the ground to a screw versus a ground wire
