Not much. I pretty much figured out that my angel eyes was the cause of my short. I was thinking it was the relay. So I went and bought a new one, plugged it and BAM! The wire harness for the angel eyes melted before my eyes. I quickly removed the relay, the melting settled after a minute or so. Now with the AE's completely disconnected (since there is not relay), the interior lights are working, back to normal. Now I have to pull all that angel eye sh!t out.

It's just a dealer reflash to get DRL's right?
