I added after market fog lights to my 2000 Montero sport. I must have blown a fuse. The dome lights and reading lights do not work now. I looked up the fuse (5 amp) in the oweners manual, but when I opened the fuse box (under the dash on the drivers side) it was not the same as listed in the manual nor can I find a location for the intera lights.
I don't know if this will be the same as our 2003 Montero, but I saw this when looking for a solution to our problem and thought I would mention it. The fuse for the dome light in our Montero is in the fuse box under the hood, next to the battery. It also had a weird yellow box around that fuse and another. I finally figured out that if you pull up very ******* the yellow box around those two fuses that it will lift partially up and you can get the fuse out (had to use pliers to get a good enough grip to pull it up first time). If yours is the same, you'll understand when you see it.

You blew a fuse or relay. Check the fuses in the fuse panel, if those are good, check for burnt and\or "popped"-"blown" relays. Relays are usually located in a (black) box under the hood. (some are a different color, like red). Remove the cover, and on the inside (or out) you will find a diagram of the relay placement. Locate the desired relay and if it ls clear, take not as to whether its got a split in the "diode". You'll see it. If not clear, buy or find a fuse tester. Pull the relay and touch any two prongs until the light comes on, on the tester. If light stays off, the relay is bad. Chances are its simply a fuse, as fuses will blow before a relay.
It is probaly a fuse that blew, that would cause all the dash lights to not work, Are they factory installed frog lights or after market fog lights, If there after market fog lights you should have a relay hook up to the wireing for them, if you are not useing a relay with them when he hit the switch for them, It probaly over lopaded the circut, End thats what blew the fuse, Allso with after market fog lights Allso you should have a fuse connected into the hot wire going to the battery.
there is a fuse under the hood by your battery take the black cover off there will be relays, large wide fuse's, and small fuse with clear tops this fuse is a 40 amp green check it but read the top cover to find the right one good luck.
