Ok, so i have a 91 acura integra ls and it runs great. I have a huge system runs great and 20 farad cap keeps the lights from dimming even a little. all the underglow is mint as well. Ok so now the confusing part, only the three dome lights will not work, seriously, tailights, hids, fogs, speedo cluster, all that stuff works like a charm. The only ones with this problem are the domes, i cant figure this out at all, first diag was fuse but thats fine second was the bulbs itself but there brand new leds that i have tested in a friends car and they work perfectly, so my question is how can i even begin to fix this?

So the fuse was fine to begin with? Or it was blown and you've already replaced it? If you're not getting power to the bulbs and you know they're good then about the only thing you can do is break out the voltmeter and start tracing the wiring back to the source. At some point you will find a point where there IS power and there will be a break/short/unplugged wire somewhere downstream from there.

Did you check the switch for the lights? Is it set to off?

sorry it took so long

ok so yeah the fuse was and has been fine all along with no need to replace it, so i have checked the switches they just dont turn on at all, so i think you deffinately may be right about the wiring. The car was sold to me with interior underglow already installed so all of the wiring looks like a friggen forest, however i have traced those wires and they all trace back to the street glow units so im thinking mabye somewhere underneath the headliner or the plastics it may just be disconnected? Im unsure but i will check it out tuesday and check back in with the results.

Yup, 99% sure its a problem with the custom wiring. That's what happens when amateurs get their hands on butt connectors.
