No Dash Lights?

The Speedometer and the Tach work fine but I don't have any dash lights. I have checked all fuses in both fuse blocks and cannot find a single blow fuse anywhere. I was installing some LED's and splice into a constant power wire and it accidentally touched a ground and then they went out. If anyone has any idea's what I messed up it'd be greatly appreciated.

Do you have tail lights? Always disconnect battery when doing electrical work!

Try disconnecting the bottery, give it 15 mins and reconnect. probably wont do anything, but you never know. Which power wire did you hit? If you dont know, where was it located? Did you test the fuses with a test light or meter, or just look at them...cuz its usually obvious if theyre blown, but you'll occasionally get one with a hairline crack thats difficult to see.
