Blown fuse?

While replacing 2 led lights, sent to me under warranty, on the front cap of my Wildcat 275 CKX, inadvertantly touched 2 wires together while testing before putting buttoning up. Where is the fuse that I blew? There are no breakers tripped and no fuses blown in the main breaker box. Is there a secondary fuse box or possibly an in line fuse somewhere I'm overlooking. Surely its not inside the front cap, although at this point it wouldn't surprise me if it was. Thanks for your help. Feeling frustrated in middle Tennessee.

Are these the running lights or the hitching lights?

If they're the hitching lights, there should be a fuse near the battery for those. It could be an inline fuse tucked inside the wire loom.

Never mind I found it. It was a 5 amp fuse in the front cargo bay. They more or less look good lights. Not really a purpose other than to look pretty when on.

My 295RSX front cap running lights are only powered when the trailer is plugged into my truck. I suspect your blown fuse MAY be in your tow vehicle.

Edit: Sorry I was late posting. I lost my connection. Looks like I was wrong anyway!!

On our unit they're called hitch lights, but if it's at night and you turn them on while you're trying to hitch up, all they do is blind you.

2 of them were led hitch lights and the other 2 on the front are pretty blue led look pretty lights. This is all new to me so I'm slowly but surely getting the hang of it. This forum is a great help with great people.

Ain't that the truth!
Mine do the same.
Never use them as 'hitch' lights but do occasionally turn them on for additional outside lighting while camped.
