I couldn't find a thread on this issue. Am I the lucky first with this problem? :weird:

I discovered my car has the EVIC system Friday and shortly after I viewed all of the screens.. this list of things stopped working:

Trunk release (FOB & Button on dash)
Turn signal indicators in gauge cluster
Parking brake indicator
Cup holder lighting
Dome lights
Gauge needles do not light up

I've pulled every fuse for inspection and they appeared good. There are probably more things that are not working, but after only owning it for 2 weeks, I am not sure what should all be lit up. 2010 RT 6-speed. I drove it 1200 miles this weekend and nothing else seems to be malfunctioning.

Any ideas?

I just checked the fuses again in better lighting.

Fuse #17 in the trunk. 20amp mini. I put a new fuse in and it instantly blows. Now at least I have something more specific to search for!

Have you checked if there is any wiring or loose connection issues?

Sounds like a hot's touching ground...it could be a wire or an internal hot in a given component on that circuit...chances of a pinched wire, not common but possible, chances of a loose ground is very common...chances of a reject circuit board getting passed is even more likely, you said it happened after fiddling with the EVIC, More then likely the tech will start his diagnosis with that circuit, may be a bum board in there...Good luck

Well, unsure if I found the cause, but:

When I did the resonator delete I did not reinstall the ground strap on the passenger side pipe. I just put it back on, inserted a new fuse, and all is good.
