hey- how much did your dealer say it was going to cost (if they hadn't covered the parts)? mine is saying 1600 PLUS 430 if plugs and coils need to be replaced due to damage from the intake manifold issue. (i have 56k on my car, bought brand new in 03)

I'm not sure it would be the fuse. A similar thing happened to my old Corolla when it got bumped by another car; the light switch got affected.
In any case the list of fuses are in the manual on page 8-41, such as:
Position 14 = HAZARD 15 Amps Hazard warning flashers
Position 20 = HEAD-R 15 Amps Headlight-right
Position 21 = HEAD-L 15 Amps Headlight-left
#1412 of 1420 License plate screws are stripped

i just got a used Mazda protege 5, and I can't get the rear license plate to come off. I believe the screws are stripped. Do I need to remove the rear hatch cover? If so, how would I go about doing that?

Are you sure they just aren't those special "anti-theft" heads on the screws that need a certain type of driver?
