2005 Explorer XLT Sport
So I tried installing some new LED bulbs in the front reading/map lights before doing any research. I didn't realize I needed to remove the whole console etc. Long story short, I must have grounded/shorted something out with the screw driver I was using to remove the original bulbs. Now I am not getting any power to any of the interior lights or to my radio. I checked the interior fuses #17 and #23 based on the owners manual but both fuses were fine. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Model is a 2005 Explorer XLT Sport V6 4x4

Welcome aboard!! :salute:

I would start by checking all fuses, including those in the Power Distribution Box located under the hood.
