Put a new starter in my Jeep

I posted a couple days ago asking about some advice about a starter. Ended up replacing it on the Jeep commander which was a bitch cause I had to take my drive shaft and the wheel well plate off.

So it took me pretty long to do. And two things i’m concerned about: When I went back to torque the bolts (6 on each end) for the drive shaft, I think I over torqued the back ones and may have rounded them a bit. Couldnt really find the actual torque value online anywhere. So I just set the front ones way lower(like 20ft pounds) not sure if thats enough.

Then after hooking the battery back up and driving it. For some reason my back dome light won’t turn off. Even after turning all lights off double checking all doors and hatches were closed. Possible that I shorted something?
