Map light fix?


Recommended Posts

Seems pretty unbelieveable that the whole overhead would have to be replaced for a tiny light switch. I sure don't want to take mine down but there are a few screws in some of the compartments up there. I'd feel better practicing on/exploring a junkyard piece. That's what I'd do.Now the rest of the electronics up there is a different matter.Let us know how you make out. Take pictures!

--- Update to the previous post...

while we are in the same area.i have a problem with the map light on the driverside. it has a dull glow when the truck is running.it works fine when needed but doesnt turn off all the way.i also have a couple of rain drops coming off the console after a heavy rain.so im thinking the marker lights are leaking.i dont know where else the rain would come in. any ideas? thanks robin

Welcome to the family. As for the roof clearance lights I would careful remove each one and re-seal them with silicone. Then I would consider carefully romoving the console and double checking all the wiring to the bulbs and switches for corrded/rusted connections. The over headlighting has a constant +12V so all thats needed is the ground. So if there has be water getting in it might have a partial ground causing the glow.Pink wire should be +12V and the yellow wire is the ground trigger back to the headlight switch or door pins switches... (Pretty sure of my colors from memory... :rolleyes:)
