    test each side of the switch with a test light, find a good ground under the dash and clamp the aligator clip to it, then just prob each side of the switch with the point of the tester. the side that lights the tester is live the other is not.

    none. i have been doing alot to this burb. I only got it a few weeks ago, and this it one of the things i had on the list. when i looked under the dash i had to spend a few days taking out all the wires and lights left on it from the fire dept. after all the wires and lights and boxs and fuss panels and etc. i had three wires still hanging down, so i checked and it was one of them. the red one. i had a little luck.

    Hey, it was already wired for the lights and siren? You could have hooked those up and gotten through some red lights a whole lot quicker if you had left that wiring in place!

    I've got an annoying short in the wife's 99 cavaliar so the cig lighter keeps going out. I go through a fuse every 8 week or so, just not quite often enough to have to hunt down the problem.
