Thread: Electrical fits
04-15-2012, 10:16 PM #1
Today I went help my brother move his dish so he can get some sort reception. When I got in I noticed my courtesy lights were on, which is normal but as I was going down the road, I noticed they didn't go off so I opened my door and closed it then tried the switches to make them go off and the switches both click but the lights stay on. The only way I can get them to go off is by pulling the fuse but then the Cargo Lamp On message comes on in the message center. I'd like to get this fixed but I am no electrician and I am clueless as where to start.

Ouch ... and ugh. That sounds like a short somewhere but I wouldn't have the foggiest where to look.

Anyone know if there is a real way to fix this other than pull the fuse haha? I have LEDs for courtesy lights but the dome light is a regular light bulb so I think I can just pull the bulb and let the LEDs go without really running down the battery. Its not the relay or the headlight switch as far as I know. Any other help is appreciated. Like to get this fixed before I have to take my "girlfriend" to her prom haha
