grrrrrr my favorite , thats a of a horse ofdifferent color , this is controled by a DIM module (dash integration module) located behind the rt dash . so that could be bad and there is a yellow wire with a splice under the left front seat that goes bad. we need to see if theres power on that yellow wire under the seat when the lights go out
