Do the lights work with the dash dimmer switch turned all the way up?

No they do not come on even with the dimmer switch all the way up

Double check the CTSY fuse, if the fuse looks okay, test for power at this fuse with a test light or voltmeter. Let me know what you find there.

Everything with the fuse is fine. The cargo light cig lighter and reading lights on each side of the dome all work.

At the floor lighting under the dash, test for power on the orange wire. If you have power on the orange wire, connect a jumper wire from the white wire to a ground and see if the light omes on. Let me know what you find.

I tested for power with a test light and had power from the orange. jumping the white to a ground did nothing. I also tested for power at the dome light socket and had power there.

White wire is the power source, White should be the ground. Connect your test light across from the white to the orange wire and see if the test light comes on. Let me know what you find.

Ive tried everything you have said still no lights. I went out and bought brand new bulbs and fuse just to be sure and still nothing. Have power every where Ive tested. Any more ideas?

If you connect your test light across from the orange to the white wire, does the test light come on?
