Hello and welcome to Just Answer.

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will try to assist you with your lighting.

The circuit for the remote powers the lights from a different power supply.

Have you checked the fuse for the interior lighting?
If not, check it for power and burning.

Here is the diagram of the circuit. The location of the fuse is in the diagram.

If the fuse checks out OK,let me know and I will return to assist you to pinpoint th repair.

Thank you.

Can u tell me what fuse number to check. There are several listed as lighting
According to the diagram it is in the central Junction box, Fuse F2.4 15 amp.
Do you have a 12 volt test lamp?

The central junction box is under the dash on the left side.
Here is a location diagram and a fuse ID.

Thanks....In the owners manual the main fuse box under the dash list it as position 4 (verse 2.4) with the following description.....Power locks w/RKE, Illuminated entry, Warning chime, Modified vehicle, Main light switch,Courtesy lamps

The Power locks w/RKE, Illuminated entry, Warning chime.....WORKs
The Main light switch and Courtesy lamps DOES NOT
Not sure what the Modified vehicle

So not how it could be the fuse....I can check it again though. Any other thoughts?


New expert. We need a multi meter to check the CJB fuse F2-4 (15 amp) to make sure it is good and to see how many volts. Next we need to check splice s221(under dash drivers side) it is the wire feed off the CJB fuse (LG/YL wire) for the main light switch, LF door ajar switch and RF switch.
