Hi, my name is ***** ***** you have a voltmeter or test light?
ok, in the fuse box under the dash, there is a accessory delay relay, do you know where this is?
this relay is in the fuse box under the dash, not in the engine compartment
let me know when you locate it,Tim
ok, remove the relay, and on th ebottom side of the relay, there will be numbers stamped on the relay, identifying each pin, they should be 30,85,86 and 87, then you need to check the socket where the relay plus in, you should have power on pins30 and 85, do you?
let me know,Tim
not yet, the relay supplies all the things that do not work, but we need to see if the pin 30n and 85 have power, before we replace anything,Tim
you may have to drop the fuse box to access it,Tim
we can check a few [power supplies for that relay, it may be easier than dropping the box?
ok, in the fuse box under the hood, there is a circuit breaker 47, can you check this circuit breaker, and also in the fuse bix under the dash, fuse 17 also goes to this relay, can you check both the circuit breaker and the fuse, and see if you have power on both sides of each?
this is not a relay, it is a circuit breaker, in th diagram below, it is labled "F1.62"
yes, check that and see if power is on both sides?
ok, now we need to go back and see if both the pins 30 and 85 have power at the relay, I know its tight, but we need to know,Tim
Another thing we can try, at the dome light assembly, there are 4 wires, how many if any have power?
OK, DID YOUHAVE A CHANCE TO CHECK THE 4 WIRES AT THE OVERHEAD CONSOLE AND SEE HOW MANY HAD POWER?
yes , I will be on and off all day long,Tim
ok, the power from those come from the battery saver relay, if the 17 fuse is good, then the batery saver relay is getting power on 2 wires, but not getting a ground from the instrument cluster, can you remove the relay and see if the 86 has a good ground,Tim
the battery saver relay may be labled 1,2,3 and 4, is it?
Ok, pin 2 should have good ground, with the key on?
ok, if you have power 1 and 3 of the battery saver rely, and a good ground on the 2 pin, but no power going out to the dome light assembly, then you have a bad relay, or a open wire inside the fuse box,Tim
Glad you got it fixed,Tim
