Hi there! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I think I can help you resolve your problem!
Can I have the last 8 digits of the vin number please?
It is a 2003 last 8 of the VIN are 3H575619
Thanks for the tip, I checked the plug like you advised - it looked brand new inside - no corrosion - where should I look next?
you need to check at that plug to see if there is power coming out when park lights are turned on ! Simply backprobe the connector when plugged in and with park light switch on . You are looking for pin location H on that connector . The wire will be a 16 gauge brown in color with A58I or A58S stamped on wiring. Check that wire with a test light to ground and see if there is power coming out from body controller to feed light circuit .
K Ill check it tomorrow. Thanks for helping. FYI - I do have the PM service done at our local dealer as well as repairs as needed - (No start condition 2 months ago - turned out to be a fuse in? the transmission?!?) Anyway, I'm not being cheap, this is our only rig (sprayfoam Insulation)cant have it at the shop for days troubleshooting it as we cant work - we are a newer company and building)
Anyhow - thanks again, I will probe the connector next time the body/markers go out prob tomorrow as it will be cold and some snow in the forecast - what is the path of the current? (ie.. battery to distribution panel under hood to switch to lights?) feel free to give me a few things to check in order - we have a full shop and pretty handy.
Of course when this is done, you will receive a great review, and if I can somehow send you some more money - As surely I would've spent more with it in the shop
I will try and send you some diagrams but they may not be very clear! I will try and help you through the diagrams!
This is the connector and pin H is the location of the wire . It is a 14 gauge brown wire with J58A stamped on it . Please disregard the other wire numbers I gave you . This is what you should see on that connector . Check this one to see if you have power there with park switch on .
andy, never did anything with this as we only run during days...but now winter is approaching and early morning and late pm is dark - need to get this solved
I will check the connection you suggested when the lights are out...any other advice or leads?
