yeah already checked those.
they are fine.
in case its the illumination control.....
I get power to the illumination control, it lights up. there are I believe 6 prongs going into this, when I test the outer 2 the tester lights.....when I check the other 4, the tester doesnt.
there are some other switches there
one is a rotary switch--this adjusts the interior brightness of the instrument panel, etc, and when you turn it all the way it should turn on the interior lights.
this switch (rotary) is currently working and controlling the brightness of the dashboard switches. the other switch is a toggle switch with 3 positions, but as you are saying this switch might not be controlling my issue.
any other places to check? all other things in the car appear to work except of the interior and vanity lights.
thats the switch i meant. thats the switch that has a 6pin harness. I took this swich out and checked the harness...... its getting power on the outer 2 nodes of the harness (checked with tester)...the other 4 when I touch them get nothing.
could this switch be the issue, as I stated it does get power to it and lights up when I plug it in?? sorry for calling it the wrong thing before.
unfortunately my wife has the car, im at work.
but I do remember that only the outer 2 had power, the other 4 didnt.
does it sound like the switch is the issue?
ill start with the switch and pick it up on the way home.
ill let you know if that fixed the issue.
How can I be sure its the switch?
they wont take it back if I open the package as its electrical.
is there a way i can verify the switch is bad. I went and pulled all the fuses and they all look fine, even the ones under the hood.
is there a way to jump the wires on the cable to bypass the switch/etc. Switch is 87 dollars and non returnable once opened.
