Customer Question
2006 Suzuki grand vitara...

2006 Suzuki grand vitara: neither of my dome lights work in the door position. Ok in on pos. I checked the white wire to ground and I get 12 volts. I checked the black wire to ground no volts. I checke the black/brown wire that goes to the door contact and I have 12 vols also.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's manual for this?

Do not have one but I did look at a schematic. No idea why I have voltage in the black/brown wire

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Vitara yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I checked the voltages
