Customer Question
2008 aspen, right side...

2008 aspen, right side overhead courtesy light is usually dim, sometimes flickers. What is wrong?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The overhead console light on passenger side.

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

I am a mechanic by trade. I have never experienced this particular problem, on this particular vehicle. I have done nothing yet, just looking for advice.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

This is my own vehicle and I have only had it for a few months. This problem has been there since I bought it.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started! This would be a ground, voltage or connection issue, with light bulb in monitor voltage and then with out bulb

I suppose what I a am looking for is someone who has seen a similar problem. Is there a body control computer involved, is it the light itself. Is this a LED light. It is just the passenger side, drivers side is fine. Is this a common problem. Is there a notorious problem with grounds on this vehicle or something of that nature. I was looking for someone to steer me in a direction. I do not have the vehicle here now, I was not intending to fix the vehicle tonight, just looking for advice. Can this be continued tomorrow, I have to go pick up my son?

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
