i need to know what controls the ground to the bulb
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 years ago.
Ok, I am double checking my wiring diagram is all, that's the hold up. If there isn't any ground on your pink/l green wire then I would make a ground wire for it and run it to ground to see if the light comes on. There would have to be a break in that wire. Since I don't seem to have the correct wiring diagram I can open this back up for the others if you would like. Is the truck 4x4 or something?

I don't appear to have the correct wiring diagram for this model. I simply am not seeing what you are. The computer would have to be what grounds the circuit for the light, but since I cannot prove this with my wiring diagram, I am goiing to open it up for the other experts to look at.Please don't reply or it will lock to me and they won't even be able to see it. Please, save the rating for someone that can help you with this.

a yellow and black wire to instrument cluster, is the wire the module puts a ground on to make the light come on, a red and yellow wire to cluster is the power from fuse box, if u have power and tried another computer then I would run a new wire from cluster to module
