Hi there
-
On police vehicles only, the dark car feature is a special order option that will override the illuminated entry function. If the feature is activated, the courtesy lamps will not illuminate during entry or exit of the vehicle. However, the interior lamps will still illuminate when switched on from the instrument panel dimmer switch.
The unique police instrument panel harness has an in-line connector for enabling or disabling the dark car feature. The in-line connector (C2320) is located behind the headlamp switch. When the connection is made, the dark car signal circuit is routed to ground. The feature is enabled by completing the circuit to ground, and disabled by opening the circuit. To enable or disable the feature, disconnect the battery, disconnect or connect C2320, and reconnect the battery.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
