Mood lights

Postby Wilderoots [OP] » June 19th 2018, 7:32pm

Hey there everyone. I am a newbie and need some help. My indirect/ reading lights just stopped working. I checked the fuses (which I was a bit confused with) but all seemed okay . I took the housing off and all the wires seemed fine. What am I doing wrong? Thanks :confused: :confused:

Hi Wilderoots,
Did you check both fuse boxes? There is one under the hood, and one in the driver's footwell under the dash.

If you're not sure how to tell if a fuse is bad, just search how to tell on google or youtube, I'm sure you'll find something there.

Good luck

With a conversion van, there could easily be another fuse block/location that isn't stock. If you have any original documentation from the conversion, that is the first place I would look.

Trolls take away from productive work, best to starve the troll of attention by ignoring it and going about your business.

When I check a fuse, I use either a test light, volt meter or ohm meter. I have seen way too many fuses that looks good but are blown.

Some conversion vans have the fuse located near the (aftermarket) switch, others might have a fuse box on the wall behind the driver's seat, some even piggy backed off the fusebox under the dash. There was no consistency in the conversion van market.
