JumpyRhyme posted a topic in 1982-2005 Chevrolet S-10/Blazer & GMC S15/Sonoma/JimmyOk so I have a 2000 gmc jimmy 4x4 and the dome lights and footwell lights and also the 4x4 doesn’t work at all and when I bought the truck from my dad he said the last owner melted some of the wiring harness and I was wondering where should I start to fix this problem. Should I go straight to pulling the dash and fixing it that way or what do y’all think
The road to hell is indeed paved with good intentions. 1997 Chevrolet Suburban K2500 LT. I've decided to upgrade all the lighting to LED. The map lights are giving me fits. You use a Torx bit in the center of the clear lens, push in and turn, and the map light pops out. It worked that way on the first one. The second one worked for removal, but when I tried to reinstall it, it seems to have gotten stuck and I've stripped it. Anyone got an idea how to get the blasted thing out? I've tried gentle prying, trying to get it to move. No go. Oh yeah, and the switch seems to have crapped out. *sigh* On the remaining 4 lights, the pattern in the plastic isn't Torx. It's an "X" shape. A flat blade screwdriver doesn't work. A Phillips isn't the right shape. Obviously a Torx won't work. Not sure why they're different, but they are. Anyone got any idea what tool to use to get them out? I'd like to strangle the engineer who came up with this lunacy. My 01 GMC Sierra only needs a flat blade screwdriver to change the map lights. That's a good design.
Amazing how ridiculously low lit the interior lights are and I bought these on Amazon which are super super bright. It has it’s own on off switch and it’s easily accessible so I don’t need to do this but just because it’s been habit so long it would be nice to use the switch to turn this on but even though it’s LED it’s probably going to draw a lot more power as the wires the OEM switch feeds for its LED is so small it looks like a human hair! LOL. So I don’t think it’s going to work using the switch as I believe the new lights will overload it unless I combine all four wires together. But I would like to use the power positive and negative coming in at least so I don’t have to run new wires. The picture is deceiving these things are really big like 12 inches long by 4 inches wide Can someone look at this harness and tell me which two wires to use and opinions on whether the switches will handle this new LED light?
