Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
THEY WILL NOT COME ON (NEW FUSES AND BULBS)
Remove the fuse from it's holder. Check across the 2 prongs with the DC volt meter. If you have power to the fuse then replace it. Now go to the dome light adn remove the buld. With your door open (to engage the light switch) place one meter lead carefully into the light socket and touch it to the spring at the bottom of the socket and touch the other lead to the side of the socket ( inside metal part. You should have voltage there. If not the your wire is open somewhere between the fuse box and the light.
If you ever have a short or open wire you should look to place where there is some sort of movement involved i.e. the wiring harness in the door hinge. or in an area that can be easily kicked or vibrated. A well secured wire seldom has a problem .
Just start from the fuse box and follow the wires through to the light. Make no assumptions find your wire.
