How to replace the over head map lights or the center over head reading lights


There are two types of overhead consolse on this truck. One has a storage compartment connected to the map light section, and one with a seperate removable section behind the map lights that has a lever on both sides that can be pulled down. If you have the levers, pull them both down at once and pull the section off the rail. Then insert a screw driver between the rail and the map light assembly at the rear, and gently pry down. If you don't have the side levers, insert a screw driver at the rear of the assembly and gently pry down the entire section. Once removed, press the tab down on the power connector for the wiring harness (white connector whth four wires) remove it, and remove the assembly. You will see two black connectors that hold the bulbs. Remove them by twising counter clockwise, and pull out the bulbs. Replace them with the 900 series bulb, or LED bulbs. Once the bulbs are back in place, reconnect the power connector, and gently tap the assembly back in place with the palm of your hand to reseat the clips.
Caution!, test the bulbs before you put the assembly back in place. LEDs are polarity sensitive.

I need to fix Dash air vent light -Left side - that goes on and off- How due I remove the bulb and check the wiring?


Check out the "Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs" section below:

2002 Volkswagen Passat - Repair Manual - Chassis Electrical (excerpt)

Dome/Map/Cargo Light

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its retaining clip contacts. If the bulb has tapered ends, gently depress the spring clip/metal contact and disengage the light bulb, then pull it free of the two metal contacts.

To install:
  1. Before installing the light bulb into the metal contacts, ensure that all electrical conducting surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
  2. Insert the bulb into the holder. If the contacts have small holes, be sure that the tapered ends of the bulb are situated in them.
  3. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.
  4. Install the cover until its retaining tabs are properly engaged.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Instrument Cluster Light Bulbs
The instrument clusters installed on these models are one of 2 types and distinguished by the instrument lighting color, either green or blue.
On models with green instrumentation, only the control light bulbs are replaceable. Should any other failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.
On models with blue instrumentation, none of the components are replaceable. Should a failure occur, the instrument cluster must be replaced.

Map Lights
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the bulb from its electrical connector.
  3. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Replacing map light bulb in 2008 honda ridgeline


For the front map lights - gently pry the cover down using a very small screwdriver. The outer-edge (left or right) should be last. the inner portion is where the cover pivots and snaps in.
Once the cover is removed, just unplug the bulb and replace. It is a tube-style bulb...it kind of looks like an old style fuse.

HOW CAN I CHANGE THE BULBS FOR THE MAP LIGHTS AND THE CIGAR ASH RECEIVER WITHOUT BREAKING ANYTHING.


To change the bulbs for the map lights you need to first remove the screw located on the overhead console which is towards the front of the console (towards the front window). Then you need to pry down on the rear of the console. Once the console is removed you then need to remove the map light bulbholders and replace the bulbs.

As for the bulbs for the ashtray I am not sure if there is one.
