the dome light is switched otherwise it would be on. do not cut into any wire. Look at the empty slots on fuse box and see if any of the re always powered or switch power. you need the switched power slot.
Need to check the Intergrated Power Module (fuse box) and/or the FCM (body control module attached to the fuse box) They have a terrible design and are not weather-proofed from the underneath where the harnesses plug in and water corrodes the circuit board on the fuse box...
There should be 12 volts on the orange wire at the bulbs. The switch controls the ground side of the circuit. There should be 12 volts on the blue w/white wire at the switch. The switch will ground that wire and complete the circuit and the cargo lights will turn on.
to check the switch you would unplug it and check for continuity between the pins that the blue w/wire wire and black wire go to.
Here is what you need to get. You need to buy a 30 amp circuit breaker. Tap your power supply and install the two terminal 30 map breaker in to the power wire. This will protect your switch if the wire should short out for some reason. One side of the hot line goes to the switch. The other side of the switch needs a wire going to the lights that share a common power supply line. The two lines that are your ground lines from the lights will link together and ground them to the metal body or frame somewhere. Then you are good to go. You should be able to purchase a 30 amp ciecuit breaker at just about any parts supplier cheaply. They are very small and made out of tin on the outside. It should not cost you over $ 5.00 to purchase. Good luck.
white wire makes the light come on with dome lights, orange wire should be constant power, black is ground and blue w/white should go directly to the brake light switch, both white should be the same connection if problems let me know
not specific for snowboard buy general rack use : 1. The Lighter the Better
Most minivan roof racks are designed for carrying lightweight objects -- like skis, small ladders, well-secured aerodynamic cargo containers (like those offered by Thule) and other light loads.
2. Mind the Center of Gravity
Putting heavy boxes, bulky luggage and other weighty objects on your roof will raise the center of gravity of your vehicle, which could increase the chances of a rollover during emergency maneuvering or in the event of an accident.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) also encourages drivers to follow auto manufacturer guidelines for roof rack usage.
* Rollover Risk: Load Vehicles Properly [NHTSA]
3. Strap and Secure
Improperly secured roof cargo can also fly off and strike vehicles travelling behind you, sometimes with tragic results.
Remember: Only put lightweight objects on your roof rack, secure cargo properly with tie-downs and strong cord, and consider purchasing an aerodynamic cargo container if you plan on using your roof rack to frequently carry light loads.
