Overhead console reading and courtesy lamp

DESCRIPTION

The overhead console in this vehicle is equipped with two individual reading and courtesy lamps. The lamp lenses are the only visible components of these lamps. The reading and courtesy lamp lenses are mounted in the overhead console housing between the compass mini-trip computer display and the sunglasses storage bin. Each lamp has its own switch, bulb, and lens; but both lamps share a common lamp housing within the overhead console.

The overhead console reading and courtesy lamps operate on battery current that is provided at all times, regardless of the ignition switch position. The ground feed for the lamps is switched through the integral reading and courtesy lamp switches or through the door jamb switches. Each lamp is designed and aimed to provide illumination that will be directed only to that side of the vehicle on which the lamp is located.

The reading and courtesy lamp lenses, bulbs and the lamp housing are available for service replacement.

The reading and courtesy lamp switches, bulb holders and wiring are only available as part of the overhead console wire harness. If either of the lamp switches or bulb holders is faulty or damaged, the entire overhead console wire harness assembly must be replaced.

For service of the reading and courtesy lamp bulbs, refer to Overhead Console Reading Lamp Bulbs in the Removal and Installation section of Group 8L - Lamps. For diagnosis of the reading and courtesy lamps, refer to Lamp Diagnosis in the Diagnosis and Testing section of Group 8L - Lamps. For complete circuit diagrams, refer to Overhead Console in the Contents of Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.

OPERATION

All reading and courtesy lamps located in the overhead console are activated by the door jamb switches.

When all of the doors are closed, these lamps can be individually activated by depressing the corresponding lens. When any door is open, depressing the lamp lenses to activate the lamp switches will not turn the lamps off.

See the owner's manual in the vehicle glove box for more information on the use and operation of the overhead console reading and courtesy lamps.
