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.

Garage door opener storage bin

DESCRIPTION

A compartment near the rear of the overhead console is designed to hold most garage door opener remote control transmitters. The door for the garage door opener compartment features a spring-loaded latch mechanism and has a small depression with tactile ribs just forward of the latch. The transmitter is mounted within the compartment with an adhesive- backed hook and loop fastener patch and, when the compartment is closed, the depressed area of the compartment door is pressed upward to actuate the transmitter.

A transmitter mounting kit including the adhesivebacked hook and loop fastener material and additional adapter pegs is available for service. The garage door opener storage bin door is also available for service replacement. The door unit includes the spring-loaded latch mechanism. If any of these components is damaged or faulty, the garage door opener storage bin door unit must be replaced.

OPERATION

The garage door opener storage compartment door is opened by pressing the spring-loaded latch towards the front of the vehicle. When the compartment door is opened, the garage door opener transmitter can be installed in the compartment using the adhesivebacked hook and loop fastener material provided.

With the transmitter mounted in the storage bin, adapter pegs located on the inside of the garage door opener door are selected and mounted on one of several posts on the back side of the door. The adapter pegs can be stacked if additional length is required.

The combination of the adapter peg length and the peg location selected must be suitable to depress the button of the transmitter when the center of the garage door opener storage bin door is depressed.

When the proper combination has been selected, the compartment door is closed and need not be reopened except to replace the transmitter batteries.

See the owner's manual in the vehicle glove box for more information on the use and operation of the overhead console garage door opener storage bin.
