VERY simple LOGIC question. Please help..

Haha.. haha. haha.. (Evil laughing)

supposedly they call electronics logic.. but I see no logic about it so here we go.

dome light... right now, it goes on when the passanger door is opened or you swing the dimmer up till it clicks..

PERFECT!! WOO only 2 hours to get that working..

now, the fun stuff.

When I started this ordeal, the drivers side door switch buzzed when the door was open and the key was in!!! Woo another victory..
since..

no the buzzer doesn't go.. and the light doesn't go on..

there are 2 connectors going into the switch.. one has one wire.. the other has one. they both connect to eachother through the switch itself.. then they go to ground when the door is open..

the under dash lights are broken.. ill get new bulbs on thursday.

so.. anyone can tell me why my door switch.. and wires, no longer work.. I tried grounding each of the wires.. and grounding all of the wires to no result.. no light, no buzz..

It should just work by being plugged in, but it doesn't.

it's driving me crazy.

soemone please help..

I KNOW YOU KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO DO LEVE!! AND I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE!!

*Starts Sobbing*

anyone?>

Re: VERY simple LOGIC question. Please help..

1. Pull the drivers door switch.
2. Does it have 12vdc going to the switch?
3. The switch must ground the 12vdc and then the light comes on.
4. Does the switch work?

Start there...

Re: VERY simple LOGIC question. Please help..

OK. So I'm assuming the switch works because it's a very very simple switch..just grounds the wire.

I can't find anything with any volts.. there's two plugs, their both cold.. three wires.. one in one plug, two in the other..

do you know which are supposed to be hot?

Does the circuit look like this? My guess, there's miss-wire in the dome switch or the dimmer switch assembly is not grounding the swtich.

Re: VERY simple LOGIC question. Please help..

That was embarrasing.. but I got it..

1/2 way down the highway.. I just hit the breaks hopped out.. and pluged back in a connector that I had unpluged to test the curcit... the reason that had to be done was because stupid me left the dimmer all the way up.. and the light was staying on..
WHAT A WASTE OF TIME!

anyways..

now i've got another..

as you can see in that diagram theres a plug with two wires, and one with one wire, which are connected through the swtich.... whats stopping me from putting all 3 wires together in one plug and getting a cheapo generic switch with NAPA will sell me for less then the 17.95 Chrysler wants?
