Hello,

It sounds like you have a lighting module that is going out. This module is located near the headlight switch. Here is a diagram for the wiring and a guide to help you confirm the problem.

Door lock actuator caution: When performing the following test, use a circuit-protected DVOM. Do not apply power to actuator longer than five seconds. Apply twelve volts to actuator terminals. Actuator rod should complete its travel in less than one second. Reverse leads to actuator terminals. Actuator should operate in reverse direction at same speed. 1. Measure actuator motor current. See Fig. 1 . Reverse leads at actuator terminals to measure reverse current draw. Refer to the actuator motor current specifications table. Replace actuator if current exceeds specification. 2.
