    Is there a fuse that only gets power when the dome lights are on, or is the dome light fuse a constant 12v?

    If the dome light fuse only gets power when the dome light is on (ie, switch all the way up or doors open), which fuse number is it?

    So cold to multimeter the fuses one by one :(

    Looks like fuse #26 is switched power, only active when the dome light is on (door open or dimmer switched to the dome position.)

    i doubt it cuz it looks like it has the battery saver relay along with the gem and a couple other things with it....

    I have a 2000 XL. No battery saver, perhaps my leads weren't contacting the fuse socket (had two wires, one wrapped around each leg of the fuse, then stuck the fuse in, shut the door, and tested.)

    Dome light works off of a negative ground circuit, so watch your wiring.

    What are you trying to do ?
