I changed the driver door switch today, not too bad of a job though smaller hands would help. Before I installed the new switch I plugged it in and pushed the plunger in to check for function, it acted the same. Ok, maybe its the passenger fron that is bad. I figured out how to get to that switch real fast as its behind the glove box.
Here's the mystery part, I swing the glove box out of the way and look the back side of the switch.....no wires
WTF?! maybe the connecter wasnt put in all the way and it fell out of the switch? So I go hunting for the wiring conector, cant find it
I spent 30mins searching for it, head in the glove box cavity, feeling all over the place, it's no where to be found. For grins, I just removed the switch altogether.
It started getting late, I got cold and tired and said the hell with it. Plugged in and installed the switch on the driver front, put the dash back together. I fire up the truck to check function, works perfectly! Dome light goes on and off like it should and the radio stays after I turn the engine off and take the key out till the door is opened, exactly like it should.
Now another mystery. I started the truck up again got out and closed the door, walked around to the passenger front door (the one without a door switch).......Fun part, I opened the door and the dome light came on!
I was dumbfounded! I opened and closed the 3 times and couldnt believe what I was seeing! I opened the door again and searched for another switch somewhere, cant find one. So is the ghosht of door switvhes past working in it's place??? The door switch is not even installed, let alone wired up. I'm stumped
Is my truck the only one like this or are all the s10's like this?
