I destroyed mine getting it out if I remember correctly it's actually glued in place and I don't think you can get it out with out breaking it

Drop the headliner i think, and yes its glued in. Its a disaster. you will need to replace it if you remove it.

The CHMSL has its own fuse and relay in the under hood relay center or your brake switch is bad. Check all of those things. The bulbs also do not last that long, as they often melt the lens over them if you sit in traffic a lot.

get the correct LED replacement lamp and that'll never be an issue. they're available in sylvania ZEVO series with a lifetime warranty.

IIRC i saw them at pep boys or oriely's, other store carry the ZEVO series to replace you map and courtesy lights too. and as an added bonus - they reduce the drain on your battery to almost nothing if you happen to leave that map light on overnight :)

if you leave your map lights on over night the BCM automatically shuts them off after an hour or so. I have left my rear ones on many times after fudging around in the back seat looking for stuff when unloading the truck at night and forgot I had them on. Mine are LED, but i will come back to the truck unlock the doors and see them come on.
