Dome light '01 Lw300

    The rear (cargo area) dome lamp in our lw300 went out lately. Lamps (3) seem
    to be all OK but won't come on regardless of the position of the switch.
    Front dome lamp works properly.

    Before I make myself crazy toting out the electrical drawings, anybody seen
    this before? Since all the lamps are on a timer to turn off power after 20
    minutes, I suspected a hiccup in the body control module. Pulled all the
    usual fuses (just short of pulling the battery feed) to reset the systems -
    no change.

    Thanks in advance for any information

    Found the problem.
    I installed a class 1 trailer hitch and trailer light converter a couple of
    weeks ago. Tapped in all the circuits for the trailer lights in the left
    rear tail light access panel. The connector feeding the rear dome light is
    inside that panel too. I must have dislodged it and never noticed the dome
    was out. Just pushed the connector together again and all is good.
