Electrical Issues...Please Help!

Hey everyone, having an issue with my dome lights. One day they just stopped working. I believe its the same connection to my 2 fantastic fans and my two aftermarket reading lights because those are not working either. Sports mobile did all the electrical originally but back in 2002.

I have pulled EVERY fuse out and even checked the slots with a test light. My friend is bringing a multimeter over this weekend to see if they are all getting adequate power but it doesn't make sense to me.

Anyone have this issue before? I'm hoping I don't have to do any remodeling to find the solution...

First have you checked your manual? Also if you are talking about the passenger area dome light, I thought that was connected to the van side, but I admitted have not spent any time on them.

The side reading lights are usually connected to the 30 amp Passenger or Driver side fuse on the Sportsmobile fuse block.

Other then that you check for bad ground connections, if it looks like the power side is good.

The dome lights in our SMB are turned on by opening one of the passenger vans and disabled by rotating the headlight switch...I don't remember which way but there is an indent at one extreme or the other which is the dome light on/off position.

My 2001 has two rocker switches on the overhead that occasionally get bumped and will turn off all the lights, fan, and something else I don't remember now. When the switches are on, all lights are operated with individual switches on the individual lights.
