Default Running lights not lighting

1990 SP 36,

Having a tough time figuring out this one. My lights work, generally...meaning that the blinkers work, tail and headlights work as designed.

But I can not get the lights up top to light up.

Here is a pick from the back end

the same is true on the front (the top lights do not light up)

I turn the lights on with engine running, but no +12v to the bulb...any idea where I start with this?

Phil

Morning Phil, a few of us have had our Clearance Lights (top lights) stop functioning. Mine was that the Clearance Lights lost their ground and a new ground wire had to be run up to one of the lights. Easy check to see if that is your problem. Here is the search title you should look for - Clearance Lights not functioning

You didn't loose all your grounds at once. look for the switch to turn them on

Look for your switch as Rick says, and then test the switch for functionality. After that separate the Clearance Light from the coach, keeping the wires connected to the light.Then run a test wire from a good ground and touch the outside of the Clearance Light bulb socket. (Note: have your driving or parking lights switched on !) If your Clearance Lights come on, you lost your ground. The Clearance Lights all run off one ground and are daisy chained off of it , I know because that is what happened to mine. I could never find where my original ground or the fault was located!

Gunner, The original ground is located just above your head if you were sitting in the drivers seat. It goes from the upper drivers side clearance light to roof rib.



When troubleshooting do not over look any cannon plug connectors that the power wire may run through. I traced my inop clearance lights to a bad connection in a cannon plug.



Using a multi meter I started at the switch and verified power through the fuse block, two different relays and then the cannon plug. I was getting power to it but not through it!
