Hello and good day:

May I ask a few more question?

1. Does the Bulb, or fuse blow when you put in a new one??

2. Have you checked the Condition of the Bulb Socket?

3. Can you please provide any more info on this?

Thank you

Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6

Sorry for the Delay in the Response.

You have a dead Ground/Short....Check the Socket First...Look for a wire that may be bare.

Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6
