That was my first thought too, so I disconected the harness at the
connector for the passenger side light assembly and the short went
away. I plugged it back in and the short was still gone, momentarily.
So I figure that the short is in that part of the harness (connector
to light assembly). I bypassed that part with a new wire, and the
short was gone. I went for a drive and the short came back. That is
why I’m suspecting the lamp out module, I don’t know much about them.
Anyone ever have any experience with one?
