Calling All Electrical/OHC guru's!!!!
Well this past Sat. I got an OHC/Auto-Dim Mirror/Lighted Visors out of an Explorer. When I had just the 2 wires ran to the dome light the OHC worked the way it should. Map lights cut on when the dome light was on, and you could cut them on and off as you please. The only thing I thought was a lil strange was that the display would come on when the dome light was on.
Now on Sunday I decided to finish wiring up everything except the temp sensor. I ran the Gray/Black wire to the Gray/Black wire on the GEM, the Lt.Blue/Red to the Lt.Blue/Red on the radio harness, Gray/Yellow to the Yellow/Black on the radio harness.
So now I am thinking great I'm done. The hardest part was cutting the headliner. Wrong, this is where it gets good. When I cut the truck on the map lights on the OHC and dome light stay on like a door is open. The cargo lights stay on with the door closed but when you open the door they shut off.
What I have come to find out is:
If the Gray/Yellow wire is not hook up I have no problem with the Map/Dome/Cargo lights. But obviously no power to the display of the OHC when the dome light shuts off.
If the BLK/BLU wire is hooked up:
Truck On: Map Lights work like they are suppose to. Cargo lights cut on when the door is shut and cut off when the door is open
Truck Off: When the door is shut the OHC has no power. When the door is open the map lights cut on and the screen comes on. Also the door chime is going off when the door is open like the key is in the acc/on position. But if I unhook the GRY/YEL the door chime stops.
If the GRN/ORG wire is hooked up:
Truck On: The map lights stay on the OHC but the cargo lights work fine.
Truck Off: The map lights work.
Any help is appreciated. If worst comes to worst I will just leave the OHC unplugged from the dome light, and just run the Green/Orange wire to the visors.
