Synchronicity, isn't it a beautiful thing!?!
To reply to you guys: Yes, I have two batteries under the hood, one leisure, the other starter. Right next to the driver seat there's a battery switch that allows me to toggle between the two or switch to off.
As far as the dome light goes. I have one above the table that has three functions. both lights on as door opens, just one light on, and off. I don't know what you're referring to when you mention a switch as the dash... I don't seem to have a switch that controls: Here's a photo of the lights above the dash and the one above the table that functions as the door opens.IMG_1046.jpg
BUT! Why I say synchronicity is a beautiful thing, is that the day that I finally approach this forum with the question is the same day I have my tires changed. After that was said and done, I cruised back to my place and parked it, and wouldn't you know it, but the lights and fan vent all started to work when I turned them on!!
My guess is that something was shifted as the van went up the lift. I have some runner lights along the running boards that I've never had working, and maybe there was a missed connection which was shifted around by the lift?? I have no idea.
Lastly, for some reason, in this day of non reasons, after all of this the dome light above the table will not come on and off as the door opens. Luckily I can turn if off and via the switch. But if the trade off is the other lights and vent working while the van isn't running for this, I'll take it.
Any other thoughts around this ??
I'm very grateful for all your thoughts.
