2004 Avalanche, Vanity lights above dash

There are two halogen vanity lights positioned above the dash. I can't get these to come on. My wife seems to think they come on with the dash board dimmer switch. Anyone have the same setup and know hows these work?

They are wired to come on with the dash light dimmer switch as your wife believes. Same position as the "dome light" position.

vanity lights

I will have to check for power to the dimmer switch without the key being on. The dimmer does work with the headlights on. Not sure about the "dome Position"

Button on the left of the Steering wheel.... I constantly hit it with my knee when getting in. It turns on the automatic setting for the lights.

I don't have anything below the headlight switch or on the steering column. I'll keep looking.

Did you turn the dimmer switch for the dashboard to full bright? There's a little extra push and a little "click" sound that gets my dimmer to the end of the rheostat and into the switch for the dome lights to turn on.

OF:

Do yours not operate with a separate dash switch? My switch is next to the radio, labeled "Overhead Light". Sounds like the Avalanche must be different.

Mine do have a separate dashboard rheostat, but it's the same one as the guages, and it clicks the dome light on when I get to full bright + on the dash light switch.
