Flood lights over bed

Some how I shorted out one of the flood lights over the head of the bed
There are 4, 2 on each side, the 2 forward lights won't burn, the 2 aft lights burn ok
I have pulled the panel in the closet and checked fuses, but have not found the right one I guess.
Any body know where I may find the problem. All other lights done fine.
It's wire #468, don't think it going to the panel in the closet.

The only fuses I have found for my interior lighting were either behind that panel in the upper bedroom cabinet (passenger side) or behind the electrical service panel door in hallway.

It's as likely to be an open as it is to be a short. I doubt that those two lights are separately fused. I suggest that you check the wire that supplies power from the aft switch to the forward switch. Or, it could be the ground to the forward pair is open.

Good luck

You would think so, but I had my passenger side map light in front that was not working. Mr_D found out a fuse in the lower left corner of the back closet in the bedroom that was burned out. Now, I too, have two of my rear bedroom overhead lights are not working. Haven't figured that one out yet!

Of course he could resolve the whole thing with a quick look at the schematic.

With our schematics there is no such thing as a "quick" look!

Pull one working bulb out and both dead ones.

With a helper if needed check voltage pin to pin in all sockets.

Doing this verifies if the hot or ground is the issue.

If all are on same switch.

The wire harness likely goes from switch to one socket then on to next or maybe splits and goes one way to each pair.

Depending on what is missing that may be your path.

Try removing the fixtures to inspect the connections if needed.

Yeah, have already done those things , pull lights, checked new bulbs, those 2 are dead as a door nail.
About separate fused, I thought the same thing, but the fuse for the other 2 is in closet panel, when that fuse is pulled, it only puts out those 2 lights,The # on the wire,at light is also #in fuse panel, so far I have not located that #, so will look more later, don't use those much anyway, I can always take George's advice! !😄

You are right! I looked at the schematics and couldn't make heads and tails. I didn't find any glossary for the schematics to know what the different numbers in the circles meant. Is there a glossary that you know of, or there isn't such a thing?
Cheers,
