"Monaco" lighted grab rail at entry door

When I turn my porch light on, the grab rail on the outside by the entry door does not illuminate.
It's the clear type, with the fibre optic rods that run the length of the rail.
Looking for a link to a prior thread or post on how to check or replace the bulb.
Thanks

I don't know the link you're looking for, but I can tell you that these LED's easily replace the old bulb and fit perfectly in my handle. They're 12 volt compatible and are available in about any color you like. I got the amber ones to match my amber porch light. All you have to do is remove the top 2 screws to pop off the handle exposing the original bulb and socket. Just cut the old bulb socket off, insert the new LED module, temporarily connect the LED wires to the coach wires confirming that you have attached +to+ and -to-, make a permanent connection using your method of choice, and enjoy.

Ours is controlled by a separate switch, as well. Did yours used to come on with the porch light and now does not, or is this a new coach to you and you are expecting that it should? If it's the latter, Timaz probably has your answer.
