Engine light switch

2003 Fleetwood Expedition - I have a switch on the dash for the luggage compartments that works great. But the engine, generator, and water compartment are always on! Where the heck is the switch?

On the light assembly itself? My engine and genny compartments have switches on the light assembly, and the water compartment has a plunger switch providing ground so the light comes on when you open the door. Hint: Do not get in the compartment and close the door to see if the light goes out. Don't ask me how I know.....

Yea, there's no switch on the light, no plunger switch. Thought maybe someone with a similar rig knew the answer. Thanks.

Fleetwood sometimes puts the switch you are looking for on door arm by the shift pad. On my sons Excursion it is next to the turbo brake and ICC flasher I think.

It's on the left of the cockpit near the engine brake and marker light flasher. It is marked "CTSY" or something like that.

I struggled with it when I first got our '02. I parked it at the dragstrip one weekend for early parking (returning on Thursday) and couldn't figure out how to turn the lights off to save the battery. I just pulled the bulbs. The next weekend I figured out it was that switch.

Engine light switch

Thanks. None of the lights in the cluster with the engine brake are labeled except for the icons. A couple of the switches don't appear to be working, so I'll pursue that this week.

No, by gum. I went out tonight and tried the switches. For some reason I thought pressing the top half activated the switch, the bottom half turned it off. Not so. The icon is on the bottom half, which activates it. Good to know.

Thanks for the help!!

Okay, since I'm on this topic. Two more switches that apparently don't work. One I'm assuming are for fog lights. The other has an icon showing lights back to back, and it's a spring loaded rocker that returns to rest. Could this be to flash lights? As I said, neither do anything at this time.

I'll have to walk downstairs and check later, but the momentary switch is most likely to flash the parking lights.
