Any voltage at the light socket?
Is there voltage at the switch?
If not check the switch.
If not a bad switch is there a breaker that's off?
Broken wire someplace?

D got it right.
Most likely, your switch is bad. But it's just following the path backwards, finding where you lose power.

it is not on a switch, just has a switch on light that slides back and forth. Will check to see if there is voltage and the breaker.
Thanks for the help.

That slider, is a switch. It's closes and opens the circuit.
And your voltage will be at a fuse for the 12VDC side, but if that's the only thing not working, it's not a fuse. It's the bulb, switch, socket, or wiring too it.

are you saying check the voltage at the fuse, not it the light receptacle? If it is the wiring how would you trace it without tearing out the ceilings?

Probably the switch! Is it a push button?

I'm just saying it's most likely the switch or the bulb socket. If not, it's wiring in the area; in that case probably the wire splices right by the fixture.
And if it was a bad fuse, you'd have more things NOT working than just the light.

light over table

Thanks for all the info, got us looking at all you recommended, the wire to the light came up in the slide out and the slide-out had nicked a wire. Thanks

It's rare that the wiring is actually the issue, but not unheard of.
