I'm afraid I can't make sense out of your initial post on this issue.

You're going to have to supply a good bit more information before folks will be able to offer you much useful help! Year, Type, Model number of coach, which specific lamp/light are you having a problem with, what specifically is the problem you are having?

Here are the Wiring Diagrams for the 2004 Journey 34H. Looking at the Body, 12 Volt Wiring Installation diagram there appears to be a 'LAMP - WALL' behind the driver's seat and next to the sofa. The diagram refers us to WIRE ASM-OVHD 135015-02-000.

Looking at the Body, 12 Volt Wiring Diagram we find that wire assembly on the bottom of the last page of the pdf (and the lamp is referred to as a 'READING LAMP' and it gets its power from the wires labelled JF and NF (which also power the other two reading lamps in the ceiling over the sofa).

Looking at the Wiring Identification Guide we can see that these wires are identified as:
JF / 14 YEL OVERCURRENT PROTECTION (15A FUSE/BREAKER TYPICAL) COACH LIGHTING, ETC CIRCUIT #4 (REF NF)

NF / 14 WHT COACH LIGHTING CIRCUIT #4 (REF JF) GROUND
Per the Wiring Diagram above the WIRE ASM-OVHD connects to the WIRE ASM-SIDEWALL via a connector located in the galley overhead cabinet. The WIRE ASM-SIDEWALL can be seen in the top left of page 12 of the pdf. It connects to the WIRE ASM-SLIDEOUT via a connector located in the base of the galley cabinet.

The WIRE ASM-SLIDEOUT can be seen at the bottom of page 15 of the pdf. From this you can see the the GALLEY OVHD LAMP is powered by the same two JF / NF wires. The WIRE ASM-SLIDEOUT connects in turn to the WIRE ASM-COACH via a large connector in the base of the galley cabinet. That connector can be seen in the lower right corner of page 6 of the pdf. From there you can trace the wire JF back to the 12V Breaker Panel at the lower right of page 4 of the pdf, where you can see it is connected to the 2nd breaker from the right in the top row (as seen from the back).

Switching back to the Body, 12 Volt Wiring Installation diagram, you can see on page 5 of the pdf that JF connects to a 15A breaker labelled LAMPS (2nd from the left in the top row, as seen from the front).

This is a bit strange in that the LEDs draw less current than the traditional bulbs so they shouldn't be dimming. Are your lights on a dimmer? If so, you'll need to replace it with a dimmer that's designed to work with LEDs.

You might also want to post this on IRV2's sister site, Winnieowners.com where there's a large audience of Journey owners:

I assume this is 12 volt? If so, an LED bulb needs to be on correct polarity. If it is a flat type base you may have it in 180 off. If a push and turn that wouldn't be possible.

Most LED bulbs are directional, if it doesn't light, remove and turn around 180.

Single-contact bulbs will fit the socket either way.

Yeah I know that. I meant if it was a straight push in one they won't work. I think you just said the same thing.

Might try putting original style bulb back in. If it works correctly you have good power/ wiring.

I replaced front couch lamp with an LED a few years back in my 06 Journey. I believe it was push in and turn.

Later, I had a problem with the rear socket over the couch. Removed light fixture and tightened all connections. Works much better, but once in a while still doesn't switch on at first try. I believe it is a small intermittent problem with the rocker switch contacts in that fixture.

Good luck

This may be way beside the point but, if you are referring to the light just behind the drivers seat; that light is turned on by twisting the head light switch, the one you pull to turn on the head lights, in the good old days you'd twist it to turn on the dome light. Just a thought.
