To those with chev express under hood light experience


mine was out. I saw whole units for sale online.
I;ve discovered they're automatic; using a gravity switch
Super touchy
Have any of you rehabbed this fixture?


Mine was working on and off for a while, but I recently took it on very rough roads and now you can hear the switch clunk when you open and close the hood.
I never realized how it worked until your thread.

Never had an issue with mine, if I am going to be wrenching with the hood open for any extended period of time I unplug it. It has a high current bulb and runs really hot.

Mine did not work when i bought the van but I could hear the switch working. Took it apart, cleaned the contacts and sliders - which are more or less the same thing - and it works like a champ! Super simple.
