Ok, so i just changed mine. It was the switch. Disconnected the bad switch and tried to crank it and nothing happened. Put the new switch in and they worked. Lost about 3/4 pint of trans fluid. Be ready for that, it comes out quick. I'm not sure if it matters i put a small piece of thread tape on the switch before putting it in. I also had to use an adjustable wrench to get it off. Its a pain in the a$$ but hey now my lights work. Hope this helps.

I got my switch at Napa for $13. Just make sure they don't try to sell you a neutral safety switch relay. They got the wrong thing at the local oreilly so i just ended up going to napa. Now I just have to replace the passenger bulb b/c someone put a dual fillanment bulb in it, always something. Good luck

I've been toying with the LED light thing. I think i'm going to get the ed bulb replacments from super bright led. I have an auxillary light alright back there so i don't really need brighter but brighter is better and they look cool.

Thank ya'll so much for this conversation I am currently working on the lights of my 89 yj. This chat of ya'lls was full of nearly all the info I needed. I'm just in a 5 speed manual not an auto, but im sure after reading this I can solve my problem.
