[quote=”Dunebasher” post=204162]If there’s a possible broken wire, why does the meter reading change when I push the switch to turn the light off? It reads zero volts with the switch off, OL with the switch on. Why not zero volts or OL all the time, regardless of the switch position?

I’m not trying to be argumentative BTW, just trying to learn :)[/quote]
Could possibly be an issue with the switch itself or perhaps a control module ( if so equipped ) you will need a wiring diagram for your specific vehicle and that specific circuit .
