With the exception of the brake wire, all wires run in the ceiling, along each side of the center strip of skin (mostly 115V wirs on one side, 12V
on the other). The wires from the 7-pin umbilical connector usually
run up the front wall on the curb side
of the windows.
I'd start right at the 7-pin connector. Make sure the marker lights wire is snug under the screw on the connector. Failing that, it's a real problem, since the marker lights wire is a daisy chain. In a Caravel
, with no side markers, I think there's only two branches--one up front and then a branch going back to the back.
Taking the ceiling down won't necessarily solve your problem, since the branch connections for the marker lights are actually under the domes, not in the ceiling channel. You can get to the front connection by taking out the eyebrow shelf. The marker light wires are accessible behind that shelf. If all your marker lights are not working, I'd bet that that is where the disconnect is, if it isn't at the 7-pin itself.
