Bathroom lights not working

All the lights in my A/S work great except in the bathroom. The electrical plugs next to the light switch works also. Maybe its the bulbs, but its hard to believe that all 3 would stop working. This A/S is a recent purchase and I didn't check the lights in the bathroom. Could they be on a fuse? Thanks

Is there a switch on the light fixture itself that may be turned off? The bathroom light in our 06 19' Bambi can be turned off at the light fixture even if the light switch is on...(But yours may have a different set up)...

Ours has the 3 lights in the ceiling, with a wall switch. Thanks

Simplest thing first check the bulbs with an ohm meter or in another socket. If the bulbs are good replace them in the fixture and proceed.

It is unlikely that it is a fuse since only the one room is effected. However check the fuses first to be sure. If the fuses are all good remove the switch from the wall and and check for voltage to ground on both sides of the switch. With the switch off you should only see voltage on one side. With it on you should see voltage on both sides.

If you do not have voltage on both sides when the switch is on the switch is bad.

Assuming you have voltage on both sides of the switch remove the fixture and test for voltage on the incoming wire. If there is no voltage while the switch is on the wire in the wall is open. If you have voltage at the fixture input wire check the ground connection of the fixture, loose screw, broken wire.

If the ground connection is good and still no lights check the wiring in and around the fixture for loose connection or broken wire.

If you have voltage to the fixture and a known good ground and still no lights the fixture is bad.

Sometimes there is also a switch on the light fixture. Also check the 12 volt automotive fuse for that circuit. Even id the fuse looks good, try replacing it.

That was it. Thanks. The light works fine. I hadn't seen the switch under the medicine cabinet.
