If you Stream long enough: lucky wiring solution


Our 2007 Safari FB has 150,000 miles. And like if you live long enough everything happens to you, well it happened to me.

My front interior lights and stereo went dark. After a thorough check, I wired power to them from the subwoofer circuit. And snaked wires to the stereo/lights. Worked.

A month ago the bathroom lights quit. After a thorough check, I wired power to them from the switch. And snaked wires way in back to the lights. Worked.

Two weeks ago the bath fan quit. One week ago the two fantastic fans quit. AAACCKKK!

So after taking it all apart I decided to snake wires to the bath fan cause
they appeared to be on the same circuit as the fantastic fans. I tried it with an external wire, and it worked. SOOOO,
As I snaked the wire behind the bathroom sink, the fantastic fans went on, then off.
There is a multi-wire connector back there. But it looked plugged in. I touched it and LO, it fell apart. After effort, I plugged it back in and locked it. The bath fan and the fantastic fans worked! I took off my bath light wiring, replugged the original, and the bath lights worked! I believe it probably would solve the front light problem too. I took all my wiring out.
It is possible after all this time and miles, either the plug was never totally locked, or it just fell out from vibration. Wisdom does not necessarily come with age, but luck does.
