Default Center console and door lighting going out over bumps.

My door switch lighting on both front doors and my center console lighting go out and come back on simultaneously when I hit a bump. Any advice on where to start or a wiring diagram that I can locate a likely plug or ground that is going bad?

Before I forget a X300 came into a salvage yard Thursday that may have a original alternator for the taking , I didn't look at it as was looking at other things .

Now back to your lights

See page 92 or abouts

Is there a group of lighting in the print that matches your issue ?

I see a single bulb center consol switch pack and a driver and pass door switch pack , is that the area of interest ?

They have different grounds so that rules that path out

By putting the small dimmer knob on the steering column to override does that make a difference as you test drive it ?

You need to clean and tighten the grounding stud on the back of your head unit.

Seems no change but that makes sense since my dah lights are unaffected and they are on the circuit. I have it fairly well isolated using those diagrams. Now I need to hunt for wires and plug. I'll probably start with center console and check grounds then branch out from there. Probably a loose plug somewhere.

Thanks for the help and ideas!!!
