sometimes we panic for nothing

We gotta' watch out for those kinda' problems where we have coincidental problems at the same time.

I just bought a 350SDL and after driving it for a couple weeks I noticed that the inside dome light wasnt working. At that time I noticed that the map light didnt work as well. I was asking everyone why would both of them blow out at the same time and was bummed out thinking about spending $80 on a new interior light unit. This also had the interior temp sensor/fan and sunroof switch with it, thats why it was $80.

Well, anyways after awhile I realized that I NEVER did check to see if the map light worked in the first place. Sure enough, after buying both replacement bulbs, I realized that they were just burnt out and I assumed they went out together from some power surge or something.

Like they say, don't overlook the obvious.
