to on position. Check for 11 to 13 vdc on multimeter. Move red test lead to circuit breaker terminal (3).
Check for 11 to 13 vdc on multimeter. Rotate KEY SWITCH (2) counterclockwise to off position.
Disconnect test leads.
If multimeter does not read 11 to 13 vdc, replace backup light circuit breaker (4)
If multimeter reads 11 to 13 vdc, install instrument panel pad (page 2-424) and go
