It the switch or the ground straps.

Sorry. I am a woman. Knows al lot about cars but I don't know what the ground straps is.


That's the big black wire that comes off the battery and.attaches to the frame. That makes for a good ground for a good electrical circuit. Check and see if it is nice and clean on all connections.


Ask same body to help you, connect a wire to the battery ground (- pol) and to the sheet metal on the light, If no response, connect a wire on the battery + pol and to the light wire Connection, If light working OK it is a switch, if not I need more info.
