I’m wondering if anyone has had a similar issue. My 2008 Honda Pilot has a passenger side map light out. I have tried replacing both the bulb, and the entire assembly. The map light still doesn’t work. Any suggestions?

Check the electrical connector, contacts, and wiring for any issues such as loose connections or corrosion. If you have a voltmeter measure across the terminals of the non-working bulb. There should be ~12Vdc.

Thanks. I don’t have a Voltmeter but will try to get one. Nothing looks unusual of what I can see.

The drivers side on my 08 has been flakey as well. Sometimes I can get it to come on by pounding on it a couple times, but that doesn't last long. I haven't had the time to disassemble it to see if I can figure out what's happening. Please let me know if you figure it out! :D

Electric troubleshooting is always the same: make sure you get 12V and ground. One without the other is not enough.
