The under hood light wont come on unless the hood is forced up higher and then wont stay on unless hood forced further up. Is there a mercury switch that control this. If so where is the access to it. Maybe it is misalligned or needs replacement. Please advise.

yes, there's mercury in it. it's in the cable at the very back of the bulb. try pushing the light bulb housing closer to the hood, or tight against it
have 2001 sub.1500. upper center brake light works when brake pedal depressed but left & right brake lights dont work. bulbs check good. checked for power @ plugs but no power. can anyone offer adv...
I've checked the fuse it's good but there is no power to the fuse and I don't have any lights on my dash.
it started making a squeeking noise and then it started smoking. i pulled over and put oil in. the noise went away but now the check gages and battery light are on and its very hard to steer
It will not go off prior to maintenance it can on.. will the fuses make it stay on if mechanic had switched thw ones under the hood (the two largest ones).
