    What is this light?

    Here's a question that isn't nearly as urgent as the seat belt one was. Is the light on the back of the cab a high-mount stop light or just a dome light for the bed?

    Mine has been replaced with.. I think it's electrical tape. I'm not in a hurry to fix it, but want to eventually because I imagine the tape is not going to keep water out forever. Just so I know what to look for, what am I looking for?

    If the socket is still there for a bulb, stick a bulb in and a.) step on the brake then b.) switch on the courtesy light. One of two things will happen

    Also, I have no idea where a cargo light switch would be, but might see if there IS one.

    I'm prone to think it is a cargo light. Do let us know when you figure it out.

    On an '88 model, that will be a bed lamp. The 93/94+ models had high mount brake lights to meet US DOT regulations.

    Mine is a cargo light controlled by the interior dome switch above back glass.

    I cant find the light fixture, or even a bulb for the interior anywhere.

    I have an '86 Mini Ram Sport (maybe different than Max) but my dome light/switch is in the middle of cab above the back glass. It is small just 2.5". There is a dimple in the roof metal for it. I hope this helps. Yours might have been removed for some reason or another.
