lights attached to brush guard

Hello.

So When I bought my jeep in july it came with this brush guard as well as 2 mounted lights attached. These lights are not working. I'm trying to trouble shoot them.

My question is where is the most likely place they would be connected to?

And before I try to search for the connection, should I check to see if its the bulbs? How would I even know what kind of bulb to buy?

Thanks.

You are correct. However, the wire seems to go into a dark abyss. Which is why I asked the question to perhaps get an idea of where it may be.

Check the grounds first, sometimes it's where the light bolts to the brushguard and that gets a bit rusty. Check the wires with a voltmeter if you have one or can borrow one. Really though you're going to have to chase the wires to check for any exposed wire causing shorts just to be safe.

Easy to just check to see if the damn bulbs are burned first. I replaced a few of mine and oila! I thought it was going to be electrical crap and $$$! Thank GOD it was easy.

your going to have to trace them back. Only 1 person knows where the wires run and thats the guy who originally installed them.
