Glovebox Flashlight Question

How can I test if the flash light plug is recieving electricy? I tried putting a volt meter on the two prongs and nothing so I'm assuming mine is not getting juice. Anyone know of a way to fix this or trouble shoot it? My flashlight of course doenst lite up since i guess it hasnt been charging. I also checked the fuse under the hood and it looks good.

TIA

Check fuses 32,33,37 & 44. If they're all good, there could be a break in the wire; you'll have to open the glovebox up and trace it from there

Speaking of glovebox flashlight, does anyone know where to buy one, or is it a dealer part? Also, I have some missing tools in my tool kit in the trunk, do I have to purchase those at the dealer?

BavAuto sells them, but they are expensive. PelicanParts sells them wholesale.

bavauto.com or pelicanparts.com
