There’s two driver wires to the rear dome lamp. The courtesy lamp driver, which turns the lights on when the doors are opened, and the reading lamps driver, which is what makes the map lights come on when you press them. If the overhead console is present (which I already know he has), then the reading lamps driver wire is already present on the headliner harness connector for the rear dome lamp.

troverman Ordered, thanks.

I'm OK with standard bulbs.

TriBeard If I were you, go ahead and order an LED bulb as well and throw that in there before you mount it up.

Ltngdrvr That's just ridiculous that RAM would do them that way.

Well, guess you can get a light assembly from a higher trim level and put it in there.

Ltngdrvr Here's a pic of the one in my truck, on the driver side end of the lens is a "+" intended to indicate where to push on the lens to turn it on, but you can push on the middle as well.

I'd be very surprised if yours isn't just like this.

troverman Terrible shot, taken during the process of installing Katzkin leather, but you can see the light above the passenger headrest in the shot:
