Default Cargo Light Question....

Hey all i think my dimmer switch is messed up it will dim the dash lights but it wont click to turn on the dome or cargo light. What i was thinking of doing is to clip the cargo light wires and run them up to the dome light wires so that way when the dome light is on the cargo light will be on.

Has anyone ever done this? Does it sound like it will work?

I'm pretty sure the cargo lights are already wired into the dome light.

Does your dome light work properly when the doors are opened? Could be bad bulbs or fuse.

Yea dome lights work when the doors are open i put fresh bulbs in it today because i thought they were bad but nope they weren't.

I have searched it on the net and it says that the cargo light is ran off of the dimmer switch so i wasn't to sure.
