    What's The Deal With My Under Hood Light?

    Here's one I'm stumped on. The under hood light on my 1996 Deville will blink on and off a couple of times when I use my keyless entry fob to lock or unlock the doors, however it won't stay on with the hood open, as I assume it should so you can see what you're doing under there in the dark. So, what's the deal? Am I doing something wrong? Is there a secret on switch I'm missing or what? Seems to me like it should stay on as long as the hood is open. Can anyone "enlighten" me on this? LOL!

    Think the parking lights have to be on for underhood light to work.

    Yeah, after some searching, I was able to find that out. I will check it tomorrow and see if that does the trick. Seems dumb to me to need to have the headlights or parking lights on to use the under hood light, but whatever. I'm learning as I go and I still love my Deville!

    When all else fails, read the owner's manual. It's in there. (parking lights ON for underhood light - because you usually don't need it during daylight)(same for my 2002 STS)
