Cable - Cargo Bed Light
The light in my bed cover has never worked since I purchased the vehicle earlier this year. Nice day today so thought I'd investigate. Discovered what would have been obvious to an experienced owner is the cable running up into the carpeted cover is missing (see picture). Further investigation, the ERK option for the bed cover wasn't an option for my truck. I assume the previous owner added it after the fact. Oddly enough, there was a 15amp fuse in slot 40, which I have pulled, but assume he neglected to add or run the cable.
1) I read somewhere that the cable exists for all SSRs, is hidden in the vehicle for those w/o the option???
2) Alternatively, could I run my own wiring from the source up to the light???
3) Final question, where would I find the source if I elect to run my own wire???
Information, suggestions and recommendations welcomed.
