Is there an outlet outside you door below the awning? On my Cruiser, the switch turns on that outlet. Some connect under awning lights to it and the switch is handy to turn it off and on.

My porch lite turns on a light over the door and under the steps. Both have amber lenses and are low light. Outdoor outlet is on a seperate switch in the panel.

Is it possible that your bulbs are burned out?

Seems to me there is another switch that has to be in the correct position before you can get the porch light to turn on. I would have to go out and double check, but it's like two switches to get it to work. It still catches me at times.

Mark might have it maybe bulbs are out. That would be the simple solution. Your unit is a little older so Lloyd could be on it. Let us know how those options work

You have a porch and scare light switch? I thought they were one and the same. I have one switch that turns on porch light and a light under steps.

lej, I have a 09 33sk and my scare light is centered under the awning, there are two bulbs in it one clear and one amber. clear is scare and amber is porch along with steps. Looks like your amber may be burnt, hope this helps
