Dimmer switch replacement

Can you tell me what is involved with replacing the dimmer switch on a 1998 Chevy Silverado 1500K. Currently quoted a 750.00 repair due to having to take out steering column and air bags. Is this true? Thank you, Ann

Air bags have to be removed, but the steering column could be left in vechile. Although, it is easier to work with when it's out of vechile. And I'ld go someplace else. That seems a bit high for that job.

How do I replace the dimmer switch in a 1991 chevy silverado 1500

I couldn't find a self-help YouTube video specific to your vehicle, however I would recommend purchasing a service repair manual book or e-download specific to your vehicle; like Chilton, Motors, Haynes, etc., or calling your local Chevy dealership's service dept or parts dept and see if they'll tell you how.

Which catalytic converter do I replace on a 1998 chevy silverado 1500k with a PO430 error code

Pull the 02 sensor ahead of the cats and see which one allows the engine to run best and that is the one you want to change. On a 199 you may want to change both because about time you do one it won't be long before you do the other.

Headlights do not turn on my chevy cavalier. replaced light bulbs and high beams stay on but no low beams.

Sounds like your dimmer switch is stuck on or broken/worn out. Sometimes you can get it back by clicking your high beam switch in & out many times. If it frees up & switches back to lowbeam it will buy you time before you need to replace the dimmer switch. If not you will need to replace it right away.

Dashboard control panel lights on 2001 Chevy Silverado go off. Sometimes they come back on when I hit a bump. Electronic odometer, Drive indicator lights go off.

This could be either a bad headlight switch or dimmer switch. Sometimes the dimmer switch gets dust inside it and causes these symptoms.

1998 chevy 1500k truck will not shift out of park when it does it drives and shifts fine.

Check brake light switch. When brake pedal is pushed to take shift lever out of park,switch sends current to a magnetic lock on steering column to release from park.
I have a 97 Z71 that had the same problem. I put on a new brake light switch and it took care of my problem.
