Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
When I hit the switch to turn on the headlights, all lights come on except the headlights. Daytime running lamps stay on. Any POSITIVE solutions?
My 2002 S10 had the same problem, I pulled off the bottom of the dashboard and bottom of the steering wheel cover (around 8 bolts). There's a plug on the left side behind the cruise control/high beam stalk with several wires attached to it. Turns out some of the wires had become brittle and moving the steering wheel up and down caused them to short. The four small wires for the cruise control all broke off. I pulled out the metal pins and reattached them to the wires, worked for a while...

I had the same problem with my S10. It turned out to be the headlight switch, located on the dash. A new one from the auto parts store was $20 and took only a few minutes to change. I was told that this is a common problem which was why this part was in stock at the store.

See if you can hold on your highbeams, as a temporary solution, until you can check and see if the fuse in the switch to turn your lights on is burnt out. I had the same problem with my car and apparently it was a defective part that GM had produced, but obviously they won't replace it free of charge. I would suggest going to an auto-wreckers and picking up a new switch there... the part usually costs around $400 in Canada.
