Headlight switch 1998 chevy s10 exended cab 4x4

The headlight switch for my truck is not working. you put it in the park light position but the headlights stay on. i even tried pushing the dome light switch 4 time, ( which works on other models of s10's) but this does not fix the problem either. also, is there a place where i can purchase a higher amp alternator without redoing the wiring harness???

Try putting the emergency brake on and then put the head lite switch to the park lite position, if the head lites do not cme on then they are your daytime running lites. as for a larger altenator this depends on what amperare of one you have now, but in most cases you can get a higher amp. altenator. you will have to find out what amp yours is and any parts store will be able to get one for you.I assume you want the bigger altenator for charging an auxillary battery, ( camper, trailer, or you have lots of extralites on your vehicle ).
hope that you find this to be helpfull.

1997 Ford E350 clearance lights don't work

First check the fuse, the clearance lights are not factory in most cases and the wiring gets shorted from poor wiring. Once you replace the fuse see if the lights come on, if the fuse blows right away find the wiring to the clearance lights and disconnect them, if the short goes away it is a I said the wiring is shorted. If you don't have the owner's manual you should be able to download it at the link provided. It should be fuse #10 a 20 AMP in the interior fuse box.

Dash lights do not come on at night on a 2003 s10

Check to see if you have power to the "ILLUM" fuse in the instrument pane fuse block (drivers end of the dash). there should be power with the headlight switch in the park or headlight position. If there is no power than make sure the dimmer control is not turned off on the headlight sitch. If is is not off than sheck for power on the dark green wire on the connector for the headlight switch. If there is no power an there is power on the orange wire than unplug the connector and jump those tow wires. If the dash lights come on replace the headlamp switch.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help.

My Friend has a 91 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.7 Liter 4x4, the dash lights and parking lights are out, the brake lights work. He has checked the fuses. What do you think it could be? Thanks

most likely have a bad headlight switch. It is possible for parts of the switch to burn out while the headlights continue to function. headlight switches are cheap at your local part store and pretty simple to install

Is it possible for a light switch circut in the switch to go bad only in the park light position? headlights work,

You say that the headlights work. The parking lights don't. My question is...are the parking lights working properly when the headlights are on? If they are working in conjunction with the headlights, but won't work independently, then the problem might lie in the switch. Hope this helped and best wishes.
