Instrument panel lights arent coming on in my 1984 chevy c10 scottsdale. Please help!


Make sure the dimmer portion is not turned to the low/off position on the headlight switch. This will turn off/fade the dash lights

Break and battery light stays on all the time


sold all over earth, what country> we cant guess this....
don't break the brakes....!!!
my guess, you meant the
brake lamps are on keys in pocket. and the battery lamp is dash(charge) glows, keys in pocket. right?
and battery cable kills all this illegal states above. sure.

86 nissan PU.
720 PU>? Datsun>?
or D21 Nissan ( 1986 Dat-SUNS became NISSANS. in USA)
Model years 1986.5 (second half) and later were called Nissan Hardbody Trucks, chassis code D21.

D21 are called HARD BODY trucks. mid year changes.
so???? which is yours.

as you might not ,know , the models are wired diffrent by different exact models and country.
long ago , i had the 86 with the VG30 V6...

so i will roll the dice and answer for
D21
ok?

things off stay on, 101
bad wiring, hacked in wiring, radios,alarms and other things.
all can cause this..... its old and is common on old cars.
but if wiring is not hacked, (id see that in 10seconds in person)
no hacks.
gas engine car not diesel.
USA 86 body
brakes
Im looking now at the schematic and this car has a hot at all times
brake lamp switch. (foot pedal switch)
SO only a bad switch can cause this.... period
now the dash charge (battery ) light stuck on.


my online source ,has the alternator system missing.
so can not comment.
the lamp gets its power from the key switch
if the key switch fails , all warning lanps glow not just the
charge.(battery)
so its not that
my best guess is wiring errors, that put power the the cluster
key off. id bet that is it .

wiring errors to the ignition output is side, key switched power is failing.

My 1983 chevy scottsdale blinkers dont work and when i push on the brake pedal, the indicator lights inside and out come on. i was told that the flasher switch can get stuck and cause this problem but


Are you sure that maybe someone was talking about the turn signal flasher, which I believe is located under the left side of the dash in the fuse box. It's usually a round device that just plugs in with two spade terminals on the end where it installs in the fuse box. It's also very possible that you have a bad ground somewhere. Hope this helps, Jeff Horton

I have an 86 volvo, brake lights were working then suddenly not. Ive checked bulbs, wiring. Tale lights work, headlights work, but no brake lights. Please help .....sincerely, girl that doesnt know...


It coould be the brake light switch, the wiring or the bulb failure relay under the dash. You will need a test light and a wiring diagram to find the problem. If you can get someone knowledgable about cars to help you, I can send you a wiring diagram.

I have an 86. Under the dash on drivers side are two 1/4 turn black knobs that release a cover over the fuse panel. There is a diagram on the inside.

Were is fuse for brake lights located at not well marked 1978 chevy truck scottsdale cannot find fuse


Since all your fuses are in one place under the dash, you can use a test light and probe each end of every fuse with a test light in under ten minutes. Likely much faster than looking for a diagram. Also use the test light to check voltage at the brake switch and at the lights themselves. I'd definitely make sure the socket shells are properly grounded on anything that old as well.
If I remember correctly, the brake lights are routed through the turn signal switch on those so if you can't find the problem I'd look there as well.

Brake lights are staying on constentily except in park


Also check the light bulbs in the 3rd brake light. If they are out (burned out or removed) the brake lights will remain on. I found this out by trial and error. I replaced the brake switch, tested voltages also and everyone told me that the 3rd brake lights should have nothing to do with it. But the do, don't know how or why, ford dealer wanted to charge me $86 for diagnositcs and $70 for complete 3rd brake assembly. Went to Napa and got bulbs for $5.00 (5 bulbs) and everything works now. Also this causes the cruse control not to work.
