Question about 1999 Chevrolet K1500
I HAVE A 1998 CHEVY 1500 EXT. CAB TRUCK. THE HEADLIGHTS WORK FINE AS A RUNNING LIGHTS BUT AT NIGHT WHEN YOU TURN THEM ON THEY TURN OFF BUT THEY WORK FINE IN THE SWITCH IS IN THE PARKING LIGHT POSITION AND THE HIGH BEAMS DON'T WORK AT ALL, THE INDECATOR DOSN'T EVEN COME ON ON THE DASH. I CHECKED THE FUSES UNDER THE HOOD AND THE FUSE PANEL ON BOTH SIDES OF THE DASH WITH A VOLT METER. I HAVE REPLACED THE LIGHT SWITCH .I HAVE THE REPAIR MANUAL BUT ITS NOT TO CLEAR EVEN THE WIRING SECTION.
If you have replaced the switch, and it is still doing it it sounds like you definately have a short somewhere in your wiring. On the other hand if the dimmer is in the turn signal arm ( forward bright back dim ) the problem could also be there in the dimmer switch, such as a short being caused by that dimmer switch being faulty.Auto Zone and Discount Auto Parts both test a lot of your electrical problems for free, and/or may have some knowledge to more accurately pin point the problem. Not sure about Pep Boys or some of the other discount auto part chains.

If you have daytime running lights but when you turn on your regular headlight on they do not come on. Take the bottom of your steering column off (Two Small Screws) and look at the back of your turn/dimmer switch make sure that the light blue wire is connected. The wires will break off after years of raising and lowering your steering column.
