Question about 2003 Chevrolet Venture Passanger

Please help: Connecting to the dashboard light

I just bought a new accessory that can be lit up when connected to the dashboard light. The only wiring instructions on the package are the following: "connect one of the wires to the dashboard light and one to the carbody-earth". Can anyone help me locate the dashboard light connection and a good place for the carbody connection for a Chevy Venture 2003.

Do you own and know how to use a 12 volt test light? If so you will have to pull outthe instrument cluster and use the test light to determine which wire is the dash light feed. While you have the cluster out you should see some groung trees under there just gound your other wire there. Sometimes there is a light in the ashtray that is easier to get to that pulling the cluster. Just tap into that wire and you can use the cigar light ground wire for your ground. Go buy a pack of scotch locks and some wire and get to it. Also if you are a DIY you really need a test light.

Headlights only work on bright


i had this happen with my dodge ram 1500. the guy i bought it from put 350 dollar moon lit lights in with leds and they looked impressive but the issue was that they didnt go bright and i could only see 40 feet in front of me and i was sure taping led flashlights would have done me more good that those stupid headlights. then i had the idea of if the brights work and the dims dont then that means no electricity is getting to the dims so i decided to bridge the power from the bright headlight to the dims and it made all four work. now they all work, and only on bright. so im figuring there is a issue with the wiring in the truck. so this is a temporary solution if you really need just plain old lights like i did because i live out in the country

My cruise controll has stopped working and my dashboard lights have stopped working also. All of my idiot lights work including the turn signals. I just cant see the speed at night! Please help


The Dashboard light dimmer control is probably stopped working because one of the tiny eletronic bits inside it has died. A temporary fix is to remove the connecting plug on the rear of the unit and put a bridging wire across the terminals. The cruise control problem could have several causes. They operate on engine vacuum so check the hose going to the cruise control unit in the engin bay from the inlet manifold. If the hose is cracked or hard there will not be enough vacuum to operate the cruise control.
