Question about 1985 GMC C2500
Thanks for the advice yeaterday wondering if i can ask more of a quiestion changed the dimmer switch it was bad but still no lights the guy at auto zone said it could be a bad wire going into the fuse box but i have no clue how to check that or change that Please any advice would be great
No Problem-Glad to Help! About the Best way to get to that wire and find out which one it really is is to get the Voltage Tester that I told ya about Before. Orielley Auto Parts has the best Selection and Really know their Stuff. If you don't have one near you go to Auto Zone and tell them that you need to locate a Faulty wire as Cheap as Possible and they can Help ya. When you get to that Point open the Hood and disconnect the Headlight harness from the Light (will work the same with other lights too). With the Headlights OFF and the Ignition turned to Start Check the Gold Leads inside the Harness for Power. The Voltometer Instructions will let you know what you are looking for, Probably 12 on the Meter will let you know that there is Power going to the Lights. If that is all good then go to the Fuse Box and Locate ALL the Fuses that have to do with Lights. Leave the Fuses in and Check the Gold Parts where the Fuse fits into the Box. If you find it you can always run an External wire from the Lights back to the Box. Sometimes the Fuse boxes are a REAL BEAR to get to and work with. Let me Know what you Find!
