SOURCE: 2000 G. Caravan battery discharges & will not start

you may very well be on the right track here... if it were me and my van here, i would replace the dimmer. i bet you can get another from a parts house without going to the dealer. then again... get the price from the parts house and see if the dealer will match the price for the part ( under the current big 3 situation they may do it)

Interior dome lights stay on.


Make sure that the thumbwheel that makes dash lights brighter/dimmer is not all the way to bright. That will turn on dome light. Check fuse block for dome light relay, pull out the relay and see if light goes out, if so try replacing the relay. Possible welded contacts? If all that doesn't work you will have to try each door switch and see if you have a bad one.

Electral the dash lights are not working


check your dash light dimmer switch. it is usually by the headlight switch, it might of gotten bumped accidently. if this doesn't fix your issue then i need to know if all dash lights are out or just the ones in the instrument cluster.

Lights on odometer dash not working; is it a fuse or wiring?


Make sure your instrument panel dimmer switch is not turned down. It is a "thumb wheel" located in the dash to the left of the steering column. Roll the thumbwheel UP to make the instrument panel lights brighter and roll it DOWN to make the lights dimmer.

Where's the location of the second brake switch on a 98' Chevrolet s10?


the brake pedal switch is the one you want, it is on the arm the brake pedal is attached to near the top of that arm, u will need to remove the panel under the dash to see it, here is a picture of that switch.

My turn signals and flashers do not work


under the dash near the steering column will be a unit called the electronic flasher module (don't know exact location as it varies, but it will be labeled). It sounds like the unit has gone bad
