You have a short in your lighting wireing it sounds like it is grounding out your ignition system think of any mods you may have made that involve wiring if so disconnect and try again, its a mess trouble shooting wiring. my best advice is disconnect lighting wiring harnesses one at a time trying in between attempts to narrow the search good luck

SOURCE: 1995 chevy z71 k1500 350. breaks wont work

"have put all new breaks, lines, sensors." For the Mechanic to get the brake fluid in the line to the calibers. It has to be pump by stepping on the brakes pedal. You said "no breaks" so that did not happen.

My question is does the master cylinder work? A lot of work was done that was not needed to be done.
The Dealer will not do any thing if they did not work on the brakes. If the Dealer did this job then you can complain about them.

The black box you are referring to is call ABS control module. It should be on under the hood on the driver side of the radiator. These units do fail.
You can go the the Auto store and ask, if they carry it then they will know where it is locate. You can also go to Dealer parts department, they will carry the part and can show you where it is locate.
If you do replace the control module, make sure the brake line is properly bleed of all air.
I do hope this help you

SOURCE: 1995 windstar LX - turn off power headlights stay

This is normal. They time themselves out. Is the switch in the auto position? If so, turn it off, and they will turn off with the car.

1993 chevy silverado parking lamps go of when i turn on headlights, signal lights flicker when i press on brake.

Yes I would look for a ground circuit problem. I would look at the ground wires for the headlights first. Even run a new ground wire for the tail lights to see if it helps.
Could be a ground connection for the body to frame or body to battery.

Replace headlight bulb--unplug from bulb--is there--95 sub-1500-l

Not sure for your model but most press in lightly and turn one way or the other about 1/2 to 3/4 inch. Never force it though as you might have to replace more than you want.

Car died out no inside lights no horn no lights

your battery is dead. attempt to jump off another cars battery please look up instructions on how to do this if you dont know how. make sure to drive your car around after jumping it to help charge the battery, DO NOT JUST TURN THE CAR OFF RIGHT AWAY.
otherwise your battery may just be toast, go to your nearest auto parts store to buy a new battery and have it put in or put it in yourself if jumping doesnt work.

2001 chevy silverado 1500 headlights wont shut off

You will have to have the dealer reset the security light to restart vehicle.Check all engine and chassie grounds because this is where the lighting would exit the vehicle.It sounds like a ground burnt through.

Look for a blown fuse and the cause for it, and your 2nd issue may be resolved also.
