Question about 2001 Chevrolet Blazer

3 Answers

My dash lights don't work.

I have a 2000 Chevy s10. The problem is i went to put an after market stereo in and after i put in the dash lights flickered and went out. They haven't worked sense. So i put my stock radio back in. TYhe stock radio still works. I then checked my fuses and found my 20 amp illumination fuse was blown and replaced but still no dash lights. Another thing that happens is when my dash light switch is not on the radio has a display and it works 100%. But when the i go to turn on my dash lights or when they just go on cuz of the whole sensor deal. The radio has no display at all and no dash lights. But i checked both fuse panels and nothing is blown. I dont know what i did but it suxs. And also all the lights work out side parking lts to i dont know what else it could be.

This got easy after a while 2 ways, i had friends who would not take the time to spend 8dollars to buy a harness connector for a new cd player and would splice everything together like takeing the red and yellow wires and connecting them all together as one. this drains ur battery unless ur cd player can completly power down by the power button not all do... but keep this in mind on GM cars the 2 wires of the same wires like purple the one with a black stripe is ground they go together stripe on stripe also there is 2 extra wires one is ORANGE and BROWN u dont need these dont even mess with them even if u have a connector block them off THESE TWO COLORS IS FOR FACTORY STEREO IF SO THESE WIRES CAN AND WILL MAKE IT SO U DONT HAVE DASH LIGHTS so always buy a connector ond dont mess with these wires block them off and dont ground them out.

I'm thinking that the orange wire on the harness grounded out on something and fried the dimmer switch.

Since this thread has been out there a while, I'm assuming its fixed? Let us know what the problem was.

Sounds like you didn't ground the stereo. If it has lights built in you have to ground it. You may have fried everything because of this.

I have a 2000 Chevy s10 and the dash lights went out all the fuses are fine I think so what else could be wrong


Gauges work and no back lights. Would be a bad connection at the plug. Pull the cluster. No gauges and lights would be a bad ground. They are usually mounted at the steering column bracket. Under the dash.

Dash light doesn't work


Check fuses for dash light / instrument display. If the fuse is good, you may want to check if stereo share an illumination wire with dash. You may have broken the connection behind stereo.

obviously it may have to do with the installation of the new stereo, while installing some fuse may have blown or wires are cut or wires were not put back in order.

I hooked up an after market stereo and now my speedometer lights don't work. Know why? On my 01 echo.


the bulb could have been bad, yet the aftermarket stereo wiring takes voltage from your dash, hence the illumination/dimmer. really dont need those wires. they hook up to your dash lighting, and draw power from your dash, take those wires out and see if any changes. Id first take the wires out, if no change then the bulbs are probably bad.

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.
