Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier
GM actually did something that I thought was rather clever in the '90's. Whenever one of my rear light bulbs would burn out, I would lose my dash lights. I suggest that you check all your rear lights, brake lights & reverse included as well as turn signals. Start with regular tail lights, that's what was always burnt out on mine. I sure hope this is the problem. I was so glad when it was something that simple on mine.
Good Luck! Let me know, OK? I would like to know how I'm doing, too.
Thanks so much! I like to start with the simple things, instead of jumping to $$
from the start.

The Tail lights and Instrument lights are usually on the same circuit so both will go out if the fuse for the circuit blows. Check for a blown fuse for this circuit and replace if out. If fuse continues to fail, check the tail light or side globes for a faulty globe and replace if necessary. Also check for any chafed wires that could be shorting to the body causing the fuse to blow.
