Lights do not work and security light is on and stays on killing battery when not running. are they related ?


Hi Jeff:
Probably the same switch.
If you rotate the switch, the extreme position I think counterclockwise but might be wrong in which case it is clockwise) should turn on the interior (security?) lights. Turning it back just a bit should turn them off.
Pulling the switch should turn on first the clearance (running) lights, and then the headlights.
If they are not working then either the switch is broken or there is a problem with the wiring. That's where a continuity meter and a voltmeter start to be handy tools.
Cheers.

1999 silverado gauge lights do not work


You probably already checked this but the simplest solution is the control used to turn on the interior lights and to dim your dash lights. It is a dimmer switch to the right of your headlight switch. If it is turned all the way down then you would have no dash lights and no headlight chime. Turned all the way up it turns on your interior lights. If this isn't your issue and if no fuses are blown then try to turn the dimmer switch all the way up with your headlights on. If the dash lights come on with the interior lights then your switch is fried and you may have a short in the interior light circuit.

I have a 99 silverado on my way to work all the sudden started acting like it wanted to die no power at all then died replaced fuel filter now the truck will idle but as soo as i give it throttle it b


If the throttle position sensor is bad, you should get a check engine light when the engine is running.
I would check fuel pressure with a gauge at the rail to see if the pump is failing.

1994 silverado illumination on instrument panel doesn't work, parking lights and tail lights do not work but headlights and brakelights work fine. All fuses are good. Is this a bad dimmer switch?


No. Dash lights being out could be a bad headlight switch, since the dash lights are routed through the headlight switch, not the dimmer switch. Park and tail lights also controlled by the headlight switch.

I have headlights and brakelights but no dash lights, tail lights or clear running lights (fog lights) they will come on "sometimes" if i turn the switch on and off a ton of times


Replace the light control switch and if it is a separate adjustment the Dash board or Interior light brightness adjuster. Most likely it is the Light switch so start with that. This assumes all interior fuses and fuses and relays in the power distribution block under the hood are good.

The brakelights,dashlights and headlights all quit working on 1999 chevy lumina. The parking lights, turn signals snd high mount brakelight all work.


It sound like you may have a bad headlight switch. All of those other lights are wired though that switch as well. Be sure to check all fuses and headlight relay.
