    For that Broken Fuse, Use a Pair of Needle Nose Pliers that Have the Insulated Grips and Do Not Touch the Pieces together. They will come out with a Little Play.

There should be a fuse for the dash lights and one for the tail lights.
A mechanic would check for voltage for each circuit at the headlight switch and go from there.

My headlights turned off on my 1998 chevy suburban i replaced headlight switch and i dont see any blown fuses


You might want to check the high/low beam switch, it can fail and take out both head lights if parking lights work but no head lights.

Where is the master switch to turn off the dome light on a 1998 Chevy Lumina sedan?


It should be the small push button on the headlight switch assembly, If no small button is present then it would be part of the dash light dimmer usually it comes on and stays on if dimmer switch is in the full bright position.

Brake lights dont work, the one in the back window does, maybe a ground wire is off? 98 chevy lumina


Make sure both of the bulbs are good first. But the common problem with these body style lumina is the turn signal switch goes open and does not allow power for the lower break lights to work. The 3rd break light does not get power through the turn signal switch. You can by pass the switch and jump the two wires together and make sure they work before replacing the turn switch. There is a big bulk head connector at the bottom of the steering colume. There are lots of wires in there but you are looking for a white wire and an organ wire that are beside each other. I don't have a schmatic at home to give you the pin locations. But they will be on one of the outside connectors. There are 3 sets of wires coming together into this bulk head.
Hope some of that make since?

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