Question about 1996 GMC Suburban
No dash lights on. Tail lights stop working I changed bulbs still no lights.
Well the dash lights and tail lights are on two different circuits and fuses, but both controlled by the headlight switch.
Have you checked the fuses to see if they have power ?

I had a similar nagging problem once, though I do not recall the dashlights being involved. For me, the lines from the brakes went up the steering column to the turn signal. I pulled the wheel and inspected all the connections, and just like that everything worked again. I believe I could have tugged on the wiring harness without pulling hte wheel and obtained the same results.

I had similar problem with my 97 sierra... I only lost 1 light, then brake lights stayed on all the time... turns out the "t" connector for the trailer harness under rear bumper was rotted inside...unplugged the 2 parts of the harness and pluged them into each other with out the "T" harness.... everything works great... Hope it helps ya

You have a short to ground somewhere in the drl-fog lamp circuit. Check for obvious wiring connector or wiring to drl & fog lamps. check wiring for pinched or broken wires coming from sockets. If you don't find problem, you can trace wiring from lamps to main harnesses and hopefully find source of short.
hope this helps.

It sounds like the brake switch, that is usually located along the shaft of the brake peddle under the dash, these sometimes are in a bracket for ajustment may not be able to depress switch. Falow starting at peddle go up to dash, you should be able to see it. Hope this helps.
