Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Dash lights wont hardley dim.

I was recently trying to install a new stereo and while doing so i shorted something out. Now all works but the dash lights wont dim unless i pull the park lamps fuse and set the ebrake before starting. Whenever the park lights are engaged, I have to turn the dimmer knob all the way down or the dash lights will stay on and buzzer will sound once the engine is off,...Like i thinks the lights are left on. Before getting to this point i had to replace both park lamp fusses, inside cab and under hood, and the radio batt fuse... is something grounded out?... Please tell me there is a relay for this because all fusses are checking out good

1998 sunfire installed stereo and now dash lights and tail lights blowing fuse


Get a wiring harness connector for your 1998 GM car - THEN carefully follow each wire color on the harness. Do NOT connect anything to the GM orange wire except "Memory". Do NOT connect anthing to the harness for "Lights" or "Dash" or "DIM" - you will blow fuses. Only connect the Power, the memory and the speakers - period. Then you'll be safe.

Your dash lites are on with headlamps off? I'd check the wiring for headlamp switch/dimmer. Not only check the fuses, check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a test lite. You could use a jumper to bypass dimmer, see if dash lites work.

Dashboard lights not working


No insult intended, but are you sure the lights on dash aren't just dimmed out? I fell for that one when it went through the car wash. Wiping down everything one of them rolled the dash dimmer. Good luck. And that inj looks like an abreviation for injector. That needs to be looked into cause something or an injector is shorted. good luck

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.
