Try taking your switch out ,now using test light find your hot wire. now after you find your hot wire hook your test light to it then pull the switch on and see if you have any power going through the switch .

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.

Dashboard lights and tail lights don't work 95 toyota corolla


The circuits are on two different fuses, but both are controlled by the headlight switch. I would check for power at those fuses then at the switch.

1995 chevy suburban headlights won't come on but running lights work (headlights previously worked). No high or low beams, no high beam indicator light. Bulbs seemed to be ok, fuses seem to be ok....


Common for the wire harness on the switch to go bad. Inspect the wire harness where it clips on to the switch and look for any signs of damage.

The plastic heats up from the current running through the switch and causes it to melt and then you loose connection caused from melted plastic between the contacts from the harness to the switch.

There is a upgrade to the headlight harness which is larger then the ones that came with the Suburban to address this issues. You can get them at the dealer or NAPA i believe.

Good luck and keep us posted. Thank you for using fixya and stay safe.

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.

1995 mote carlo ls headlights come on, but parking lights wont, neither will dash lights? Checked all fuses, but not relays.


If you'vegot headlights, brake lights and blinkers, but no park or tail lights and no dash lights, it's time to replace the headlight switch. Hopethis helps.
