Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina
I replaced the lamps and changed out the switch. When the switch is on, the tail lights work as do the brights.......no dims or park. What could possibly be the problem? Fuses seem in tact.

Tips for a great answer:
The marker lamps
The tail lamps
The license lamp
The front marker lamps are grounded through the turn filament of the respective front park/turn lamp. The front marker lamps light as a result.
The automatic lamp control function turns on the park lamps and the headlamps. This action occurs when the ambient light sensor determines that the exterior lamps should be turned ON based on the amount of available light. When the BCM grounds the park lamp relay, voltage is supplied directly to the park lamps, bypassing the turn/headlamp switch assembly. When this action occurs, the following conditions exist:
The automatic lamp control relay is grounded.
The headlamps turn ON. Refer to Headlights/Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Circuit Description .
The lamps turn OFF when the BCM does not ground the park lamp relay or the automatic lamp control relay. This action is caused by the following conditions:
The available light reaches a predetermined level.
The ignition switch is turned to the OFF position
