Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina

98 Lumina running lights and chimes stay on with ignition off

I have a 98 Lumina. When you shut the ignition off, the front marker lights, tail lights, and interior chimes stay on, even with the key out. This does not always happen, but it has happened three times in the last 2 weeks. The only way to get them off is to disconnect the battery. ( I try turning the light switch back and forth, turning the ignition on and off, key in and out of ignition, opening and closing the door, etc.) If the car sits for a while with the battery disconnected, I can re-connect the battery and everything will be back to normal for a few days untill it does it again. It does it with or without the DRL fuse in it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks, John

Do you have a trailer hitch on the lumina. If so look for bare wires causing the problem. I had the same problem with my work truck and found bare wires on the plug which was touching the hitch.

2000. Where is fuse for tail lights?


Do your headlamps work ?
Park/Marker/License/Tail Lamps
Voltage is applied to the turn/headlamp switch at all times. When the turn/headlamp switch is in the PARK or the HEAD position, voltage is applied to the following components:
?€¢
The park lamps


?€¢
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

My tail lights wont shut off


usually when the headlights goes off so does the tail lights thats mean the brake light switch but the side markers are staying on too. it can't be the fuse since they still light. the only thing that breaks the currant is the switch. it sounds like there,s a problem with the headlight switch. the headlight switch operates the side markers and the tail lights along with the head lights. Hope this can helper .

even though you checked all fuses and relays and have power the relay could over heat and shut them down. switch relay with another relay and check again. does the front markers go out also or just the rear?

No ruuning lights no dash light


Check your fuse for your tail lamps. GM runs the dash, park, side marker tail and clearance lamps through the same fuse. This way, if the fuse does blow, you know you have no lights, except head lights. Please read your owner's manual for your vehicle. It should tell you this.
