SOURCE: no instrument panel lights on a 2003 chevy monte carlo

Most likely this is caused by either the dimmer being turned off (happens all the time on my Corvette) or the dimmer is defective.

SOURCE: 2003 chevy silverado will not shift into drive or overdrive.

transmission shift solenoid is stuck open this is a common vehicle issue in automatics and not particular to any make or model vehicle 15 dollar part and arm and leg for labor if taken in

heres an idea to try
take out the transmission filter and replace with new one make sure to take not of any metal debry in trans pan this indicates the trans had sheered its gears down and a trans rebuild is needed
the transfilter needs to be changed at a certain milage interval they can get clogged up
there is a kit you buy for your truck at any parts store
its an easy change hour of time unbolt trans pan unbolt trans filter and put new one in
kit comes with new seals less than an hour you can do it yourself

to overdrive you would feel a difference in shift badley if it was that something to keep in mind

SOURCE: Tail lights don't work on 1998 Chevy Silverado.

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

SOURCE: tail lights and instrument panel lights dont work

The Dash and Tail lights connect to the same fuse in most cars. if the fuse is okay, check to make sure the tail lights and/or dash lights are properly grounded. all bulbs could be blown...but highly unlikely.

SOURCE: some dash lights do not work

if the headlight switch were bad....all of the instrument panel lights would be out, same with the fuse. More than likely you have some individual bulbs out, to change them requires disassembly of the dash. If you are not comfortable with that disassembly, I would recommend that you consult a shop. If you are comfortable with it, I'd say grab a Haynes book and go for it!

Shift indicater not working right wont go back to park

I would suspect the neutral safety switch, which should also be the the break light switch and may even communicate with the cruse Controll! If this is not the case then you have a physical problem with the linkage!

No overdrive

It really has to have a scanner on it to tell. But here are some things you can try. The OD button is in the off position. Try cycling it as you drive. The light could be bad and you don't know it's off. put the shifter in first gear position, up shift manually. Does it go from first to second? Second to third? You could have lost a gear. Usually first. Usual sign for this is no power take off/sluggish. All of these would throw a code. Some wont turn the check engine light on. Again a scanner is needed. Basically the toque converter clutch solenoid is not engaging..Could be internal problems... Dirty and/or the solenoid is bad.

2oo3 chev 4x4 transmission wont shift into 3rd gear. wen i go into 3rd it seems like it stuck in neutral. 1st and 2nd gear are ok.

sounds like third gear went south for the winter and it is not coming back. take it to a tranny shop and don't be too surprised when they hit you with a repair estimate of a $1000.00 and up as they might just have to overhaul the whole thing(sorry i know that this is bad news but itis what it is)

Dash lights, speedometer light, gear indicater lights don't work on 99 gmc truck


The gear indicator display can be repaired, the problem is due to a failed solder joint on the circuit board, it's not a difficult fix. There's a guide available for it here - Silverado odometer problems
