    I have an 06 Chevy HHR automatic. The lights in the bottom, center console on the shifter and for the power windows don't work. I don't have issues with any of the other interior lights. Any suggestions?

With electrical problems I always look for a bad ground wire, especially on older vehicles. Look for any wire that goes to an inner fender or the engine, there maybe a faulty relay in the circuit too. good luck, Chuck

Start by setting your auto headlight switch to off if this solves it replace your headlight switch If your car is equipped with daytime running lights there could be a short bridging them with your auto head lights look for broken or frayed wires do this also if you have installed or had someone install an aftermarket stereo or speakers/sub woofer, amplifier. Good Luck with this

When my lights are on, i have no dash or heater controll lights One rear parking light is also out. i have a headlight switch and a seperate dimmer (roll type) switch


The dash lights are incorporated with the parklights. The heater control lights are incoporated with the dash lights. Make sure the dimmer switch is in the full illumination mode. It is possible the park light that is not working is burned out and causing a resistance issue amongst the park light circuitry. Replace the non working park light and retest

Dash lights and parking lights stay on after key is off and dimmer switch is working backwards replaced both headlight switch and dimmer control


the key position has nothing to do with the lights staying on.
That function is controlled by the headlight switch.
Make sure the wires going to it are in the correct location.
Sounds to me like you have 2 wires crossed. (dimmer working backwards)

I have a very clean 89 Crown Victoria from Florida! An old lady owned it bought brand new! I resently replaced all external lights now when I turn on my lights all my front turn signal lights my dash...


The dimmer switch for the headlights only affect the headlights. The dimmer control for the dash lights only affect the dash lights.
So if the parking lights are going off too, I would say its the headlight switch. Thats about the only thing that involves all three circuits.
It could also be the harness plug at the headlight switch.
BTW - the turn signal lights are another circuit from the parking lights.

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.

Dash lights do not work 2000 ford exploier


All go out at once, first check fuses,then dimmer switch for dash lights, finally headlight switch. To check dimmer switch, pull connection off back, on harness with test light and headlight switch activated, 1 of the leads should have power, if so, use ohm meter on dimmer to make sure it has reading between 0 and some value, if no value, open, dimmer is bad, if there wasn't power then check headlight switch, there should be heavier gauge wire that powers switch and 1 for output to hi/lo switch, smaller gauge wires for tail lamps, dash lights, license plate lamps, parking lights. The color wires from dimmer would correspond to the same colored wires on headlamp switch, probe that connection on headlamp switch with switch engaged and see if you have power, if not replace switch, if so, check wire from switch to dimmer.Now if the lights slowly went from bright one day, to less bright some other day, to not working, then the bulbs are bad... good luck...

When I pull the headlight switch out why don't my


This is very common. the headlight switch is bad. replace the switch and that should solve the problem.

i have run into some that the dash lights dont work at all or they come on and off while driving.
the switch goes bad. there is also a dimmer switch . the dimmer switch controls the dim or brightness off the lights.

Lights or fuse for my speed odemeter guage and heater/air conditioning system


These lights for the dash are controlled by a rheostat instrument control dimmer switch next to the main light switch for the headlights, it is either turned off (have seen this dozens of times) or it is defective. Below is a picture of the switch assembly I speak of. The thumb wheel next to the knob is the dimmer control.
