Question about Cars & Trucks
1998 Aurora I have had intermitent issues with dashboard lights going out and tail lights/running lights going out. My turn signals and brake lights work. I took it to mechanic and he said it is the lamp control module and is a dealer part and would cost $500.00. The mechanic stated when he shook the box the lights flashed. Is there a cheaper way around this?
Try shaking it yourself and see if this is so. Also, go on line and purchase one much cheaper. I suspect you may simply need a good ground wire somewhere.

your socket may not be grounded properly, I have seen this before, and the simplest way to fix is change the socket with a new one.Not another used one it may also be bad.

SOURCE: ''96 Silverado no tail lights.
if that doesn't help, you might want to check the bulbs. the damage might have shorted which burned out the bulbs. but you do have one wire that runs to the rear and splits off to the tail lights. the wire should run back to the head light switch via a fuse. the headlights have its own relay. but i hope it is just a fuse.

check fuse to driver side turn signal lamp.check brake light bulb or replace bulb on driver side.also replace the front driver side turn signal bulb that is flashing fast.

Tips for a great answer:
The ambient light sensor indicates daylight.
The vehicle is not in the PARK position.
When the above conditions are met, the lamp control module (LCM) supplies battery positive voltage (B+) to the low beam headlamps through CKT 589 (GRY), the DRL resistor, and CKT 12 (TAN). The DRL resistor reduces the voltage supplied by the LCM. The low beam headlamps light at a reduced intensity. The DRL disable if the vehicle is placed in the PARK position. When the ambient light sensor indicates darkness, the low beam headlamps automatically switch from a reduced intensity to a regular intensity.
