Question about 1997 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

Have head and brake lights, no tail or dash lights.

I have head and brake lights, but no dash or tail lights. If we knew where the wires run, maybe could bypass somehow? Multifunction switch has issue with right signal not staying locked when turning; it releases early, but that has been for a long time, the light issue just started.

A simple 12v test light will track this problem down.(Unless someone has been butchering the wiring,it's probably a bad headlight switch).

Either one of your theories is possible. In either event, the steering wheel will have to come off and the assembly inspected/tested.

How to fix my tail lights, my head lights work,brake light works and turn signals work, dash do too


Maybe a broken or lose wire. The turn signal and brake lights operate from one wire and the tail lights operate from a separate wire. It is possible that the tail light elements burned out of both bulbs. Pull the bulbs out and check them first.

What fuse runs the tail lights and dash lights. Dash lights come on when you hit the brakes. Tail lights are not working at all


If the dash lights are coming on when you step on the brakes you have a grounding problem. The brake light are seeking a ground through the dash lights and tail lights. Check the ground wire near the rear of the vehicle, follow the wire harness there should be a wire (probably black) that breaks out and is bolted to the body or the frame. It could be the light socket itself but for both sides to fail is unlikely.
