Question about 1995 Pontiac Bonneville
Hi, I have a 1995 Pontiac Bonneville. Both the Parking lights and the interior dashboard lights are not working. The brake lights are still working as well as the dashboard cluster warning lights. I've checked the fuses and all of them are in working order. It seems strange that both the parking lights (not headlights) and the dashboard light bulbs would all go out at he same time. How are the systems connected and what should i check for? Any suggestions? I have the exact same problem...my dashboard and parking lights are not working at all but my fuses are not blown
Check Fuse #6 15 amp under dash in fuse box also check fuse #4 10 amp both run dash and tail lights

Your headlight switch is VERY likely to be bad. If so, it should be replaced ASAP, as it is a possible fire hazard once this problem (it is melted, take it out and you will see).
I had this happen to my 1995 SE (not automatic headlights) in 2008 and 205k miles. The switch was not that expensive and easy to replace, with no special tools needed.

SOURCE: Dashboard Lights/ radio lights
If you have the "twilight" sensor, while there is still a pontiac, call your local dealer and have them check your VIN against the recall list for your car for Headlight relay/twilight sensor. If it is not, then see if you can check out the the combination headlight switch. I had similar problems, switch shorted out (as in smoke coming out of dash and harness melting) Dealer claimed it was not part of recall, so I paid for the Dealer to fix it 3 times--last time I had Him disconnect the twilight sensor ring and shut it off, and havent had problem for 9 years. The switch design does not have enough clearance between paths, and possibly tied in with over currnt from the relay and a bit of dirt allows the switch to short out... last time dealer had to splice in a handfull of wires (Since a new harness is very expensive). Note: Am not a mechanic... this is just an educated guess.
