Replace light switch. Reach under the dash and find the switch you will feel a button on top of the wight switch push it down pull the switch knob all the way out, (Unhook battery first) then unscrew the beauty ring then pull the switch down and then remove wire connector and go buy a new one and replace it. if your a big guy it may give you a problem, but replace it before it burns up your wiring harness.

2005 Chevy equinox when releasing the emergency brake and the headlight switch is on auto the lights come on automatically except the tail lights.

You probably have daytime running lights - when you do this during daylight hours, only the front running lights will come on. If at night, regular headlights and tail lights will come on. If this is not the case, you will have a problem with the headlight control module.

Turn signal doesn't work when headlights on

It sound like you have a grounding problem, does the headlight on the left seem dimmer than the right? Check the ground wires and the light sockets for corrosion.

Chevy k10 headlight/taillight problem

the fuses are located on the left side of the drivers foot well. these trucks have problems with rot and when they start to fall apart the beds move around and short out the taillights and youll usually lose the dash lights with the tails but the headlights are separate.
