Question about 2000 Chevrolet S-10
I dont know if its a fluke or what,but the dash lights for speedometer and tach dont work,checked fuses,bulbs behind cluster,all good. now there is a green wire I didnt use on stereo plug in. I really dont think that has anything to do with it due to the fact I believe one of the power wires going to the stereo is for the lights,and the dimmer switch controls that wire I think. I have no wiring diagram on this unit. Im trying to get it repaired for my daughter,so she can see what speed she is going at night. Please help I have a similiar problem. I have had aftermarket cd players in before. I recently put one in and didn't realize it (because it was light out) that my dash lights are out. I pulled the radio out, and completely unplugged it. Still doesn't work. I also have another problem now. When it's like out, and just the daytime running lights are on, everything works fine. When the regular lights kick on, or if I manually turn on my lights, the right blinker blinks fast. I changed all the bulbs and still no success. When the lights are on if I press the break, the reverse lights turn on. It's very annoying. All fuses have been checked and turned out fine. Please help me..I can't see how fast I'm going without turning on the dome light.
I hook up sony to my 93 10 and dash lights and runnung light dont work fuse is good cant find right wire to hook it up tp plzzz some give me a idea

Do not hook up the Dimmer wire from the aftermarket stereo! This can cause electrical issues such as a switch or worse to go out.

Check out the Dimmer Switch Assembly - it may be faulty or there may be a short. I had a simular problem - resolved by replacing.

you have to run a jump wire to you cluster when you pull the factory unit out the aftermarket units are wired just a little different find your illumination wire should be orange and make sure it is wired correctly you may have to tie it in to a different wire,,,, i did this on several gm trucks i cant remember which wire i had to jump it to but i belive i tied the amp and illumantion wires together and made it work your fuse will protect you from doing any damage if you should jump the wrong wire...
