SOURCE: 99 chevy auto lamp problem

Try hitting your dome over ride switch 4 times with the truck running. You should hear a couple of dings and your headlights should shut off. Now hit the switch 4 more times and see if that resets the auto lamp system. If not the next thing I would check is the brake light switch, its under slightly under the dash attached to you brake pedal. Those can slip out of the proper position and cause problems with some of the electrical systems.

SOURCE: when i turn the key I get no dash lights, 97 blazer

I had the same exact thing happen to me, I have a 97 blazer and after hours of screwing around with it and several different options... it turned out to simply be the ignition switch.

I have a 2003 honda odessy and dash lights and tail light are not working! Please help?

Both are separate fuses, check them first. Dash lights are controlled threw the dimmer switch. Park lights threw the turn signal switch. If you have front marker lights, then the rear is a ground problem. Ground is at the body, in the back, on the drivers side. If no marker lights at all , replace the turn signal switch. If the fuse is good for the dash, replace the dimmer switch.

No dash lights without dome lights coming on too

Hey Heather, you may need a new light switch. the dash lights are on a dimmer that also will turn on your dome light. If all your fuses are good I think that your switch has failed. They also (switch) come unplugged sometimes if you drive on rough roads. Sorry, but that's the best I can do for you.

The instrument panel lights will not come on when I pull on the headlight switch on my 2002 Buick Century Custom.

Is the dimmer switch for the dash lights turned down low ?
If not, the problem could be in the dimmer control.

Dash and radio lights don't work at night. They are on during the day. 2003 Chev Impala. Have checked all the fuses.

The same thing happens on my 2003 Impala. I found that my dimmer switch has an intermittent failure where sometimes the dash lights go out even with the headlights on.
If I wiggle the dimmer just right, the dash, radio, steering wheel, door locks, and every other light comes on (when the headlights are on). My fix was to mount my Garmin on the steering column in front of the speedometer so when the lights go out I know how fast I'm going. A replacement dimmer (or bypassing the current one and adding a resistor) should take care of it.

The digital dash is completely dark, have all lights outside the vehicle but no dash lights

Make sure the panel light dimmer switch isn't turned way down on the headlight switch. If that's OK the dash will have to be replaced or sent in for repair.

95 chevy blazer has dash lights intensity varying while driving

This is not a voltage problem. The problem is in the headlight/dash dimmer. You have to turn the dimmer switch on the headlight switch to select what intensity you have right? try turning it down just a smidge and if it stays steady then it is most likely a dimmer switch problem. This requires replacement of the headlight/dimmer switch to fix. local auto parts shop should be able to have this in stock.
ps dont forget to rate my solution please. Thanks
