Headlights, interior lights and radio not working on 1989 corvette. checked fuses and they seem to be ok.

If a good visual inspection showed you nothing like a broken, pinched or cracked wire. Check your ignition relay to see if it is good. You can use a 9 volt battery with some wire and touch the wire to the battery then to terminal 85 & 86 on the relay. If you hear it switching it is good. The relay should be under the hood in the fuse block terminal. Something I seen in the past with the same situation on the same vehicle was water in the passenger side tail light. This causeed the ignition switch to short out and changing it fixed the issues. If your relays and fuses are good and you would know that for sure because you tested them with a test light or ohm meter than I would go after the ignition switch. Unfortunatly if you don't know what your doing and it is a wiring issue you may not figure it out. There are a number of things that could cause this issue. Not working could mean the lights are flickering and you can here clicking. I'm assuming the vehicle starts. More detail could help diagnose the root cause.

Hi, my 1988 c4 corvette dashboard lights seem to turn off as soon as i turn my headlights on, my dim switch doesnt seem to be doing anything. what could be the problem and the solution? can someone please...

The fuse block is located under the right side of the dash. Check the fuse called "INST LPS" fuse # 15, it's the one located in the 5th row across and 3rd one down. If the fuse is good, with the ignition in the on position check for 12 volts at the dimmer switch assembly this is a dark green wire. If you have 12 volts replace the dimmer switch assembly, if not repair the dark green wire. Hope this is helpful to you.

85 corvette is showing 16.8 volts on voltmeter and dash lights are flickering.We have checked alternator and battery and both are showing 13.8 volts as normal.

16.9 v will blow every bulb in the vehicle and damage any sensitive electronics. You alternator is runing wide open.and not charging. Actually its the regulator in the altrnator. It will cook your battery as well. need replace and battert check. - good luck
