Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500
1997 turn on the headlights and the instrument cluster turn signal indicators light up (but do not make the turn signal lights to flash just cluster illumination)also the gauges read incorrectly. Turn off the headlights and everything is normal. I think it is a ground but all my schematics do not show where the grounds connect to, the schematic just shows a grounding symbol. thios all happened after I drove down a wet bumpy dirt road. Please help. Thank you

Find the ground wire on one of the lights and add another ground wire to a good clean metal surface and see if that fixes the problem. It defently sounds like a ground problem at one of the lights.

Give this a try------get a piece of wire and strip both ends, the black wire coming out of the plug on the head light, stick one end of the wire in there and the other end to a good ground or the negative battery terminal with the lights on, if the light gets brighter, there is a bad ground to that light. I hope this helps, cause you have just done about everything else.

take a look at the dash ground wire located next to the right of ebrake release handle. if the bole holding the ground wire is loose, which was quite common it will cause all kinds of feed back problems, like described in the comments section to your question.

If you have daytime running lights but when you turn on your regular headlight on they do not come on. Take the bottom of your steering column off (Two Small Screws) and look at the back of your turn/dimmer switch make sure that the light blue wire is connected. The wires will break off after years of raising and lowering your steering column.
