Have you checked to see if the choke is on? this light lets u know the choke has an open circuit, it is heated by stator wire from the alternator.

My 2005 Chevy impala makes a light beeping sound while I am driving but there is nothing on the dash that warns of a problem. It beeps lightly the whole time I am driving.


that is weird, could be a squeak in your hvac fan, see if it changes with speed of fan, usually a beep is accompanied by a light on the dash as well

When i push brake on 81 vette, the rear window defrost button lights up and the fuel gague pegs over full. when not pressed they function normally


sounds like you have a bad ground in the dash area or possibly the brake arm is contacting or rubbing a wire when you press on it. these wires problems are hard to find and take a lot of time. start by investigating the brake peddle area

Removing the whole pop head lights assembly from my 1997 corvette


Raise the headlights, either with the switch or manually by turning the knob on the headlight motor counter-clockwise.
Unplug the lights NOW to avoid an accidental closing on your fingers,
Remove the 3 philips screws holding the black plastic surrounding the headlights, and slide it forward, there is a small clip on the top that helps hold it to a corresponding clip at the top of the headlight,
Look inside the cavity and you can see the 5 nuts/bolts ( 6 on later years ) that need to be removed,
If you are on the driver's side you can now remove the whole assembly, on the passenger's side you must first unplug the headlight door control module.

I have an 81 vette and the power lock lock the door but will not unlock?


Are you getting power to the solenoid when you press lock/unlock? If you are, because of the age I would suggest looking at the door latch asm.'s. They are known to rust up and cause malfunctions.

Radio


What system do you have? The Delco Bose system has amps in the speakers. If they're out, you get no sound. You may have power out of thge receiver to the amp, but none from the amp to the speaker. I have two speakers/amps that went out on me.
