I'd say you have a bad ground somewhere,and there's no easy way to find.what I would do is at each connection front or rear I would find groundcut it and splice in a knew one. what james said about the swich getting hot does happen if you have a bad ground.But theres other places to check to.fuse box,may have a short,any wires that look burnt I would trace them.wire coupleings,go and get some eletrical grease and put on and into all couples and connections. good luck

I had this problem once! I traced it to the light switch. It got hot so many times over the years that the connection on the wire ends on the back of the switch lost contact. They are the flat push on pull off type. I had to cut the one going to the running lights out of the bundle with a dremel ,install a new end and push it on last after I had pushed the main bundle back on. That got it going!

My 1993 chevy cheyenne k1500 turn signals and parking lamps don't work, but the head lights do. When ever I turn on the hazard lights they work then but other than that, no.


Most likely its your turn signal switch. For some reason GM decided to run all the lights except headlights through it. You most likely don't have brakelights either. Sometimes you can verify by pushing a little forward or backwards pressure on the hazard switch and everything will start working.

1994 silverado illumination on instrument panel doesn't work, parking lights and tail lights do not work but headlights and brakelights work fine. All fuses are good. Is this a bad dimmer switch?


No. Dash lights being out could be a bad headlight switch, since the dash lights are routed through the headlight switch, not the dimmer switch. Park and tail lights also controlled by the headlight switch.

Rear brakelights and turn signals do not work


The turn signal and brake lights are controlled by the turn signal switch.
You did not mention parking lights so I will assume they work.

Could be a faulty turn signal switch or a wiring problem between the dash and the rear of the van.
Do the hazard flashers work on all four corners ?

My brakelights are both not working after changing the bulbs, changing brake pedal sensor, and checking all fuses. The running lights, parking lights, turn signals, hazard lights all work. Please give me...


Probably the blinker switch ..The brake light circuit runs through the blinker switch..Let somebody look and while you have the brakes applied move the switch around and see if the lights come on

The brakelights,dashlights and headlights all quit working on 1999 chevy lumina. The parking lights, turn signals snd high mount brakelight all work.


It sound like you may have a bad headlight switch. All of those other lights are wired though that switch as well. Be sure to check all fuses and headlight relay.

1999 2500 chevy suburban parking lights, dash and taillights will not turn on but headlights and turn signals still work.. I have checked fuses and found nothing wrong??? could it be the head lamp...


The tail lights run through the headlight switch, they also run through the combination switch(turn signals) that is a known issue for those trucks try messing with the hazard light switch and see if the start functioning, also if you have a tow package the lights have seconday fuses and relay in the electrical box under the hood

Headlights don't work.


There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.
