You will find the dimmer switch located half way down the steering shaft. Held on by two small screws. It has a steel rod inserted into the top end that goes up the shaft to the lever. Don,t missalign this rod when you install switch.

I am having a problem with the instrument gauge cluster in my 1996 Chevy Cavalier 2.2L Coupe. I have been on here before for problems, and the best one was the dimmer switch could be bad. The problem is...


Aside from the dimmer, there is also a 10 amp fuse you can see in the diagram below. Sorry I cannot find instructions on changing the dimmer, but if you can short the connector and get the lights to come on, then you will know it is bad.

Headlights do not turn on my chevy cavalier. replaced light bulbs and high beams stay on but no low beams.


Sounds like your dimmer switch is stuck on or broken/worn out. Sometimes you can get it back by clicking your high beam switch in & out many times. If it frees up & switches back to lowbeam it will buy you time before you need to replace the dimmer switch. If not you will need to replace it right away.
