There should be a fuse for the dash lights and one for the tail lights.
A mechanic would check for voltage for each circuit at the headlight switch and go from there.

1996 Chevy Lumina Car. No dash gage lights. Radio works and has lights.Which fuse should I replace? There isn't one that indicates dash. Service Engine light sometimes comes on for a day or so and then...


It's probably the dimmer switch, chevy is bad for them going out or shorting. It should be on the fuse with the dome light. Try working the dimmer back and forth, see if it works then.

2005 Chevy Cobalt lights turn off


automatic headlights are controlled by a photo sensor on the dash located in front of the Instrument cluster. to test the sensor try covering it and see if the headlights come on. faulty wiring in the circuit could also cause this problem. the headlights and the radio are wired together and the "auto" function will cause the radio to get brighter when its dark out, thus the combination of problems.
