Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
My car has been having problems left and right. First the lock switches did whatever they wanted while in park and out. Fixed that, then my dash lights went out, along with the A/C lights (for the knobs) and my consol shift lights also don't work. Fuses are good. Even took out the good ones and replaced with new ones. I haven't been able to fix that problem, but we cut some lights under the dash to help illuminate the gauges. my other problem is my rear lights. one side light works, all the others dont when driving. the brake lights work, and the signals. we've checked the bulbs and put new bulbs in and also new fuses still don't work. What's going on?

The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

SOURCE: My dash lights don't work.
this got easy after a while 2 ways, i had friends who would not take the time to spend 8dollars to buy a harness connector for a new cd player and would splice everything together like takeing the red and yellow wires and connecting them all together as one. this drains ur battery unless ur cd player can completly power down by the power button not all do... but keep this in mind on GM cars the 2 wires of the same wires like purple the one with a black stripe is ground they go together stripe on stripe also there is 2 extra wires one is ORANGE and BROWN u dont need these dont even mess with them even if u have a connector block them off THESE TWO COLORS IS FOR FACTORY STEREO IF SO THESE WIRES CAN AND WILL MAKE IT SO U DONT HAVE DASH LIGHTS so always buy a connector ond dont mess with these wires block them off and dont ground them out.

The park lock
safety system gets power from the brake light circuit, this means
unless the brake lights work and the pedal is depressed the system
locks the shifter in the part position. The first thing you do is
check the brake lights, if the lights work you have other issues best
left to the dealer if the brake lights don't worth then you have
found the cause and just need to repair the brake lights, this can be
the brake light switch or the wiring connector to the switch. Repair
