Anything related to headlamps, instrument lights, door locks, etc... is typically related to a separate module called the BODY CONTROL MODULE (BCM)

99 bonneville, door locks not working, interior


It could very well be the dimmer switch. There is a plastic cover around the steering wheel held by a few screws. Remove the cover & replace the switch. First check headlight grounds for good connection. A common problem with well used cars is that after opening & closing the drivers door 2 million times the electical wires at the flex point where the door harness flexs tend to break. Open outer cover & pry back to expose the wires inside. The ones that are broken are the culprits. Hope this helps you & please recommend advice.

1985 Fiero: headlight doors will not open


Your headlight motors are bad. Pre-87 cars had a terrible problem with this, upgrade them to the 87-up style. Firebird/Corvette motors are the same.

2000 S10 ZR2


Replace the dimmer switch insid ethe dash it is usually separate from the headlight switch in these trucks. If not then get a known good switch out of a simial truck from a salvage yard before buying a new one and try that first. it could be that the wiring somehow got damaged. This is the only thing I can think of that may be of some help. the service engine light runs off the computer system where the other lights are illuminated from a separate circuit but if the dimmer control switch is moved and they work it is in that system...a short or a bad switch.
