Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

Keeps shorting out. First the dash lights go, then a couple of days later the rear lights go. Brake lights still work. If you replace the headlight switch it all works again for a week and then the dash lights go, followed by the back lights and the buzzer to tell you you left the lights on.

Check your headlight switch power wire. Could be shorting out there somewhere.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Tracing down a short causing my dash lights and my tail lights to not work after a near lightning strike ?


The running lights and dash lights are on the same circuit.The brake lights and turn signals are on their own circuit.You need to use a 12v test light to see where the circuit is broken,starting at the fuse,then the headlight switch,then the dash harness.(If the headlights work,you at least know the headlight switch is getting power).

you have an e-brake switch shorted to ground the only light that goes on is the brake light on the dash when you engage the e-brake. check for fryed wires near the e-brake pedel and lever assy.

I have a short to ground problem with my tail/crtsy light circuit ( keeps poppin fuses when the light swith is pulled to on position) also dash lights & tail lights don't work but interior light is on...


Try removing the bulbs from the rear tail lights you have one 2 bulb system shorting out, so one at a time remove the bulbs then replace the fuse and see which one is bad or just buy new bulbs and replace, also could be front running light blinker light. But sounds like brake light to ground threw bulb.

Dash lights went out first


no single sensor would cause all of that. Sound like you have a short in a wiring harness somewhere. I would take it to a dealer for an extensive check.

Look up under dash where brake pedal pivots, you should see a switch that is activated by pedal arm.
