Its either a short or the switch is defective. Remove switch from electrical connector and use an ohm meter to test their resistance.
If resistance is high replace switch.

Car will Cold Start, after getting hot it will not start until it cools off.

I have a 1981 corvette I put freon in it and 1 line is cold 1 line is hot contro l door is closing from hot to cold but will not cool.

Check that your cabin air ducting does not have disconnects and verify the fan is blowing air through the cooling condenser coil. Something may have fallen down through the windshield defroster slots and jammed the fan.

My instrument lights not working on my 81 corvette

Check the fuse to see if it is blown,be sure to have the head lights on,and the dash dimmer on all the way bright,when checking the fuse,if it is not blown,check the fuse to see if it has voltage on that fuse,if it does not,then replace the head light switch.If the fuse has voltage to it,then either a bad connection at the cluster,or the bulbs are burned out in the cluster.
