Question about 1992 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

I replaced a left tail light on my '92 Chevy Cavalier and the instrument gauges and the rear head lamps went out. The same lamps work for the turn signal and brake lights. Is there a fuse that controls both of these outages?

I have 03 Chevy tracker and tail light , dash light won't come on. I checked fuses. Is there any thing else I can check ?


Turn the parking lamps or headlamps on in order to illuminate the instrument panel and instrument panel cluster lamps. Voltage applies at all times through the TAIL fuse to the tail relay. Turning the turn signal/headlamp switch to the PARK or the HEAD position provides a ground path to the coil side of the relay to G202. The ground path energizes the coil of the relay. This closes the contacts in the relay. The closed contacts apply voltage to the IP dimmer illumination controller and all the illumination lamps. The illumination lamps are ground through the illumination controller. The controller is located on the left side of the instrument panel. Since the illumination controller is ground to G200, the lamps illuminate when voltage applies. The intensity of the instrument panel and the instrument panel cluster lamps is adjusted by the controller (4). The controller controls the intensity of the lamps by controlling the amount of current from the lamps to ground.Check the tail relay !

How do i find the talight relay sensor for a 1997 chevy cavalier


No such thing , tail lights get power from headlamp switch . When you turn on park or head lamps . tail lights light up . License plate lights come on as well as side marker lamps . Unless you thing of the turn signals an hazard lights . There is a flasher relay for that .
Turn/Hazard Flasher
At the left lower instrument panel, near the steering column

Tail lights, instrument panel lights, and license plate lights not working. Fuse blows immediately when changed.


that line on that fuse is shorted, the fuse saved the fire.
we use an ampclamp DC ammeter to find the wire that is shorted
and the actual point of short.

the park-tail circuit (tail fuse, right) is the most complex of all.
20 lamps inside car, and many out side, it is the hardest to find of all shorts. but not with the tool
first check for damage behind all park lamps
i bet the fuse blows in park (1st click) not head lights. right?
side lamps the 4 front rear park lamps, some call it tail its not really tail now, was in 1920 ,not now. park is everywhere.
but the fuses can be marked tails, for fun .
imagine, calling the 2 front lamps tails. and are on .(my on going joke)
sidelamps,
the inside lamps are many too.
all dimmable lamps. so turn the dimmer down to zero and see if fuse blows now, NO?, bingo.

the best way to fix this is , visual inspections for collision damage or wire hacks in the cab.
then the fuse is pulled and circuit breaker inserted 15amp
(they sell em)
then we connent the ammeter to the wire (output of fues)
i push the switch and amps goes to infinity and the CB trips
if follow the cables, and find what line is shorted.

i missed one problem
on the rear or front 4 corners of the car may be twist lock blubs.
like 1157 or? these love to short. push in lamps never short.well not the lamp actual.
in not sure what lamps the 06 uses, but replace the brass based lamps. (in park tail ckt)

I have a 98 chevy malibu. the tail lights, running lights and instrument lights do not work but head lights do


The good news is that all of these problems stem from the same source: the 15A PARK LPS fuse in the underhood wiring harness junction block. When you set the turn/headlamp/wiper switch to PARK, the park lamp relay in the junction block closes and power is applied to the front marker lamps and the park filament of the front park/turn lamps as well as the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps.

As for the instrument lights, that same PARK LPS fuse applies power to the same turn/headlamp/wiper switch that, when set to PARK or HEAD applies power to the variable panel dimmer switch which lets you set the illumination level. Switch output is applied to the lamp dimmer module and module output passes through the 10A INST LAMPS fuse in the right I/P wiring harness junction block to the instrument lamps

03 chevy venture rt.front parking light&turn light don't work replace bulb&socket


The rapid flashing occurs because of the light problem. If the 20A PARK LP fuse in the underhood fuse block is OK, the front marker lamps and the park lights should turn on when you set the headlamp switch to PARK. If the 10A T/SIG fuse in the instrument panel fuse block is OK, and the ignition switch is on, moving the turn signal multi-function switch to signal a right or left turn should cause the turn signals to flash. If this doesn't happen, check for a missing ground connection to the socket you replaced and check to be sure the replacement lamp was not forced into the socket backwards (it happens).

My dashboard and rear lights don't work


Assuming this has the V6, the 15A PARK LPS fuse in the underhood fuse block feeds constant power to the auto park lamp relay. When the relay closes, 12V power passes through the 10A INST LPS fuse in the right instrument panel fuse block to the panel dimmer switch and then to the five instrument cluster lamps.

If by "rear lights" you mean everything in the rear lamp assemblies, power for the tail lights (running lights) starts at the 15A PARKLAMP fuse in the underhood junction block, passes through the automatic lamp control (ALC) relay and the right instrument panel junction block to the tail filament of the dual stop/tail lamp and the separate tail lamp on each side. The 12 V power for the stop lamps is protected by the 20A STOPLAMPS fuse in the left I/P junction block, passes through the stoplamp switch when brakes are applied, stop filament of the dual stop/tail lamps. That leaves the turn signals and the hazard lamps. Power for the turn signals originates at the 10A TURNLAMPS fuse in the left I/P junction block and is applied to the hazard switch. Switch output goes to the turn/headlamp/wiper switch for selection of left or right turn signals. That switch output goes to the turn lamp. Power for the hazard function begins at the 10A HAZRD LPS fuse in the left I/P junction box and goes to the hazard switch. Switch output is sent to the left I/P junction box to make the turn signals flash. That's it. Post a comment if you need more information.

1998 Chevy Cavalier Z24 left rear brake/turn lamps will not work


Sometimes even a new bulb will not work. If you have a Digital Multi Meter you can check that you have power going to the rear. I know that sometimes when a vehicle loses a bulb in one end that it can make the other end stop working. With that said, I suggest that you double check to see that the front works. I used to own a 98 Cavalier RS with the 2.2 liter motor and I know that there are fuses under the hood and behind a little door on the drivers side in the car. Might check fuses under the hood also.
