Headlights, interior lights and radio not working on 1989 corvette. checked fuses and they seem to be ok.
If a good visual inspection showed you nothing like a broken, pinched or cracked wire. Check your ignition relay to see if it is good. You can use a 9 volt battery with some wire and touch the wire to the battery then to terminal 85 & 86 on the relay. If you hear it switching it is good. The relay should be under the hood in the fuse block terminal. Something I seen in the past with the same situation on the same vehicle was water in the passenger side tail light. This causeed the ignition switch to short out and changing it fixed the issues. If your relays and fuses are good and you would know that for sure because you tested them with a test light or ohm meter than I would go after the ignition switch. Unfortunatly if you don't know what your doing and it is a wiring issue you may not figure it out. There are a number of things that could cause this issue. Not working could mean the lights are flickering and you can here clicking. I'm assuming the vehicle starts. More detail could help diagnose the root cause.
