Light switch, fuse, or relay. Check under the hood for a relay box. The headlight relay should click when the switch is turned on. Any more questions, please let us know.

06 Malibu LT Dash lights shut off

hi, gm vech. are elec.complex with logic that is all there own. im a retired ford tech, and gm would drive me crazy sometimes. now some ideas, your dash light are controlled with an ecm, keep in mind, your dashlights and tail lights are on the same circut. i would check your batt. cables, if your ground cable has a high resistance it could cause issues. in fords they had bad dimmer switches that would cause the same issue. if you have someone with an obd2scanner it might have a code.hope that helps.

What can cause total battery discharge?

Leaving any light(s) or appliance on such as the radio or something plugged in cigarette lighter socket, bad alternator / serpentine drive belt, frozen belt pulley, bad alternator. Be sure your underhood light, map light, courtesy or dome light and cargo light are shutting off properly and not causing a parasitic drain. If you got a battery light on the dash while driving or engine running, probably replace the alternator.

Driving lights and dash lights blowing 15 amp fuse

From your description this looks like overcharging. Check your charging system for overcharging and the wiring. A loose connection to the regulator can cause a surge in charge voltage and let out a very high voltage.

1992 Cadillac Brougham 5.0 litre (Chevy engine) Digital dash goes dark. Tap on plastic face and dash would lite up. That no longer works. Is there any way that I can check it. Can I drive the car...

U will need to remove the dash and send it in for repair, this is caused by a defective light driver circuit, no u most likely can't drive it without the dash in place
