Question about 1986 Chevrolet El Camino

1 Answer

Just picked up 86 El Camino. The headlight switch will activate parking lights when pulled to first position. Will not activate head lights in normal mode in second position but will work for brights when pulled into final position. Will switch replacement fix this or is it something else?

Have you tested the lights themselves? Suspects are the lights, dimmer switch and possible but not likely, the light switch.(don't think they used a relay on those.)

No parking lights.. Head lights and brake lights work. No power getting to parking light bulbs. All fuses in panel test good. Need good wiring diagram to chase wires. Any suggestions on problem or where...


You can try an internet search for the wiring diagram. No power to all the parking lights? Then probably the light switch. Make sure you have power to both sides of the fuse. If not the either wiring from the switch or the switch itself. Good luck.

most likely a weak fuel pump or a clogged filter. Check fuel pressure with a gauge or as its bogging down spray brake cleaner in the Throttle Body. If this allows it to increase RPM then its the pump or filter.

Have you checked the breaker and the hi/low beam switch for power? Did you look at the connectors in the switch plug? I have a really poor diagram that seems to be non-specific on this. Also, if you have a headlight delay module check that also.

1964 El Camino headlight problem


Do you have high power globes fitted more than 65W.
If so you will need a relay to supply H/Lamps as the original headlamp switch has built in circuit breaker only good for about 15Amp
