Question about 1993 Chevrolet Lumina APV

Headlights The dim lights are not coming on automatically nor with the switch. They come on only when they feel like it. I do have high beams all the time. When I take the key out, there is a dinger warning that will not quite until I hit the dash above the steering wheel.

Sounds like a broken wire in the dimmer switch or a short in the wiring. Before replacing the whole switch because it takes removing the steering wheel to get to the screws holding it in, try moving it around slightly with the lights on to see if it changes or not.

Headlights wont work on dim, only bright


Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.

The only thing that all of your problems have in common is the light switch and the dash wiring harness. The stereo is linked to the light switch because of it's illumination feature' You need to test the light switch with a test light by probing the wires at it's plug.
