Question about 1999 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

Headlights Nope - mine has a multifunction turn signal with cruise/wipers etc so there is no dimmer - it is in the turn signal sw itself. I have been told there is a relay - there is no relay - it must be a DRL problem - the DRL has nothing to do with the low beams! This is driving me nuts! I am trying to avoid bringing it in to the dealer as it will cost me a fortune!

I'm not sure if your van may be a diferent year of what you are telling me but acording to my repair manual the head light switch for 1999 chevrolet astro is at lt side of dash,
but if you would give me the vin number for the truck i will be hable to find the right year, sometimes depends what month they been done afects the production yr,
also let me know if it has 4 or 2 wheel drive
you know a whiile ago i was having a similar problem and one of the conectors on the multifuntion switch was of by a little be one wire pull off make sure every single wire at the pig tail conector is all the way in

No Low beam head lights and no turn signals or hazard lights. Already changed the multi function switch. What to look for next?


When you had the wiring loose for multifunction switch, if possible, knowing what color wire did what, using wiring diagram, I believe you could have used jumper wire to bypass multifunction switch to see if this or that system would work, if it doesn't, the multifunction switch probably wasn't the problem. On older vehicles it was probably easier to do something like that. Could be issue with wiring in steering column or clock spring, where applicable.Your low beam from dimmer switch goes through drl relay, with relay not energized. At the low beam head lamp, tan wire is voltage, black wire is ground.

My left turn signal turns wipes on and front signal doesn't work. Whats problem


This is going to sound like a stupid question, but are you using the turn signal properly? The turn signals are on the left of the steering wheel and wiper controls are on the right side of the steering wheel on you car.

No brake light,no turn signals , no flasher lights...I have checked fuses for each and they are OK. Also all bulbs are OK. Any suggestions.


Hi!!
Your multifunction switch may be defective. Replace it. $39.99 at AutoZone
  • Combination switches operate wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmers.
  • When not replaced, wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmer, independently or as a group, will not function or turn off potentially causing safety issues.

I have no brake lights, the blinkers run really fast and if the headlights are on the blinkers will not run at all while braking. Any ideas?


Have the multi-function switch and its circuits tested. The multi function switch is the blinker arm and the components its attached to in the steering wheel column. The multifunction switch has to do with blinkers, cruise control, wipers, wiper spray, high beams and also tied in with headlight dimmers/daytime running lights(if applicable) and hazards usually.

A good place to start.

Turn signals quit working??


Good place to start is to check bulbs. Also, have multifunction switch and its circuits tested. The multifunction switch is the blinker arm, and the components it attaches to inside the steering column. Usually tied in with things like high beams, headlight dimmer/daytime running lights, wipers, cruise, etc.

Turn signals turn on windshield wipers


If your turn signal is multifunctioning (dimmer switch, cruise control, wipers, etc.) then it's probably a faulty switch. Takes about 20 minutes to replace and costs around $60.

My dash lights all go out when i try and put the turn signal on. which arnt working either. car runs fine otherwise.


Your turn signal switch is multifunctioning (controls cuise, wipers, dimmer, etc.). Your dash lights are wired into the same circuit (when you turn your headlights on, the dash lights should come on). Try replacing the turn signal switch there at your steering column. Takes about 20 minutes to install and around $60.

If you already check the dimmer definetly you will have to remove the dashboard area where the indicator is and replace those light bulbs they are tiny so careful and first check your auto parts store for correct number.luck!
