The 97 Bonneville. That has. The twilight sentinel feature. The dash. Or cluster does not work none of the int light works and the fog lamp all fuses are goods

Twilight feature is used by the BCM to turn on the headlights when light levels diminish. Dash, cluster lighting is controlled by a rheostat near the headlight switch. The rheostat is rolled up for brighter lights. If this does not work the interior module may have burned out or the rheostat may be bad. If interior lights come on when rheostat is rolled fully up it most likely is OK. Interior lighting module is located above the headlight switch beside the cluster on the left side.

Before you replace the switch, test it at the dash connection and see if it is getting a signal from it. The lights are made to dim when the lights are turned on and is a separate circuit than daylight running.

Parking +taillights wont shut off

Is the problem that the lamps stay on indefinitely? I would suspect the headlamp switch first, because it is where the circuit is powered. Does this Aurora have anything like Twilight Sentinel? It could also be a cause, if it is in the off position and the lamps stay on. Twilight Sentinel uses a timer and a relay, either of which could have gone bad. Then again, if you have something laying on the dash that may be covering up the photocell (usually in the center at the bottom of the windhield), then the BCM (body control module) thinks it's always dark and the lights won't turn off right away even in broad daylight.

There is an illumination fuse located in the dash fuse box. It is typically a 5amp fuse. Pull the fuse out and see if it is blown. Try replacing the fuse and see if it blows again, if it does there may be an additional problem.
Good luck.

My headlights come on but my taillights have just stop working.But when I press the brake they come on.What do I surpose to do?

Check your fuses first. In a '92 Roadmaster, they would be number 14 and 15, light blue 15A fuses. I am not sure about other years, but your owners manual should tell you. Otherwise it could be the headlight switch, or the Twilight Sentinel Module if your car has the option.
I had a similar problem a few months ago with my '92 Roadmaster Wagon. My problem was due to the Twilight Sentinel Module. If your parking lights do not come on (dash lights, too), but the headlights do when your Twilight Sentinel should turn them all on, try to use the rocker switch to turn on the lights. If the parking lights come on with the rocker switch, I believe you need a Twilight Sentinel Module. However, if you do not have a Twilight Sentinel Module, or your lights do not come on using the rocker switch, you may have a bad switch or faulty wiring. The Twilight Sentinel Module is located way up under the dash, to the right (passenger) side of the steering column where the column goes through the firewall. It looks like the one in the picture, and could be off white or gray, or perhaps a different color.
