Question about 1994 GMC Safari
Headlights dont turn on when switch is flipped,loses instrument panel instead
When you say you 'lose instrument panel', does that mean instrument panel lighting or the gauges go dead?
When you flip off the headlights, does the instrument panel come back? If it does, forget the fuse box.
If it's the instrument lighting, I'd be looking at headlight switch itself. In Safari's, the headlight switch and panel dimmer switch reside in one assembly. Coincidence? I think not.
I recommend replacing the switch. You can find one at a salvage yard for $5.00.
When you do the replacement, inspect the plugs and wiring attached to the old one for anything suspicious (loose wires, frayed insulation, bare wire, charred wire, etc.)
Let me know how it turns out.
If this works out for you, please take a sec and rate my solution.
