Question about 1997 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

The driver side headlight and tail light will not turn on even after the bulbs were replaced.

    Wigged wiring harness at the hole in the firewall where the headlight wiring runs through toward the front of car and the headlight started working but simultaneously lost the two rear running lights/park lights (right and left)
    AND lost the gauge cluster lighting. ALL FUSES in the fuse block are good - No power is getting to the bulb socket at each of the rear parking lamps. Therefore we have a Frigged up wiring under the dash --looks like another dive under the car and under the dash to fix the wiring situation (had similar problem on '95 suburban ).

With headlights off, tail lights and brake lights work. With headlights on, tail lights work. But only one brake light works (drivers side). Why doesn't passenger side brake light work?


Replace the right rear brake light bulb. It is possible that the filament has burnt out and has fallen across to rest on the brake light filament. This would cause the condition you are experiencing.

Right front side turn signal does not work replaced all bulbs and checked fuses headlight flashers work when hazards are on front to back except driverside turn signal ,in dash right stays solid left


I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken.
Good luck.

I recently had some front drivers side damage to my car. The head light was smashed and the wheel well pushed in far enough that it occasionally rubs against the wheel when I make right turns. I've managed...


Mr Pinske,

The rear running lights aren't on the same circuit as the headlight(s). To get the car legal for
night driving, replace the broken headlight (both need to work to drive legally at night),
and tackle the running lights as a separate project.
First thing to check on the running lights - the bulbs. Why: incandescent light bulbs that are
on at the time of an impact cannot withstand the impact and the filaments can fail, so fixing
your rear running lights may simply be a matter of replacing the two light bulbs.
If the bulbs are ok, your accident has caused a wiring fault, which you will locate
between the ignition switch and the rear running lights.
Here's the manual on how to replace the headlight:

HEADLIGHT REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Non-European Style

  1. Remove the headlamp bulb retaining screws. Do not touch the two headlamp aiming screws, (at the top and side of the retaining ring), or the headlamp aim will have to be readjusted.

Fig. 4: Once the retaining ring screws are removed, the ring can be pulled away

  1. Pull the bulb and ring forward then separate them. Unplug the electrical connector from the rear of the bulb.

To install:

  1. Plug the new bulb into the electrical connector.
  2. Install the bulb into the retaining ring and install the ring and bulb.
  3. Install the trim panel.
Replacing the European style headlights is a slightly different procedure.

Bulb only illuminates when i engage turn signal.


Hi: tail is on its own circuit and utilizes the longer thinner element in tthe bulb --- the brake and turn utilize the short thicker element in the bulb---- two different circuits. If bulb fails on tail ligh then the bulb is more than likely burned out. When you take the bulb out, look at the elements and you should see a broken thin filiment. bulb is bad, replace. good luck

Rear driver's side tail light goes off when break pedal applied


I had the same problem. They were on when the headlights were on, but turned off instead of brightening when I pressed the brake. I replaced the bulb and now it gets bright when I press the brake instead of turning off (like it should).

Turn signal


Go to your local NAPA auto parts store and get replacement tail lights circuit boards. This should solve the problem. I did for my daughters van.

Headlight replacement instructions


Release the hood latch inside the Rodeo. Raise the hood and look down behind the headlights. The old bulb and assembly are held into the headlight from the back side of the the headlight. There is not a great deal of room to work behind the headlight because of the battery on the passenger's side and the air cleaner box on the driver's side.

Grip the large round plastic nut with your hands and give it a quarter turn counter-clockwise. Carefully remove the head light and plastic nut. Look for the release lever to depress and pull on the old bulb at the same time. It will unplug very much like your computer power cord. Be careful not to drop the plastic nut.

Now plug in the new bulb and replace the plastic nut. Carefully insert the bulb into the headlight and give the plastic nut a clockwise quarter turn and try the new light.

I just replaced both of my headlights last night and I am an accountant.

Good luck!
