Question about 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
When I switch on the headlights the interior dashboard lights do not come on and the radio lights go out.
Does the car run fine and start fine if you don't turn the head lights on ? The symptoms you describe here suggest a battery that is run down, in need of charging or a faulty battery, however if the same batter starts the car without a problem then you have a much more tricky problem to sort out as it seems your lighting circuit is then producing a direct short on power circuit resulting in nothing working. Do the headlights actually come on when you do this and stay on while every thing else goes off ?
