Update info
The problem was in my back brake anti-lock brakes. Just unplug the connector on back of the fluid reservoir and the light goes out. But of course you don’t have anti-lock brakes any more.

There's a switch on your emergency brake that the indicator (on your dashlight) operates from. Sometimes it slips in its bracket and gets out of adjustment causing your dash light to stay on. Its located on the upper part of your emergency brake pedal. Hope this works for you. Goodluck.

How to replace oil pressure switch on 1988 Chevy Silverado 350 engine 5.7 liter

Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help.

aaah!! the wonderful chevy 350. Probably the best engine ever made. It has had a track record few other engines can match.

Enough of old school. Unless they have moved the sensor in the last 30 years, you should find the sensor below the head 1/2 way to the oil pan.

Remove the electrical connection on the top and using the proper open ended wrench unscrew the sensor. Replace with new sensor and reattached the wire and you are home free.

If I forgot something or I can be of further help feel free to call or email me. Either way, please rank my advice so I can become a better helper in the future.

1988 toyota pick up has no tail lights or dash lights

The tail light relay is under the plastic panel near the fuse box on the DRIVERS side. Yes I have had this problem. So in desperation I connected a wire from the battery to the lights, my wife continually ripped the wire out so I ran a hot wire to a switch and on to the running lights, turn the switch on and I have tail lights, then I noticed that with the switch off I could turn them on at the light switch. Possibly fumbling around reconnected something. I have tested every relay, fuse, wire for voltage and continuity and had zero results. Then the switch, who knew?
