Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
Ok so my dash lights on my instrument pannel quit working all of a sudden. i also lost the running lights. well i replaced the running light switch (both the instrument pannel and the running lights run off of) and nothing happend.. i sent it back thinking its a defective switch.. well i got that one replaced and it didnt work neither... so i hard wired the running lights and the dash lights to the head light terminal on the back of the switch and they both work when the headlights are turned on.... what could be the problem with the switches not working if we know the lights are still working just not connected to the switch
Sometimes the dash and auxilliary lights have their own fuse. Had my dash lights and tail lights go out because of a blown fuse.

Check your fuses, after replacing fuse make sure you reset.

If you have replaced the switch, and it is still doing it it sounds like you definately have a short somewhere in your wiring. On the other hand if the dimmer is in the turn signal arm ( forward bright back dim ) the problem could also be there in the dimmer switch, such as a short being caused by that dimmer switch being faulty.Auto Zone and Discount Auto Parts both test a lot of your electrical problems for free, and/or may have some knowledge to more accurately pin point the problem. Not sure about Pep Boys or some of the other discount auto part chains.

there's a button on the right side of the steering wheel that says serv push that button. It's put right there for when they use them as police cars you can cut the headlights off. You will probably notice that dash lights are on.

SOURCE: some dash lights do not work
if the headlight switch were bad....all of the instrument panel lights would be out, same with the fuse. More than likely you have some individual bulbs out, to change them requires disassembly of the dash. If you are not comfortable with that disassembly, I would recommend that you consult a shop. If you are comfortable with it, I'd say grab a Haynes book and go for it!
