With electrical problems I always look for a bad ground wire, especially on older vehicles. Look for any wire that goes to an inner fender or the engine, there maybe a faulty relay in the circuit too. good luck, Chuck

Headlights do not work.


from the diagram I looked at, voltage to headlamp switch is hot all the time. The headlamp switch has an internal circuit breaker. When you turn on headlamps, the voltage goes from headlamp switch to dimmer switch then to the headlamps. You could have problem with dimmer switch?

My headlights have quit working on my 1994 Chevy 1500 pickup. I replaced the headlight switch but they still don't work. The parking lights come on but not the headlights


Try checking both a; your fuses, and b; check your bulbs. You should have two fuse boxes, one under hood and one in or under the dash. Check those for bad, blown or weak fuses. And check your headlights bulbs for them being good and their connection. If this doesn't fix your problem, you may check out your highbeam switch.

Where is the dimmer switch located in a 94 Chevy S10 pickup truck. Thank you


It is the thumb wheel just to the right of the headlight switch. Runs up and down. Also just below air vent.

1996 chevy s10 headlights will not burn on high or low beam .


I would take a look at your headlight dimmer switch. The dimmer switch works independent of the DRL system.
Below is the wiring diagram for you vehicle.
Good luck and let me know.
