Question about Chevrolet S 10
1992 S10 Pickup - when I turn on the headlights to to the truck, the Dash Board lights and gauges Go Out (Stop working). The dash board indicator for the four way flashers - turn on with a steady dim light.
All was working well a week ago, so I am assuming I have a short somewhere but have not had any luck finding it.
Any ideas where to look?
I had an s10 blazer years ago that kinda did the same thing. the lighter socket was shorting out. so check the lighter and any power outlets you may have first thing. if it is the lighter its gonna be hot so be careful.

SOURCE: dash lights
From the dashboard. 2 days prior to this my Airbag light fuse went out, I replaced it and now it works fine again. I am not sure if they have anything to do with eachother.

You would have to check and see if you are getting any power out of the light switch. There is a seperate wire for the headlights and the dash lights.

Did all these problems happen all at one time?? If so you may have a bad body ground. Try running a electrical wire from the (-) negative side of the battery to the body and see if this works. Be sure this wire is to a place with no paint as low voltage electricity will not flow through paint.
A). If not try replacing the turn signal flasher for the turn signal problem. This is usually the culprit and it's easiest and cheapest to replace. The turn signal flasher will be found under the driver side dash next to the hazard flasher. Turn the hazard flasher one to locate it. If you want try swapping the turn signal flasher with the hazard flasher to see if this fixes it. They are the same style flasher.
If this doesn't work you may a faulty turn signal switch or some wiring issues.
B). It could as simple as the head lights bulbs need to be replaced, it's rare but I have seen when both bulbs blew at or near the same time. If your able check the voltage at the head sockets.
C). Could be a bad blower motor or switch. I'm not sure if these models have a resistor block or not. The resister block controls the electrical current going to blower motor which controls the speed of the blower fan.
