92 S10 When turn on HeadLights, Dash Board lights n Guage stop

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 could have 2 bad headlight bulbs.
You have to check the fuses for your dash lights.

SOURCE: headlights and dash light dont work

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.

SOURCE: Turn signals dont work headlights dont dim heater fan doesnt work

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.

I have a 92 VW Golf, and I cant get the low beam headlights to come on, or the interior dash lights to come on either. The High beams will come on, and the rest of the lights work fine. Only the dash...


Sounds like you have a bad headlight switch. I would also check fuses 1&2 in the fuse box, those are for the low beam headlights, and fuse 3 is for the instrument panel lights and the license plate lights. All 3 should be 10 amp fuses.

You need a new headlight switch most likley. Try turning the knob to dim and brighten quickly and push in and out on the headlight between parking and headlights.

Ignition module failure how would I know?


All Fuses? Under hood & down by left foot? Sometimes 30/40A fuses can blow & still look OK. Check them with a meter.

1997 Chevrolet Headlight problem


did you try removing the DRL fuse to disable the daytime running lights, and double check your bulbs and fuses for the regular headlights? I'm not much of a mechanic but I'll take that fuse box before messing with anything else.

My headlights come on but my taillights have just stop working.But when I press the brake they come on.What do I surpose to do?


Check your fuses first. In a '92 Roadmaster, they would be number 14 and 15, light blue 15A fuses. I am not sure about other years, but your owners manual should tell you. Otherwise it could be the headlight switch, or the Twilight Sentinel Module if your car has the option.
I had a similar problem a few months ago with my '92 Roadmaster Wagon. My problem was due to the Twilight Sentinel Module. If your parking lights do not come on (dash lights, too), but the headlights do when your Twilight Sentinel should turn them all on, try to use the rocker switch to turn on the lights. If the parking lights come on with the rocker switch, I believe you need a Twilight Sentinel Module. However, if you do not have a Twilight Sentinel Module, or your lights do not come on using the rocker switch, you may have a bad switch or faulty wiring. The Twilight Sentinel Module is located way up under the dash, to the right (passenger) side of the steering column where the column goes through the firewall. It looks like the one in the picture, and could be off white or gray, or perhaps a different color.
