My dash, odometer and tail lights do not work. I have checked all fuses and they seem to be fine.
Also, the warning chime that sounds when the door is opened and the headlamps are on is sounding even when the headlamps are off. The brake lights and Headlamps do work. Could this be a faulty headlamp switch?

Thanks,

Allen

Did you test the fuses with a test light?Did you test the fuses in the underhood power dist center? Do the front running lights work, but not the rear?

THE "TAIL LIGHT", "DIMMER" & "PARK LOCK" FUSES ARE NOT BLOWN BUT THERE IS NO POWER TO THE FUSE BLOCK. THE TEST LIGHT DOES NOT LIGHT. OTHER FUSES SEEM TO HAVE POWER

THE HEAD LIGHTS WORK WHEN SWITCHED ON MANUALLY. THE AUTOMATIC HEADLIGHTS DO NOT WORK. THE RUNNING LIGHTS AND TAIL LIGHTS STILL DO NOT WORK. ALSO, THE "HEADLIGHT LEFT ON" BELL STILL SOUNDS WHEN I OPEN THE DRIVERS DOOR EVENTHOUGH THE HEADLIGHTS ARE OFF.

JUST A REMINDER, I JUST INSTALLED A BRAND NEW AC DELCO "HEADLIGHT SWITCH" AND THAT DIDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM.

I WILL DONATE AGAIN TOMORROW.

THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE. :

There are a few fuses in the underhood power center that feed th einterior fuse block, use a test light and check them. There are also some fusible links at the starter, test those with a test light as well.
