Lights

For some reason the only lights that are working on my truck are the reverse lights. When its dark and the headlight switch is turned off the back light is lit up but as soon as I turn the switch on the back light goes off and none of the lights come on (headlights, tail lights, driving lights). The dome, cargo, and brake lights do not work either. I have checked the fuses and they are all fine. Any insight to what this may be would be greatly appreciated.

I MAY NOT BE OF MUCH HELP

. BUT I MAY BE ABLE TO GET YOU A WIRE DIAGRAM FROM "MITCHELL I" OF THE EXTERIOR LIGHTING

I NEED MORE SPECIFIC INFO. LIKE THE "EXACT" NOMENCLATURE OF YOUR TRUCK AND THE ENGINE SIZE. ANY OTHER SURPRISES LIKE DRL (DAYLIGHT RUNNING LIGHTS) ETC. ETC.

SOMETIMES THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF DIAGRAMS FOR EACH VEHICLE, BEING SPECIFIC HELPS ME FIND THE CORRECT ONE

THE "MITCHELL I" DIAGRAMS SHOW LOCATIONS OF COMPONENTS (LIKE FUSES AND FUSIBLE LINKS)

A DIAGRAM MIGHT HELP YOU NARROW DOWN THE PROBLEM, THEY ARE DARN EZ TO READ!

I WORK UNTIL ABOUT 1800 HRS E.S.T. TOMORROW, SO I WON'T BE ABLE TO LOOK IT UP. UNLESS YOU RESPOND FAST TONIGHT, BEFORE I HIT THE SACK!

Sorry for the delayed reply I have been out with family. The truck is a 1995 Chevy Silverado c1500 W/ the 4.3L v6. All lights are stock and the only lights it has are the stock lights that came on the vehicle (High beams, low beams, amber driving lights, corner lights, and tail lights.) A wiring diagram would be great! If you need more specifics about the vehicle please let me know.

Yes, this helped a great deal. It turned out to be a wire coming off the switch that had been cut. Thanks a lot for the help. Sorry for the long wait my family and I have been on vacation
