Lighting issue

Asked by Jul 15, 2016 at 01:32 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr LS 4WD Standard Cab Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Alright the problem I have is mind boggling and I
cannot figure it out. I have a 1997 Chevy s10 LS
4x4 and I recently replaced my gauge cluster
lights.. once I put the bulbs in and reinstalled it..
everything worked fine excepted for the lights
themselves.. when I turn on my headlights.. they
are suppose to light so I can see the gauges.. well
none of them light and in place of them lighting are
both my turn signal lights lighting up and staying
solid.. how would I go about fixing this?

Check the turn signal lamps outside the vehicle it sounds like you may have some cross connected filaments or possibly some wiring issues with the turn signal circuits. As far as the dash illumination you need to check to see if your getting power to the cluster from the headlight switch, that circuit is fused, so check the fuse first, if it's not blown then proceed with the circuit testing.
