JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

JA: It's good that it's giving you information about the problem. The Chevy Mechanic will know what to do. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Check the radio and ac and window switches as well. Lou

Dimmer wheel dims/lightens dome light. Replaced this yesterday, hoping it would be a fix. All lights work at night or if I manually turn on headlights in day time. All lights except intrument lights work in daytime on auto
