Sorry about the delay.

When the right low beam goes out the park and instrument lights go out?

What lights still work?

Do you have any blown fuses?

for the first question. I still have drivers side light, brake lights and dash lights. Fuses that blow are the 10 amp in trunk for parking/lower instrument lights and the 10 amp under hood for passenger side low beam
Chevy Mechanic: GM Bob, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Because you are blowing two different fuses.

I would see if you can see any wires damaged on the right side by the headlamp assembly.

Than I would remove the right side headlamp assembly and look at the wires behind it.

Also in spec the wire harness on the assembly. I have found melted connectors.

Let me know what you find.

Thank you
