Customer Question
My instruments light in...

My instruments light in 2002 Chevy Tahoe work at night but not during day. Replaced headlight switch module but no help. Can't find a blown fuse. That they work at night but not during day.

Mechanic's Assistant: 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.

If I turn the headlight switch on during light hours. The lights work but dim as they should at night. The clock and gear indicator work day or night. They dim at night as they should.

Mechanic's Assistant: 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?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Checked fuses and replaced headlight switch.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Chevy Mechanic should be aware of about your Chevy?

Not that I know of unless you have specific questions.

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
Chevy Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok sorry for delay. Do you have the light sensor in the middle of the dash ? It's a small bubble looking thing.
