Customer Question

Burnt out light switch and connector replaced. It restored the headlights, but disabled the tail lights - but only when the headlights are on. Running lights, which were always on by default, are also gone.
JA: Have you checked the bulbs? Have you checked the connection?
Customer: the connections are good. the bulbs in the tail lights work whenever the headlights are not turned on.
JA: What is the model/year of your Chevy?
Customer: 97 S10
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes. I have no money for a qualified mechanic. Replacing the headlight switch and the connector pig tail is the extent of the repair, so far.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Dome light and control panel (which has a dimmer switch) aren't working either.
