This is not extremely hard but you do need direction. Get a manual on your car from the parts store or DiSCOUNTAUTOREPAIRMANUALS.COM

On my 89 Corsica switch on column under dash and may be difficult to replace without lowering column. I unplugged old switch, plugged in new switch, set it to dim and wired it to column so now only have dim lights so this might work for you as I believe Berretta and Corsica the same for this.

The dimmer switch is on the dashboard just to the right hand side of the steering wheel

Go to Auto Zone they do it for free.........

On my 89 there is a ground wire on the body in front of battery. Bad connection will cause problem with headlights. Could be hi/lo dimmer switch under dash. Hard to replace without removing steering column but I unplugged switch, plugged in new switch, set new switch on dim lights, and wired new switch to steering column so I have lights but only dim lights

how do i replace the wires on a starter switch on a 89 ford f-150

Be sure headlight switch is ok. On my 89 there is ground wire on body in front of battery and dirty connection will activate circuit breaker in headlight switch. Could be dimmer switch on column under dash which may be hard to remove without lowering column. I unplugged old dimmer switch, plugged in new switch, set it to dim, and wired it to column so now only have dim lights( but can drive at night) as old switch still connected to activator rod which goes up to turn signal/dimmer handle.

Check repair book but my 89 has circuit breaker in headlight switch. There is ground wire on body in front of battery. Bad ground will cause breaker to activate so unbolt ground and clean connection. Could have bad dimmer switch which is on column under dash and may be hard to remove without lowering column. I unplugged old switch, plugged in new dimmer switch, set it to dim, and wired new switch to column so now only have dim lights as old switch is connected to activator rod which goes to turn signal/dimmer handle.

Buy or get from library repair book and see that switch is on steering column undr dash. I believe difficult to replace without removing steering column. On my 89 I unplugged switch, pluged in new switch, set new switch on low beam, and wired switch to column. So now I have only low beam as old switch is still connected to actuator rod that goes to turn signal/ dimmer handle. ALso, there is ground wire attached to body in front of battery. Clean the connection as bad ground can cause circuit braker in headlight switch to activate. This is just my experience, I am not a professional mechanic.

its under dash on left side of steering column theres a rod that runs from your blinker switch when you pull on it that pushes down this switch on your column It may be difficult to remove without lowering column. I unplugged old switch, on '89, pluggged in new switch, set new switch on dim, and wired switch to column so now only have dim lights but avoided paying a lot to a garage to replace switch.

The steering wheel cannot be bypassed to rewire turn signals in a 1989 Chevy Corsica. The switch for the wires is in the steering column. If the steering wheel were bypassed, the wires would not be connected to the switch.

As far as I know there is no carburetor in an 89 Chevy corsica.

Disconnect the battery for 1 hour.

Try replacing your headlight switch, it includes an internal circuit breaker that has possibly gone bad and will not reset any more. On my 89 there is ground wire on body in front of battery. Bad ground connection will keep headlights from working. Could be hi/lo dimmer switch on steering column under dash. Difficult to change without removing steering column. I unplugged switch, plugged in new switch, set new switch on dim, and wired it to column. Since old switch still connected to actuator rod going to turn signal/dimmer handle I only have dim lights but can drive at night.

my hi/lo switch just crapped and the lights died completely before the switch quit for good. Maybe that's what happened to you? If anyone knows how to change the switch on a 1990 3.1L Corsica please post. Thanks Freaker I had same problem on 89 Corsica. Hi/lo switch under dash and hard to take off unless you remove steering column so I unplugged switch and plugged in new switch and set new switch on low beam and wired switch to column. Now have low beams but since new switch not connected to activator rod (which goes to turn signal handle) as old switch still attached to activator rod, only have low beams. New switch about ten dollars. On 89 there is ground wire on body in front of battery. First, unbolt and clean ground, as bad ground can make lights inoperative so if you are lucky, cleaning ground could solve problem.

how do you replace the window regulater on a 89 cadillac deville?

I changed the doors on my 89 caprice.To change the electric switch you have to pull most of the interior panel loose from the door to get at the back of the switch .there was a blue knob on the back of the switch and I had to twist/pull this off and then pull the plug off of the switch.hope this helps.

Check the neutral lockout switch. Make sure it's functioning properly AND that it's properly aligned.

Climb under the rear wheels look for a round can with hose or metal tubing though it. In 89 or 90 I think they went with snap lock connectors. before that it was threaded.

It does not have an inertia/reset switch.

There is no such thing as an 89 El Camino

If you're thinking of a fuel pump inertia kill switch, the 89 S10 doesn't have one.

In my case it was the ignition switch itself had overheated and seized up. Replace the switch (have to lower the column, disconnect the wiring plug from the switch, and remove/replace the switch.) Clean all connections to the switch, make sure they're connected solidly and not heating up again.
