The noise probably has something to do with the problem and noises can't be correctly diagnoised unless heard. Take it to the shop.AnswerLate model Chevrolets were designed with the most horrible battery terminals I have ever seen! It's just a guess but I've seen it on several other Chevys of that era (Tahoes, etc). The terminals appear to be tight but they make poor connection. I'm not a professional mechanic but on that vehicle that would be the first place i'd look.
Day Light Running Lights.
lights are fused in fuse block under driverside but gauges are cables
you have a shorting wire someplace
Shift into neutral or park.
daytime running lights for chevys are automatic. you cant turn them off. all you can do is control the high and low beams.
Should be in the fuse box under the hood on the drivers inner fenderwell.
If they are stock then there electric.
Could use more info.
Check the fuses.
check your fusible link,its connected to your positive battery cable,it could be burnt or swollen.
Check the fuse for the brake lights. It should be marked stop/haz on the fuse box cover.
If there is no brake lights on a 1998 Mazda pickup, check the fuse. If the fuse has blown, the lights will not work.
How many1996 Doge Ram pickup trucks has burned do to a short of the head lights?
Evidentally the lights were wired up wrong. You will have to take ti to someone and have it streightened out. Are you sure they don't work? They only come on when the engine is running and the vehcile is in gear. If you just start the truck up and look for the lights, they will not be on. It has to be in gear.
The lights need to be taken out with a screwdriver Phillips usualy
push in on your dome override button twice. Note you will have to do this everytime you shut it off. the engine has to be running when you do this,this also disables the automatic headlights. Hope this helps.
Richey cintorino Check the fusable link, that caused all my guages to go off on my 1987 pickup.
blown fuse or blown fusible link.
Could be an internal short in the module. Had this happen on a '62 Chevy pickup headlight switch
When one of your gauges shows something abnormal, your "check gauges" light will come one. Chances are you're low on motor oil. When you corner, the oil will slosh away from the pickup, causing your oil pressure gauge to read zero for a second. This in turn causes your check gauges light to come on, but by the time you look at your gauges, the oil has settled in the pan is your oil pressure is reading normal again. When you see the check gauges light and the gauges are reading fine, check your oil.
short to ground or a blown fuse
A dodge pickup 1500 would stall out while driving because of a defective air filter.
four screws hold the clear cover on take them out then five screws hold the gauges in take them out pull the gauges out the the bulbs are in the back
The 2003 Chevy Z 71 pickup truck fuse that controls the gauges can be found in the fuse box. The gauge fuse will be in the first column, fourth from the bottom.
