Why would a Chevy S10 die whenever you open a door or turn on the dome light or the headlights?

Sounds like the alternator is not putting out enough power to run both the engine and the lights, so when the lights come on there is not enough juice to fire the plugs as well.

You need to periodically replace the headlights on your Chevy truck when the headlights start getting dim. You can purchase replacement headlights from retailers such as Parts Source.

Your headlights would come on and the light would speed ahead of the car at 186,282 miles per second.

The headlight fixture probably contains moisture on the inside. When the headlights are "on", the moisture clouds the light beam, diffusing the light.

If you leaned out of your car and meaured the speed of the light coming out of the headlights, you would find that it's leaving you at the speed of light.

TRY CHECKING TO SEE IF YOU HAVE A HIGH BEAM HEADLIGHT OUT. tHIS WILL CAUSE THE PROBLEM YOU HAVE.
