    Dear fellow Chevy's. My 1976 K10 Chevy's interior lights do not work. I have checked all the bulbs and they are still good. The fuse is also fine. Has anyone else had this problem....? Im hoping it is not the printed circut because they are 85$ to replace! Can anyone shed some light in my cab? Im tired of using a flashlight to see how fast im going.
    Thanks in advance....

    start at the wires going into the circuit board for elec. and work your way back from there,,if you have power going into the board,,then it's shot,,you might be able to just forget the whole circuit board and just go to a local auto parts store or truck shop and get new wireable light's,,then just cut out the back of the dash and and screw the new ones in place. All that you would need to do is run a hot and ground from your existing wire loom.You could even make them work on the dimmer like the old ones !

    does yours have a seperat switch to turn them on or are you trying to turn them on with the headlight switch? if it is the headlight switch i would replace it and then give it a try they are about $12 at any parts store

    Does your horn work? Both my horn and interior lights went. I found that they were on the same blown fuse.
