    Vehicle is an '84 Blazer with a 350/TH350

    Is there a fusable link that has the tail lights, front running lights, 4 way flashers, and dash lights routed through it?

    All of these circuits are not working. I checked the fuses in the fuse box, but they are all fine. Oh, and my brake lights and blinkers are still functional.

    At first, I was thinking that maybe the light switch was going out, because the tail lights, running lights, and dash lights are supposed to come on when you pull the light switch into the first position; but then I tried the 4 ways, and they do not work either.

    Is there a fusable link at the starter that protects these circuits?

    Thanks,

    Thomas.

    Are ALL the dashlights out, or just the directional indicators?

    actually, the directional indicators and high beam indicator are the only lights that are working.

    As bizarre as this sounds, it might work - try beating on the wiring harnesses going into the fuse block with something soft, like a shoe. I used to have to do this about every 3-4 months on my old 83 pickup to keep the lights working. Time, corrosion, and the fact that it was a former gov't truck made the wiring a bit testy. After that, it's time for fun with the volt meter[​IMG]
