    Can you get a pic. I have the dash out of my truck right now.
    As soon as the kids are in bed i will run out and look for a brown wire. Can you explain it better that just "brown"??

    I just looked. The only brown wire i found goes into the headlight switch. It is part of the same plug:dunno:

    the brown wire comes out of the top of the switch, it has a plug head, but i can find no where it plugs into ? a pic would be great. its attached to the switch, maybe its used to jump something, i dunno. thanks for posting. :bow: :D

    i do know the brown wire that goes into the plug that goes to the light switch is for tail lights. i would guess its an outlet for cab lights but thats just a guess never seen a blazer with factory cab lights but that doesnt mean they didnt use a 1 ton light switch in a k5. just a random guess and stab in the dark you could try a test light on it...............

    I think you are on the right track with the cab light thought.
    I have an 85 1 ton cab that has the brn wire in it . (it runs to the over head cab lights)At least i think it is brn. It has been a while since i looked.

    possible column shifter indicator light

    there is a tan wire hanging from both of my blazers steering columns. i never knew what it was. yesterday i had to open up my column and it was the shifter indicator light. dark brown wire is attached to the accessory circuit on general motors vehicles.
