Headlights, radio, cluster or interior lights dont turn on at all???
Hello there I have an 89 caprice that the lights were working fine and now the interior light, cluster lights, radio or my headlights wont turn on. I did check fuses and non are blown, whats the next step or want do you guys think it could be?
thinking about getting the light switch replaced but dont think it would help why the radio or interior lights dont come on.
thanks any help appreciated

I had some weird electrical issues like you are describing and it turned out to be the battery in the car was failing and shorting internally.
Radio on, wipers going, lights coming on, signals reversing ( right flashing left) etc.
May be totally different problem in your case but thought I would offer it as one check.

The dimmer circuit goes through the headlight switch, so all those lights have that part in common. I would at least take it out and have a look, you'll probably find its burnt.
